"Everything but taste"
Good burn and construction, lots of white smoke. But the taste - where is it? Considering this is advertised as a "complex tasting" smoke, I thought it was one of the blandest cigars I've tried.

"Time to order some more..."
I just finished my first 5 La Fontana smokes so it's time to place another order. Very mild, even burning cigar, with a nice flavor I can't quite identify. I'm back for some more.

These are good smokes! I don't mind the sweet tip on this cigar. Has a good effortless draw, lots of creamy smoke, fine construction and a good burn. Very mild and light on the wallet.

"Light, spicy-sweet, excellent cigar."
The flavor is an excellent, dry, mildly spicy smoke from beginning to end. The slightly sweet infusion in the wrapper balances nicely against the other flavors. The cigar is reminiscent of a flakey pastry with pistachios. The draw is perfect, the ash is solid, the packing is even throughout the smoke. The only complaint is that the wrapper on the current ones is prone to unwrap and is a bit delicate. But the flavor is wonderfully mild and complex.

"One of my Favorites!"
If you like a mild smooth cigar, this one is for you! I love the sweet-nutty taste, it is like an after dinner dessert. Nicely constructed, burns evenly, draws effortlessly, never harsh. Great smoke for the price.

"If You Like the Montecristo V"
If you love the Montecristo Serie V Robusto but can't afford to smoke it regularly, this is a good bet. I would call it an 88. Rich, smooth, creamy, and mild from end to end. A bit light on the draw, but with a rich cool cloud, this is a pretty good second to the Monte at about a third of the price. Go for it!

"What a wonderful cigar"
I am a novas at cigars, only been smoking them for a month. I have a very wide selection (thanks to Debbie, who took my order).I have been trying a different one each night. I just finished a La Fontana Vintage Galileo. Wow! I have been looking for an every day cigar. I think I have found it. Lit very well, great ash, nice smooth aroma, a little bitter at first but I smoked it to the nub. The best medium cigar for me so far. And, just like a few of the other reviews; What a great find, at a great price!!

Finished the box. 17 of 20 were excellent, a nice loooong finish of creamy tobacco flavor. My refill order is in guys. They needed a week in the humidor is all.

"Add a little age = a very good cigar"
Bought a box on recommendation and the first 2 were not so good, a week in the humi and the chemical taste turned to flavor. A mild,easy full draw with a creamy tobacco flavor. Well constructed with a firm head.Nice burn and aroma.If the rest of the box is this good I will be buying fewer Ashtons and saving a bundle. Keeping my fingers crossed.

"VERY GOOD MILD CIGARS"
Even though I do not lose any sleep over these cigars, they are very good. Not harsh or spicy, just very slightly sweet and flavorful.
