J.C. Newman Diamond Crown Maximus

    Characteristics Full-bodied and spicy, thanks to its El Bajo sun-grown Ecuadorian wrapper. Insider's Tip These cigars are made by Arturo Fuente for the J.C. Newman Company as a fuller-bodied version of their Diamond Crown. All are 50-ring size, contributing to their intensity over the larger 54-ring Diamond Crown. The limited-production Maximus is often difficult to find, even in the best-stocked tobacco shops. You might have better luck searching online. Five shapes are offered, with the 8 x 50 Double Corona being our top pick. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
