Ashton’s Estate Sun Grown (aka “Ashton ESG”) should have been called Ashton Exclusive Sun Grown, because this wrapper has never been used on any other cigar. It’s really amazing – in a cigar industry that’s been working hard for decades and decades to deliver innovative products, blends, and even gimmicks, you’d think they would have covered everything by now. Seriously! How is there a wrapper that hasn’t appeared on a cigar before?
The Fuentes are a crafty bunch, and they’re the operation behind much of the Ashton cigars, so we can accept that they still have some tricks up their sleeves. Maybe they’ll run out one day, but that day is certainly not coming any time soon.
So – why unleash this delicious Dominican sun-grown Chateau de la Fuente wrapper on the world now? Well, the Ashton brand has been doing so well for so long that, in true cigar industry fashion, it was time for an anniversary celebration stick. In this case, the Ashton ESG cigar marks 20 years of continued success, and it does so in spectacular fashion.
The wrapper itself is dark, oily, and packed with rich tobacco flavor. Inside, of course, is aged Dominican filler and binder. The result is tremendous – a full bodied smoke that remains balanced and that provides flavors of spice, nuts, leather, and a creamy finish that just wraps everything up in a tasty bow.
The Ashton ESG earned a rating of 94 from Cigar Aficionado for its deliciously nutty profile, and now, if you’ll excuse us, we’re going to go raid the inventory shelves to pilfer one for our afternoon smoke. We invite you to have a box sent to your home at your leisure.
