Right off the bat, you could say that the Seleccion del Sol Toro is a truly beautiful cigar in terms of its presentation.  It has a medium-brown wrapper that appears to be very smooth.  It has a few small veins and an oily sheen.  To the touch, the Toro feels very firm.  There are two decorative bands.  The large band near the head displays the San Cristobal name over a logo that features a colorful parrot.  The smaller band near the foot displays the Seleccion del Sol name.  Both bands are very colorful and exude a tropical aura.  Just prior to lighting, the Jaguar has a chocolaty cold taste and a scent of cedar.

The burn of the Seleccion del Sol does not disappoint.  It does need a few touch-ups here and there, but that’s about it as far as any possible complaints.  Its draw is very good, and it produces very long ash that is white in color.

San Cristobaldid a decent job with the Seleccion del Sol in the flavor department.  The cigar begins with a rich chocolate flavor, which later transitions to sweetness and cedar.  Some distinct spice then comes through, and it is finished off with pleasant hints of wood and coffee. 

Overall, I’d have to call the San Cristobal Seleccion del Sol a solid cigar.  I was impressed with its presentation, and it also offered up good construction and flavor.  A single costs $8, and it also comes in packs of five and boxes of 20.  Pick up a five-pack if you want something that’s rather smooth and flavorful.  Since the Seleccion del Sol is anything but overbearing, it's easily a cigar that can be enjoyed by smokers of all levels.  Its overall smooth nature also makes it a viable smoke for any time of the day.  Have it with coffee in the morning, or have it after a nice dinner when you feel like unwinding.

The San Cristobal Seleccion del Sol earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.
