Quick Smoke: San Cristobal Revelation Mystic

7 Jun 2015

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”

San Cristobal Revelation

The third variation of the San Cristobal brand, Revelation features an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper around Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos. The Mystic is a corona size (5.6 x 48), and it’s an excellent representation of the blend. The Sumatran wrapper imparts a distinctive sweetness that is especially apparent in the pre-light draw. Once lit, the cigar sports a medium- to full-bodied profile with rich, powdery flavors with cedar spice, cinnamon, earth, and dried fruit. The construction is flawless despite the cigar seeming a little under-filled. I like the original San Cristobal better, but there’s nothing about the Revelation that I wouldn’t recommend.

Verdict = Buy.

    I’ve not had the San Cristobal in the corona size. My local B&M has both the toro and the churchill. I like the toro but the churchill has a way of turning harsh sooner than it should.
