San Cristobal Elegancia
RATED 91 BY CIGAR AFICIONADO!
Stepping away from their typical image of the full-bodied cigars, the San Cristobal Elegancia brings a refreshing change of pace with this mild-to-medium-bodied blend using Ecuadorian Connecticut tobacco for its wrapper and Nicaraguan binder and filler to create a creamy and smooth cigar. The San Cristobal Elegancia is made by My Father Cigars in Nicaragua for Ashton Distributors.
Available in 5 sizes, the Churchill, Corona, Imperial, Pyramid and Robusto, the San Cristobal Elegancia will feel like velvet to the touch with its slightly oily wrapper and some sponginess if squeezed. Bound in 2 bands, one the image of the San Cristobal green parrot, the other, the word "Elegancia" displayed proudly. The San Cristobal Elegancia offers a consistent burn with a solid white ash, a perfect draw, and a 3-seam cap. Giving off a pleasant woody aroma expect to encounter notes of vanilla, oak, earth and cedar, rounded out by a mild nuttiness. Towards the end you can't miss the creamy smoothness of it as it shifts into a medium-bodied smoke.
Rated 91 for the Pyramid and the Robusto sizes by Cigar Aficionado, the San Cristobal Elegancia is a truly elegant and premium smoke and rightfully deserves the well-earned and high ratings.
