Am enjoying the last of a 5 year old box. They only get better. Am ordering more.
These cigars are fantastic! It burned evenly throughout, the flavor was excellent not overpowering at all, and remained evenly intact through all my smoking sessions with this cigar. I can see why these cigars are not on the cheap side and well worth its money.
Great cigar, smooth, very good burn...smoke it down to nothing. Great from the first puff to the last.
This cigar is the BEST cigar I have tried, it really BOOOM! it........
this cigar has it all. best draw, burn, appearance, taste, consistency and did i say taste WOW!!! what a taste
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.
The ESG, is immeasurable! For those of us who love a great smoke... this is like Mercedes Benz AMG at 160 mph.
I have treated myself to many $30 Cigars... The Ashton ESG is by far the best money spent - for a great cigar.
This is a truly superb stick. It is one of only a few truly super premium cigars that s quality, construction, and flavor is entirely justified by its price-point. My palate often tends to favor the musty and slightly sweet flavor of very well aged pre-rolled Dominican tobacco and the Ashton Estate Sun Grown 20 Year Salute delivers that better than almost any other cigar, with the possible exception of the Davidoff Millennium Blend Robusto and Lancero, two of my other most highly prized smokes. I absolutely love spicy Nicaraguan blends, particularly Padron, but when it comes to the musty, well-aged Dominican sweetness I described the 20 year salute is very tough to beat. You can t do much better. Buy these cigars, you won t regret it.
These cigars are among the very best out there and one of the few ultra-premium sticks that have a consistent taste, construction, and quality that matches the price. You really can t go wrong. I ve smoked more than a few of the 20, 22, and 23 year Salutes and one five pack of the 21 s. I personally prefer the ESG 20 Year because of the prevalence of the musty, slightly sweet taste of the well-aged Dominican tobacco, which all the ESG s have. The 22 year is absolutely great also but is a bit spicier and stronger than the 20 year, but with no less body. These are cigars that you should buy if at all possible. You will not regret it.
