If you associate the San Cristobal with a full-bodied, rich, Nicaraguan smoke, you are correct. But with their latest line, the San Cristobal Elegancia, they have created a new and refreshing image for themselves with this mild to medium-bodied blend. The San Cristobal Elegancia is created by My Father Cigars’ mastermind, Don Jose Pepin Garcia, for Ashton Distributors. For the wrapper they used a mellow and delicate Ecuadorian Connecticut tobacco, rich Nicaraguan tobaccos for the filler and binder, and a triple cap resulting in a smooth and creamy smoking experience.
Country of Origin: Nicaragua
Flavor: Mild to Medium
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade
Adorned with 2 bands, one of the brightly-colored San Cristobal parrot, the other noting the label of its name, “Elegancia,” the San Cristobal Elegancia is practically flawless to the eyes with no visible veins and a slightly spongy and velvety feel. As you light up the San Cristobal Elegancia cigar you will be soothed by its smooth mildness with cedary, earthy, vanilla and oaky flavoring and a nuttiness on the finish. But as you delve into the second half of the cigar you might notice it shift from mild to medium with leather undertones on the palate and perhaps even some cedary spice, but continuing to stay creamy and smooth to the end. The San Cristobal Elegancia burns beautifully with a tight white ash and nearly perfect draw.
The San Cristobal Elegancia was rated 91 for the San Cristobal Elegancia Pyramid and the Robusto sizes by Cigar Aficionado. The San Cristobal Elegancia is suitable for all types of smokers and is truly an elegant and premium smoke and rightfully deserves the well-earned and high ratings.
