Today Ashton announced an addition to its popular “La Aroma de Cuba” line.  This one is called the “Marquis”.

Actually this stick has been around for a few years, but was discontinued.  In March of last year, Ashton Cigars brought back the Marquis.  However, it was only available as a promotional cigar at events.   The cigar proved to be popular, therefore Ashton has decided to add the cigar as a regular part of the La Aroma de Cuba brand.

There are two unique characteristics with this cigar – first up, it is packaged in the red and tan tube.  Secondly, it is the thinnest ring gauge of the La Aroma de Cuba line – this cigar only is available in a 5.5 x 48 vitola.

The blend of this cigar has a Honduran Wrapper and Binder with a blend of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco fillers.   I have a couple of these, so I will smoke and do a detailed review and assessment.
