San Cristobal Revelation

A divine revelation...

The fourth addition to the San Cristobal line is the Revelation. In a matter of a few years, this brand has swiftly proven their worth and built up a solid and enduring fan base. They have been in the game for less than a decade, but one taste of their cigars and you’ll quickly see why they have become one of the most popular boutiques out there.

These dependable handmades are constructed in Nicaragua, under the benevolent watch of Jose “Pepin” Garcia.  San Cristobal Revelation does what the name reveals itself, slowly and enticingly. Underneath a sleek milk chocolate Ecuador Sumatra wrapper awaits a hand-selected blend of Nicaraguan long-fillers. The combination is medium to full-bodied, and gently unveils a bold flavor profile with notes of earth, leather, cedar, nuts, and spice that envelop the palate deliciously.

San Cristobal Revelation received a well deserved 92-rating! Here's what the experts had to say: "First puffs of this streaky, box-pressed cigar are rich and sweet with cocoa. An underlying earthiness complements the vanilla-bean finish.."

A Cheeky Lad Indeed.
This one is to be placed on my list of 'can't afford very often but must buy again' cigars. Top notch! On the light up a noticeable hint of bitter cocoa. Cocoa is also present in the first nasal drift. The nasal drift is not bighting or stinging but pleasantly modest. I am having my very first cigar that carries the "Revelation" band. I am most pleased. I am about 1/3 of the way into this little beauty and it is becoming smother and creamier with each draw. Speaking of draw. it is even and smooth as is the burn. I purchased these cigars in a 'CI gentlemen's dues' five pack deal. Very nice and price friendly. This is a five pack must try cigar. very highly recommended. My personal review? This is a rear deck, two beverage sun set cigar with friends. Best wishes.

Best Birthday present 🎁
San Cristobal Revelation Leviathan Gordo called one of the best cigars in the world. I ranked one of the best cigars I've smoked all year. They are a medium to full body with the perfect balance of Sweetness and taste of vanilla and coco. This was better than my Birthday cake after tasting this Great rolled cigar I bought a box as a present to myself!

Stunning cigar
Absolutely beautiful cigar! I ordered a box and lit one of these babies up in Hawaii and I truly felt like I was in paradise. I couldn't be more happy with the rich complexity throughout the entire experience. First impressions; the cigar feels solid and heavy in the fingers with a spicy dry pull. The golden binders with the red parrot are just stunning. The first 1/3 is truly elegant with a smooth chocolatey draw and hints of spice in the background. The 2/3 evolves into a nutty and creamy complex with fruits and spices. The cigar burns evenly and builds up to a strong and complex finish with the cocoa, fruits, spice, cream and nuts all coming together in a grand flavor. One of the best cigars I have ever smoked!

Favorite Golfing Cigars
This is one of my "go to" cigars for golf. In addition to be an outstanding smooth and enjoyable cigar from beginning to the nub, it holds up great on the golf course where it is exposed to wind and other handling demands that other cigars just can't handle. Being a pressed cigar with a great colorful label, it draws the attention of fellow golfers. One of my favorite reasonably priced cigars.

Best Cigar out there
I've smoked a lot of Cigars, and this is my hands down favorite! I buy by the box, a little pricey, but the flavor from the Sumatra wrappers, and Smoothness are to die for!! True finger burner. Only Pepin Garcia can make a cigar this perfect!

Fantastic Smoke
I buys these guys a local shops normally, but now I buy them here at CI. Now after smoking over a hundered, in all the sizes available, I feel I can say this; these are by far, one of the most consistent cigars(cuban and non-cuban) in burn, construction, and flavor that I have smoked in 12 years. The smoke is smooth and even, with no bitter or unwanted flavors working their way in the pallet. For the price, easily my favorite smoke. I had only one time where the pull seemed harder than the normal pull, and still was not a that hard to pull. My favorite buy, and now one I know I could share with a king. If it's in the budget, get one. I highly recommend them.

5 Star Cigar
Hands down, this is my favorite cigar! Ultra smooth, Creamy, great flavor from the Sumatra wrapper, my only issue is, it burns fast. Revelations are great in the Morning, Noon, Evening, or Midnight. I crave these and just purchased another box which is arriving today!! :-)

San Cristobal Revelation
Pretty even burn. Not as flavorful as described. Box press was not a plus. Fair cigar, will not reorder in near future.

Toro review...almost 5 stars
Was very pleased with this toro and tried 11 from 3 different sources to see was there in flavour and out of 11 only had to do minor corrections on 2 so thats the only thing really holding back a 5. Flavour is excellent with tea, coffee, port (you get my drift...something not to overpowering as this flavour is somewhat easy to mask) its a solid medium and not much more than that on the strength. Sounds funny but the band is very impressive and you'll find yourself staring at it as you puff. I pull mine off to not distract. Not overly light it has some nice medium bite on the retro and enough good hints to not be boring. Like this one and ordered more today as its in my top 20.

This isn't a bad smoke, but it fell well short of my expectations. I've smoked a lot of cigars, and have never had a stick leave such a bad taste in my mouth (literally). I'd take a do-over on this purchase.

Will be in my rotation moving forward

Spicy smoke.
I've had mixed feelings about this one. It has a good draw, good burn and good flavor. One complaint I can't get past though… it's to peppery. A little is OK but this one is over the top for me.

Quick delivery. Good prices

Hard draw, terrible burn, off putting flavor profile
A cigar at this price point shouldn't have the draw problems or the burn issues the San Cristobal Revelation has. Personally I disliked the flavor from what little smoke I could hack out of the stick. Won't be smoking this cigar again.

Pressed too dense. Would't draw
Pressed too dense. Would't draw easily. Also burned unevenly. Flavor and aromagood, just hard to smoke.
Customer Testimonials
Just tried one off the Purple truck. It's beautiful to look at and after a few puffs, I can tell you it's delicious! I don't really care about cigar bands, but this one had continuously glancing at it.
I was out of town on business and picked up an Odyssey to give it a go and it exceeded expectations. Great cigar; I'm definitely going to get more.
A beautiful cigar with great aroma and taste. It is worth every penny. A big cigar with complexity in flavor. I enjoyed this one to the nub.
I'm currently smoking my second one of these. Absolutely brilliant...
When I say this might be THE best smoke I've ever had. Smooth yet robust. Perfect draw. Heavy smoke. Peppery. I tried 1 fresh off the brown truck & it was delicious! This is a $9-10 cigar most places. So CI is giving us the hook up as usual by saving a few $s on top of a great stick. Should I mention it goes great w/ Honey Jack? Do yourself a favor & try at least the 5pk ASAP
I have tried a few San Cristobals in the past and was not a fan, but the new Revelation is a great cigar! Great draw, smooth burning and flavorful to the end.
Excellent balance and smooth. Perfect draw and very consistent from beginning to end. Highly recommended.
Great cigar, I like all the san cristobal but this is my new favorite. The mystic is awesome. Will be ordering more soon.
This was my first smoke of the new year - right around 12:30-1:00. Had them in my humi for a few weeks after getting Joe's Daily Deal. All I can say is WOW! What a way to enter 2014. A spectacular smoke! I had the Legend and it was just that - Legendary! Such cream and pepper throughout the whole smoke. Really smooth on the lips, and just tremendous, consistent flavor throughout. Medium-full in power - just like I like 'em. And a box-pressed beauty - which I also find myself loving more. I'm a big fan of the original San Cristobal as well, but this is right there with it. I'm going to have to do some more tests to see which one I like better. You gotta give it a try!
Never was a fan of San Cristobal, UNTIL NOW! Tried at a cigar event at Cigar Masters in Providence....liked enough to buy a box.....burned my finger on every one. I personally liked the Mystic size...the smaller the size, the more creamy the smoke. Found the larger sizes did not excite my palette as much. HIGHLY recommended.
