Here it is…the Montecristo Platinum Robusto Single Cigar. The Montecristo brand is well known on both sides of the embargo and the most unique of the Dominican produced Monte’s is the Montecristo Platinum. What makes the Platinum so different is the wrapper, a Habana 2000 seed grown in the rich soil of the San Andres Valley in Mexico.
The Montecristo Platinum Robusto Single Cigar’s filler is a blend of aged Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Peruvian tobaccos with a Nicaraguan binder.
It seems the solid blend of filler and binder give Platinum its earthy core, and the wrapper gives it a mellow and pleasant extra special wood spice. Mild to medium bodied on the medium side, the flavor is there without overpowering the pallet making the Platinum an incredibly constructed smoke that performs famously.
