Quick Smoke: Ashton San Cristobal

Quick Smoke: Ashton San Cristobal

Ashton is one of the elite manufactures of fine cigars because they hand select tobacco from the best growers out there. Whether you prefer the top of the line Dominican that chateau Fuente produces or you tend to crave the epitome of fine Nicaraguan tobacco produced by the legendary Don Pepin, you’re completely covered. The San Cristobal is just one in an amazing lineup of sticks that utilizes Jose “Pepin” Garcia’s remarkable tobacco. With nearly flawless construction, wonderful earthy and cedar notes and a dark oily wrapper, this is a tough cigar to beat. Towards the middle of the stick I also noticed some rich chocolate notes that really added to the cigars overall complexity. The impeccable draw alone has made this one of my new favorite sticks. This one’s a no-brainer, if you like a more medium to full body cigar then you are doing a great disservice to yourself by not having tried one of these yet. San Cristobal is available in 8 sizes and packaged in cedar chests of twenty-one and twenty-two.
