Ashton Puro Sol Robusto CigarSteeped in the tradition of the two fine cigar families of the Fuentes and the Meerapfels, the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto is Meerapfel on the outside and Fuentes on the inside. Wrapped in a highly touted Cameroon wrapper, specially chosen by Richard Meerapfel himself and grown in pristine primeval water, the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto cigar has a sweetly-spiced, but unexpectedly mild, flavor which is Puro Sol in essence as well as in name--made with 100% sun-grown tobaccos in wrapper, filler, and binder.

The Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto story begins in a very special place, the western side of the Central African rainforest in a place called Bangou. On an adventure seeking great places to grow tobacco, Richard Meerapfel walked deep into this lush and dense area and discovered the small remote village of Guereki, consisting of just a few primitive huts with a Village Chief.  Looking expansively around the dense and fertile area he called home, the chieftain explained that Guereki was blessed with "Ngou Ti Zapa", water from the gods. Though the land was untouched for thousands of years, since the very beginning of this natural rain forest, Meerapfel was able to convince the villagers that they should grow "Manga", the tribal word for tobacco.

The result was beyond expectation:  huge leaves with a texture unlike anything Meerapfel had ever seen before. When cured, this tobacco had a sweet flavor and texture all its own. While the villagers called it "Mossoro ti degbe ti sesse", which translated means, “the richness from under the ground,” Richard Meerapfel called it MMS African Gold. When asked to supply his premium wrapper for his first joint venture with the Fuentes’ prime filler and binder, Richard Meerapfel immediately offered his “richness from under the ground” which had been nourished by the water of the gods.

This nicely spiced, medium-bodied smoke is a robusto cigar that exhibits the best qualities of its Cameroon wrapper leaf. Slightly sweet and extremely aromatic, Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto will make you want to sniff the foot of the cigar as it smolders. It will bring to mind pleasant memories of holidays spent with family and fine foods, as the heavenly smell of ginger, cinnamon, and nutmeg permeate the air. As you smoke your way to the foot of this cigar, the spices eventually give way to a mild leather flavor, described by some as a wood graininess on the finish.

There is almost no bite to this pricey cigar, which makes the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto a perfect smoke for those who prefer mild cigars or for a new cigar aficionado not yet ready for the more intense flavors to come. Even those who like it seem to feel that the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto is too pricey for such a smooth and tasty smoke.  However, there are times in this life when a pleasurably evocative and reflective smoke is the only one that will satisfy.
