Ashton introduced their first limited cigar produced out of Nicaragua (Garcia family) in 2014 with the LADC Noblesse. With widespread success for the cigar, they spread the love to their San Cristobal line (also produced by the Garcias) for 2015, introducing the Ovation at the IPCPR show in New Orleans.
Handcrafted in Estelí, Nicaragua by legendary cigar-maker, Jose “Pepin” Garcia, San Cristobal Ovation is an opulent cigar, drawn from only the finest and rarest tobaccos grown on Garcia family estates in honor of the brand’s influential reception. A dark and lustrous San Andrés Oscuro wrapper emerges from an intensive two-and-a-half-year double-fermentation to reveal an approachable and captivating richness. Articulate notes of dark cocoa, wood and leather register with bottomless intrigue veiled beneath a creamy potency. Ovation concludes with sweet hickory aromas and substantial, prolonged gratification. Ovation is only available in a small-batch, limited edition of 3,000 boxes and will ship in late fall.Ashton Distributors, Inc.
