Hendrik Kelner has long been recognized as one of cigardom’s most knowledgeable and respected master blenders of great tobaccos. He is the guiding force behind such labels as Davidoff, Avo, and his Zino Platinum Crown Series, brands that stand as the unparalleled epitome of smoking excellence. To this outstanding pedigree Kelner adds his Zino Platinum Scepter Series. Earning a 91 rating from Cigar Insider, the Scepter Series sells for less than half the price of the larger Zino Platinum Crown Series. Made in the Dominican Republic and dated like a fine vintage wine, the Platinum Scepter Series features rare and exceptionally fermented tobacco blends from the Dominican Republic and Peru. It enjoys the distinction of a Connecticut Shade binder and a Connecticut-seed Ecuadorian wrapper. Attested to by its rating, this is indeed an outstanding cigar.
This is a consistently great smoke. Smooth, mellow and easy draw with great flavor. Never tarry and doesn't remind you next day you smoked it.

Grand Master surprise!

I highly recommend this fine cigar be paired with a nice bottle of Pinot Noir wine, Blu-ray movie, and to be completely undisturbed while partaking in a quality moment of time and space. No phones, no connection to the outside world, remember this is your moment to be shared with only the spirit of fine wine and smoke.
