Ashton La Aroma de Cuba

Characteristics The Connecticut broadleaf wrapper and Nicaraguan filler and binder give this cigar a chocolatey-buttery complexity, with a long finish that is perfect for a small-batch bourbon like Blanton’s or Knob Creek. Insider's Tip Although the Honduran version of this brand has been around for a few years, it is now being made by Pepin Garcia in Nicaragua, as evidenced by the “New Blend” sticker on the boxes. In addition, there is now a red ribbon on the foot of each of the Nicaraguan cigars. Five sizes are offered, all in large-ring gauges, Fittingly, our favorite is the 6 x 52 Monarch, which provides the fullest flavor. Note Prices are per cigar and average suggested retail and do not reflect local or state taxes.
