San Cristobal cigars are typically known as robust Nicaraguan puros, so their Elegancia series is quite a departure from their previous blends. Don “Pepin” Garcia equipped the San Cristobal Elegancia with a blend of mellow, floral Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos and topped it off with a flawless Ecuadorian Connecticut-seed wrapper leaf. The resulting experience is on the lighter side of medium-bodied with notes of cream, oak, and toast, and while it’s by no means a powerful smoke, you can expect a little more pepper than you’d get from your typical lighter-wrapped cigar. Light up the San Cristobal Elegancia and experience the mellow side of Pepin magic.
I had a sampler of these, there were 3 types in the sampler, these are the more mild ones but are okay for me as I take deep drags. These burn even without having to relight, they taste good so I purchased a box. For me, a cigar has to taste good and burn even, these are mild but if that doesn't bother you then go for it. I smoke 2 to 3 cigars everyday and try to stay away from ones that don't burn or taste good.

I "accidentally" ordered the Grandioso and was glad I did. Super easy draw, nice even burn, smooth all the way to the nub.
