The JC Newman Family has been working on the Black Diamond for more than two years. Determined not to release the cigar until it met the expectations of the Newman family the process was painstakingly slow. The wait is over and the cigar features a Connecticut Havana-seed wrapper grown by the Fuente family in the Dominican Republic where the cigar is made. The cigar is rounded out with binder and filler from the Dominican Republic. The result is a cigar that lives up to the hype and was worth the wait. A new bar has been set for Diamond Crown and that bar is Black Diamond.
