J.C. Newman Cigar Co., owner of the Diamond Crown and Cuesta-Rey brands, has added a double toro and robusto to its Nicaraguan El Baton line, bringing the brand to three vitolas. El Baton debuted in October with the Double Torpedo, marking the company?s first Nicaraguan puro, made entirely out of Nicaraguan tobacco. El Baton was originally one of J.C. Newman?s vintage nickel cigar brands from 1914, and was handmade at the company?s Cleveland factory using Cuban tobacco. According to Newman, the brand disappeared with the advent of machine-made cigars in the 1920s, but the new incarnation of the cigar is in keeping with El Baton?s history as a bargain smoke.El Baton is the first premium cigar released by J.C. Newman that is made from 100% Nicaraguan grown, Cuban-seed tobacco. They feature a rare flavorful Corojo wrapper with a medium-to-full body and deliver a rush of pepper and earth overtones with a slight cocoa undertone. Using all long filler, it provides you with a quality smoke with a smooth burn and a bold spicy flavor.
