San Cristobal de la Habana

I was gifted some of these gems and here's a little mini review for you guys.
The Muralla vitola is a 7x54 torpedo, here's my breakdown

the prelight aroma was very heavy in floral and cedar notes. the habano wrapper smelled absolutely delicious. the prelight draw was perfect, especially for a stick this long (double toro).

the initial light brought all the wonderful smells that a great habano has but with a floral note that was phenomenal, much like an ISOM Trinidad. the flavor was there immediately and the body was med-full to full right off the bat. the first third was very similar to a 5 Vegas Classic, Padilla Habano, or Sol Cubano Cuban Cabinet. these sticks are not identical and have much less body but there are a lot of similarities on the palate.

the second third really kicked in with more body and at one point I even got dizzy for a moment. This is very similar in flavor to the DPG blended San Cristobal.

on the final third I started to pick up notes that were very similar to a Tatuaje Red Verocu Tubo. Basically, this is a great stick that embodies a lot of the same great experiences that other great sticks that I love have.

This is a stick that lives up to the hype of country of origin. yes there are sticks from that country that don't measure up but this one is tops in my book. I can say it's in my top 5 easily. That's a prestigious place to be since the Anejo also resides up there.
I know that I reference a lot of cigars here that you guys may or may not group together but in my world of tastebuds, they are very similar.

    it truly was. i sat there thinking of what to retaliate with and i don't have anything that is really up to that caliber. it's like walking in for your turn on a porn set after Ron Jeremy and John Holmes just finished.

    Man Alex, if you're packing more "quantity" than John Holmes and Ron Jeremy, I'm truly sorry for your wife.
