Kristoff Cigars Kristoff Classic Reserva
This cigar had a beautiful looking, evenly colored reddish-brown wrapper that was silky to the touch and solid in the hand. The pre-light nose was bright with cedar and floral notes. There was a slight resistance to the draw like drinking through a straw, making this effortless to enjoy. The initial smoke was dense and creamy with a big spicy note. The spice settled down in the taste but a big white-pepper note was consistent when retro-haled through the nose. The burn was slow and extremely even with outstanding overall construction. The cigar boasted a full luring aroma that had traits similar to the pre-light smell accompanied by woods, nuts and a luscious, well-fermented tobacco note. The cigar started off with a full body, and then just as it started to become overwhelming it settled down becoming more balanced with the flavor allowing more of the nuances to come through. This was a complex, full flavored, full bodied cigar with a great aroma that intensified as the cigar was smoked. A unique cigar with a big and bold personality that was packed with flavor.
