Zino Platinum Scepter Chubby
4 15/16 x 54 - Natural - Single
The Zino Scepter Chubby has a perfect mild to medium-bodied balance of flavors and aromas with a character all its own. Perfectly handcrafted in a double-perfecto shape with rare Peruvian & Dominican filler tobaccos, U.S. Connecticut binder and an Ecuadorian wrapper for a luxurious smoke.
The figurado is my favorite cigar shape and I've been making a point of trying the good brands out there. This chubby is definitely one of them for a medium strength, tasty smoke. But I have to say the smoke is not worth the price. A better medium bodied, fair priced smoke is the Avo Domaine 20 and 50. Followed by the Davidoff Perfecto and the The Griffin's Perfecto. I'm no spokesman for Davidoff, but I don't know why anyone would buy the more expensive cigars from Davidoff when the Avo is perfect for a medium smoke and the Griffin is a delicious albeit milder experience. I do love the Davidoff perfectos but won't but too many of them for obvious reasons. This chubby is a good cigar but not a worthy substitute for any of the aforementioned smokes.
Great Cigar, burns well, draw is near perfect. Smoke is creamy, thick and tastey...
Very nice cigar, nice shape, excellent draw, wonderfully blended, and a great flavor. I don't know about the price, I'd stick with a Romeo Reserve Maduro at half the price.
The burn was great on this cigar. I wish they were not so expensive. I would buy more because for a short cigar they burned nice. Usually the taste is effected when the cigar burns close but that's not the case with this cigar. It tastes very good, nutty with a hint of spice. Cool looking shape too. Feels good in the mouth - solid construction.
