There is a new size that has been added to Ashton’s San Cristobal Ovation line. It’s a 5 3/4 x 54 belicoso known as the Eminence. This is a cigar that was launched at the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show.
The blend for the San Cristobal Ovation Eminence is the same as the rest of the line. It consists of a Mexican San Andres wrapper over Nicaraguan binder and filler. As with the rest of the Ashton’s San Cristobal offerings, the Ovation is produced by the Garcia family at the My Father Cigars factory.
The Ovation was introduced in 2015 and was the first San Cristobal to use a Mexican wrapper. The Eminence is the third vitola in the Ovation line joining the Decadence (Toro) and Opulence (Robusto). Ovation has been limited to a production of 1,000 boxes per size.
