The appearance of the Sencillo Platinum gets a passing grade. A large band near the head showcases the Sencillo name and logo. The white and silver color scheme looks good against the dark brown wrapper that has a slight reddish tint. Beneath the band is a cigar with excellent construction. The oily wrapper has minimal veins and no major imperfections to speak of. The cigar feels firm to the touch from top to bottom with no soft spots. Right before lighting, the cold taste is reminiscent of cocoa. As for the scent, it’s spicy.

After lighting the Platinum Double Robusto, the cigar burns like a quality stogie should. There are no major issues to report. The draw is on the easy side and plenty of cool, thick smoke is produced. The ash is white in color and solid. No touch-ups or re-lights are needed.

The flavor of the Sencillo Platinum is excellent as well. A nice blend of pepper, earth, and cinnamon make up the first third. The second third offers up more pepper, plus cream, toast, and wood. The final third finishes up with cream, earth, and leather. This is a very smooth cigar with just enough spiciness thrown in.

Sencillo may translate to simple in English, but this is anything but an ordinary cigar.  The Platinum Double Robusto has it all – solid presentation, great burn, and even better flavor.  I would recommend it to anyone who loves Honduran tobacco or wants a ton of flavor in a medium to full-bodied shell.  A single will set you back approximately $7, and it also comes in boxes of five or packs of 25.  I would at least give a five-pack a shot. 

The Sencillo Platinum Double Robusto earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.
