The Diamond Crown Story

In celebration of J.C. Newman Cigar Company’s 100th Anniversary in 1995, Stanford Newman joined Carlos Fuente, Sr., to develop an exceptional series of Super Premium cigars. Stanford dreamed of making the best cigar in the world with no regard for how long it would take or how much it would cost, his dream was realized in the Diamond Crown cigar.

Handmade in the Dominican Republic by the world-renowned Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cia, Diamond Crown cigars are rolled by the very best Master Rollers and undergo rigid quality standards before public release.

Today, the Diamond Crown name has been extended into a complete line of cigar merchandise and accessories as well as a luxury experience in the Diamond Crown Cigar Lounge.
