Amusing name, great big flavor.
Taking a suggestion from a customer, Kristoff rolls out Pistoff Kristoff - a bold cigar with tons of flavor. Immediately, you know that this is different than other Kristoffs because of the thin pigtail instead of the usual "man-bun" that most of their cigars have. The wrapper is a dark San Andres capa that promised a full, rich, body. An Indonesian binder lies underneath, and at the core is a collection of robust Nicaraguan long-fillers. There's a super-rich profile including bittersweet chocolate, espresso, leather and baking spices that flood your palate without ever overwhelming. The name sounds angry, but the experience is anything but.
