Ashton Cigars will unveil a new line of cigars under the Ashton brand this Fall. The Ashton Symmetry will be the first new line introduced under the Ashton brand since the Ashton ESG line was launched in 2006. The cigar is expected to be showcased by the company at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show. Information on the Ashton Symmetry was first reported to retailers earlier this week, and details were outlined by Cigar Aficionado.
Under Ashton Cigars eponymous Ashton brand, the company has worked with Fuente family to create their blends. The Ashton Symmetry not only includes tobaccos from the Fuente’s Chateau de la Fuente and Villa Gonzalez in the Dominican Republic, but also the Fuente’s Un Bien Vecino located in Esteli, Nicaragua. While other Ashton Cigar brands (San Cristobal and La Aroma de Cuba) use Nicaraguan tobacco, this marks the first time the eponymous brand is using it. The blend was done by Carlito Fuente and will be made at Tabacalera A. Fuente y. Cia. in the Dominican Republic.
