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.
This special blend releases a unique flavor and aroma due to the combination of its premium Sumatra wrapper and Brazilian binder. Both leaves offer some sweet nuances while creating a bold character with light notes of spice and pepper. With Cuban-seed Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers, this is an ideal morning smoke.
Smooth from head to foot, the cigar burns well thanks to its great construction. It leaves a creamy note on your palate as the peppery nuances tickle the back of your throat. With a medium body and medium finish, you'll enjoy how consistent the flavor profile remains from cigar to cigar, inch to inch. It's undeniably well-balanced, and absolutely enjoyable.
Just finished a Churchill, and it was a flavorful and satisfying smoke a fair share of strength. You can taste a thread of the Nicaraguan filler in there, but the Brazilian binder and Dominican filler dominate with what some smoker friends and I call the green smoking leaf taste that you get with Dominicans. Despite overhumidification on account of my humidor being banished to the garage during the rainy season, it only took a little bit of coaxing to keep my Sumatra burning cooperatively and pumping out flavorful smoke.
