It uses a Connecticut Havana-seed wrapper grown by the Fuente family in the Dominican Republic. Like the rest of the Diamond Crown lines, it’s made by Fuente as well. This blend uses tobacco from the same farm as Fuente Opus X.
Black Diamond has been a project in the works for almost three years. The wrapper is a Sun Grown Connecticut that was aged for 8 years and underwent extended fermentation.
Harris: I am smoking the La Palina Connecticut. It has a nice hint of vanilla, medium body
Sean: Facebook loss
Sean: Diamond Crown Black Diamond is very nice. Hints of dried fruit, heavy plum. This is outside of my normal wheelhouse cigar.
Lane: La Palina 1896 Oscuro El Ano smoking today. This cigar has the same wrapper from the same field as the Padron 50th Anniversary. I loved the Padron 50th, to me its a next level cigar. I saw this cigar at the IPCPR 2016. Story with Patrick Vivalo. Its a $10 cigar, amazing.
All Out Kings
Sean: I like the trend of the mild- medium complex connecticut wrapper cigars. I liked the Padron Damaso. It was a nice medium body connecticut cigar.
