Hailing from the Dominican Republic, Kristoff is a super premium cigar that competes with the likes of Arturo Fuente, Davidoff, and Graycliff. The company only employs the most qualified Cuban master blenders, all who have generations of experience in cigar making.
Kristoff's most recent release. Compared to Kristoff Maduro, Ligero Maduro offers a stronger, full-bodied experience. The filler blend contains premium Cuban-seed Nicaraguan and Dominican long leaves but comes wrapped with a Cuban-seed Dominican binder and a Brazilian maduro ligero wrapper. This particular leaf creates a bolder, heartier character with balanced sweetness.
The special ligero wrapper on this cigar creates quite a unique flavor when burned together with the blend's Cuban-seed binder and fillers. Unlike Kristoff Maduro, which creates earthy, peaty flavors with a sweet finish, Kristoff Ligero Maduro presents rich nuances of earth, cocoa, and spices with a coffee-like finish. On the finish, you may notice some cherry aromas mixed with cedar. A great-tasting cigar.
One of my all-time favorite sticks. Perfect right off the truck.

Half the cigars were almost unsmokeable. The wrappers split, unraveled and were a mess. Had to relight constantly. Out of an entire box only 2 cigars actually smoked the way they should. Almost called for a refund, something I've never done. I like the taste but will never purchase another Kristoff.
