Tasting Note
The Montecristo Platinum blend is among the most intriguing of those made at the immense Tabacalera de Garcia factory in La Romana, Dominican Republic. The wrapper is an oddity, a Habana2000 seed grown in the San Andres Valley of Mexico. The Nicaraguan binder is wrapped around a filler blend of Dominican, Peruvian and Nicaraguan leaves. The end result is delicious, a smooth, earthy, 5-by-52 smoke that comes wrapped in a sleeve of cedar and packed in a tube emblazoned with the artwork of Michel Delacroix. A superbly crafted cigar.

An attractive mini-belicoso with a silky wrapper. It’s toasty and tasty, with a medium body and notes of cream and vanilla.
