The San Cristobal brand was created in 2007, and Revelation marks the fourth line in the portfolio. As with all San Cristobals, Revelation is made for Ashton by the Garcia family at My Father Cigars in Estelí, Nicaragua.
While the binder and filler are made up of Nicaraguan tobacco, this new San Cristobal is made with an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper. It's actually the same wrapper leaf used in Ashton's Virgin Sun Grown blend, which is rolled in the Dominican Republic. But while the Virgin Sun Grown is covered with a top-priming leaf, the wrapper used for Revelation is viso, or mid-plant priming. As such, the wrapper is lighter—what the company describes as more "chocolate brown" in color.
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Sumatra
Strength: Medium to Full Bodied
