Qué bolá? You probably won’t have a chance to travel to Cuba any time soon, even though it’s now legal. But! You’re in luck, because your friends at Ashton are bringing a bit of Cuba to Habanos Cigar Lounge.
On Thursday, April 23, 6-10 pm, Ashton Sales Representative Jon Murphy will host the La Aroma de Cuba Grand Tasting and Celebration. (Ashton is the parent company of La Aroma de Cuba cigars.)
Don your Panama hat and guayabera or playero shirt and join us. And if you’re dressed in all your Cuban-finery (which, luckily, is also incredibly comfortable), you could win a fabulous prize.
Guests will receive a Mi Amor and a Mi Amor Reserva cigar, which will allow you to fall in love with them, if you haven't already. We encourage you to apply the $10 event ticket cost to any Ashton Cigars purchase. Luckily, you can then take advantage of the following discounts during the event:
• Buy 4 and receive an additional cigar.
• Buy 10 and receive a 3-pack of cigars + a La Aroma De Cuba Lighter.
• Buy a box (at a 20% discount) and receive a 3-pack of cigars a La Aroma de Cuba lighter, and t-shirt.

"We are profiling two exquisite blends from our La Aroma de Cuba portfolio, Mi Amor and Mi Amor Reserva," said Murphy. "Both are handcrafted in Estelí, Nicaragua by the masterful, Jose 'Pepin' Garcia." At the event, "We will highlight the remarkable nuances present in each cigar and savor their exceptional distinctions; results achieved only through Pepin Garcia’s decades of expertise in aging, fermenting and blending the finest tobaccos to a pinnacle standard."

From the Ashton website: “An old Cuban brand from the late 1800s, La Aroma de Cuba was abandoned and off the market for more than 100 years. In 2002, courtesy of Ashton, La Aroma de Cuba is reborn into the modern era of cigars. The original artwork was recovered and salvaged to preserve the brand's rich history and vintage Cuban motif.”
