The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2008

San Cristobal de La Habana La Fuerza

19

San Cristobal de La Habana remains an off-the-radar brand that is sold mostly to devoted followers who buy their cigars in La Casa del Habano cigar stores. San Cristobal was first introduced in 1999 in hopes of attracting smokers who found mainstream Cuban smokes too strong. The cigars have always impressed us with their lovely aromatic qualities of dried flowers and delicate tobacco. The La Fuerza is essentially a slightly elongated robusto, called gordito, or fatty, in the factory. The cigar delivers plenty of rich earth and coffee flavors that evolve to leather and mahogany undertones. The cigar is certainly rightly named at the moment. “Fuerza” means strength in Spanish, and this year’s batch of San Cristobal La Fuerza seems the richest yet.
