In a cigar world awash with the latest San Andres wrappers, double and triple Maduros, and every other sort of unique twist on tobacco, sometimes it’s good to step back and look back. Zino Davidoff, arguably the godfather of cigars, the cigar lifestyle, and the patron saint of the elegance and ritual of cigars, established himself on the world stage during a time when Connecticut-wrapped Natural cigars were the rule. Davidoff has never lost sight of their roots and maintains one of the finest stables of Natural cigars in the business.
The Zino Platinum Scepter Series is a cigar that needs no external validation. It knows what it offers. The size you have is the Grand Master, which is a big Robusto. The rich Natural wrapper is a Connecticut leaf from Ecuador and is paired with a Connecticut binder to enclose filler that smells malty and slightly tannic to add a good spine to this blend.
Just like Zino, the man, this cigar is refined and elegant. It’s not pretentious but it has all of the answers before you ask it. The Grand Master keeps its secrets but entices you with a glimpse into its mysteries.
