I visited Ashton cigar booth on the third day and it was busy. It’s a wide size booth with walls on each side. There was no new cigars presented at the show this year but they added a Corona Gorda size to the popular San Cristobal Quintessence. See what Jose Ortega, Representative for Ashton Cigars – East Florida, had to say about the new size.
San Cristobal Quintessence
The Quintessence debuted last year at IPCPR and now it will receive a fifth size, Corona Gorda. The wrapper is Ecuadorian Habano and binder & filler is Nicaraguan. The cigar is made at My Father Cigars S.A. in Esteli, Nicaragua.
La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse
There’s no new size for La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse. It’s still a great cigar made at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory. The wrapper is Ecuadorian habano with Nicaraguan binder and fillers.
Jose Ortega, talks about the Ashton Symmetry which was introduced in 2015. It comes in five different sizes. It has Dominican and Nicaraguan filler, Dominican binder, and an Ecuadorean Rosado wrapper. The wrapper and fillers are from Arturo Fuente’s farms in the Dominican Republic and Nicaragua.
