D'Crossier cigars are made in Costa Rica by Pure Aroma Cigars, Inc. The company is headquartered in Miami, and it's president is Isaias Santana Diaz, who was born in Cuba in 1973. At this writing, there were six lines of D'Crossier cigars according to the company's website, one of which is their Premium Blend. The Premium Blend is available in three sizes, a Torpedo (6 x 52), Taino (6½ x 54), and Doble Corona (7½ x 49). The Doble Corona is the subject of this review. This cigar is made with an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Costa Rican binder, and Dominican filler tobaccos.
The D'Crossier Premium Blend Doble Corona began with a very pleasant toasty flavor having a hint of natural sweetness. The cigar was mild-to-medium bodied, and is a very good cigar to enjoy on a warm summer day or during the morning, or any other time with a light beverage. The smoke was smooth and became creamier as the smoke progressed. I was impressed that the flavor never became bitter nor bland during the 90 minutes that it took to smoke the cigar all the way down to two inches remaining. This particular blend would be a great choice for beginners, but in a smaller size. The cigar is never intimidating nor too complex, just simply enjoyable. There is nothing not to like about the D'Crossier Premium Blend cigar, with the possible exception that the Doble Corona size might be too long of a cigar for newer cigar smokers.
Draw and Construction
The D'Crossier Doble Corona was well made and had a good draw, especially for being such a long cigar. It held a medium-to-long ash and burned evenly. During the 90 minutes that it took me to smoke the cigar down to two inches remaining, only one touch-up light was needed about 45 minutes after initially lighting up.
D'Crossier Premium Blend Doble Corona cigars are priced on the company's website at $192.60 for a box of 25 cigars. However, they are also available at select cigar retailers for a lower price.

At about $7 per stick, this is very good cigar for the price, especially when considering that the cigar will taste great for the entire hour and a half that it takes to smoke it.
