A Great Maduro!, 17th Mar 2017
Reviewer: The Cigar Authority
Once clipped with my Lotus Jaws cutter, the cold draw of the Diamond Crown is earthy with a hint of sweetness while the foot of the cigar serves up similar notes with the sweetness being more dominant.
Once I execute my light with a Vertigo Glock lighter the initial notes are sweet but they become an after thought as heavy notes of cedar become dominant with a hint of leather. As we continue through the first third a clove like element enters the mix, while the finish of the cigar is long and sweet, especially on the retrohale.
As we transition through the second third there is some definitive sweet cherry notes and cedar that is mixed together like the perfect cocktail. Some spice begins to develop on the aroma and retrohale as the cigar is definitively medium in strength but full on flavor.
As we finish the Diamond Crown Maduro, notes of leather become dominant with some nuttiness and some underlying sweetness. Through the nose the cigar there is some spice mixed in with some coffee on the aroma making this a Diamond Crown experience for the ages.
