Diamond Crown MAXIMUS

The MAXIMUS is a follow-up to the successful original Diamond Crown. It was created ten years after the original, and it was Carlos Fuente, Sr.'s answer to Stanford Newman's request for a bolder, fuller-flavored version of the first Diamond Crown. The MAXIMUS, like its predecessor, has also received high ratings.

It has a filler of aged Dominican tobaccos. The binder is Dominican as well. Topping off the MAXIMUS is an exclusive Ecuadorian El Bajo Sun Grown wrapper. The cigar is said to have a smooth finish and contain notes of spice and nuts. The MAXIMUS is offered in five different sizes.

Brick House

The Brick House was originally introduced in 1937 by J.C. Newman. The cigar got its name as a tribute to the brick house in which J.C. Newman grew up in. It was the only house of its kind in Newman's village, and was a gathering place for the locals. When they were originally released, Brick House cigars were Cuban puros. Now they are puros, but of the Nicaraguan variety.

Each Brick House has Nicaraguan filler and binder. It has an exclusive Havana Subido wrapper, and is said to be complex and have a distinct flavor. The Brick House comes in five different sizes, and has been recognized as a great value cigar.

El Baton

The El Baton is another highly-rated line from J.C. Newman. It was originally introduced to the public in 1914 as a nickel cigar. It's still around, but you won't find it at such a bargain price. Instead, you can find it for around $5.50 per single.

The El Baton comes in three different sizes. It has a Nicaraguan filler and binder and is finished off with a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. It's a full-bodied cigar with plenty of spice and nuts, as well as hints of wood, leather, and mocha.
