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.
Well okay, maybe not the best of the best.... But the best of mid price range non-maduro Nicaraguans? Yes it is...... I am obsessed with this blend. I have all different sizes, fresh ones, 2010's, even a box of original release 2007's in this size, and this vitola takes an amazing blend and molds it into perfection. Aged or fresh, this size of this cigar is perfection of it s class. And you also have the unmatched consistency.0 0
DPG and Ashton have created the closest thing to nirvana with this stick. Perfect combination of pepper, spice and cedar makes this a perfect celebratory cigar.0 0
