San Cristobal cigars are a a culmination of efforts by Ashton and the supreme blending talent of Cuban-born tobacco grandmaster Don José Pepin Garcia. Introduced in 2007, San Cristobal's all-Nicaraguan leaf blend includes a dark, oily wrapper and well-aged binder and longfiller tobaccos. Full-bodied yet smooth, San Cristobal delivers a profoundly complex flavor, including hints of chocolate, nuts, espresso, earth and cedar. The cigars are expertly constructed with a Cuban-style triple cap.
A Dessert cigar ..really captivating, likened it to chocolate and cherries. Smooth mellow going down spicey wrapper. Creamy and rich. Couldnt put this down. A few touch ups due to my poor light likely. White ash hangs on tight One of the best smoking experiences Ive had with hints of cardemon. All this being said this is an occasional smoke in my book its too rich, maybe too good for everyday but on a special day this is an excellent , excellent Cigar.
I allow myself one luxury...top shelf cigars. I have a small but well chosen stock of super premium cigars. This cigar rates amoung the very finest.
Excellent tasting puro style cigar. Has to be one of the best or best of its blend period. Very good taste, you could not tell it is a full flavor it is that good. Very aromatic and consistent blend and the construction is great!! You should try one, like myself i ended up buying several till my box order arrives.
