As a fan of cigars you inevitably have been faced with the friend or relative who is visiting and wants you to share a cigar with them.  This always leads to the internal question of what cigar to give them so as not to turn them off from cigars forever.  Sure, you can throw one of those heart pounding, peppery, uber-strong cigars at them and risk turn them off from cigar smoking forever, or you can be the true friend, and offer them a Diamond Crown cigar.


Diamond Crown cigars came to being in 1995. Stanford J. Newman and Carlos Fuente Sr. partnered to develop a super premium cigar.  A good first step was deciding that the cigars would be made in the Tabacalera A. Fuente plant in the Dominican Republic. 

All Diamond Crown cigars have thick ring gauges (ranging from 54 to 64 in the figurado’s) to provide for a fluid, consistent, smoking experience.  The wrappers are all silky smooth Connecticut fermented wrapper, selected from the best Connecticut Shade tobacco.

There are 9 sizes in the Diamond Crown line, all of which have the Connecticut wrapper and the Dominican binder and filler.  Two of the sizes, the Robusto No. 4 and the Pyramid No. 7 have darker maduro wrappers as an option as well.  These two cigars provide the only variance in the group as the wrappers are Connecticut Broadleaf.  The maduro will have a bit more kick, so they may not fit the newbie profile quite as well.  All Diamond Crown cigars tend to be extremely expensive, ranging from 10 to 20 dollars apiece, but for the experience…they are worth it.

So now that you know a little of the history, why do I think the cigar is the perfect cigar to introduce the new smoker to the world of cigar smoking?  It’s actually pretty simple; there is no cigar with a more consistent construction, consistent smooth easy flavor, and pleasing aftertaste that will leave people wanting more.  You see the key to introducing someone to the world of cigars is making them want to come back for more.  With the Diamond Crown you provide them a smooth cigar with rich complex flavors that can truly send them any direction for their next step in the world of the aficionado.
