From my own collection.
Location: This review was made indoors in Mellgrens cigar lounge.
San Cristóbal is a current post-Revolution brand, launched in late 1999.
The range comprises light to medium-strength cigars, using tobacco from the premium Vuelta Abajo region in Cuba.
Dress Box of 25 cigars.
Size: 4.3×42, Petit Corona (Minutos).
Wrapper: Milk chocolate, oily and silky-smooth with tiny veins.
Construction: Firm even feel when lightly squeezed.
Cold draw: Light cedarwood note.
1st third: Starts with a toasted bread and medium roasted coffee.
2nd third: Keeps it’s previous flavours.
Burn: Burns fairly sharp, with a firm and stable white ash.
Smoke: Medium voluminous smoke with a cool feeling on the tongue and a medium light draw.
3rd third: No immediate changes, just that the flavours gets a bit stronger after the band point.
Duration: 20:20-21:20, 1h.
Conclusion: A medium bodied cigar with a medium strength profile. It’s pretty compact so it takes it’s sweet time to burn slowly.
Result: In my book this is an 88 point cigar.
