I happen to visit one of my favorite cigar stores recently and the Kristoff cigar rep happen to be there and we hit it off discussing different cigars likes and dislikes. He then offered me a few freebies if I bought a couple of his brand…..You had me at hello.

The first Kristoff review of three is:   


Cigar Brand: Kristoff San Andres Gordo

Size: 6×60  (see sizes explained here)

Individual cost: If you pay over $8 for this you are getting hosed. Box price here

What kind of car would I drive if I smoked this cigar? None, you would drive a truck or Harley. Period. Trucks and Harleys are designed for cigar smokers. Trucks are perfect for developing a nice cloud layer of freedom air along the cab roof and frankly, when you see someone driving a truck with a cigar, if you avoid the warning signs, no one can help you. Sometimes when a “female” species gets in my truck, I have heard the phrase “this truck smells like cigars” which I reply with, “you can walk”. Harleys, self-explainable.


What’s it like to smoke it? Don’t let the dark as sin cigar tobacco wrapper scare you, it’s very tasty and burns pretty constant as the big ring emits freedom smoke. Beginners can try this one but don’t be “that guy” who is a beginner cigar smoker and buys this stoag on a hot afternoon and lights it up. You will be sorry. Get some chow in your gut and take it easy slick, ya gotta crawl before you run. If you’re a rock gut cigar smoker (like myself) this baby is tasty first thing out of bed while you fill up your coffee mug. Additionally, this stoag includes a nice smoke fragrance which is proven to make teenage boys lurking around daughters to have the thought go through their head “why do I have the feeling I’m about to die going through my body?” I guess that’s just included in every one of these particular cigars, or maybe it’s something extra….

San Andres

Good occasions to smoke it: This is a good cigar to enjoy during the drive into work, driving home from work, while your boss continues to ramble about bullshit you don’t care about or especially when that particular coworker won’t shut the hell about BS stuff. Has been proven to work well in making teenage “boyfriends” go away…..Light this bad boy up and suddenly, all your troubles disappear. Crazy how that works.

What should I drink with it? I prefer something with a little “mugusto” however, the main stay No. 7 or even black coffee is tasty with it. Who am I kidding, No 7 is perfect with anything.

All in all this is a tasty cigar that even beginners can try. However, most “beginners” are most likely not going to spend $8 on a stoag they are going to take two puffs on, choke, perhaps puke then smash it out on their parents drive way but who knows, perhaps you spoiled Berkley kids in CA are out one night and get a wild hair up your ass and buy one of these. Send me pics of the ant hill you puke on.


I would rate this cigar: (4 out of 5 )
