Zino Platinum Scepter

Has anybody tried these? They look/sound awfully tempting, especially the perfecto. But at the price, not being able to buy singles makes it a high-risk proposition to try them.

    I just looked this one up and ccom has singles or the 12 count drum, all in stock and ready for you to buy.

    Well I'll be damned. So they do. I ordered one, along some other onesie-twosies.

    Still, has anybody had this cigar?

    You mean you ordered two and had one sent to me, right? Ya know, for being the helpful kinda guy that I am. :) I've never had one, but I'll be interested to see how you like it and maybe I'll be inclined to buy one or two.

    Hmmm... Well, it'll be interesting to see how it turns out. At that price, it'll need to be pretty darn good for me to pony up for more of them. I'll let you guys know what I think after it's been in my humi for a while.

    Hey urbi, no that's one i stayed away from mostly because of the price .. I don't know, it just hasn't really caught my interest, yet.

    Hey Guys: I just put in an order for one of these. Has there been any update Urbino? HOw'd it go?

    ironhorse: We had discussed this cigar again in some other thread. My take on it was basically that it is a good cigar but not worth the price. I smoked the Grand Master (robusto) and found it to be a generally well constructed cigar, not perfect, with a good burn and good draw characteristics. The flavor was medium, if I recall correctly somewhat woodsy, maybe nutty, a little smokey....All in all I still contend that taken on its own it is a good cigar, when you factor in the price I think it falls short of the mark.
