What are they doing here?

Listen up, they come bearing gifts! Well, you would have to earn them. During the event, La Casa del Habano is organizing a Slow Smoking Competition from 11th to 12th October 2019.

The cigar that will be used for this competition is the Cuban San Cristobal El Principle (size: 110 x 16.67 mm / 42 x 4.3 inch).

The Cigar Backstory

San Cristobal was the original name given to Cuba’s capital city today known as Havana. When
the city was founded in 1519 the name was given in honour of Christopher Columbus hence San
Cristobal (St Christopher). The brand was launched in 1999 with just a handful of sizes, all of which offering light to medium flavours.

Added in 1999, San Cristobal de la Habana is one of the newest Cuban marcas on that year. The regular production line consists of only four vitolas, each named after one of the forts that guarded Havana in the Spanish colonial days.

As a 110 x 42 minuto, El Principe is the smallest of the line; however, its small size disguises a large flavour bomb that makes for an excellent short smoke.

El Principes have a reputation of a good “fresh” Cuban. Visually, this cigar is an absolute treat. The colorado claro wrapper has just a light oily sheen and feels silky smooth to the touch. The seams are invisible, and there are no major veins that cause concern.

The triple cap is excellently applied. The cigar does not have a strong scent, but there are faint hints of tobacco, earth, and barnyard.


The Prize

Get this, the winner of this Slow Smoking Competition will get a premium prize from the Siglo accessories.
