San Cristobal Elegancia

A different shade of San Cristobal.

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 burn 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."

Easy and reliable
Just ordered some smokes, as my local store was out. Super easy process and able to track the arrival of my shipment down to the minute. Smokes showed up well packaged and ready to fire up. No need for time in the humidor.

wish I could savor everyone as if my last.
San Chrisobal Elegancia. Nicely made cigar. Mild for me. I had some gurkha park avenue Churchills. For a mild cigar I feel they had better overall flavor. Interesting though. The gurkhas were gone and there sat my last Christobal. Boy was that nice. For what ever reason I was picking up much different notes even a slight taste of cinnamon. Was it particularly nice or was it just me savoring my last. Funny enough in my desperation of being out of stock when I got home from work I gave the box another look and behold yet one more cigar. Bonus!

San Cristobal Elegancia Imperial
Very disappointed in this cigar. For a premium cigar at a premium price, it is no different in taste to a $2 stick. I shared these with a friend and we both came to the same conclusion and sadly we couldn't finish them. Having smoked the Cuban version of this name brand cigar overseas, there is no comparison in taste, quality & finish. We were hoping for similar quality for the non-Cuban. Glad I only purchased a 5 stick sampler. Just my opinion...

We Have A Winner!
I thought if I wrote something positive about this cigar some kind hearted rep would send me a box - but then these babies are so tasty the probably don't have any left on the shelf for comps. Slow burn - mild to medium clouds of fine cigar experience - try a 5 pack and you'll be back for a box. Bud G.

Top Notch
Looking for a special occasion smoke or one that says, "DON'T TOUCH!" like a Teddy KGB's Oreos? Well, this is it! San Cristobal Elegancia has to be one of the best cigars on the market. From beginning to nub this medium smoke will delight the palate of any cigar connoisseur. I highly recommend it.

Must Have for Your Humidor!
This is now my DO NOT TOUCH cigar! I plan on buying a box this time. It's a bit spicy and leathery and creamy as you draw down on the cigar. It will delight the palate of any scrutinizing cigar connoisseur. This is even better than the My Father Connecticut cigars and those are wonderful as well!
Customer Testimonials
Bought a San Cristobal Elegancia Pyramid at the golf course the other day. The cigar was in a seal fresh pouch and was a perfect smoke in the 106 degree weather. Just ordered a box. Would recommend this cigar as it is mild and smokes real good...
Nice smoke and high quality cigar. My only grievance was the ease at which the cigar unraveled. A nice cut is important to the integrity of this cigar. Overall though, great flavor, nice array of flavors. Will definitely get these again sometime.
Starts off with a hint of bread taste, then it changes to a coffee ground taste, and finally it rounds out to a smooth blend of everything included. No wonder why they call it Elegancia! I like it.
The San Cristobal Elegancia has everything I enjoy in a good cigar. It has great construction, even burn, great draw, plenty of smoke, and loaded with flavor. Even though it is not in the low price category, I don't mind spending the extra money for the quality I receive.
The Grandioso (Gordo) is perfecto. Highly recommend.
Easy light, excellent construction, draw and burn. Heavy smoke output. Think of a more mild flavored Montecristo White but with a long, lingering and light white pepper finish after every draw.
This is an awesome smoke!
I bought a box of these at a local cigar bar when the rep was in. Picked up a half-dozen Maduro's as well. VERY well constructed, smooth and lots of smoke. I believe this brand is owned by Ashton?
AMEN BOTL's AMEN!
MY God! Someone has created Cigar perfection! I JUST finished my first one straight off the truck. And it is/was amazing!! I'm a talkative kinda guy... And I'm at a loss for words on how best to try and describe this gem?? Pre-Light was tasty and a very easy draw. Construction was flawless. Dead even burn with TONS of smoke. held a very respectable 2" solid white ash. Oh yea. It was a Robusto its size. The flavors were amazing. Woody, nuts, earth, and some hints of spice. A good one hour of Cigar smoking bliss. I bought a 5 pack on Joe's daily deal. And my only regret was not buying TEN 5 packs! If your into a solid medium to almost a full cigar? This is one you have to have. I am really excited to see what various degrees of aging does to the awesome stick!! I don't care what the price is. As soon as i'm finished writing this? I'm ordering a box! Happy New Year everyone.
I have to say, I was impressed. Nice heft, flawless wrapper, excellent even burn, comfortable draw, and great aroma. Have I left anything out? One heckuva great cigar. This one has worked its' way into my regular rotation, and that was a tough line-up to crack.
I have a thing for Churchills and this is one of the best. Excellent construction, even burn, tons of smoke, superb draw and great medium bodied flavor. Even the band is great. A bit pricey for everyday but you will impress on those special occasions.
A Don Pepin Garcia masterpiece. Takes Connecticut wrapped cigars to a new level. A great tasting, high medium flavor offering that smokes as smooth as silk. A must try for any fan of Don Pepin cigars.
