Ashton AGED MADURO No.10
Length/Ring: 5 x 50
Review by Lesley Foreman on March 27, 2011
I love Ashton cigars. These are not cheap vitolas by any standard. But I make a decent living and I like to treat myself. I have no other vices...really! So cigars is it. Of course, like every other smoking junkie, I find myself begging my wife to be kind to me. And that I just have to purchase these cigars, blah, blah. The Ashton maduro. The color varies from a rich oily brown to a deep tan color...even black sometimes. The texture is a bit rough...toothy. It is a somewhat rustic looking cigar. I also smoked the Ashton Classics and its a big difference in wrappers. But Ashton obviously does things for a reason. Upon light up, the body kicks off right away medium body with just a smack of a bite. After each puff, I am left with a soft creaminess on my mouth and tongue. The flavor is naturally sweet. The maduro wrapper mandates the flavor profile while the taste of burnt almonds swirls around in the creaminess. I really like the robusto size. First of, the price point makes it easier on me. Plus it gives me options I dont have with bigger sizes. Im more in control. This is a very full flavored cigar with loads of complexity, but is extremely smooth. Towards the end, it is never harsh or bitter. Great Cigar!
