Description The original El Centurion came out in 2007 in limited release and was considered by many to be Pepin Garcia's masterpiece. Then in 2013 El Centurion returned, this time as a regular production cigar made in Garcia's My Father factory in Nicaragua with 100% Nicaraguan tobacco. Building on that legacy, two years later they released the H-2K-CT, a new extension of El Centurion featuring a hybrid wrapper from the US. The rest of the cigar is still comprised of Nicaraguan tobacco - grown, cured and fermented by the Garcia's. 
Review: Cigar Aficionado
the El Centurion H-2K-CT Toro is an intensely flavorful cigar with an unusual hybrid wrapper. The box-pressed H-2K-CT cigars are medium to full bodied and beautifully constructed at the My Father Cigars S.A. factory.
Review: The Stogie Guys
The H-2K-CT brings a lot to the table. It’s balanced and restrained with a nice combination of both sweetness and spice. This is the best El Centurion since the original limited release, which still stands out to me as a particularly special cigar.

Cigar Virgin Sun Grown
Wrapper Dominican Republic
Binder Dominican Republic
Filler Ecuador
Description Ashton began in Philadelphia in 1985, ten years before the cigar boom. They had three cigars in their portfolio: the Ashton White Label, Aged Maduro, and Cabinet Selection. But it wasn’t until 1999 that Ashton really took off with their flagship brand the Ashton Virgin Sun Grown. Made at the famed Arturo Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic, the cigar is known for it’s gorgeous Ecuadorian grown wrapper and for being one of the first full bodied cigars. 
Review: The Stogie Guys
Overall, the Ashton VSG offers dark, luscious flavors without sacrificing its smooth balance, everything you would expect from a cigar developed for Ashton by Carlos Fuente.
Review: Cigar Aficionado
Slim and dark, this attractive cigar burns slowly, draws perfectly and imparts a rich, bready smoke balanced by notes of hickory, black pepper and rock candy
