Review Notes: This line is starting to aggravate me. I've probably smoked about 5 of these over the years. The all had at least 3 months of box time. They are getting worse. I loved the first. Liked the second, third. My fourth was average. Yesterday's was average. The average ones had uneven burns and weak flavor profiles. When these are on they have a nice slightly sweet, sometimes spicy, creamy, rich, maduro flavor profile. I'll age the rest another 3 months. If they are average, I am done with these. I don't like paying $5-6 at auction for "average" cigars. I'll let you know in October. Consider yourself on "notice" Ashton. Tread cautiously here.

"A wonderful old friend"

Review Notes: There's just something about the shape and size of this wonderful Ashton Aged maduro Pyramid that I can't describe. I just like it and it makes me feel comfortable. Sure these sticks are pricey and I am paying an extra $4 just for the sharp Ashton label. I love the cool, mild, yet complex taste and finish of these babies. When they age right you can't beat it for the look of the shiny maduro wrap. For some reason I always seem to have burn problems with these. Nothing that a few "welds" from the lighter can't fix. Comparable to the Partagas Black Torpedo ($6) and the Nestor 2000 box pressed torpedo($2) (once aged properly for about 3 months) in flavor.
