Diamond Crown Julius Caeser
Diamond Crown JULIUS CAESER honors our grandfather, Julius Caeser ("J.C.") Newman, a true cigar pioneer and founder of the J.C. Newman Cigar Company. Born in 1875 in a small Hungarian village, J.C. and his family sailed across the Atlantic in 1888 in search of the American Dream. After a 5 year apprenticeship, in May, 1895, J.C. started his own cigar business, rolling his first 500 cigars for the family grocer. Of the 42,000 cigar manufacturers licensed in 1895, J.C. Newman Ciqar Company is the only premium cigar maker that is still owned and operated by the founding family. Diamond Crown was one of J.C.'s earliest cigar brands. Our father, Stanford J. Newman relaunched Diamond Crown in 1995 to commemorate the 100th anniversary of the J.C. Newman Cigar Company. Diamond Crown MAXIMUS followed in 2002. In 2010, to celebrate J.C.'s 135th birthday and our company's 115th anniversary, we created a third Diamond Crown that honors our grandfather, whose likeness appears on the cigar label. Diamond Crown JULIUS CAESER cigars are meticulously rolled by hand in small batches by Tabacalera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic. Especially flavorful Ecuadorian Havana-seed wrappers combine with a smooth, robust blend of fine Central American tobaccos, carefully aged for five years, to give JULIUS CAESER its bold, rich distinctive flavor. Diamond Crown JULIUS CAESER represents four generations of family tradition and provides the ultimate enjoyment for cigar connoisseurs.
