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 honestly had high hopes for this cigar but was disappointed. For the price I was expecting a lot more. The flavor was nothing spectacular with grassy notes, similar to an average Dominican cigar. The burn can be rather uneven at times. Huge red flag for me is that many of the bands have glue in contact with the wrapper, poor attention to detail. I don't know how this cigar has a 91 rating, I would put it on the exact same level and quality as a "Factory Smokes" from Drew Estate. As you can see there is a huge price difference between those two. For the money there are many cigars that are less expensive with better quality.
