Ashton Estate Sun Grown 23 Year Salute cigars are made in limited edition using only the rarest Dominican-grown tobaccos cultivated, cured, and aged at Chateau de la Fuente. These bold, spicy cigars deftly rolled into a Toro shape are a pleasure beyond expectation.
I have to review this cigar again. After smoking this one a while ago, i smoked and tried many cigars in hopes of finding something as good for cheaper. I found quite a few good stogies along the way and have collected quite a few. Tonight i lit up this 23 yr salute for only the 2nd time and there is no denying this cigar is perfect in every way. Flavor, Burn, Construction, the smoke is just magical. This is the one. If you have the means to try one or many, please do. I've rated a few cigars in the low 90's but this one is 100 - perfect accross the board.
I had a friend hook me up with one of these. Within minutes, I could tell it was special. I since have bought a box and have enjoyed 3 so far. Wow, great draw, smoke and burn. Flavor is medium with deep aromas and lots of spice. nicely packed and hold a very long white ash. consitant burn and flavors throughout. Smoke this all the way to the endit is that enjoyable. Yes, there is some $ here but it does not disappoint. Cognac or Scotch is the perfect companion! Just Do It!!!!
About as fine as it gets. Med-full strength, but it s so smooth, you don t care. Just wish I could hit the lottery to make this my daily smoke. Even the box is a work of art.
