Tasting Note

Eight years ago, a man in Chicago decided to walk away from a career in finance and enter the cigar business. Shortly after, the Kristoff brand was born. The man was Glen Case, and in order to stand out in the competitive cigar market, he packaged his smokes in eye-catching rustic boxes filled with shredded tobacco. Rolled at the Charles Fairmorn factory in the Dominican Republic (a facility that focuses primarily on the European market), Kristoff quickly gained a small following. As the cigar gained popularity Case was able to branch out and create more blends, one of which was the Kristoff Corojo Limitada, which came out in 2011. The Torpedo certainly got our attention with a high score last year. About 85 percent of the cigar is made with Cuban-seed Nicaraguan tobacco. The rest is balanced by leaves of Cuban seed Dominican Habano, and while the smoke is piquant and spicy, it is also balanced. The tobacco's scarcity allows Case to make only 16,000 of these torpedos a year.
