The Good Life
J.C. Newman cigars, Edgewater Spirits and more in this month's Good Life
Diamond Crown was one of J.C. Newman’s earliest cigar brands. Stanford J. Newman re-launched Diamond Crown in 1995 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the J.C. Newman Cigar Company.
The fuller flavor Diamond Crown MAXIMUS followed in 2002. In 2010, to celebrate J.C.’s 135th birthday and our company’s 115th anniversary, Diamond Crown Julius Caeser was released.
Diamond Crown Julius Caeser cigars are meticulously rolled by hand in small batches by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic. As with all Diamond Crown cigars, Julius Caeser is held to the highest standard of quality control.
You will discover that it is the especially flavorful Ecuadorian Havana-seed wrappers combined with a smooth, robust blend of fine Dominican binder, select Dominican and Central American filler tobaccos, carefully aged for five years, that gives Julius Caeser its bold, rich distinctive flavor. www.jcnewman.com
