Ashton Cigars. San Cristobal. Don Pepin Garcia. Three names that have changed the cigar industry radically over the years with their top-shelf handmades. And San Cristobal Quintessence is no different. If you haven't tried any San Cristobals yet, you're in for a real treat. I don’t know what a quintessence is, but for my money you could put this in the dictionary: “One helluva tasty cigar.”
Made at the My Father Cigars factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, San Cristobal Quintessence uses an Ecuadorian Habano wrapper most excellently. Medium to full-bodied, this one coats the palate with coffee, spice, and a rich, unique sweetness that you’ll absolutely love. The Nicaraguan binder and long-fillers grown by the Garcia family put this one over the top, into the category of “must-have.”
Great news - San Cristobal Quintessence was honored as one of the Top 25 Cigars of 2018 with a score of 92-points. Here's what the critics had to say, "an impressive combination of balance and character. It’s a leathery and spicy cigar but well layered with sweet notes of chocolate. The construction is remarkably good."
