Default Diamond Crown Black Diamond Radiant

Diamond Crown Black Diamond Radiant. J.C. Newman and Arturo Fuente have been working together for decades. And all of Newmans Dominican cigars are made at the Tabacalera A. Fuente y Cya factory. Including this Diamond Crown Black Diamond Radiant. It is a short robusto extra, where the short stands for the 4 inch length, and the extra is in the 54 ring.

This cigar is made with Dominican binder and filler. Those tobaccos come from the Fuente Estate farms. The wrapper is a Maduro wrapper from Connecticut, Havana seed. The line was released in 2016 in three different sizes. Ministry of Cigars smoked the Radiant.

The wrapper is dark, smooth and oily. The big ring has a lot of silver which contrasts the darkness of the wrapper. The ring is bright, big and of good quality. The cigar feels good, the right bounce when I gently squeeze the cigar. And the aroma is good too, medium strong, barnyard and wood.

The cold draw is great. The flavors are pepper and gingerbread. Once lit, the flavors are earthy and coffee, both quite strong. The gingerbread is there too, with a minty freshness. The cigar is well balanced. The flavors go remain in the coffee, gingerbread, pepper, leather and soil profile, with sometimes some grass, sometimes some vanilla. All with a creamy mouthfeel. The second thirds has a high-quality dark chocolate flavor with the gingerbread spices. The pepper gains strength halfway, accompanied by dried leaves, chocolate, and spices.

The draw is good. There is a lot of smoke and the salt and pepper colored ash is firm. The burn is good too. This cigar is medium-full bodied, medium-full flavored. The smoke time is two hours and five minutes

Strength: medium-full
Flavor: medium-full
