Unlike the Zino Platinum series, the Classic blend is more than smokeable. Of course, I will not put it on my list of favorite sticks, but the Zino Classic No. 8 deserves at least one try and who knows, you may actually like it in case you're into milder, gentle cigars.
The black tube looks gorgeous and the stick itself is very attractive too, with its smooth claro wrapper.
I found these to be very skillfully rolled, all 3 that I smoked for this review had perfect burn & draw and produced impressive amounts of smoke.
The flavors are mostly vegetal throughout the smoke. It starts off with a light aroma of straw, then develops elegant woody notes. At the halfway mark, a pleasant floral taste appears. At this point, the woody notes are simply getting stronger and stronger, however, without crossing the medium-bodied limit.
It's a decent price for a well-constructed churchill.
Overall Rating :
Far from powerful, the Zino Classic No. 8 is remarkably balanced and good-looking. Beginners will find it delicious.
