Behind The Stick:
Surprisingly enough, the Kristoff brand has been around for a very short time ( 2005 ) and yet have been putting a pretty wide variety of cigars into the market. I first heard of the line from the Kristania name, a cigar I was not overly impressed with but ‘for the price’ fit the bill – and Kristoff even remarks they are the ‘budget conscious’ smokes of their brand, aside from the ‘its a boy/girl’ cigars they also offer. The main thing that caught me with the Kristoff brand was the packaging – although a bit on the plain side when looking at the box, squished up and surrounding the cigars are layers of actual tobacco leaf. I love the simplicity of the design with a certain ‘pop’ that will forever imbed this style into my mind – but, enough jabbering about a cool box, how the hell do the Kristoff Criollo’s smoke?!
