The Diamond Crown MAXIMUS is a fantastic premium value cigar with a high-quality Dominican cigar with an Ecuador El Bajo Sungrown wrapper. This cigar comes from J.C. Newman Cigar Co., and the reputation of the craftsmanship of their cigars holds up when smoking the MAXIMUS.
The Diamond Crown MAXIMUS Toro is made in the Dominican Republic at Tabacalera A. Fuente, where all the cigars in the Diamond Crown line are rolled. The pre-light scent is damp earth and cocoa. At a glance, the cigar has an extremely oily, dark wrapper. The cigar features a Dominican binder leaf and is a handmade long filler cigar.
The Diamond Crown MAXIMUS has a sweet finish and from the first to the second third, the tasting notes build in strength, though the prominent pepper mellows out by the third, third. The ash is a beautiful grey and the burn is razor-sharp. This is a bold cigar that can easily be classified as medium to full in intensity and has a significant bite. The smoke is full and coats the palette. If you’re looking for a pairing, this cigar would go well with a bar of dark choclate.
Though Honduran and Nicaraguan blends tend to be the cigars that can be classified as full-bodied, this Dominican cigar definitely packs a punch. Still not convinced enough to buy a whole box? The Diamond Crown MAXIMUS can be found in the Royal Sampler and it’s worth noting you’ll get to taste each of the four cigars that belong to the Diamond Crown family.
