Ashton’s got a new cigar and boy is it a good one! Two weeks ago at the IPCPR show in Las Vegas, Ashton unveiled the San Cristobal Revelation. The Revelation is the fourth cigar to be added to the San Cristobal line and it will be available this September. The cigar was one that really stood out at the show and has got a lot of cigar fans excited!
Created in 2007, the San Cristobal brand is known for carrying exquisite cigars and the Revelation fits right in. Made for Ashton by the Garcia family at My Father Cigars in Esteli, Nicaragua, the Revelation is a beautiful cigar with a colorful, unique band and is packaged in a traditional cigar box adorned with colorful artwork as well.
The Revelation features a chocolaty brown Ecuadoran Sumatra wrapper which is the same wrapper leaf used in Ashton’s Virgin Sun Grown blend. The binder and filler leaf of the new San Cristobal blend consist of Nicaraguan tobaccos.
Revelation will be available in five sizes including Mystic (5 5/8 x 48), Prophet (5 x 54) and Legend (6 ¼ x 52). The Odyssey (5 ¾) and the Leviathan (6 ½ ) are the larger cigars of the line that will have gauges of either 60 and 64.
The suggested retail price will vary and ranges from $6.95 to $9.50, each size comes in boxes of 24.
