Bdawg says:  San Cristobal has become one of my favorites.  It is part of the Ashton Cigars family.  This one had a medium brown thick sun grown wrapper.  The draw was nice producing a tight,  long,  ultra-white ash.  The flavor was slightly peppery, with a a little tang.  Burn was even but a little quick paced.  I would have scored this cigar 1/2 heart higher if burn had been slower. 

I enjoyed this cigar on a beautiful sunny day, poolside,
with an ice-cold gin and tonic!
