While the construction, draw, and appearance are all quite fine, the perfumey aroma of this cigar made me wonder if I was smoking tobacco or my wife's cosmetics. For $10-11 apiece, there are a lot of other cigars I'd choose instead.
After three days of break-in my Jefferson humidor has not failed to maintain perfect cigar hydration for even one day, after nine months of continuous service. Construction and finish are flawless. I m proud of this humidor and my decision to purchase it. I look forward to my next purchase of a Diamond Crown humidor.
This is hands down the best cigar I've ever had! I was first introduced to it at Fuentes Cigar Bar in Las Vegas. The gentleman working the humidor said I would like the flavor from the 5 year aged wrapper. Couldn't of been more on the money. Great burn, unbelievable taste!
I smoke one cigar a week with our golf community cigar club. I've tried many different super-premium cigars at the suggestion of my colleagues. For me, who enjoys a mild and flavorable 90 minute smoke, the DCR#1 is the best cigar I've had.
These cigars are on the expensive side, but are worth the cost. Very mellow, great flavor. Draw was excellent with an even burn. Not an everyday smoke, but you are constantly looking forward to finding a reason to burn one
This is without a doubt, one of the best cigars I have ever had. More medium bodied than the description, flawless construction, voluminous creamy smoke, never harsh. Very consistent. buttery smooth. It gets more flavorful in 2nd half. It's better than monte #2, cohiba, etc.. You do get what you pay for with this smoke!
Aromatic, it smells like fine tobacco and not a turd when you light it. It's a little harder to light, (its big), but very easy to straighten out. These would be good on a lazy morning with your coffee and during the evening with Jack / Bourbon. Probably a little too mild for Scotch. A mild cigar with some flavor...
I got a box of these at the auction. Smoked one stick so far. Good first impression, smooth and mellow, solid construction. Not ready to give it the Exceptional rating yet (as given by other Famous customers), will need to smoke another two or three.
diamond crown is one of a kind
I was pleasantly surprised by this cigar. I was expecting something relatively bland like so many other Connecticut shade wrapped cigars. Not so with this one. It had plenty of flavor including a nice sweetish finish. I m pairing with Sherry Cash Finish Lasanta Whisky and it s pairing nicely. I m on here now looking for more.
Beautiful appearance, fairly good construction. Very loose draw, airy - a tighter draw is left to be desired. Uneven burn first third into second third. Mild to Medium body at most, very consistent. A very smooth, leathery, earthy taste - no signs of pepper or spice. Beautiful flavor change at second third - opens up with a touch of molasses, something sweet amongst the earthy, leathery tones. Very, very smooth - smoke is light and airy. Very short finish.
