San Cristobal Revelation Mystic Cigar Review

This 5.6×48 box pressed stick features a dark brown mottled wrapper with small veins, tight invisible seams, glove soft smooth feel, triple cap and rich damp musty earth aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with good medium-bodied smoke output showing a very smooth deep dark smoky earth and a long oily finish of the same. The first third Changes quickly dropping the deeper smoky flavor, shifting to a very smooth fruity sweet earth and bit of a dry cocoa on the draw, while the finish has an aged tobacco smoothness. Hitting the 1/2 way point at 30 minutes with no flavor changes. It smokes perfectly, the ash holds in a solid chunk and the bands come off clean. Ending at 55 minutes the last third drops the sweetness, taking the earth to a smooth deeper flavor lasting all the way through the long substantial finish. Thank you to viewer Eric Roth for sending this in for review!

    I’ve been waiting for you to review this one for a long time. I smoked one at Holt’s the day they were released and immediately bought a box. I notice these are extremely oily and the Sumatra wrapper creates a mouth-watering effect which tasted almost like ice cold milk. Did anyone catch this?

    Also, this is another Don Pepin blend, so there should be no surprises that it’s excellent. I never smoked a cigar of his I didn’t love.

    Is it a bit sad that the band on this cigar has kept me from it? Perhaps the bright theme did it. Who knows, but we all know how judging a book by its cover works out.
