Torch Cigar Bar in Phoenix, Arizona carries top brands of cigars from around the world. One of Torch’s best-loved cigar lines is Diamond Crown Cigars.
Diamond Crown Cigar Manufacturing was founded by Stanford Newman. Stanford was the son of Julius Caesar Newman, who founded the J.C. Newman Company. Julius Caesar Newman immigrated from Austria-Hungary in search of the American dream. He started his company in 1895. Due to his perseverance and tenacity, the company thrived.
In honor of his father’s sacrifices in founding his reputable tobacco company, Stanford Newman introduced the Diamond Crown line. Diamond Crown is a super premium brand of cigars. They are handmade by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic for the J.C. Newman Cigar Company.
J.C. Newman originally manufactured the cigar brand using Cuban tobacco in its manufacturing facilities in Cleveland, Ohio and Tampa, Florida from the 1940s to1960s. The brand was relaunched by the Newman family to commemorate its 100th anniversary.
Diamond Crown Cigars are crafted by master rollers with exceptionally-aged tobacco. The cigars undergo rigid quality testing before they are released publicly.
The tobacco used in the manufacture of Diamond Crown Cigars is still cultivated through Old- World traditions, and it shows in the cigars’ quality. The tobacco fields are still manually plowed using donkeys to avoid bruising or damaging the growing leaves.
No chemicals are used in growing the tobacco used to make Diamond Crown Cigars. The growers use GPS tracking to identify the microelements that should be present in the soil to provide adequate nourishment for the tobacco plants. Only organic compounds are used on the tobacco plants to ensure that the flavor of each leaf is unsullied.
Diamond Crown Cigars use the Connecticut Fermented Wrapper. The wrapper leaves are fermented for five years, with the smoothest leaves gathered and set aside for a second fermentation.
Diamond Crown Cigars are rolled in a 54-ring gauge, allowing for the blending of six to seven individual leaves, for a complex and unparalleled flavor. The result of the intricate growing and rolling procedures is a unique type of cigar that few aficionados can resist.
