Very rare and often difficult to find, Diamond Crown Maximus is a full-bodied blend put forth by JC Newman after the success of the original Diamond Crown line.
This is something very rare. The original Diamond Crown line was released in the early 1990s to mark the 100th anniversary of JC Newman cigars. Since their inception, they have been a staple of quality and construction, raising the bar for all other cigar makers in the Dominican Republic. Ten years later, as fuller-bodied cigars were becoming more popular, Stanford Newman approached Carlos Fuente with a new idea for his treasured Diamond Crown line: a full-bodied version. After three years of perfecting the blend and finding just the right tobaccos, the rare Diamond Crown Maximus was born.
The Diamond Crown Maximus is made in extremely limited quantities and is only available to a handful of suppliers throughout the US. The secret to this fuller-bodied blend is its El Bajo Sun Grown wrapper, which packs a robust flavor. This wrapper is grown in Ecuador by the Famous Oliva tobacco family. This leaf in conjunction with the expert rollers at the Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic have turned Diamond Crown Maximus into a legend.
