Kristoff Criollo Lancero Cigar Review

This 7.5×40 stick features a dark brown mottled wrapper with a soft, buttery oily feel, minimal veins tight invisible seams, wound pigtail cap, closed shaggy foot and a rich chocolate and tobacco aroma. First light reveals a great draw with plentiful medium-full bodied smoke showing deep naturally sweet oily tobacco flavors with a long finish adding a touch of pepper bite. The first third burns well but fast, dropping the ash in inch chunks with a razor sharp burn. Body is down to mild-medium showing a soft chocolate and leather followed by an oily smooth peppery tobacco. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 35 minutes, flavors are largely unchanged, still mild and smooth but the finish grows longer. Ending at 1:10 with perfect performance, the only shift is the body moving up a touch to a solid medium.Thank you to viewer John Pearson for sending this sample in!

    Kristoff cigars are one of my favorite brands. This is the first Krostoff lancero size I’ve seen though. The latest blend I’ve tried is the ligero.

    I would to hear your review about this Kristoff which by the way I love this cigars, criollo, criollo ligero and Maduro , all in my humidor, back to the problem Bryan the video has no sound,which is a shame since this is what I do every morning have two cup of coffee, fire up my first cigar of the day and enjoy your reviews, I hope I can this review again but with sound, by way the robustos are great.

    • Obviously the video has sound or everyone would have said something. Make sure you have your volume up in the youtube player.

        Thanks for your reply, don’t what was wrong but tried again today and was good… Nice review by way, I wonder if you’ve reviewed the criollo ligero.
