Zino Platinum Z-Crown series

There are a couple of factors that play into why the Zino Platinum Z-Crown series is priced very high. First up is the packaging – each cigar is packaged in an exquisite blue glossy coffin. The coffins are packaged in very elegant contemporary ten count boxes featuring a mirror on the inside of the box. These ten-count boxes mean the box of the Chubby will go for $750.00 and a box of the Stout will go for $1000.00.

I won't bite.

You'd think that with all of that expensive packaging they could have come up with better names than Chubby and Stout.

Oh well, I'll likely not see nor smoke one. I could buy so many other cigars with the same funds.

I just don't understand how anyone could spend that type of money on so few cigars.

Zino platinum scepter was marketed to blacks and rap fans when it came out. It came out in an ugly gray tube, the shapes were bizarre. they marketed it with the same ridiculous names, and believe it or not, marketed it with pictures of dogs in royal costumes.



I received three review cigars from zino. All three were moldy inside the tube, I emailed the company, and they replaced them with three more tubes with moldy cigars.

wouldn't touch a davidoff unless it was free.
