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.
