Review Notes: I do not understand the recent poor reviews for this very good cigar. Perhaps these members do not appreciate the spice and rich character of the Cameroon wrapper. These rank better than Hemingway and Don Carlos ... IMHO. The burn was very much improved, perhaps due to nearly an extra year aging since I last reviewed this fine cigar. The texture of the smoke in itself makes this a top notch cigar. Excellent roll, nice even burn and great draw. Very handsome chestnut brown wrapper. Delicious and well refined straight-forward tobacco flavor, accompanied by bread and traces of fancy nuts. I smoked this baby down to the nub, and almost burned my fingers. One of the very few cigars actually worth around $8. One of my top ten favorites. By all means, try one.

"A Real Treat If You Have $8 TO $10 To Spare"

Review Notes: This Ashton is one fine cigar. Well rolled, great draw. A teeny bit of an uneven burn, which I am guessing is due to the high quality of the Cameroon wrapper. It is a thick and oily wrapper, and struggles to burn evenly with the burn of the fillers. It in no way impedes the enjoyment of the cigar. The silky texture of the medium body smoke is among the finest I have ever experienced. Buttery, and smooth as leather. This attribute in itself makes this one of the few cigars worth this high of an asking price. The tobacco flavor is refined and delicious. There are overtones of toasty bread, and a hint of nuts. The next time there is an extra $10 to spare towards the cigar budget, I highly recommend trying an Ashton Heritage Puro Sol.
