Platinum was a great choice of a name for this line. The 92-rated Rocky Patel Platinum Robusto Oscuro (5 1/2" x 50) received such high accolades from this medium to full bodied blend. So what's the secret. There is no secret - just a quality blend of Nicaraguan long fillers, San Andres binder from Mexico and a dark, oily Ecuadorian Habano Oscuro wrapper. This is a true medium to full bodied smoke that delivers earthy tones, along with black pepper spice, and slight coffee flavors.
