Diamond Crown Maximus cigars are a full-bodied compliment to the original Diamond Crown series. Created for JC Newman by Tabacalera A. Fuente, a dark natural Ecuadorian wrapper surrounds a robust blend of patiently cured and aged Dominican tobaccos for a rich, complex, and perfectly-balanced smoke. These limited production cigars are presented in uniquely designed chests of 20 cigars that form the letter 'M' or in 5-packs. Truly a rare treat for the savvy cigar epicurean.
I used to smoke Cubans and OpusX. This cigar beats them all. While around $17-$18 per stick, it s consistently high quality in taste, appearance, draw, construction! Starts with a bit mild pepper and nut/almond flavor, as it burns becomes more almond/nutty and leather. I hate spicy cigars, so the initial pepper is minor and goes away or I wouldn t smoke them.00
Very rich (with a hint of white chocolate and Honduran mahogany), very earthy, mellow, leathery, herbal (including a breath of fennel & rosemary which are essentially never found in a cigar), soft, very complex,...full of organic nuances;...a full-bodied cigar with many Cuban attributes, that is worthy of the opulence of its golden band and its price.30
Was given one as a gift and threw it into the fire pit after about a dozen puffs. It was rolled poorly, the burn was already uneven, and it tasted horrible. About the only nice thing I can say is the label was pretty.12
Absolutely perfect cigar! This cigar may be the finest example of what a cigar should be ever created. Our friend who was gifted one, and threw it in his fire should have given it some time in his humidor. The only reason this cigar wouldn't "wow" any cigar smoker is that it was improperly stored. Otherwise, he should stick to smoking Gurkah bundles and have a seat at the kiddie table. I have had may GREAT cigars and have yet to find one that exceeds its excellent complexity and balance. This cigar is perfect. Perfect.41
