Kristoff Corojo Limitada lancero (7.5" X 40)

This is, I believe, the first Kristoff cigar I've ever smoked. All the Kristoffs I've seen on auction sites and at B&Ms have been way too fat for my liking, so I was surprised to find these lanceros at a B&M recently.

Nice looking, deep brown wrapper with a nice sheen. Pigtail cap and shaggy foot (I think those look cool). Wrapper has a very distinct floral aroma. Heavy in the hand and a good draw.

First few draws are earthy, with that floral aroma coming through on the finish. About half an inch in, it starts settling into a fairly typical medium to full-bodied corojo wrap cigar. Spicy, a bit of bite in the nostrils.

A few inches in, the floral flavor makes a return. Large smoke volume. Nice smoke so far. Slow and even burn with only one correction a few minutes after lighting.

I enjoyed this cigar quite a bit, but it wasn't a mind blower. For the price (about $8/stick by the box) there are other cigars that I like more.
