Cigar Review: Don Cervantes Masterpiece Platinum

I lit up the Don Cervantes Masterpiece Platinum, a maduro wrapped cigar that has been fermented for almost a year and aged another 7-10 years (depending on variety of breed within the cigar) before rolling.
The proper care of the tobacco makes a huge difference in all aspects of
the cigar and it’s blatantly evident in the Masterpiece Platinum. Upon
lighting the cigar, I noticed instantly pleasant aromas of tobacco and
spice that welcomed themselves without being overly aggressive. The En
Tubado bunching method of rolling cigars makes for an impressive picture
but more importantly, a tight ash that holds well enough together that
the cigar can literally stand on ash. I’ve only done this with the NUB
cigars as they’re short and stout. A tight white ash compliments the
look by holding onto the cigar for at least an inch if not more.


Flavor profile on the first third developed into a little more complexity as the cigar burned. It had an easy draw compared to the Tres Maduro (review to follow) also by Don Cervantes. The cigar paired
beautifully with the Chateau Souverain such that the flavors of both the
cigar and wine melded together to enhance my experience and enjoyment
of both.


During the last third of the cigar, hints of pure cinnamon appeared, adding a delightful taste to the deepening chocolate and cocoa taste of this cigar.
