"Stick with the Belli's these were awful"
The Belllicoso is one of the best cigars I've smoked a truly fantastic blend so I tried a five pack of these. I just finished my 3rd one of the robustos if you could call it "finishing" it because I threw it away. All three were rolled way too tight. I ran a skewer through the third so the cold draw was atleast promising but nooo. Bad burn, no smoke, before the end of the first third, what little flavor I could get turned acrid. Will by more Belli's and maybe try some other sizes but these were a waste of money for me.

"Very nice smoke"
No flaws in construction on the 3 I've smoked so far and I expect I'll smoke more. Lightly spicy on the open with hints of molasses in the middle. Draw has been perfect for me didn't have to "pull" but not loose. I like a Connecticut Shade once in in a while which I consider mild so I'd call this one medium and a winner at that.

"Nice Mild Cigar"
After going through a box of VSG's, I expected this cigar to exhibit the same strenth as it and other sun grown premiums. It doesn't; it has a terrific, spicy mild flavor, but won't give the spice kick you might expect from an all-sungrown, cameroon-wrapped cigar. The draw was a little too tight to suit my tastes, but it was well constructed and left a nice white ash. It is somewhat overpriced, like all Ashtons in my opinion (except for the VSG). If you like cigars in the strength range of an Ashton Aged Maduro, you might like this.
