Yep, really enjoyed this one the day I got it. Such a fantastic blend here. Maybe I m just a sucker for criollo wrappers but this really scored well with me. Despite the horrific band, this smoke burned great, the draw was just as it should be & the flavors were dynamite - maybe it was the Olor Dominican tobaccos in here that made it so nice. Solid smoke for any time of the day.
I ordered a 5 pack of the Kristoff Criolla Robustos based largely on the reviews and I was looking to try a new to me cigar. I liked the look and feel of the Kristoff but that is pretty much where it ended for me. The Kristoff criolla is so loosely wrapped that the draw is far too easy and the result is that you cannot keep the cigar lit. Even a minor pause to taste your coffee or drink and the stick went out. The burn is very inconsistent with an ugly ash. The Kristoff Criollo taste is sub par for even a medium priced cigar. It was difficult to get an accurate taste and feel for this cigar because it is so poorly constructed. I will not be trying these again and would not recommend them even as a daily smoke. Very disappointed, but for every great smoke you find there is always one that does not make the list. Kristoff Criolla Robusto is one of those that will not make the list.
This cigar does not disappoint, creamy and rich with an excellent finish. Probably the best crillio wrapper on the market. Medium in strength rich and full in flavor. A must try.11
Really EnjoyedA fine tasting and well made Cigar00
This is my favorite cigar by far, it is very well constructed, great draw, great taste from start to finish . The only negative comment about this cigar i have is sometimes it burnes uneven other than that it is one of the best cigars i have ever had and it is NEVER bitter.11

Where to start? The Kristoff was simply a fine cigar... well constructed nice and oily to the feel and smelled of deep, rich factory scents that sang out in natual goodness. Pre light flavor is complex, being light and mellow almost soft on the palate while spicy on the lips. lighting was followed by deep dark overtones of chocolate and leather that are hidden into the folds of the creamy and rich smoke. Rolling into the 2nd half followed up with the same notes, just more relaxed and now with bits of cinnamon and fruit wafting around. Burn was so-so, slightly uneven and running. Draw was fair. All issues I relate to the humidor. These need to be well kept for maximum smoking enjoyment. The Aroma of the cigar burning was pleasent to all around. This Cigar was so good my Wife even enjoyed stealing puffs. Tasty right to the NUB! Will definitly buy a box!11
This is a great mild to med cigar, from start to finish it is consistant and smooth and holds a burn, best part is the next day you don't feel like you slept with an old shoe in your mouth . . . Also, i get less complaints from my wife on the odor and as we all know, happy wife, happy life !10
Good cigar in general burn good taste great. I d recommend it01
If you have had the opportunity in your life to smoke a medium bodied REAL Cuban cigar........you know if you live in the U.S. they are no more. Well I by chance and I do mean chance got this stick by accident. Let me tell you this smoke harkens back to the 60's Cuban Blends in an almost identical smoke. The cigar looks great and smells out standing prior to lighting up. Burn is good and the draw was a little tough the first few puffs but then it becomes a huge cloud of mellow chock/nut aroma. The taste is really creamy and chocolate/nut flavor that REMAINS through out the burn. Never hot and never a change to the last puff. I don't know where this cigar has been all my life but I am darn sure it will be in my humidor in multiples from now own.00
This cigar is very smooth from the start to finish. It doesn't get bitter at the end and burns a nice white ash. This is one of my favorites, and compares to many cubans I have tried.10
