Ashton is planning on releasing a box-pressed version of its original San Cristobal blend next month. Chip Goldeen, vp of sales for Ashton, confirmed to halfwheel that the company intends to have the cigar out in “early June.” It’s available in a single Presto size, which is a slightly larger take on the toro size—believed to be around 6 1/2 x 52.

San Cristobal is made by the Garcías at My Father Cigars S.A. It’s a Nicaraguan puro offered in 10 regular production round sizes.
