Cigar Review: Kristoff Ligero Maduro Robusto
General Observations: Extremely consistent. The smoke was particularly thick, creamy, very smooth, and well-balanced. Though it's labeled "full-bodied," I found it more medium-to-full; medium in the first half, full in the second. Flavors of sweet tobacco, cedar and nutmeg prevailed, while during the second half, the smoke revealed flavors of cocoa and espresso. I let the cigar rest longer during the second half. Smoke never turned bitter and burned perfectly to the nub. Never needed a relight.
Summary: As I continue to smoke thruogh their selections, the Kristoff brand is becoming one of my favorites. I don't think I've smoked one yet that I didn't like. The construction is excellent, the pigtail perfectly coiled, plus, I really enjoyed the combination of flavors. There was nothing negative about this cigar. The only problem I had was taking a photo of myself smoking it because I was driving. If you like full-flavored Maduros, add this cigar to your wish list.
