Just prior to the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas, J.C. Newman Cigar Company announced the Diamond Crown Maduro would be rebranded as the Diamond Crown Black Diamond. This release would keep the same blend.

The purpose of the change was to allow this maduro blend in the Diamond Crown line to stand out more in the line’s portfolio. The line will feature different packaging as well as a secondary band

At a glance, here is a look at the Diamond Crown Black Diamond.
