Eight years after Ashton first struck a partnership with the now-legendary García family—producing cigars under the San Cristobal name—the company decided to unleash the full potential of the brand, introducing the limited edition San Cristobal Ovation.
San Cristobal Ovation sports an all-Nicaraguan interior, with both fillers and binder leaves being harvested from the Garcías own farms throughout Nicaragua. This impressive combination is then topped with a San Andrés Oscuro leaf that has undergone a special, two-and-a-half-year double fermentation process. This gives the maduro-shade cigars an intriguing profile that is dark, rich, and smooth, all at the same time!
The cigars are medium to medium-plus in body, showing deep flavors of oak, hickory, savory BBQ, mineral, and dark chocolate.
