San Cristobal are boutique handcrafted cigars made by the Garcia family in Nicaragua and also made in part with Ashton. They were based off their Cuban counterpart San Cristobal de la Habana which were launched in Havana on November 20, 1999. The name is derived from the original name of Havana which which dates back to the 16th century. There was however a brand of San Cristobol before the revolution but, this one has nothing to do with the newer brands. The Nicaraguan blend is comprised of aged Nicaraguan tobaccos that are full-bodied, traditional Cuban triple-cap, and are available in 8 sizes currently. They are also packed in cedar chests of 21 and 22.
