San Cristobal Revelation
That’s the only part of the story. The brand is a collaboration between the Levin family, owners of Ashton Cigars, and the Garcias. It was created in the mid-2000s to help Ashton branch out from making mainly superb Dominican smokes to adding superb Nicaraguan smokes to their global portfolio. But this wasn’t a simple business expansion. When you team up with the Garcias, you’re holding yourself to high standards and accepting nothing less than excellence.
And, of course, that’s just what we’ve got here. The teams search for inspiration, and when finally, revelation comes in the form of the perfect blend to fit the concept, they, at last, know that their work is done.
An interior blend of high-quality Nicaraguan tobacco was used for the San Cristobal Revelation cigar. This is in keeping with other stogies under this brand and is a Garcia specialty. It’s one of the many keys to how they always bring in a bit of Cubanesque flavor while blending for the modern palate. This long filler is then held together with a chocolatey Sumatra wrapper grown in Ecuador. When you look at it, you’ll see why this is one of those cigars you can’t resist.
The complex flavor profile of this blend is quite enjoyable after you get it lit and going along. Waves of cedar, cocoa, cinnamon, black pepper, and almond are all present as you take relaxed draws, wondering how they always produce such a fine smoke.
It’s no wonder why Cigar Aficionado put this one on the best-of list for 2014 and why it still scores in the 90s years later. That premium Nica blend, along with the complex Sumatra wrapper, produces a mighty fine smoking experience – just what we’d expect from Ashton and the Garcias.
