Zino Platinum Crown Series Emperor 2009 (First Impressions)

Zino Platinum Crown Series Emperor Edition 2009 1 - Main

We will see how this goes over. Since this is a First Impressions, I just basically included my notes in the write up with a bit of editing.

Pre-light and first puffs – nice smooth oily wrapper, not much odor to it, see papers for info on it. Light up was great, first puffs were woody and STRONG. VERY loose draw that produces volumes of smoke.

First Third

STRONG – woody, coffee, and a hint of what tastes to me like dates, in the background – This cigar might kill me. Burn line is off a bit already, lets hope it straightens out. Ash is very flaky and just crumbled when I sat it on the ashtray. Burn line straightened out. Getting bit of the charred taste also, kinda like the burnt meat thing.

Second Third

STRONG – my lord I might pass out – Wow it has some strength. I have had super flaky ash and burn problems that seem to correct themselves. Can not let the cigar sit too long or it wants to go out – probably from the ligero.

Final Third

STRONG – Hitting the final third the charred taste has taken over with coffee splashed in, but the strength is VERY high. Oh yea, got the cold sweats happening and all! Still a really strong charred taste with a woodsy background. I cant taste much more than that because I think it is searing my taste buds off.

Wrap Up

Standing up was fun – wow – strong strong strong – full bodied PLUS for this puppy. Did not get harsh at the end.

I was told the flaky ash might have been caused by a dry cigar. You can see how flaky it was in the pictures before the video.

  1. LMFAO! love the pic! Nice review!
    You need to work on your tolerance my friend! There is a whole world of stuff to enjoy that takes a little palate toughening to appreciate… but they are worth it.

    I’ve had this stick.. and really enjoyed it. My only issue with this cigar was the vitola. I wish it were more of a Toro/belicoso sized vitola with a smaller ring gauge, and longer for more to experience.
    I’d agree that its full bodied, but it didn’t knock me on my ass like it apparently has done to you lol.

    To me these fit into a weird niche…
    They are too pricey for most to enjoy regularly.
    They are full bodied, and very complex, so not recommended for newbies
    Too short for a special smoke (I prefer a nice 2hr+ stick when I treat myself.. this thing barely took me an hour)

    I think these are marketed to the heart and soul of the Davidoff/Zino lines… The über rich collector, and the naîve well to do amateurs just looking for a brand name and bragging rights.

    1. that is a DAMN good cigar! i have 1 left of my 5, im not touching it for atleast a year, maybe 2. i think it will be amazing by then.

  2. I love me a full bodied cigar. I see this one made you pass out on the toilet sucking your thumb. People have paid much more money in a night for those results. I’ll have to try this stick!

  3. Great review! The marble appearance of the wrapper is awesome, I think that once you get over the experience of spending 20+ dollars on a single cigar the first time it becomes easier afterward, Sounds like an ass kicking power house, very interesting.

  4. LOL! That picture was great!

    I’m by no means a Davidoff expert, but I’ve had a few, and the Emperor is unlike any other Davidoff I’ve had. I still think it’s a cigar that would be best appreciated after big, rich, medium rare steak. Heck, maybe while eating one even.

    Regarding price, I understand that Davidoff has recently adjusted the price on these, and they are a little less expensive than when they were first introduced to the market. I’m not sure how much cheaper they will be, but that’s the word anyway.
