I m a maduro smoker and have had the high end and the low end maduros. Ashton aged maduro just didn t cut it. Now Arturo Fuente has his hands in this one and I am really surprised, because the Privada #1 maduro is Excellent ! This Ashton was just too plain tasting. Everything else was GREAT, but NOT the taste.
Nice dark oily wrapper smells of sweet chocolate. Very smooth medium body smoke which seems to transition throughout. My new go to cigar.

I think I went into it with the wrong expectations after reading the reviews. I got these expecting a sweet creamy smooth cigar. Unfortunately, all I really picked up was the sweetness - it was dry and a little bitter/harsh. If it weren't for the subtle sweetness it would have been a very bland cigar.
Smoked one of these last night and had to write a review. This cigar was medium body, sweet, spicy and very smooth. I tried to wait a minute between dragging on this one but it was hard. The flavor was awesome. I'd smoked one of these from the local shop and it was good, but this one came out of my humi and had rested a few weeks since buying from 5-pack frenzy. The aroma of this cigar was very nice and didnt seem to linger. Smoked it in the basement man cave and an hour later there wasn't much of a smell which is great! Burn and construction are top notch. Very good cigar that i will look forward to smoking again soon. As always with Ashtons wish they were cheaper but smoking one tells you why they're not.
