Ashton Classic Crystal #1 (Glass Tube)
Ashton cigars are made from a unique blend of select, specially-aged Dominican leaves and surrounded by smooth-smoking Connecticut shade-grown wrappers. Made in the Dominican Republic by Arturo Fuente, Ashton cigars have a mild, creamy draw and are always consistent in flavor and aroma. Preferred by cigar smokers of every experience worldwide, if you really do appreciate fine cigars, Ashton is a certified 'must try!
Came highly recommended to me, maybe just not my taste but there was an overpowering spicy flavor for the first 10 minutes of smoking which mellowed out into a cedar and almond flavor. Bottom line, I've spent less on much better cigars.
Just got a box of 10 and couldn't be more pleased. Ashtons have been remarkably consistent for me through the years and this one is the best. Perfectly wrapped, very smooth taste and a great aroma.
My favorite cigar. These NEVER disappoint. Great, distinct but mild taste with always good draw and full burn. Perfect aroma.
I just found the construction is be inconsistent. Everything else about this cigar was very good to excellent: appearance-flavor-taste-burn. The problem that I found was that I never knew exactly how much to clip off before firing up the cigar. This was because sometime I found a very difficult draw---other times, it was like sucking on a straw. I can see why, for the most part, this cigar gets high grades, but I shall most probably not buy these again.
