The 93-rated San Cristobal brand, a brand with a storied Cuban history, has been a favorite of full-bodied fans ever since its release. But now, San Cristobal shows its softer side with the Connecticut-wrapped Elegancia.
Like the rest of the San Cristobal family, this new release hails from Don Pepin Garcia's heralded Nicaraguan factory. Draped in a silky, golden-brown Connecticut wrapper leaf grown in Ecuador and jam-packed with rich Nicaraguan long-fillers, Elegancia delivers a smoke that's notably smooth and creamy, but still loaded with flavor. Medium in body and layered with notes of oak, pepper, earth, coffee, and cream, San Cristobal Elegancia is masterfully blended, elegant, and premium in every sense.
San Cristobal Elegancia received a well-deserved, 91-point rating, noting: "Finished with a three-seam cap, this robusto draws evenly. It has savory tobacco flavors balanced by sweet coffee notes that emerge midway through the cigar."
