I have smoked many top-quality handmade Cuban cigars in my day, and the Kristoff Original Criollo rivals the best of them. This is a somewhat rustic-looking cigar with a shaggy foot and twisted cap. A beautiful, silky-smooth Honduran wrapper surrounds a Dominican binder and aged filler tobaccos from Nicaragua and the Dominican Republic. The prelight aroma has notes of hay and cedar. The burn was sharp and even, the draw was easy, and the firm ash held on for so long that I could have easily won a contest! Plentiful notes of coffee, almonds, spice, and a buttery-smooth finish always keep me coming back for more of these luxurious smokes.
