San Cristobal De La Habana La Fuerza

The Cuban brand San Cristobal De La Habana is one that i think is often overlooked. The La Fuerza is a 5.6 inch by 50 ring gauge cigar. SCDLH has been a brand i have always loved that rarely disappoints.

Visually this is a great looking cigar, very nice wrapper with a perfectly applied triple cap. The predraw has a slightly cocoa flavor.

This cigar is great right from the start. There is a lot of bitter chocolate and a creamyness to the flavor. There is a slight spiceyness to this cigar, but it is on the subtle side. At the halfway point i am tasting something i can't quite pin down but sort of reminds me of brown sugar. Molasses maybe? There is also a slight black tea flavor the further i get into this cigar. Cuban cigars tend to me harder to review due to their complexity. I would put this as a solid medium bodied cigar with very smooth, complex flavors. I recommend this cigar to any Cuban cigar fan looking for something off the beaten path.

If things work out, look for another review later on this week.
