The responsible for the creation of these excellent cigars is the Oettinger Davidoff Group, a well-known Swiss company of luxury products, whose main activity is tobacco. In 2003 they launched the Zino Platinun brand worldwide, as a tribute to Zino Davidoff, one of the best-known names in the history of cigars.
Zino Davidoff, a Jew of Ukrainian origin born in 1906, arrived with his parents in Geneva, Switzerland, in 1911, who opened their own tobacco shop a year later. In 1924, he traveled for 6 years through various Latin American countries, two of which he spent working on a tobacco plantation in Cuba. When he returned to Switzerland in 1930, he took over the family business, turning it into a very lucrative business. In 1970, the Oettinger Group, also Swiss, whose origin dates back to 1875, bought the Zino store and began to create Davidoff as an international brand, establishing itself in countries such as the Netherlands, France and the United States.
Zino Platinun was developed in association with Peter Arnell, the famous designer and publicity campaign creator, and Steve Stoute, a renowned author and marketing entrepreneur, both from the United States. The brand is comprised of the Crown and Scepter series, and the alliance established for its creation itself reveals a novel approach to design, marketing and advertising. The inspiration for the brand was Zino Davidoff's adventurous spirit and his desire to enjoy life to the fullest, resulting in an exceptionally refined blend from the highest quality tobaccos, made from tobacco leaves aged for approximately four years.
Zino is positioned in a very particular market segment for premium cigars: that of consumers seeking to discover new taste sensations. Although they are difficult to find, according to many connoisseurs, they are among the best cigars, full of rich flavor and bold aromas.
In May 2021, Oettinger Davidoff relaunched the line in three formats: Short Torpedo (4 x 52), Robusto (5 x 54) and Toro (6 x 50). Regardless of size, all cigars share the same blend consisting of filler cigars from Honduras, Nicaragua, and the Dominican Republic, all unified with a Nicaraguan binder and finished with an Ecuadorian wrapper.
In our store is available the Zino Platinum Art Miami Limited Edition Exclusive Series Grand Robusto, which shows how art can be the perfect companion to the unique blend of tobaccos used in these cigars, aged for at least five years. It was made in collaboration with the urban artists collective UR ??of New York as a tribute to the city of Miami and its legacy to the world of cigars. This gem of a cigar is made with a blend of Dominican and Peruvian long fill, with a Connecticut binder and an Ecuador-Connecticut wrapper, to produce a medium to full bodied smoke.
This special edition of Zino Art Miami is an exclusive from Mike's Cigars, Miami's flagship store, which is also honored with this exclusive series.
