Admired by the cigar world for every reason you want when you light up: Taste, aroma, construction and consistency. In 2007, Ashton Cigars teamed up with legendary cigar maker and blend master, Don Pepin Garcia to create this highly acclaimed line of premium Nicaraguan cigars.
The San Cristobal cigar is an all-Nicaraguan leaf blend that includes a dark, oily wrapper and well-aged binder, and long filler tobaccos. Full-bodied yet smooth, San Cristobal delivers a profoundly complex flavor, including hints of chocolate, nuts, espresso, earth and cedar. The cigars are expertly constructed with a Cuban-style triple cap.
Another wonderful blend created by Don Pepin is the San Cristobal Elegancia. This cigar is medium bodied with a silky smooth Connecticut-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador made rolled flawlessly with the finest aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. This wonderful cigar is unique to what you may find with the typical Don Pepin cigar, backing away from the peppery profiles and making way for a creamy smooth blend. Notes of nuts & wood are prominent.
The newest offering in the lineup of San Cristobal cigars is the San Cristobal Revelation. Another masterpiece created at the My Father Cigars Factory in Esteli, Nicaragua, this smoke is garnering much praise and high ratings in the magazine and online publications. The Ecuadorian Sumatra wrappers are the same gorgeous leaves used on the Ashton Virgin Sun Grown line of cigars except they are portray a lighter, milk chocolate tone that creates a blend of perfectly-aged Nicaraguan tobaccos. The medium-full-bodied profile offers a rich, earthy taste with notes of leather, cedar, nuts, and spice.
It's hard to find a San Cristobal cigar review that isn't glowing as Don Pepin Garcia puts the care of a genuine master into every box that is made.
