Get ready to take a walk on the "mild" side. A very enjoyable mild side as well. Get ready to take a walk on the "mild" side. A very enjoyable mild side as well. The Diamond Crown Robusto No. 4 is a clean and light smoke, it won't get you singing that "Irish Spring" commercial jingle, but may get you singing its praises. Before we get into the review, let it be known that Diamond Crown calls all their cigars Robustos because of the ring gauge of 54, a perfect 54! That may be a reach with the bigger smokes in the family, but the No. 4 truly qualifies as a robusto. I can see where those desiring a Rodman-esque aggressive smoke may not appreciate this cigar. It's one of the mildest cigars you'll ever smoke, and was described best by one of our reviewers..."Sure, the Diamond Crown is light and relaxed, but at the same time flavorful. If you call a Macanudo light, don't insult the Diamond Crown by using the same adjective." Me thinketh we have a future Shakespeare. A brute in your fingers, this cigar feels confident, not really caring what you think of it, she knows she's good. Dresses well too, easy on the eyes. Lights up with simplicity. Make sure you get the whole tree trunk lit, its a wide load. The flavor of the Diamond Crown No. 4 is an example of cigar consistency, what you get at the beginning, your going to get at the end. There were some comments that the cigar lacked personality, and the smoker got bored with it. Acceptable comments, but needing to be taken with a grain of salt from smokers desiring a more "robust" flavor. The No. 4 makes good "Humidor Candy". A top row smoke that makes the first glance into the humidor a pleasant one. The price is going to set a few people back. We've seen them anywhere from $8 to $12 for the No. 4, with the larger sizes easily getting above that. Speaking for myself, we keep some of these around the Top25Cigar "end table" humidor (we're looking for a bigger one, great problem to have!) as one of our semi-regulars. A semi-regular is a cigar that has it's place, but is probably priced out of being an every day cigar. If you haven't tried this Fuente Family cigar, it's worth a try. Vital Statistics: Shape = Robusto Length = 5 1/2" RG = 54 Wrapper = USA - Connecticut Filler = Dominican Republic Binder = Dominican Republic Estimated Cost = $8.75
