Cigar Reveal #202
The Kristoff Vengeance, a resurrection of the original Vengeance line, now bears the Kristoff name and a Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper—a first for Kristoff Cigars. In terms of flavor, the Kristoff Vengeance Toro delivers a smooth black coffee profile, accompanied by cedar and black pepper notes. During the initial stages, the coffee evolves into a sweet mocha quality, blending coffee and chocolate flavors. Hints of cedar and pepper appear on the retrohale. As the cigar progresses, the mocha sweetness transitions into a raw honey-like note, with the coffee growing richer. The pepper intensifies slightly, while cedar remains in the background. The coffee maintains its prominence but loses some of its initial smoothness. In the final third, pepper becomes a strong secondary note, with coffee still at the forefront. The cigar concludes with lingering raw honey and cedar notes.
Overall, this Connecticut Broadleaf offering from Kristoff stands out with its unique flavor profile, making it a great choice for experienced cigar enthusiasts seeking something medium-plus. Even novices looking to explore richer flavors would find this cigar a worthwhile option. It's a cigar worth revisiting and may even warrant consideration for box purchase.
