ashtonashton esg 22 year salute


In terms of flavor, the Ashton ESG is right on track with its other favorable qualities. The cigar starts off with earth and spiciness. Sweetness soon comes into the picture to make the first third an interesting mix. The second third offers more sweetness, stronger spice, and some tasty nuts. This is the highlight so far and is very enjoyable. The final third caps things off with nuts, earth, and wood. I’d definitely call the 22 Year Salute full-bodied all the way.

Once it was all said and done, the Ashton ESG 22 Year Salute definitely impressed me. The cigar had excellent construction and a solid burn. Add in a delicious flavor profile, and you have yourself a winner from a superb brand. The cigar comes in packs of five or boxes of 25. A single sells for around $20. Yes, I know.  That’s a lot for a single cigar.  But you get what you pay for here.  I’d at least pick one up for a very special occasion, especially if you want something flavorful with a kick.

The Ashton ESG 22 Year Salute earns a rating of 3.75 out of four stars.

601 Red Label Habano Robusto

Described as a cigar for the experienced smoker, the 601 Red Label is said to be all about spice.  Amilcar Perez Castro is responsible for the cigar’s blending.  Now the question is this: will this cigar be too spicy, or will its “kick” be just what the doctor ordered?  Let’s discover the answer…

Measuring 5 x 50, the 601 Red Label Habano is just one of five sizes in the line.  The cigar’s interior is made up of Nicaraguan tobacco, and it’s topped off with a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper. In other words, this is a Nicaraguan puro.  As mentioned, the Red Label Habano is strong and is said to be full-bodied.
