Coming in boxes of 20, the box itself has a black mirror finish to it, emblazoned with silver lettering and a logo that is quite different from the rest of the Diamond Crown line. Three sizes were released at launch:
Diamond Crown Black Diamond Emerald (6 x 52) — $20
Diamond Crown Black Diamond Radiant (4 1/2 x 54) — $17
Diamond Crown Black Diamond Marquis (5 1/4 x 56) — $19
This cigar comes in a oily dark wrapper that smells fantastic. You get a good aroma of earth and leather from the wrapper. As I started the cigar it had such a great almost sweet taste on the back end, with lots of chocolate and cocoa as I continued with it. The ash held almost perfectly through out the whole smoke.
I only had to touch it up once and had to relight it one time as I neared the last third of this amazing cigar.
As the cigar came to and end it had lots of hazelnut and a hint of wood notes. This cigar is nothing short of amazing coming from Diamond crown. Well worth the price and I’d smoke this on some very special occasions, through in the amazing packaging and boxes it comes in also makes this an amazing gift.
