This is a follow up to the very popular Zino Platinum "The Make of New York" Collectors Edition released on May 15th. Needless to say, These boxes look amazing!
Zino Platinum contacted artist Burton Machen to bring these boxes to life. The goal was to capture the innovative potential of Los Angeles and to reflect the cities 4 key elements that continuously redefine culture: cars, film, tattoos and music. Using an Avant-Garde style, Machen designed and created the artwork around the bright orange-lacquered cigar box.
This limited cigar comes in Toro format and uses a diverse mix of special tobaccos: San Vincente Mejorado Visus Piloto Visus Olor/Piloto Visus San Vicente Mejorado Visus San Vicente Mejorado Seco Its aroma changes from sweet/creamy to a more powerful, woody note with a slightly musky/peppery touch. In the second third, the cigar draws and burns consistently. Now the woody notes are predominant, but are increasingly rounded off by sweet and creamy nuances. During the last third of the cigar, the taste is very balanced and fills the mouth. This is one collection to have!
