IPCPR 2016: Kristoff Cigars


Although Kristoff Cigars’ booth was the same this year, it seemed a bit more open to me for some reason, most likely due to the location it had on the floor, where one end was not next to another booth.

In terms of product, while owner Glen Case was showing off the Kristoff Connecticut and the Kristoff Habano—both of which shipped to retailers in June—the company’s newest cigar named Pistoff Kristoff was front and center.

Case assured me that this release had nothing to do with the FDA, but was instead an idea from a fan of his cigars that he ran with, albeit with a different spelling. The blend is a combination of a Mexican San Andrés wrapper covering an Indonesian binder and Nicaraguan fillers, and is shipping to retailers now. There are four different vitolas being rolled at the Charles Fairmorn factory in the Dominican Republic packaged in boxes of 10.

  • Wrapper: Mexican San Andrés
  • Binder: Indonesia
  • Filler: Nicaragua
  • Pistoff Kristoff 660 (6 x 60) — $9.60 (Boxes of 10, $96)

About the author

I have been smoking cigars for over eight years. A documentary wedding photographer by trade, I spent seven years as a photojournalist for the Dallas Morning News and the Fort Worth Star Telegram. I started the cigar blog SmokingStogie in 2008 after realizing that there was a need for a cigar blog with better photographs and more in-depth information about each release. SmokingStogie quickly became one of the more influential cigar blogs on the internet, known for reviewing preproduction, prerelease, rare, extremely hard-to-find and expensive cigars. I am a co-founder of halfwheel and now serve as an editor for halfwheel.
