A Preview of Ashton's New San Cristobal

Today Sathya Levin and Manny Ferrero of Ashton Cigars came by the office for a few smokes and some lunch. They were giving me a first taste of their latest, the San Cristobal brand. These are going to hit the market next month, after a preview in two weeks at the RTDA show. I smoked the San Cristobal Supermo first, a 6 by 50 toro with a very dark wrapper. It’s entirely Nicaraguan, made by Pepin Garcia at his factory in Estelí, Nicaragua. It’s quite a dark wrapper for one of Pepin’s smokes, and Manny told me it was a leaf grown in the Estelí region, from the upper primings.

San Cristóbal, Ashton's First Nicaraguan Cigar

Ashton Cigar Distributors is putting the finishing touches on its first-ever Nicaraguan smoke. San Cristóbal is a Nicaraguan puro from Tabacalera Cubana, the Estelí factory where Tatuaje Havana VI cigars are rolled. The factory is owned by José "Pepin" Garcia, who also makes cigars in Miami and is building a reputation as a superior cigarmaker. "We were always impressed with his cigars," said Ashton vice president Sathya Levin. Prices for the six-size line, which will debut in early August at the Retail Tobacco Dealers of America trade show, have not been determined. Levin said the cigars would be full bodied.

New Ashton ESG Size Released

The first shipments of the Ashton Estate Sun Grown size, the 21 Year Salute, hit retail stores in major cities across the country. The 5 1/4 inch by 52 ring robusto is the second cigar in the ESG line to be released; the first, the Churchill-sized 20 Year Salute, came out last summer. The new cigar retails for $17.50, as ESG is the most expensive brand in Ashton's portfolio. Made by the Fuentes, the cigar uses wrapper that comes from the same farm as the wrapper that covers the Fuente Fuente OpusX. The OpusX leaf is shade-grown, while the leaves designated for the ESG are sun-grown. According to Robert Levin, president of Ashton Cigars, only 50,000 21 Year Salutes will be made this year.
