Michael invited me to come over and experience his new location and immediately upon entering I noticed how beautiful and classy the lounge was, those leather tufted button chairs sure were comfortable. Everything is brand new, including the state of the art ventilation system that everyone can appreciate, from the cigar lover to the non-smoking patrons.
Torch is far from your ordinary Cigar Lounge. Being a “Diamond Crown” lounge, meaning you’ll always have access to the finest Diamond Crown series Cigars produced by J.C. Newman Cigar Company.
Diamond Crown cigars were created in 1995 in celebration of the J.C. Newman Cigar Company’s 100th Anniversary. Stanford J. Newman joined Carlos Fuente Sr. to create a super-premium cigar unlike anything that was out in the market, and the Diamond Crown’s recipe of blending 6-7 individual tobacco leaves in a single cigar was unheard of at the time. The resulting cigar was the complex and flavorful Diamond Crown that went on to become one of the most revered in the industry, landing numerous high ratings from Cigar Aficionado and securing its spot in the humidors of serious smokers around the globe.
My Cigar Pick
The Diamond Crown Julius Caeser named after the founder of J.C. Newman Cigars, is my favorite stick in the humidor. Dressed in an Ecuador Havana-seed wrapper draped over a Dominican binder, and featuring an eclectic mix of Caribbean basin and Central American fillers, this gem of a cigar is nothing short of fantastic. Enjoy smooth and robust flavors galore, including rich coffee, sweetness, spice, and wood. Pair it with a 4 roses single barrel Manhattan in the evening or a cappuccino with the paper and call it a day. it doesn’t get a whole lot better than that!
