Ashton Cigars Add Churchill Vitola to San Cristobal Quintessence
[PRESS RELEASE] San Cristobal Quintessence arrives in an all-new 7 x 49 Churchill today! Celebrated cigar-maker Jose “Pepin” Garcia sets impeccable benchmarks for flavor, aroma, and quality in blending San Cristobal Quintessence from the finest reserves of premium aged tobaccos in six classic shapes.
Quintessence is drawn from a glistening Ecuador Habano wrapper over vintage binder and filler tobaccos grown on select Garcia family estates in Nicaragua. The 92-rated blend is meticulously rolled in Pepin’s immaculate factory in Estelí to deliver a distinct profile of molasses, fresh coffee, and figs with signature spices before a medium to full-bodied finish. Hints of leather and wood accompany engaging aroma from beginning to end.
The venerable and popular San Cristobal welcomes the Churchill vitola to it’s Quintessence line up which also includes a belicoso, corona gorda, epicure, majestic [gordo], and a robusto. Along with the previously mentioned 92-rating, the Quintessence line also made Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year in 2018. – In Fumo Pax!
