Created in 2007, the San Cristobal brand is starting to make waves throughout the cigar industry. While San Cristobal is known as a full-bodied brand, the Revelation Legend in your shipment today shows a slightly lighter side of the brand. This Nicaraguan handmade is created by the legendary José “Don Pepin” Garcia, who is one of the best in the industry, known for channeling old-world Cuba into modern day blends. The Revelation starts with a vintage core of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, followed by a Nicaraguan binder, and is finished with a milk-chocolate-hued Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. Medium in body, once lit you’ll find notes of smoked almonds, cedar, cinnamon, cocoa, and hints of black pepper. Pair this Cigar Aficionado 92-rated smoke with a Jamaican Rum, such as Appleton Estate 12 Year Jamaican Rum.

The Nicaraguan cigar industry originated when Cuban cigar makers escaped the revolution and re-established their livelihood in Nicaragua with Cuban-seed tobacco. Blessed with dark, rich soil, their new home was ideal for tobacco cultivation and Nicaragua quickly became known for cigars that rivaled Cuban quality. Unfortunately, revolution and war came to Nicaragua in the 1980s and devastated the industry, but it’s rebounded dramatically and is once again producing tobacco considered by many to be the finest in the world.

The Esteli Valley is in many ways the heart of Nicaraguan production and is known for its very powerful and spicy tobacco. The Jalapa Valley produces arguably the finest tobacco in the country: somewhat sweeter and less intense than Esteli, but extremely complex. The tobacco of the Condega Valley is often described as a blend of the other two regions.
