At the 2009 IPCPR Ashton introduced the new San Cristobal Seleccion del Sol which, like the original San Cristobal, is blended by Don Pepin Garcia. This cigar features a Nicaraguan Sun Grown wrapper that was hand picked by Don Pepin and his son Jaime from the first crop of tobacco grown in the Estrella farm in Esteli, Nicaragua. This Nicaraguan puro is available in 3 sizes: Robusto 5 x 52, Belicoso 5.5 x 52 and Toro 6 x 52. The cigar looked nice, with a light caramel colored wrapper and triple cap. The pre-light aroma was light off the wrapper and slightly more obvious off the foot with hints of cedar and sweetness. At a couple points during the recording of this review we experienced some technical difficulties, but you’ll get all the important information. So now it’s time to cut the cigars and set fire to the end. Since we missed it in the video…remember, Nothing Beats a Nice Tight Ash!
