Montecristo Cigars, Platinum Series

Cigars: The Montecristo Platinum Series sets a new standard in hand-made luxury cigars. Rated 90 by Cigar Aficionado and crafted with a select Mexican San Andres Cubano wrapper, these exquisite cigars offer the true connoisseur a rich, sensual smoking experience.

The mild 6 Toro cigar from Altadis offers a great draw, even burn and rich and full bodied flavor. The diverse cigar has a Mexican Cubano wrapper, binder from Nicaragua, and filler from the Dominican Republic, Nicaragua and Peru.

Many years ago, a popular story was "The Count of Montecristo". It became so popular that it is now a brand of its own. Altadis introduced the Montecristo Platinum a few years ago to much fan fare. Since then, the Montecristo name has become synonymous with excellent quality and is widely recognized among cigar aficionados and for good reason.

The mild medium bodied cigar with a dark wrapper has a uniquely distinct note of cedar on the finish. The Mexican Cubano wrapper comes from the legendary San Andres Valley while the beautiful painting on the outside box depicts Havana's famous harbor and was created by Michel Delacriox. If you are a fan of the original Montecristo, you will be pleased with the Montecristo Platinum's complex mix of premium tobaccos that leave a long finish on the palate.

If you are looking to give a gift of cigars this holiday season then Altadis' Montecristo Platinum Series will not disappoint.
