When the Ashton Cigar Bar opened in Philadelphia last year, the company planned on producing two special cigars for the high-end cigar bar: Ashton Crown and La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse. Neither have made it to the bar, but now one will be released—nationwide. Next month, the La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse (6 1/2 x 52) will be offered to retailers nationwide at this year’s IPCPR convention and trade show as a limited edition.
It uses an Ecuadorian habano rosado wrapper, criollo and habano binders and filler tobacco from the García family’s farms in Estelí, Jalapa and Namanji. The cigar, like the rest of the La Aroma de Cuba line, will be made at the García’s My Father Cigars S.A. factory in Estelí.
The Noblesse is expected to ship in the fall. Pricing has been announced at $16 per cigar, making it the most expensive La Aroma de Cuba to date. The IPCPR convention and trade show begins on July 19 in Las Vegas, Nev.
Update (July 9, 2014)–Added price information and that the wrapper comes from Ecuador.
