San Cristobal de la Habana
Before the Revolution, a cuban cigar brand by the name of San Cristobal de la Habana cuban cigars existed, and it was produced until the Revolution. However, this new cuban cigar brand is completely unrelated and not a resurrection of the old cuban cigar brand.
Petit Piramides goes by the name of 'Prado', it's an LCDH release and latest addition to the portfolio of the San Cristobal De La Habana brand. Presented in varnished clasp boxes of 10, these little marvels are in tune with the times and already very popular.
The San Cristobal El Principe is a medium bodied and flavorful Petit Corona, 4.3” (110mm) long, of 42 ring gauge, and comes in a 25 cigars box.
The San Cristobal La Fuerza is a smooth and complex medium bodied Robusto Extra, 4.3” (141mm) long, of 50 ring gauge, and comes in a 25 cigars box. Its unusual shape, longer than a Robusto, with a thick ring gauge, makes it longer to smoke, and lets you enjoy its medium body for a longer time. It is a creamy smoke with great toasty and black coffee aromas, along with some sweet molasses. Ageing this cigar permits the La Fuerza to reveal its full potential, very creamy and very complex cigar. Simply, the best vitola from the San Cristobal brand.
he San Cristobal La Punta is a creamy and rich medium bodied Pyramid, 5.5” (140mm) long, of 52 ring gauge, and comes in a 25 cigars box. Launched by Habanos in 1999, it is hand rolled using only tobacco from the Vuelta Abajo region. It gets its name from one of the fortress of La Habana that used to defend the city during the Spanish Latin America Empire times. Despite its lack of fame, it is definitely a cigar that worth a try. Like other vitolas from the San Cristobal marca, La Punta cigar is pretty smooth, medium range in strength, overall very creamy and which develops a nice complexity of flavors along the whole smoke. There is plenty of leather, wood, barnyard, hay, nuts, toasty aromas, fruits notes, some chocolate, and some coffee.
The Torreon from San Cristobal de la Habana is a massive Robusto Extra (54 ring gauge, 5.9” (150mm) long) that comes in a unique jar of 25 cigars.
