In celebration of his J.C. Newman Cigar Company's upcoming 100th Anniversary, Stanford Newman wanted to develop a truly exceptional series of cigars unlike any other on the market. He didn't care what it would cost, how much time it took, or even if it would sell. Stanford was in his mid 70s and he wanted to culminate his 50+ years in the cigar business by creating the smoothest, most flavorful, full-bodied cigar possible.
Thus the creation of one of the tastiest cigars available today- Diamond Crown! One of the factors that make the taste of Diamond Crown cigars so special is its exclusive Connecticut Fermented Wrapper (CFW). Unlike most other quality tobacco wrappers that are normally hung in barns, dried, and bulked for a single fermentation prior to being packed in bales and eventually rolled into cigars, the CFW wrapper goes through a second fermentation. The silkiest, smoothest leaves are then selected and placed in bulks for a second fermentation. It is this "second curing " that evens and develops the Rosado color of the tobacco wrapper and also accounts for much of Diamond Crown's sweet, smooth, rich flavor. A 'must-smoke' for the savvy cigar aficionado!
