San Cristobal Seleccion Del Sol
The cigar begins by showing lots of cinnamon, wood, spicy and coffee notes, and has a very dry finish. The cigar is medium-full in body and very complex. Throughout first third the flavors came and went and occasionally there were bitter moments and a rough dry finish. As the cigar continues into the second third I begin to pick up more coffee notes touched with cinnamon covered almonds. Similar to the first third there was an occasional emergence of bitter and rough dry patches that at this point were becoming unpleasant. The final third of the cigar was very similar to the first third in flavor and at this point the bitterness and rough dry patches were gone.
I was disappointed with this cigar and the stories I heard before about it were finally true. I would give this cigar an 86 and was not happy with it. I thought that the flavors from time to time were nice but at the same time wasn't worth the negative aspects it had. Overall, pick up a different Ashton Cigar, even the San Cristobal, or any other Don Pepin made smoke.
Available at all retailers I recommend.
