Sencillo Platinum

Sencillo is a Spanish word, pronounced "sen-see-yo," and it means simple. Simple pleasure is the inspiration behind Sencillo cigars.

With the Sencillo cigar, Keith K. Park, the same man who created the elegant Prometheus line of cigar accessories and critically acclaimed God of Fire and Angelenos cigars, presents a great everyday smoke. Handmade in Danli, Honduras, the Sencillo blend uses Habano de Jamastran tobacco for the wrapper, filler, and binder, with Piloto Cubano tobacco added to the filler to balance out the flavor. The Sencillo is a puro, made entirely from tobacco grown in Honduras.

All of the Sencillo cigars exude a rich, spicy flavor; notes of allspice, cinnamon, and even a touch of cayenne dance across the tongue. A slightly sweet undertone tames the spicy taste. The medium-to-full bodied tobacco has the refined, leathery taste that reveals careful fermentation and aging.

Although these flavor notes carry through all of the seven Sencillo sizes, each one offers a subtly different taste.

 
 
 
 
Sencillo Platinum Robusto Gordo 56   MSRP $7.95
56 x 5 inches, 22 mm x 127
25 cigars per box (MSRP $173.75)

Wrapper, Binder and Filler: Honduras

This cigar could be considered something of a Holy Grail of cigars: a blend that is extremely flavorful yet very easy-smoking.When you first light Sencillo Platinum Robusto Gordo 56, it has a peppery kick quite a bit like the best Cuban cigars. But it quickly settles into a richly flavored smoke without bite, reminiscent of the taste of a great Merlot wine.Very soft flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg provide interesting flavor notes for this super-smooth blend.

 
 
Sencillo Platinum Robusto  MSRP $6.95
50 x 5 1/4 inches, 19 mm x 133
25 cigars per box (MSRP $173.75)

Wrapper, Binder and Filler: Honduras

The Robusto has the most pronounced and full-bodied flavor of all the Sencillo shapes.The spice notes are more intense, yet the cigar remains balanced and never overwhelms the palate.

 
 
Sencillo Platinum Double Robusto  MSRP $7.95
52 x 5 3/4 inches, 20 mm x 146
25 cigars per box (MSRP $198.75)

Wrapper, Binder and Filler: Honduras

The Double Robusto tames the Robusto's taste just slightly - it's a bit lighter, a bit mellower, and smokes a bit cooler. The spicy zest is there, but it's balanced against a stronger taste of leather, and subtle earthy flavors start to enter.

 
 
Sencillo Platinum Pirámide  MSRP $8.95
54 x 6 1/8 inches, 21 mm x 155
25 cigars per box (MSRP $223.75)

Wrapper, Binder and Filler: Honduras

The elegant Pirámide is the most visually impressive of all the Sencillos, and delivers the most intense aroma as well. The smooth, satisfying taste mirrors that of the Toro, with just a bit more of the spicy kick of the Robusto and Double Robusto.


 
 
Sencillo Platinum Gigante  MSRP $8.95
60 x 6 inches, 23 mm x 152
25 cigars per box (MSRP $223.75)

Wrapper, Binder and Filler: Honduras

The Gigante may be the most complex of all the Sencillos.The peppery taste of the smaller Sencillo cigars is present for only the first inch or so, soon subsumed in hints of nutmeg, cinnamon, cardamom, and other spices. Further down, one catches the distinctive bittersweet flavor of cocoa powder.The Gigante’s aroma recalls the experience of visiting a Middle Eastern spice merchant - it is fascinating and intricate, filled with too many scents to readily identify.


 
 
 
 
Sencillo Platinum Short Churchill   MSRP $8.50
48 x 6 1/4 inches, 18 mm x 165
25 cigars per box (MSRP $212.50)

Wrapper, Binder and Filler: Honduras

The longest in the Sencillo Platinum line, this cigar has a big, mouth-filling taste and delivers an extremely smooth smoking experience. The flavors of spice are subtle, yet still unmistakable.

 
 
 
 

Sencillo Platinum Gran Toro 56 (56 x 6)   MSRP $8.95
56 x 6 inches, 22 mm x 152
10 cigars per box (MSRP $89.50)

Wrapper: Mexico San Andres Negro
Filler: Generoso Corona and Ligero Piloto
Binder: Corojo Sol
   
The Gran Toro 56 is quite aromatic, rich in the lush, balmy aromas of equatorial lands. Although the Gran Toro 56 never bites the palate, its flavor is more robust, with the hearty, savory taste Brazilian churrasco barbecue. It maintains this intense flavor almost to the end, where it mellows out a little for a calm, relaxed finish. It almost goes without saying that the Gran Toro 56 perfectly complements grilled meats and bold wines like Spanish Tempranillos and Italian Barolos—but we like it just as much with a nice cup of coffee in the morning.
