Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Toro Cigar Review

This 6×52 slightly box pressed stick offers a dark tan wrapper with a slight red hue, oily sheen, a velvet texture, minimal veins, tight seams and a soft woody aroma. First light reveals a very loose draw, great smoke production and mild-medium soft woody flavors with a clean finish. The first third develops to a soft mild creamy leather with a touch of sweetness and a very airy quality to the smoke. Definitely a lightweight on flavor and power, great for the morning. 30 min in the 2nd third starts with the same flavors, still remaining mild and very consistant. 1 hour at the start of the last third flavors transition a bit, dropping the leather for a creamy nut. Ending at 1:15 the reminder was the same, always with a great burn and draw. Thank you very much to JC Newman/Diamond Crown for sending this for review, I greatly appreciate it!

    Dry wood – leather – nut sequence is familiar, most recently for me with Cusano 18 maduro, which thransitioned to toasted nut and a little coffee during the 2nd third, though that stick was not creamy. How do they get the cream in there?

  • I hear Richard Simmons has something to do with it.

    Careful, you might inspire an unkind Cigar Survivor Gong show entry;)

  • I take it back!!

    The creaminess in a cigar is derived from the SECO leaf on the tobacco plant. These leaves are from the middle of the plant.

    Man I love this cigar. I just tried one of the first time recently and kind of wish I didn’t because they are pretty expensive but worth it!

    Man, this stick is like $17 where I live! Thanks to your review, I won’t be picking it up, at least not immediately. I guess I expected some stronger flavors and more transitions…something more “interesting” for the price. But hey, as you say, some folks love the consistent, milder smoke! More power to em…thanks as always, Bryan.
