As the calendar rolled over to a new millennium back in 2000, a limited edition fuller flavored Montecristo cigar was released in honor of the momentous occasion and while it wasn’t around very long it was the spark that would eventually lead to one of the most deliciously satisfying Montecristo cigars of all time: Montecristo Platinum. After several blend evolutions, the Montecristo Platinum has emerged as an absolute must for Montecristo fans, as well as for all those who desire big taste, complexity and smoothness.
Each savory smoke in the Montecristo Platinum line is crafted around a mesmerizing blend of filler tobaccos from Nicaragua, Peru and the Dominican Republic that prove an ideal match to a Dominican binder leaf and supple San Andreas Cubano wrapper leaf. Once these luscious sticks are fired up, expect rivers of wood, toast, leather, nut, pepper and spice flavors to fill out the medium-bodied smoke and immerse the senses in pure cigar smoking bliss.
The Montecristo Platinum series maintains Montecristo’s legendary reputation for being complex, balanced and exquisitely smooth, yet these voluptuous creations offer a richness of character like no other Montecristo cigar. For that reason alone the Montecristo Platinum is worthy of a spot in every cigar enthusiast’s humidor.
