A Smooth and Rich Complement to the Diamond Crown Line Steps Out Of the Shadows
J.C. Newman Cigar Company introduces Diamond Crown Black Diamond

TAMPA, FL – 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.

Name: Diamond Crown Black Diamond
Sizes Available: Robusto No. 3 (6 ½” x 54), Robusto No. 4 (5 ½” x 54), Robusto No. 5 (4 ½” x 54), Figurado No. 6 (6” x 46/64), Pyramid No. 7 (6 ¾” x 54)
Factory: Tabacalera A. Fuente

Diamond Crown is one of the most respected brands in the cigar industry — respect earned from its marks of distinction: rigid quality standards, commitment to consumer satisfaction, tradition and excellence. Whether it is our DIAMOND CROWN cigars or DIAMOND CROWN exquisite collection of leather cases, humidors, ashtrays, or other accoutrements, every cigar and accessory bears these marks of distinction.

Prestigious Network of Lounges Gets Exclusive Cigar
Diamond Crown Lounges will offer limited Julius Caeser cigar

TAMPA, FL – This fall, Diamond Crown Cigar Lounges nationwide will be selling a new lounge exclusive Julius Caeser vitola, the 1895 Perfecto Special Reserve.

“We have gone back and forth on the idea of a lounge exclusive cigar for years. If we were going to offer one, it needed to be unique,” said J.C. Newman President, Eric Newman. “Once we saw the demand for the 1895 size at Diamond Crown Red Carpet events, we decided it was the perfect cigar to offer at our lounges exclusively.”

A classic and challenging cigar shape, the 1895 perfecto is the epitome of J.C. Newman Cigar Company’s historic image. This timeless vitola rolled with a bold yet smooth blend is perfect for the distinguished connoisseur.

“Our Diamond Crown Cigar Lounges are some of the most reputable and well respected shops in the industry; we consider them our most important partnerships,” said J.C.

Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Brand Expands
J.C. Newman introduces new 6” x 60 Julius Caeser cigar

TAMPA, FL- Everyone knows that bigger is better when it comes to diamonds. The new Hail Caeser cigar from the Diamond Crown Julius Caeser line is our biggest cigar yet. Made with the same award winning blend as the original Julius Caeser, this 6” x 60 cigar is sure to please those looking for a long smoke and a relaxing night.

Like its predecessor, the Hail Caeser wrapper is grown in the rich South American soil of Ecuador with a Havana seed, and filled with a blend of Dominican and Caribbean Basin tobaccos. Like a fine wine, the tobacco is carefully aged five years in the Dominican Republic heat and humidity. This process gives the Hail Caeser the robust and distinct flavor that so many have come to love.
“Everyone who tries the Julius Caeser immediately becomes a fan. The 6” x 60 Hail Caeser is meant to make that enjoyable smoking experience last even longer” says Bobby Newman, Executive Vice President of J.C. Newman Cigar Co. “These cigars are designed for good times with good friends.”

Brick House Maduro Brand Expands
New Brick House Maduro Robusto released after consumer demand

TAMPA, FL – J.C. Newman Cigar Company is proud to announce the release of the Brick House Robusto Maduro, which joins the outstanding Brick House Maduro series.

The Robusto Maduro follows the popular Brick House Mighty Mighty Maduro released last year. “We experienced great success with Mighty Mighty and our team has done it again with Robusto,” says J.C. Newman President Eric Newman.
The new Robusto Maduro may be the smallest in the Brick House line, but it packs a punch into its 5” x 54 frame. The same blend that made Brick House popular around the world is used in the Robusto cigar, and has the sweet wrapper flavor that makes Maduros so unique.
“Brick House has done it again. Adding a cigar with superb quality and a master blend,” said company Executive Vice President Bobby Newman.

Name: Brick House Maduro Robusto
Size: Robusto (5” x 54)
Factory: Fabricos de Tabacos San Rafael S.A.
Wrapper: Brazilian Arapiraca
Binder: Nicaragua
Filler: Nicaragua
Packaged: Box of 25
Named after the ancestral Hungarian home of company founder Julius Caeser (J.C.) Newman, Brick House cigars have been revived from their Cuban origins into a spicier, more contemporary Nicaraguan puro. Handmade in Nicaragua, these flavorful cigars are designed to be enjoyed and shared with friends – just like J.C.’s friends and family would have done 150 years ago in the original brick house.

New Sampler Highlights Diversity in Nicaraguan Cigars
J.C. Newman introduces new sampler pack featuring Nicaraguan portfolio

TAMPA, FL –With all the highly-rated cigars coming out of Nicaragua, it’s hard to choose just one. The new Sesenta Sampler is the answer to this problem. Two Brick House cigars, one Perla del Mar and one El Baton provides a well-balanced selection of all the Nicaraguan Cigars that J.C. Newman offers.

You can start the Sesenta journey with a walk down memory lane. The strongest smoke of the four, the El Baton, is one of J.C. Newman’s vintage brands made by founder J.C. Newman himself. This powerful yet smooth Nicaraguan cigar, “stirs a sense of nostalgia for me” says the company’s President Eric Newman. “It’s like smoking a piece of history” adds Vice President Bobby Newman.
The Brick House Cigars in the set are a “Go-To” for many aficionados around the country. The Maduro is the same trusted blend that Brick House is known for, but adds a touch of sweetness, while the Mighty Mighty provides a fuller bodied, stronger smoke. With a Havana Subido wrapper and Nicaraguan Filler, both Brick House cigars featured in the sampler are perfect for any occasion.
Rounding out the foursome is the mildest of the group. The Perla del Mar features filler and binder tobaccos from four different distinct regions of Nicaragua. The cigar is described as having a mild and smooth smoke with a slight touch of peppery spice.
MSRP: $25.45

New Brand Honors J.C. Newman’s Iconic Factory
El Reloj offers consumers an American made, high quality cigar at an affordable price

TAMPA, FL – Made in the last operating cigar factory in Cigar City (Tampa, Florida), El Reloj incorporates old world tradition and popular tobacco blends to bring consumers a flavorful boxed cigar at a value price.
“When it was built in 1910, the “El Reloj” factory became the focal point of the community. Most people didn’t own clocks and watches – they would rise in the morning, eat, go to school, go to work, and go to bed – all from the hourly chime,” said J.C. Newman President, Eric Newman. “We wanted to honor our iconic building with a one of a kind cigar made in our Tampa factory.”
Featuring a blend of quality aged tobaccos from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Honduras, each cigar is carefully rolled with a rich Ecuadorian Havana Seed Sungrown wrapper the way Julius Caeser Newman made them back in 1958 when he moved his operation from Cleveland, Ohio to the “El Reloj” cigar factory in Tampa, FL.
“Legend has it that the locals used to refer to this clock as the “wishing clock.” At 9:15 a.m. there was a wishing moment where locals wished their problems away,” said J.C. Newman President, Eric Newman. “There is no doubt some of that magic is worked into our new El Reloj cigars.”
Name: El Reloj
Size: El Ocho, 8” x 53
Factory: J.C. Newman Cigar Co, Tampa, FL
Wrapper: Ecuador Havana Seed
Filler: Dominican Republic, Nicaragua, Honduras
