Introduction From the Inspector
When we received the email from Ago with his cigar review, we were pleased to have a “beginner smoker” contacting us. Ago informed us he just started smoking cigar few months ago but had the desire to share his cigar experiences.
It is always great to see new people joining our community and we do not need to be expert to have an opinion on our favourite smokes.

Just like with the few torpedo shapes I have enjoyed, the draw is a bit tighter than a classic shape.
The San Cristobal La Punta draws well with a nice residence all the way until the end. Not too easy not too hard. I enjoyed the smoke coming out without having to pull hard.

As soon as I lit the cigar I really felt lots of flavours. The cigar burn and developed really well all the way nothing there was to mention.
I could leave the cigar on the ashtray for few minutes and did not have to light it again.

The San Cristobal La Punta, develops a great structure on the palate. It is very rich and creamy with a light peppery note. A creamy musk develops half way through the smoke.
Finishing with some woody and Mildly leather notes.

I was very surprised when appreciating the aroma developed by the cigar. Ginger bread type of notes and great burns leather hints.

I really enjoyed this cigar. As a beginner smoker it is not a brand I would have gone for but the shop recommended it to me. Definitely worth a try. It took me 60-80 to smoke it.
The strength was not too strong but the cigar was well present on the palate. I would say medium to full.
