San Cristobal Original
The brand is a collaboration between the Levin family, the owners of Ashton, and the Garcias. Ashton is a Dominican powerhouse, and this brand is a collaboration with Don Pepin, one of the world’s best blenders of Nicaraguan tobacco, to enable Ashton to create a new type of offering.
The interior blend of San Cristobal Original cigars is premium Nicaraguan leaf. Around that is a shimmering, dark-brown Cuban-seed Oscuro wrapper from Ecuador. The smoke comes out full-bodied, with notes of espresso bean, dark chocolate, walnut, black cherry, and a foundation of spice. Immediately after launching, it earned a 93-point rating from Cigar Aficionado, and the party officially began. From there, several other delicious blends were made, but this is the one that paved the way for all the rest.
Deliciously flavorful and inarguably original. This is where the fantastic San Cristobal story started.
