The Diamond Crown is a sister cigar to the famed Opus X and has become a standard in quality mellow cigars with complex flavors, but as the market moved more toward full-bodied in the late 90’s, Newman wanted to create a cigar as good as the Diamond Crown but with a full body and took several years perfecting the blend. The end result was the Diamond Crown Maximus. Similar to Fuente's Opus X Cigars, Maximus’s specially aged Dominican filler is blended by Carlito Fuente and combined with a rare Sungrown Ecuadorian tobacco wrapper watchfully grown in the El Bajo region of Ecuador by the Oliva Family, who are well known for producing the finest tobacco in the world. The blend gives the Maximus full-bodied yet smooth flavors of earth, coffee bean, and a well-balanced undertone of cedar spice.
The cigar is made in limited numbers due to the extra special aging the tobacco undergoes and is only made available to a limited number of suppliers around the world. The Diamond Crown Maximus is a truly legendary cigar, but not just in the context of the cigar itself, but also in the legendary minds and hands that came together to create it: the Newmans, the Fuentes and the Olivas.
