Zino Platinum Crown Series has been around since 2007, but the Emperor was first introduced last year in 2009. There isn’t much information on the blend, but here is what Zino has on their web site:
“The 2010 Zino Platinum Crown Series «Emperor Edition» truly embodies what exclusivity and luxury really mean. Masterfully
blended aged tobaccos create a cigar exceptional to the sight, taste and smell. A proprietary Dominican-grown tobacco that is a cross between Cuban and Dominican Seeds binds the select Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. It is finished with a gorgeous Ecuadorian wrapper that has been specially fermented to offer such rich color, even burn, balanced flavor and inviting aroma. These unique cigars are offered in Limited Edition tins of eight cigars for your enjoyment.”
This cigar comes in at a whopping 5 x 64 and it absolutely gorgeous. The Limited Edition series feature more select tobaccos and are usually stronger than their Crown counterparts. They also demand an higher price tag. Is this high price tag worth it? Watch the video and find out.
