Builds to a great finish
The construction of this cigar was almost impeccable except for one very small and slight nick on the wrapper. Other than that, solid through and through. The prelight aroma profile from the foot was of fresh cut grass and a little bit of rose petals. The unlit draw after cutting was similar to the aroma, except the rose was more pronounced. Upon lighting the cigar, the initial draw produced a very pleasant flavor profile dominated by toasted oats. This flavor was also evident in the retrohale, and throughout the first half of the cigar. The second half is where the cigar really opened up and became more complex and stronger. Some additional hints of toasted cashew with an overtone of the floral that were evident in the unlit draw. In the final third, the nutty flavors and rose petal were much more pronounced, and the retrohale was exquisite. The cigar was never spicy at all. The draw was easy and produced ample smoke. The burn was perfect, never needing any touch up at all, and never extinguishing while at rest for more than a few minutes. Although the cigar started off quite mild, it turned to a medium body at the half, and finished a little more than medium. Paired it with a Glenlivet 12 YO, and it was a pleasure.

Just average
Not overly impressed with the Graycliff Platinum. Received the torpedo in a sampler and have to say I've had much better cigars for a fraction of the price. It's not every day you get the chance to smoke an ultra premium cigar, however there is nothing extrodinary about this blend. The plus is that it is very well constructed, good draw and had a perfect burn. There are numerous brands that put together a better cigar at a more reasonable price point. If you are inclined to smoke premiums and are willing to part ways with your hard earned $, you are better suited to go with Diamond Crown Maximus, Opus X or Ashton VSG (as examples IMHO)
Customer Testimonials
I got this in a Brown Bag sampler. Looked it up and saw it was fairly expensive cigar. Upon smoking it I was left unimpressed. It does not look or taste like a $15 cigar. I had 2 of these and did not care for either. You don't always get what you pay for.
Been smoking these for over a year now. I have bought 100 or so of the platinum cigars. The first one I ever smoked had a pepper bomb at the foot of the cigar and tasted kind of harsh/dry. It did mellow out eventually. They have improved dramatically with humi time. I cannot say this cigar is bursting with flavor. I can say it is very smooth and does taste great. In fact the best thing to point out about this cigar is the way it pairs with a micro brew. It is my go to micro brew cigar and will pair with pretty much any craft brew out there.
I just got one of these today in my brown bag sampler. I am so excited to have gotten one. I will let this puppy roast in my humidor for a little while before trying it.
