The more expensive and established cigars are, the bigger markup there is if you buy cigars in brick-and-mortar stores. You can easily end up paying 50% more for the luxury of smoking Ashton cigars or other top-brands if you go to your local retailer.
That's why we always recommend that people buy Ashton cigars online (it has nothing to do with the face that we are an online cigar retailer, we swear). For starters, while Ashton cigars aren't the priciest around, they are far from inexpensive. But Ashton is also one of the biggest names in cigars and demand is sky-high in local stores. That drives up prices for Ashton cigars big time.
Another big pro that makes us buy Ashton cigars online is the fact that they're all here! If you walk into a B&M they'll have Ashton cigars for sure, but they might well not have your favorite Ashton cigar, let alone in the size you like. But when you buy Ashton cigars online, you can choose the blend, shape, and quantity with ease. And the Ashton cigars are (almost) never out of stock.
And what cigars they are!
One of our favorite Ashton cigars that you can often only really buy online is the Heritage Puro Sol. These Ashton cigars are unusual in that they are made with only sun grown tobacco: wrapper, binder, and long-fillers. But while a lot people think of powerful cigars like the Ashton Virgin Sun Grown when they think of sun grown cigars, the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol is smooth, balanced, and medium-strength. That's because Ashton chose a flavorful, delicate, and rare Cameroon wrapper for the cigar. As a result, the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol delivers an aromatic and satisfying smoke full of notes like spicy-sweet cinnamon, leather, coffee, and cedar. Freakin' fantastic, even by Ashton standards.
Sometimes we're in the mood for something a little spicier from our Ashton cigars, though. Once again, we can often only scratch that itch when we order Ashton cigars online because you'd be hard-pressed to find the rare Ashton Symmetry in your local B&M. This elegant but strong Ashton cigar is the only Ashton to use Nicaraguan tobacco in its long-filler blend.
Those Nicaraguan ligeros are combined with a strong but balanced Ecuadorian Habano wrapper, Dominican binder, and mellower Dominican long-fillers for this Ashton cigar. The result is classic Ashton but with a twist. Expect lots of pepper, coffee, earth, cherry, and leather. It's potent, but restrained and balanced like an Ashton should be - a truly modern Ashton that we're happy to buy by the box when we order Ashton cigars online.
