Montecristo Platinum Toro cigars are handcrafted with select, Mexican San Andres Cubano wrappers and a savory, medium-bodied, 3-nation filler blend. They burn perfectly with a marvelous aroma, presenting more depth and complexity than the classic Montecristo cigars.
Perfect from the beginning to the end, burn, draw, taste. I give this cigar a perfect 100!
Disappointed to say the least. Part of the sale sampler pack. I agree with one other comment the White Rothchilde Natural 5 x 52 was a much nicer smoke. Poor draw, lackluster taste and flavor. I didn t give this smoke a chance past halfway and killed it. Will not purchase.
You are paying for the Montecristo name with this cigar. The wrapper and cap construction is actually very nice with no seams and an impeccable cap, but the taste and burn are horrible. I ve tried to smoke 3 out of a 5 pack and all had issues. It will not stay lit after 2+ months rest in a well controlled humidor. The smoke output is miniscule even with a glowing red head. After the wrapper burns back a little bit, the ash begins to bend oddly. I ve never seen another type of cigar do that.I m not a Montecristo hater. I really enjoy the Whites and I ve had no issues with them. I will never buy another Platinum though.
I smoked 4 Montecristo Platinums (Toro) to give it a fair chance, but I am sad to say I was a bit disappointed. This cigar does not hold a candle to the Montecristo Whites. Maybe I was just expecting it to be like the Whites with a little more kick. The draw and aroma were fine, but the taste and burn were not. On a scale from 1 to 10, I give it a 4. The Platinum will not get a spot in my Humidor again. I'll stick to the Whites which in my opinion are the best in the world!
