Opted to try this Ashton for a late morning smoke with a cup of coffee today. I couldn't have made a better choice! This was an extremely smooth cigar... The construction was perfect, the burn even, and the smoke thick and creamy. I did not want this to end! My palate is not the most refined, but I picked up notes of nuts and wood early on, with a slight (but not at all harsh) spiciness as the smoke progressed. It was the perfect compliment to a medium bodied cup of joe with light cream.
"When I have found intense pain relieved, a weary brain soothed, and calm, refreshing sleep obtained by a cigar, I have felt grateful to God, and have blessed His name." - Charles Haddon Spurgeon
