At this year’s trade show, Ashton Distributors, Inc. will expand its Nicaraguan offerings with the new San Cristobal Quintessence.

Like the rest of the La Aroma de Cuba and San Cristobal lines sold by the company it is being produced at My Father Cigars S.A. in Estelí, Nicaragua. The company says it uses an Ecuadorian habano wrapper over binder and filler tobaccos grown by the García family at their Nicaraguan farms.

San Cristobal Quintessence

Four sizes will be released, though the company is not disclosing those sizes or their prices before the 2016 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show, which begins July 25 in Las Vegas.

Quintessence joins the eponymous San Cristobal line, Elegancia, Revelation and the limited Ovation line in the San Cristobal family.
