July 12, 2013 (Tampa, Fla.) — After nearly a year of strategic planning, Diamond Crown Black Diamond will be released to the public at the 2013 International Premium Cigar and Pipe Retailers show.

For years, Diamond Crown Maduro has lurked in the shadows of its Classic Connecticut Shade counterpart. Disregarded as a simple line extension, new Maduro sizes slowly entered the marketplace with little noise or promotion but this exceptional broadleaf cigar deserves its turn in the spotlight.

“Diamond Crown Black Diamond has always been one of my favorite cigars,” said President, Eric Newman. “It is a very unique Maduro, the smooth flavors are complex but complement each other the entire time.”

Like its Classic counterpart, the Diamond Crown Black Diamond’s exceptional taste comes from the five-year-old Connecticut wrapper. Starting with only the finest Connecticut Broadleaf, the wrapper tobacco is then conditioned and graded to develop an even flavor that has fully developed by the time it makes it to a smokeshop humidor.

“There isn’t a hint of harshness you can normally find in a Maduro cigar, these are exceptionally smooth with a pleasant sweetness,” said Newman.

Packaged in a striking all black box, these cigars are sure to make a statement in any humidor.
