Feb 2nd 2012 - Diamond Crown

Today brings us the Diamond Crown Robusto No. 4 in a 5.5x54 vitola. A product of the JC Newman Cigar Company the Diamond Crown is a super premium mild-medium bodied cigar. It was the brainchild of Stanford Newman for the 100th anniversary of JC Newman Cigar Company in 1995. Stanford wanted nothing but the best so he approached Carlos Fuente Sr. to accomplish this. The Diamond Crown features a double fermented Connecticut wrapper with Dominican long fillers. It has rich flavors of cedar and nuts with an underlying spice and earth that really ties together the elegance of this cigar. I chose this as today's cigar as today is Groundhog Day. Puxatony Phil is like the king of the groundhogs and with the crown on the label I figured no cigar was a better fit for today.
