Ashton’s two limited edition Nicaraguan lines are both getting new sizes at this month’s IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

The company will expand both the La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse and the San Cristobal Ovation lines. Both cigars will get one new size and see their previous sizes return, all in limited form.

Noblesse will add the new Viceroy, a 5 3/4 x 54 belicoso, joining the original Coronation (6 1/2 x 52) and Regency (5 1/2 x 50). It uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper, Nicaraguan criollo and habano binders, and filler tobacco from the García family farms.

The company’s marketing material says there will be 3,000 boxes produced, thought it didn’t indicate whether that was 3,000 per size or in total. Last year, the company released 2,500 boxes each for the Coronation and Regency.

The San Cristobal Ovation, which debuted last year in a 6 1/2 x 52 size, returns with a new size called Decadence, a 5 1/2 x 50 robusto. The company says 2,000 boxes will be produced, but it’s unclear if it will be 2,000 or 4,000 boxes in total between the two sizes.

Ovation uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. Like the rest of the company’s La Aroma de Cuba and San Cristobal lines, the cigars are produced by the García family at My Father Cigars S.A.

A spokesperson declined to clarify production numbers and pricing. Past releases of the lines have been priced between $14-16 per cigar.

The 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show begins July 25 in Las Vegas.
