Ashton 6×56 Maduro, Dug into the “Stashston”

2013-08-20 14.20.34As promised this morning, I dug into the “stash” and picked out a goodie for this afternoons romp through the woods. I am sure some of you out there reading this have a some good experiences with these and maybe one or two of you (Barron) may have not. I myself, enjoyed the crap out of this cigar from the moment I picked it. The construction and smell of this cigar should be copied over and over again by other cigar makers.

The aroma and flavor of this cigar was even complimented by a runner who said she could smell it a few hundred yards away and it was nicer as she got closer. This in itself is a hell of a compliment, sunshine always makes a day better and really gives you a chance to enjoy the surroundings. My dogs, the little guy on the left is “Chuck” and the other is “Buddy”, they could care less what I am smoking but probably just hoping I have another one with me and it will extend their time in the woods.

Okay, enough rambling about the ambiance and back to the cigar. The Ashton Maduro 56, is a big and powerful sort of cigar both in flavor and size. If your a cigar smoker who enjoys a Robusto or maybe a Toro I would advise you to step up a size when time permits and get one of these. The flavors I picked up were like an espresso and the cigar got very peppery in the last third, for those of you who like a spicy cigar then this will be a treat.2013-08-20 14.57.51I would be hard pressed to not give this cigar a 10 out of 10 on the Smoke Ring scale. The best part of this cigar is I know I have about 9 more like it still in my “wineador” waiting for me. My afternoon isn’t over and I think I may spend the rest of it on my back deck with a tall glass of “sweet tea” and another cigar or two.
