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.
Smooth and creamy with a hint of pepper, great for an everyday smoke.

Beautiful Connecticut wrapper is very deceiving. This cigar packs complex flavors with thick smoke. It is much more fuller bodied than your usual Connecticut wrapper cigar.
