Stronger La Aroma Makes Market Debut - Mi Amor Reserva

La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Reserva, a stronger, darker version of the La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor brand, has reached retailer shelves. The smokes are rolled for Ashton Distributors Inc. of Philadelphia by My Father Cigars, the Nicaraguan company run by the Garcia family.

Robert Levin inducted into Cigar Aficionado's Hall of Fame Class of 2012

Robert Levin’s first whiff of the cigar business came at the tender age of 11 when he was tasked to sweep the floors of Holt’s Cigar Store, his father’s tobacco shop in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. It was not until 1972, though, that Levin entered the cigar business full time. Back then, Holt’s was a profitable, but small, cigar merchant. Levin saw potential for growth. He seized an opportunity to purchase Harry A. Tint & Sons, another Philadelphia cigar store, in 1980, and soon created the Ashton cigar brand.

First New La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor added to line

La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor, the No. 2 cigar in the world as ranked by Cigar Aficionado magazine, has added its first new size since the launch of the brand in 2010. The size is called Duque, a parejo measuring 5 1/4 inches by 56 ring gauge. It has a suggested retail price of $7.25 per cigar.

The 25 Best Cigars of the Year 2011 - #2 - La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor Belicoso

Ashton Distributors Inc. has broken new ground with the creation of La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor. The cigar brand is the first from Philadelphia’s Ashton to be made with a Mexican wrapper.

La Aroma de Cuba Adds Two New Sizes

The La Aroma de Cuba brand has added two more vitolas to its portfolio—a corona and a double corona—bringing the brand to eight sizes total. Owned by Philadelphia-based Ashton Distributors Inc., La Aroma de Cuba is made in Nicaragua at My Father Cigars S.A.

Ashton VSG Pegasus makes debut

The Pegasus measures five-inches long by 54 ring gauge, and like all VSGs it comes wrapped in Ecuador Sumatra wrapper. What makes it unusual is the lack of box pressing—this is one of only three sizes of VSGs shipped round, rather than pressed. (The other two are the Wizard and the Eclipse.)

Ashton's La Aroma de Cuba rated 93

Ashton Distributors has a new Aroma de Cuba. The new smoke not only has a wrapper that Ashton has never used before, but one of the cigars in the line scored 93 points this week in a blind tasting in Cigar Insider, Cigar Aficionado's twice-monthly cigar newsletter.
