Review by Danny Kroud on June 03, 2011
It bears the name Puro Sol because the wrapper, filler and binder are made from 100% sun grown tobaccos. This cigar marks the first time a Cameroon wrapper has surrounded an Ashton and the results are great. The cigar starts off mild-to-medium, and quickly becomes a medium bodied stick. The cigar was packed full of fresh tobacco flavors with a tinge of citrus. This well-made cigar imparts a lot of sweet tobacco,extremely aromatic, and rich chocolate notes. Black cherry and spice flavors also come through before a toasty finish. I like a big stick. Its an evening stick. Great for summer lounging. I generally get 2 hours out of the stick. Construction is excellent and I get a darn near perfect burn and draw. Dark veins run seamlessly throughout the wrapper, and its oily sheen shimmers in the sunlight. While I should be out mowing the lawn, I goof off with a Puro Sol...listening to the neighbors lawn mowers. And sitting under the covered canopy thinking Im glad Im not them. Throughout the cigar, I get the taste of nuts and flawless creaminess. You know how some cigars are just OK when you light them? And then there is a mans trophy? This stick is a trophy. You can crawl around the catalogs looking for the next great treasure but I will take the solid choice of the Ashton. No surprises. I know Im going to get a fantastic experience. I love this cigar!
