Ashton Cabinet No. 8 cigars are exquisitely handcrafted with 5 different 4 to 5 year-aged Dominican tobaccos draped in seamless Connecticut shade wrappers aged 1 extra year. A marvelously smooth, well-rounded and aromatic cigar that's also rich, creamy and multidimensional. A must try!
I picked one of these up this morning and smoked it while driving. I usually smoke Maduros or naturals with a darker wrapper, but I was curious about these because I love Ashton Aged Maduros. The stick lasted about an hour and a half, but I smoke cigars furiously so it would probably last 2 hours for most. The burn, draw, and construction were perfect, like an Ashton should be. It had a nice flavor to it, I would describe it as a fuller bodied Montecristo. The flavor was good from start to finish. So all in all it was a great cigar, but not a unique one. You can find a similar quality cigar for a lower price, but hey, if you have the money to burn all the time, you can't beat the perfect burn and easy draw.1 0
very uneven burn requiring frequent touch-ups. taste was nothing special, especially considering the price. would not buy again0 0
Don't let the "mild" designation fool you. This is an outstanding smoke. Full of flavor, excellent draw, perfect construction, wonderful aroma. Worth every penny!0 0
