Diamond Crown: Robusto #4 Maduro
Product Number: 007-046-0010
The largest ring sizes of traditional handmade cigars ranged as high as 50 or 52, but Stanford knew that nothing less then a ring gauge of 54 would produce his intended results. That is why every DIAMOND CROWN ROBUSTO series cigar ranging from the 8 1/2" ROBUSTO No. 1 down to the 4 1/2" ROBUSTO No. 5, are made with a 54 ring. The DIAMOND CROWN ROBUSTO PYRAMID No. 7 is even a 54 ring, an achievement that only the most experienced and talented cigar rollers can accomplish. A 7 3/4" by 54 ring pyramid cigar is truly a testament to the talented rollers of Tabaclaera A. Fuente in the Dominican Republic.
One of the factors that makes the taste of DIAMOND CROWN cigars so special is its exclusive Connecticut Fermented Wrapper (CFW). Unlike most other quality tobacco wrappers that are normally hung in barns, dried, and bulked for a single fermentation prior to being packed in bales and eventually rolled into cigars, DIAMOND CROWN'S CFW wrapper goes through a second fermentation. Specially fermented five year old wrapper leaves are unpacked from the bale and then conditioned and graded. The silkiest, smoothest leaves are then selected and placed in bulks for a second fermentation. It is this "second curing" that evens and develops the rosado color of the tobacco wrapper and also accounts for much of DIAMOND CROWN'S sweet, smooth, rich flavor.
