San Cristobal has become a favorite of mine, the La Fuerza it had a nice floral and nutty flavor. The draw was perfect. The construction was very good and it is an attractive cigar. I will be purchasing another box to age.

    Floral and nutty flavour with creamy undertones. A attractive and strong cigar. You go wrong with these.

      I smoked one last night, fantastic! Rich yet mild, some spice, beautiful draw, an excellent cigar. The first half was a dream, second half proved slightly bitter, as expected with difficulty keeping lit. That said, this is my new favorite.

        San Cristobal de La Habana La Fuerza:
        Cuban. (Stored in cabinet humidor 70deg/65RH)

        Start: 11:15 PM Finnish: 12:50 AM

        Food: Proscuitto de Parma layered over fresh mozzarella and tomatoes on a bed of arugula with a splash of balsamic vinegar and cracked pepper (I love this salad and had to have it again tonight). Breaded 1 inch thick baked pork chop with sautéed spinach and an Indonesian rice pilaf. Desert was simple. 2 oz of organic dark chocolate and a 50 year tawny port.

        Drink: S. Pellegrino over ice & Glenmorange 15 year old single malt scotch. Neat with 3 drops of water.

        Location: Garage at my computer with the door ½ inch up.

        Pre light aroma: This cigar was earthy with a healthy wallop of sweet spice.

        Construction: This cigar appeared to be in good condition. It was ever so slightly box pressed. I was a little concerned with a small tear in the leaf near the band. It had the look rich leather and reminded me of a fine desk pad. When pinched it had just the right amount of give and felt properly humidified.

        Pre Light: I made a clean cut with my Xikar cigar cutter and took a pre light draw. The pre draw revealed my second desert. Tastes of nutmeg and sweet earth rush to my palate! I was thinking that if this is the initial pre lit draw that I could hardly wait to toast this beauty! The draw was a tiny bit tight but was certainly acceptable.

        Light: I used a Colibri torch lighter and toasted the foot. The cigar lit splendidly.

        Taste: The initial draw was, well….heavenly. I was surrounded in sweet spice with the taste of Madagascar vanilla permiating the air. I was encircled in an aroma of syrupy ethereal smoke. I took each draw slowly as to savor each and every moment in time. I thought that if this was just the first 1/8 of the cigar I can’t wait to see how the rest unfolds! The tight grayish white ash was held in place with tiny black slits in contrast. While not as beautiful as the ash of the RyJ Ex#4 I had smoked earlier, it was a close second. The 15 year old single malt was a faultless accent to this cigar. It accentuated the hints of vanilla from the cigar. It was clean and had the taste of a refined smoke that is destined to improve with age. I smoked the entire stick without much of a change in the flavor profile. The strength was medium and never really developed into anything stronger. The flavor was maintained through the whole smoke and while I was hoping for something amazing to happen it never did. This was a fairly young stick and with a little age I could see that this could have some great potential. I want to lay these down for probably 3-5 years and revisit them. This was a joy to smoke.

        Synopsis: This cigar is destined to stay in my. This is aproachable now, but I could only imagine what 3-5 years could yield! The argument for smoking right away is that you know what you are getting. You don’t have to concentrate on a complex flavor profile and can just enjoy the stick. This was a great cigar that can only improve with time.

          San Cristobal has become one of My favorite brands from Cuba. This well made cigar has earthy notes with a great draw on a full flavored medium body. I especially like the size on this one. Highly recomended.
