Review Notes: At first light, I noticed that this cigar had a very toasted flavor to it. Smoking it down about 1/4 of the way I noticed that it developed a slightly creamy finish. Halfway through, the flavor changed and it tasted like I was smoking a wooden cedar plank. It was not very enjoyable. The smoke became somewhat harsh and the cedar flavor/sensation was overpowering. The flavor eventually mellowed out, but it was just not what I expected. The wrapper was very oily, which was nice to see. The filler was very tight, but the cigar had a good draw. Unfortunately, the cigar had a very uneven burn and I had to try to even it out several times. The cigar only burned evenly for about the first inch. When the cigar was about 2/3 smoked, it randomly went out. I was a bit peeved since I was actively smoking it. I had to actively work to keep the cigar from going out from then on. Then, to top it off, the cigar began to burn very hot for the last 2" or so. It was so hot that I just put it in the ashtray and walked away. The cigar was VERY smokey, and the smoke was a very thick white smoke. More smokey than the typical cigar. The only upside I had to the cigar, aside from the appearance, was the 2 hour smoke time, which is to be expected with a Churchill, but it was still nice to have it last that long. If you like this cigar, you'll definitely get your money's worth. Unfortunately, I hated it. This was recommended to me, along with the Ashton Maduros. I'll try the Maduros, but never again will I touch another Ashton Classic.
