|Kristoff Galerones Sentido|
Last month, we talked with Kristoff Cigars President Glen Case about his new line of cigars called “Galerones”. One of the cigars he mentioned in the line was going to use a Brazilian Cubra wrapper. That cigar turned out to be the Kristoff Galerones Sentido. This cigar, along with the entire Galerones line was showcased by Kristoff Cigars at the 2013 IPCPR Trade Show.
The Galerones line marks a major change in a lot of ways for Kristoff. The Galerones will feature a very different look from the existing Kristoff line in terms of its packaging (gloss painted boxes as opposed to “rough cut boxes)’. The Galerones series will be made in the PDR Cigars factory – the first time Kristoff has worked with this factory.

The name Sentido is Spanish for senses. According to Kristoff, “this cigar tastes as good as it looks, smells, and feels, which is why it’s called Sentido”.
The Sentido is described as a medium-bodied cigar with flavors of spice, white pepper, sweet toffee, and a long cedar finish.
At a glance, let’s take a look at the Kristoff Sentido:
