San Cristobal is still one of the newest Cuban brands, launched in November of 1999 as a new Millenium tribute to the city’s long history – the city being Havana, which was originally named San Cristóbal de la Habana. Each vitola is named after different forts which defended the city in Spanish Colonial times.
Its range is composed of four vitolas with a light to medium flavour using tobaccos from the Vuelta Abajo region. These superior quality cigars impart a very smooth and buttery flavour.
All are “totalmente a mano, tripa larga”-totally hand made, long filler and two sizes, El Morro and La Fuerza, are not found in any other Habano brand.
