Montecristo Platinum

Montecristo goes Platinum!

The biggest name in cigars has now dressed itself in a new, flashy (bling bling) band. The Platinum La Habana Series cigar provides Montecristo lovers with a bolder, richer blend. Wrapped in a dark, Mexican Cubano leaf, the well balanced blend of Dominican, Nicaraguan, and Peruvian long-leaf fillers will give you that fuller bodied cigar that the traditional Montecristo may be lacking.

Montecristo Platinum received a well-deserved 91-rating noting: "the draw imparts a hearty, meaty smoke full of wood, salty roasted nuts and espresso."

Very nice stick. Smooth even draw, no bitterness. Smoked this baby down to an inch. Mild to medium in strength but definitely medium in the flavor category. I did have one of my five pack that had a large knot in it the other four were well constructed and smoked evenly. Highly recommended.

Of all the Montecristos in all the world....
...this one walked into my life. With apologies to Bogey (who knew a thing or two about cigars!), the Platinum is in a class by itself. If Habano-wrapped perfection is what you're looking for, this one has it all. Flavor, spice, burn, and more than enough show to flash at your golf-playing buddies. Truth is, I save these for the more elegant nights on the patio under the lights with good friends and good scotch. They won't unravel, they burn even, and are as faithful as your dog. Once you start, other cigars will seem normal.

A classic, dependable smoke
Excellent construction, medium strength, effortless burn, and an explosion of flavor. By far, one of my favorite Montecristos in the (domestic) lineup, second only to the Espada. Highly recommended

Monte Platinum toro
Not the best smoke I've had and since I'm more of a mild flavor cigar lover, the robust flavor and taste wasn't to my liking. It has a good burn and draw expected from a Montecristo, so it's definitely a quality cigar. Just not my cup of tea....

Monte platinum toro
Not my favorite Monte. They came as a very inexpensive extra for an order of Churchills. The platinums tend to burn unevenly and develop a bad taste in the last 1/4 of the smoke. They do not compare well with other Monte Cristos.

Wish there were some way to select four and one-half. Well made, a taste I like, and it stays lit. All Montecristos are good and this one is a respectable member of the family. Probably not the world's best, but certainly in the top ten percent.

Probable the best cigar I've had.
It smokes nice, great burn, mild, flavorful cigar. It's not too tight or loose and it burned for a decent amount of time. The tobacco wasn't overpowering and strong and I prefer a mild full bodied smoke. The flavor profile was subtle enough to fit my ideal smoke. It did not change to much but stayed smooth throughout. I'm new to cigars, but after trying many this is my first repeat purchase.

Montecristo Platinum's average smoke for a premium
Expectations for the Platinum Montecristo were high given experience with the Montecristo brand. Yet the smoke was disappointing. The draw was difficult, the burn uneven and many of us who smoked it, found ourselves needing to relight often. Overall the flavors we decent but not rich enough to warrant the cost. Too bad, really wanted this cigar to perform better.

Best Cigar Possible
This cigar starts with a smooth crisp draw, stays bold but not over powering and remains consistent all the way through. A super-quality cigar, with a rich flavorful smoke. This is my favorite cigar and it's certainly worth every dime.

How to choose!
Us cigar smokers are like wine drinkers. The rule is: The best cigar is the one you enjoy." To one guy it's mild, to another it's full bodied (especially the 2nd half.) Which do you believe? I for one, take cigar reviews with a grain of salt. I buy, I smoke and I learn. That's how I've built my collection over the years. I go for 5 packs first, so I limit my exposure. On a comparison level, I would put this smoke alongside Monte's Afrique line. Now........Light it up my friends!

Customer Testimonials
These cigars are one of my all time favorites. I have had almost every size and I prefer the #3. It is a good value for the Montecristo line. I have smoked probably about 20 #3s over the past 3 years and the last one made me stumble around a bit. Awesome cigar...good value...good flavor!
I smoked the Platinum over the weekend and was thoroughly impressed. It is a very flavorful from start to finish. Excellent draw with amazing spicy notes. Definitely a must have for the humidor!
Friends- I have tried all the sizes of this great cigar and there is a difference. The Rothchilde Tubos (Robusto) is my personal favorite . It is a high quality smoke and the tube wrap makes a difference---more rounded and less of a hit. The Churchill will jazz you -- as noted above --give a nick-o - teen push at the half way point. I don't like that and the Roth mellows this out. A rich, nutty and leather style. No spice edges---so if you like a very rich, wood,mushroom smoke with coffee expresso overlay it is a 10. Very good burn, beautiful feel and wrapper. Flavors change after fist 5 minutes---and is just a pleasant high class smoke. Might have one touch up. Now one of my top 7 premium cigars. Go with the Roth unless you like a stong finish.
As you should expect from Montecristo, a very good, smooth, satisfying cigar. Consistently good to the end with an even burn. A solid "medium" flavor, as advertised.
Amazing! Nothing less than a 10/10! I've had them all.
Excellent smooth burning cigar. Highly recommend this aromatic and tasteful stogie.
Smoked one of these last night and all can say is wow. This was a very smooth cigar with no harshness at all to it. A med-full strength cigar. Hints of cedar and earthiness.
Picked one up at my local smoke shop last week. Wanted to mix it up try something that I normally don't keep in my humidor. I was not impressed, the cigar itself smoked and burned well but the flavor was very bland, almost non existent. it was a very light bodied cigar, very little after taste and left much to be desired. If you like a light bodied bland cigar you will probably enjoy but it seems to me to be very over priced!
althought a bit skeptical of the montecristo line, i tried this cigar (Montecristo Platinum - La Habana Series) and all i can say is bravo. a nice medium bodied cigar with a little bit of draw, this cigar cuts well, burns well, has a nice leathery aroma and wrapper (props on the eduadorian grown connecticut shade. very pretty) that will sit pretty in any humidor. it was a well balanced peppery-earthiness that gradually builds up until the end. i smoked it to the very end and i have no complaints except maybe the pricetag. a little much but a great every-once-in-a-while smokes. a definate 89.
I received the Montecristo Platinum (Montecristo Platinum - La Habana Series) in a weekly special assortment. I like the original Montecristo, and I was a bit skeptical of how it would smoke. Skepticisms aside, I decided to try it. It has this initial tough taste 1/2 way down the cigar, it was difficult to draw and didn't like the aftertaste it left in my mouth. The second half was a bit smoother, but nothing to hoot and hollar about. Honestly I have tried much better tasting and quality cigars for half the price of these (5 Vegas Series, all the Rocky Patel Line, the Perdomo Line...etc...). Really, don't waste your money - the inconsistancy of a single cigar was quite diappointing.
I tried the Montecristo Platinum (La Habana Series) after ordering one of the Friday Night Fights selection. I didn't know what I was getting but now can honestly say it's one of my favorite cigars. I'll be ordering a box next time. The blend is excellent & it smokes and draws beautifully. If your going to spend a few bucks on true premium cigar, spend it on this brand.
Out of all the various brands I've tried, the Monte Platinum is my favorite. It's a nice medium-bodied that is deceptively mile at the beginning but will leave you with a buzzing head by the tail. A real finger burner! The Platinum is such a great blend by the Montecristo folks, I heartily recommend it to anyone who likes the occasional cigar - It's too expensive to be a daily smoke, but for a special occasion it will be a real treat.
