Stogie Review: Diamond Crown Julius Caeser Pyramid

The story of the Diamond Crown Julius Caeser is an interesting one, and it comes in two parts. The first part is the history of the name. Most people are already aware that JC Newman is the company behind this cigar, and it’s no coincidence that first two letters of their name and the initials of this cigar line are the same. It was made to celebrate the 135th anniversary of the founder’s birthday, Julius Caeser Newman, and coincidentally, the company’s 115th year in business.

J.C. Newman Thinks Pink

TAMPA, FL – On Thursday, April 7 J.C. Newman Cigar Company hosted a company-wide Pink Out to support a colleague with Breast Cancer. When announced to the staff, the simple idea to wear pink grew into much more. On the day of her surgery, everyone at J.C. Newman, office staff, cigar rollers, executives, mechanics and even the salesmen across the country donned their best pink shirt and handmade pink ribbons in her honor.
At 3:15 pm the group gathered on the steps to announce to Ybor City, “We Think Pink!” Tampa’s local FOX station was on scene to film the entire ceremony. Before heading back inside 12 prayer balloons were released. A cultural tradition suggested by one of the employees, each balloon included a prayer from each department inside and as a group we released them all to the heavens.
