Kinky Friedman Kinkycristo Cigar Review

This 6.25×54 belicoso features a very thin dry dark chocolate wrapper with small veins, tight seams, a crinkly firm pack and mild damp musty chocolate aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plentiful medium-full body smoke giving flavors of a creamy textured, oily and smooth chocolate and earth with a long finish adding a touch of pepper and spice. The first third burns a bit unevenly and body goes down to mild-medium transitioning to a creamy leather. Coming at 40 minutes in, the 1/2 way point shows minor changes, evening out the burn and bringing back a bit of the deeper pepper flavors especially through the finish. Ending at the nub at 55 minutes, the last third showed no further changes and the wonky burn was self correcting. Thank you very much to viewer James Bellante for sending this sample in for review!

    I’ve enjoyed the Texas Jewboy– may have to give this one a shot, as well! (That just didn’t sound right at all…!)

  • Richhart

    I’ve enjoyed this cigar and a number of Kinky’s other ones. Even better was meeting and talking to him.
    Don’t waste your time with the San Lotano line.
    I’ve now had 3 different ones, all purchased at different places ( CI and 2 B&M shops) and all were poor. Bad construction… Canoeing , wrapper problems …and all harsh. Not worth any price not the time. Way too many better cigars available. Typical of most of AJ’s line.

      I agree with this sentiment.

    Hey bryan! I have been smoking cigars for a few months now and would just like to say thank you for your no bullshit reviews. Your one of the few people that gives reviews that does not sound like a damn salesman.

    In past videos you talked about the spotty consistency that B&Ms can have with the storing of their cigars. Can you take a cigar bought at a B&M and return it to pristine smoking condition by putting it in your own humidor?

    If so how long should I let the store bought cigars acclimate to proper humidity?

    • Thanks! I would say absolutely yes, with a good couple weeks. If I bought a bunch from a B&M I would simply treat them as being shipped to me from an online store and let them site.

        Awesome thank your for the tips!

  • cigarkid

    Sorry one more quick question. Do certain cigars age better than others? Like would a maduro age better than say a connecticut? And is there a limit to how much you can age a cigar?

    • There is no way to tell at all before doing so, what will happen to any given blend over time.

    I was pleased to see this up for review. One of my favorites. Theres just something very pleasant and enticing about the Kinkycristo. Picked up a box of Utopias (the toro size) same blend supposedly but I much prefered this belicoso. No mention of the natural sweet tobacco flavor I pick up. Sometimes a little hint of coffee. Very nice and will remain in my rotation as long as theyre available. I heard these are made by Oliveros.

  • JJO

    The Big Richard was an enjoyable smoke, so I’ll have to try some of the other lines.

    Unlike Richhart, I have not had any problems with the San Lotanos I have smoked (Maduro, Habano, Oval). All were very good, no construction problems, and from a variety of vendors, as well as gifts.
