Diadema cigars are really something else. The minute you get one in your hand, you’re thinking, “What the hell? Is this what 8 inches really looks like?” (Don’t let your lady see these cigars.)
But yes, a Diadema cigar is generally around eight inches long, with a ring gauge in the 50s or even 60s. It’s a monster smoke for those times when even a Churchill seems like it won’t cut it. A Diadema is a statement cigar, or a celebration stogie for times when you want your cigar to be seen, not hidden. This is a great cigar for smoking when you just got a huge promotion, or when you just closed a massive deal. And the more people who get a look at it, the better.
Diadema cigars are boss smokes.
For those who aren’t familiar with the word, it’s pronounced dee-ah-DEH-ma, and comes from the word “diadem.” If you’re not royalty, you might not be familiar with that root word, either. It’s a kind of crown-like headband. A diadem is not a full-on crown with a ton of height – more understated than that. It’s more similar to a tiara.
Ok, enough about that. Let’s talk cigars.
A number of leading brands felt the need to roll up these Diadema cigars, which barely fit in a box. High-quality examples with great reviews include the Oliva Serie V Melanio, God of Fire 10th Anniversary, Tatuaje Miami, La Flor Dominicana Double Ligero Chisel, and cigars from A.J. Fernandez and Joya de Nicaragua as well.
Diadema cigars, due to their size, are all-day smokes. A graduation barbeque, for instance, would be a great time to pull one out. Given how much tobacco there is, we have to imagine that Diademas are often not completed, and there’s no shame in that. Diadema cigars are great for setting down for a while and coming back to at a later time. There’s no requirement to plow on through in one shot.
Of course, if you’re a prolific cigar smoker, have at it.
One last note before you head off to order a box from our shop: a Diadema cigar is a Figurado cigar. This means that instead of the standard rounded head you get with a parejo style cigar, the Diadema has a tapered and often squared-off head. The chisel is a well-known head shape for this type of cigar.
So that’s the basic idea behind the Diadema cigar. Please browse our selection of Diadema cigars at your leisure and get yourself a royal smoking staff with glowing reviews to cap off your next crowning achievement.
