The Montecristo Platinum Series Rotchilde is an enjoyable premium cigar with a remarkable San Andreas Habano-seed wrapper. This is a fuller-bodied smoke for those who enjoy cigars from the traditional name-brand cigar powerhouses.
The Montecristo Platinum Series is made in the Dominican Republic by Altadis USA in Tabacalera de Garcia, one of the largest factories in the Dominican. The cigar is unusual for a parejo rothchilde at 5’x50. Despite not having a cedar lining, the fine aluminum tubes which contain the cigar are a nice aesthetic. At a glance, the cigar bears an attractive San Andreas Habano-seed wrapper with a colorado or rosado coloration akin to reddish-brown leather. The spice of the Nicaraguan filler, as well as the acidity of the Peruvian filler and the richness of the Dominican filler, produces an inviting aroma. The cigar features a Dominican binder leaf and is a handmade long filler cigar.
The Montecristo Platinum Series Rotchilde has notes of cedar, salted peanuts, cinnamon, molasses, and dark roasted coffee beans. The dry pull tastes of root spices with a slightly tight draw. The tasting notes build in strength throughout the 45-60 minute smoking experience, gaining hints of black pepper and nutmeg towards the final third of the cigar. The intensity and flavor of the Montecristo Platinum Series are medium to full-bodied.
This is a very good cigar that gives the cigar aficionado an option for traveling abroad in the even they do not want to bring a travel humidor. The tubes also make a great gift for those who smoke cigars but do not have their own humidor. The Montecristo Platinum Series Rotchilde is a fast-moving cigar in retailers across the country because of its unique flavor profile. This cigar has earned its reputation as one of the most popular Montecristo cigar brands and sizes.
