With San Cristobal Quintessence, celebrated cigar maker Jose "Pepin" Garcia embraces his remarkable talents as a world-class blender. Quintessence is patiently rolled in Pepin's immaculate factory in Estel, Nicaragua, from a luscious Ecuador Habano wrapper and the finest, premium aged binder and filler tobaccos grown on the Garcia family estates. Molasses, coffee, and black pepper notes entice the palate with a gentle sweetness. Dried fruit, figs, and sugarcane combine in perfect proportion to the culminating spices. Cool, civil aromas pervade the medium to full-bodied finish. With tasteful indulgence, San Cristobal Quintessence exemplifies Pepin's rise to prominence.
