Ashton Distributors Inc. has owned its own cigar brands for more than 25 years, but the company has broken new ground with the creation of La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor.
The cigar brand is the first since Philadelphia's Ashton to be made with a Mexican wrapper. This Mexican leaf has been used for decades in the cigar industry, but Ashton has always opted to use Connecticut broadleaf on its dark cigars.
Most Mexican maduros are made with a leaf known as San Andrés Negro, while the La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amors have wrappers grown from Cuban seeds. The lush and fertile San Andrés Valley outside of Veracruz turns these leaves dark and oily, packing them with flavor.
La Aroma de Cuba Mi Amor is rolled for Ashton in Nicaragua at My Father Cigars, the massive factory run by the talented Garcia family. Originally from Cuba, José "Pepin" Garcia and his family now make millions of cigars at the My Father factory. They combine Nicaraguan tobacco that is grown in their factory using two binder leaves, as is their custom—with this dark, Mexican wrapper, and the combination is sublime.
This cigar is box-pressed, it burns consistently and has a lovely woody component balanced by notes of sweet nougat and notes of nuts on the palate.
