Ligero times three.
The Kristoff Ligero series takes the traditional Kristoff blends to bold new heights, utilizing three times the ligero to produce a full-bodied, full-flavored bouquet layered with satisfying nuances, but maintaining perfect balance throughout the burn.
Ligero Criollo is a beautiful handmade with a dark, chocolate-brown color and impressive oils. Each generous vitola is made entirely with Cuban-seed long-fillers, including a Cuban-seed blend of Nicaraguan and Dominican long-fillers with ample long-leaf ligeros at play. This feisty combination is secured within a bold Dominican binder, then cloaked by a thick and leathery Honduran Criollo wrapper. Once removed from the aging rooms, each Kristoff Ligero Criollo burns slowly to produce a medium to full-bodied array of flavor, including toast, cedar, nuts, and sweet spices on the long but refined finish. The strength gradually increases throughout the burn, ending with a full-bodied, full-flavored crescendo.
Kristoff Ligero Criollo received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "This pigtailed lancer is rolled with an uncut foot. Plenty of smoke on the draw layers the palate with hearty, savory flavors of leather, sea salt and black pepper."
