J.C. Newman Cigar Co. Diamond Crown Black Diamond #1 Cigar of 2022 by Cigar & Spirits

“The DCBD Emerald is another stellar collaboration between the Newmans and their Arturo Fuente partners. The strength of the 2022 version has been bumped up a couple of notches from the original 2016 blend- all for the better. Flavors include bittersweet chocolate, earth and a long walnut finish. There’s a touch of brown sugar in the final third- a perfect dessert cigar but any hour of the day or night works just as well. This cigar is notable for its balance of traditional craft with an updated profile that creates a memorable smoking experience.”-Cigar & Spirits Magazine

Statement from Drew Newman:
We are very honored that Cigar & Spirits magazine has named our Diamond Crown Black Diamond as its 2022 “Cigar of the Year!”
We first introduced Black Diamond in 2016. It was a good cigar that many people enjoyed, but we weren’t satisfied with it. Both the cigar and its packaging felt a little off, and I wanted to try to make it better. After two years of work, I am very happy with the improvements we made to Black Diamond’s blend and packaging and, I am humbled by the many accolades it has already received. 
As we receive this award, I am very grateful to everyone involved in creating this special cigar, most notably our long-time partners who hand roll Black Diamond at Tabacalera A. Fuente, the world’s finest cigar factory.
My hope for our 127-year-old, 4-generation family business is that we will continue to not be satisfied and strive to handcraft better and better cigars each day.
