Hello once again and welcome to this weeks first impressions review of the Kristoff 685 Woodlawn. This cigar is named after Glen Cases’ address growing up. It is also a limited edition and what is out there is all there is from what I have been told, so grab them fast if you want to try them. They are also only available in the perfecto shape (6 1/2 x 60) and have a Brazilian wrapper, Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan and Dominican filler.
With this being a first impressions I will let the video do most of the talking, also I am horrible at writing reviews.
Short version of the cigar is it is very good flavors with not so good construction issues. There was a nice spice with a creamy wood flavor that lead into a citrus taste added to the woody flavor and really only hit a medium strength but the flavors really blossomed as I went through the cigar and that is what held it into a likable cigar for me even with the construction problems.
Would I buy it again? At $14 a stick it would be for a special occasion but I could see snagging it again even with the problems I had with construction. In my opinion the flavors were just amazing and if the construction was in the same category I would not hesitate to beg and borrow to get a box of 10.
