San Cristobal Elegancia Imperial

Pepin Garcia’s influence is seemingly everywhere these days and is found in another fine creation for Ashton. The San Cristobal Elegancia is truly an “elegant” cigar with a beautiful double band and gorgeous Connecticut-seed wrapper. The 6” x 52 Imperial is expertly constructed with a wonderful draw. Flavors of cashews, cream and wood leap out of the first few puffs. These flavors happily maintain throughout the even burn while coffee bean, spice and faint flourishes of sugar cane tease the taste buds. The smoke is surprisingly thick, yet with a pleasant aroma. No single aspect of this cigar may be considered perfect, but the sum of the parts just seems to work. The Elegancia is a cigar that strikes the perfect balance between smooth creaminess and rich flavor. A medium-bodied cigar that will satisfy at all hours of the day in any situation, the San Cristobal Elegancia may not make everyone’s favorite list, but it is definitely one to try.
