Julius Caeser Newman (the middle name is a misspelling of the famed Roman emperor's moniker) was the founder of J.C. Newman cigars, a company that dates back to 1895 when Newman first rolled cigars in Cleveland. The company, now in Tampa, Florida, remains a strong force in the cigar industry. Grandsons Eric and Bobby remembered Julius with the 2010 creation of the Diamond Crown Julius Caeser line of cigars, rolled by the Fuente family. Our favorite of the line is the Pyramid, which has loads of rich coffee flavors, along with some sweet and spicy wood. This is the third cigar from Fuente to make our Top 25, tying it with My Father Cigars S.A. for most from any cigar manufacturer.
