Kristoff and Camacho criollo

Anyone had the Kristoff Criollo or the Camacho Criollo?

Used to love the CAO Criollo Mancha, but they are discontinued now, so I'm looking for a suitable replacement.

Criollo choices only seem to be Camacho and Kristoff

I"ve smoked both and I prefer the Kristoff. I used to really enjoy the Camacho, but when Davidoff bought Camacho they changed the blend and ruined the cigar's flavor profile.

What about the HC Series from CI? Cuban Crafters has Cupido Criollos.

Or buy a pound of Criollo wrapper and make your own from other blends...

I've had a fiver of the HC series and enjoyed them, but looking to try some others to find something closer to the CAO I used to love.

I wish I could try rolling my own, but half of my left hand is numb and paralyzed so not really possible.

Will check out the Cuban Crafters you mentioned. Hadn't seen or heard of them before, so thanks for the tip

Cupido has been a favorite from early on in my smoking years.

HC WAS made by Jesus Fuego when they first came out from Xikar.

Really? They always used to be decently priced.
