We tend to throw around Spanish words like the whole country is bilingual, which clearly isn’t the case. So rather than assume you’re aware that Ceniza De Plata means “Silver Ash,” I’m here to lay it out for you, because really that’s a great thing to know when you’re talking about a cigar. The ash is so important, we all like a nice ash....!!
This ash-tastic blend hails from Kristoff’s more upscale Galerones Series, a departure for the brand in terms of looks and character. All of the handmades in the series feature a triple cap and a clean cut foot, plus the packaging and cigar bands have a more classy feel overall. In the case of Ceniza De Plata, a rich medium to full-bodied cigar with tons of spice, a smidge of black pepper, and a creamy finish, you should prepare to be fully satisfied. For this particular blend, a San Andres Mexican wrapper is placed atop a Cuban-seed Ecuadorian binder and a filler blend of Cuban-seed leaves from three distinct regions of Nicaragua. And the ash is – you guessed it – epic.
A great cigar by Kristoff. I have become a big fan of Kristoff as their cigars always have burned nice & even for me with a good draw. The only reason I gave this one 4 stars is because it was not quite the 5 that I would give the Kristoff Maduro & Corojo. I ordered a pack of these & enjoyed the smoke, was not disappointed at all. I gave the other 4 out to some of my fellow Warrant Officers to light up during our Mess Night & they were all pleased afterwards when I asked their opinion of this cigar.
