This Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Belicoso No.2 cigar is made in Dominican Republic. Outside, you'll find a Cameroon wrapper. Inside, the binder is Dominican, and the filler is Dominican. This is a Torpedo cigar with a length of 4.80 and a ring gauge of 49.
The Puro Sol is amazing. It has quite a history. The wrapper was chosen to be grown on the western side of Africa in a small area that had perfect soil for the Fuentes needs. With that in mind, I find that the cigar does well with some humidor aging. After a month or two, the cigar is sweet, rich, smooth, and creamy with just a hint of spice. There are no flavors that jump out at you. They are subtle and complex. The last half hits the sweet spot and the creaminess is huge. The size is perfect for me on my way home from work. About an hour. I find myself watching the clock around an hour before I can leave because I know that Puro Sol is waiting for me. I grab a bottle of cold water from the soda machine and the ride home is wonderful.
