Special Zino Platinum Sports Nicaraguan Wrapper

The ultra-pricey Zino Platinum Crown Series is now available with a limited—edition wrapper.

Unlike the regular Crown Series, which has an Ecuadoran wrapper, the new cigar is draped in Cuban-seed Criollo grown in the Jalapa region of Nicaragua. The new versions are available in only two sizes: the Chubby Especial, a 5 7/8 inch by 61 ring gauge perfecto, and the Double Grande, a 7 1/2 inch by 50 ring double corona.
