Ashton Aged Maduro CigarsThe Ashton Aged Maduro is a rare smoke that has been described as the cigar smoker’s “Bentley".    The Ashton Aged Maduro incorporates only the finest and richest Dominican grown leaf for its filler and binder, and uses only the oiliest and silkiest Connecticut Shade grown tobacco for wrapping.   

Although many limited Connecticut broad leaves are picked for this cigar, very few are chosen. This strict selection process lends its self to a unique complexity, making Ashton cigars the most sought after premium cigars in the world.   

The creation of the Ashton Cigar Line began with a dream that Robert Levin had of becoming an importer and retailer of cigars and a true connoisseur of fine cigars. This dream was realized in 1985 with the help of the manufacturing expertise of world renowned Fuente family.  This highly respected family has made the most sought after cigars in America for decades, such as the highly acclaimed Fuente Opus X.  

 If you have ever had the pleasure of smoking the Opus X, you will agree you are in some seriously good company when it comes to smoking Ashton cigars. 

The Ashton Aged Maduro is naturally dark, and it has a smooth and spicy sweet taste that comes from proper fermenting and patience in the aging of the silky Connecticut Shade wrapper.   They are handcrafted by Arturo Fuente and are truly fit for a king.  The construction is absolutely flawless, with a beautifully dark and oily wrapper that is firm from head to toe and almost “rock-like”.  

The classic combination of DR long-fillers presents toasty hints of wood and cocoa that accompany its creamy, smooth flavor.  During the burn, unique flavors of leather and earth dance in and out, with a spicy sweet finish to top off the delicate complexities.    

You would think with such a thick, oily wrapper leaf that the burn would suffer, but this is not the case. The white ash stays strong and the draw is effortless.  Much like the start, the finish is mild, but complex, and the aroma is unobtrusive, much like a toasty wood fire on a chilly day.  Its relaxation properties have been described as making Valium look like part of the caffeine family so plan accordingly! 

The Ashton Aged Maduro #60 is a 7 ½ inch x 52 gage cigar packing a hefty, but well worth-it price of $10.00 per stick.  This is a substantial cigar requiring a good hour and a half or more to smoke, but don’t be surprised if you find yourself wishing you could light up another one despite the large investment of time.   

Also available are the #10, #15, #20, #30, #40, #50, #56, and the Maduro Pyramid.  With their sweet aroma and medium strength, each of these can be enjoyed on any occasion that warrants a special smoke. This cigar would be a great addition to any Maduro smoker’s collection.
