Ashton cigars are a lesson in moderation and a line in the sand for tradition. You won't find giant ring-gauges, double-ligeros, or ultra-intense Nicaraguan tobaccos in the Ashton lineup. No sir, they stick to the time-tested combination of the Dominican Republic tobacco and classic vitolas, or sizes.
And no vitola is quite as classic – or as popular back in the old days – as the humble Ashton Corona Cigars. Corona cigars are generally four to six inches long and between a 42 and a 46 ring-gauge. They’re modestly-sized cigars that don't take too long but are still big enough to satisfy. Corona cigars may have fallen out of favor as smokers moved towards bigger cigars that last for hours, but they still are one of the all-time greats.
Ashton Corona Cigars are the perfect way to try a new blend, fit in a cigar break with (relatively) limited time, and enjoy a cigar that fits easily in the hand and doesn't get in the way of whatever else you're doing. Also, since the cigars are thinner, the wrapper makes up a bigger part of the blend. That makes some cigars shine in the corona size.
Plus, if you really want a longer smoke, just light up a second corona!
And at the end of the day, a lot of Ashton cigars are stellar as corona cigars.
The Ashton Cabinet Series is the standard Ashton Classic on a whole other level. Like the Ashton classic, it's a mild blend of Dominican long-fillers with a genuine Connecticut shade wrapper. But the wrapper has been aged significantly longer for a smoother and more complex smoke. The corona isn't just a natural pairing for a Connecticut cigar: it's also a perfect way to savor that gloriously aged wrapper.
If you're in the mood for something just as smooth but a little darker and richer, try the Ashton Corona Cigars in Aged Maduro. These beauties deliver sweet flavors of dark chocolate, creamy coffee, cedar, and oak. The smoke production and flavors are seriously impressive for such small cigars and the thinner sizes just work better. If you love the Ashton Aged Maduro corona cigars (and you will), try them in the longer Churchill size for comparison: the critics agree it's the best way to enjoy these Maduro cigars.
Finally, take a trip into the world of ultra-premium Ashton cigars with the Ashton VSG Tres Mystique. This dark and zesty cigar delivers an even bigger flavor in a small cigar and is an affordable way to try one of Ashton's most exclusive brands. Caramel, chocolate, earth, and hickory-spice make for one heck of a smoke.
