Cigar Review: Diamond Crown Maximus Maduro

Initial Thoughts:

Diamond Crown is one of the most prestigious names in the cigar industry. Any cigar that bears their name is immediately in the “premium” of the premium. So, to say that I was excited to give the Diamond Crown Maximus a taste would be accurate. After lighting up the Maximus, I was disappointed to notice an uneven burn developing. The first 3/4 of an inch didn't burn right at all. The flavors are creamy with hints of spice, and the draw with the guillotine cut is perfect.

Final Thoughts:

Early on, the Maximus' wrapper began to crack. Now, before you start talking about proper humidification, let me tell you that this cigar has not been without humidification since I bought it. My humidor briefly dropped to 64% humidity after adding a fresh box of Perdomos to it, but it's been at 69% since. When not in my humidor, the cigar has resided in a travel ziplock back with a 69% Boveda pack inside. Regarding the cigar, the Diamond Crown Maximus developed a crack on the mouth-end and the wrapper pulled away from itself in many spots. I know this will be an unpopular opinion, but I wouldn't go out of my way to smoke another Maximus. Because of the dry and cracking wrapper, the mediocre flavors, and the higher price point for what should be an amazing cigar, I give the Diamond Crown Maximus a CigarScore 2
