No formal announcement was made. Existing stocks simply sold out and were not replenished.
Though the cigar is still listed on Ashton's website, it is no longer available at Holt's online store (Ashton's parent company) or any of the popular online vendors we checked.
Like the other cigars in the brand, these were made by the Garcias at My Father Cigars in Esteli. They featured one of the first wrapper leaves grown at the Garcia family's own farm. According to Ashton, Jamie Garcia hand selected the leaf used for production.
