The finest money can buy
“Dependable” is one of those words that gets thrown around a lot in the cigar game, but what does it really mean? Well, to me it means that you know what you’re getting. Whether it’s three in the afternoon or three in the morning, whether there’s rain, snow, or sweltering heat, whether you just found out that your old baseball card is worth six figures or whether you just got your credit card statement after your wife’s little shopping spree, it will deliver the exact same performance. Dependability. It’s a quality that’s often taken for granted, and one that deserves much more credit than it’s given.
Talk about Ashton cigars and within a couple of sentences, dependability is bound to come up. Made in the Dominican, they combine an aged blend of mellow Dominican tobacco leaves with a golden brown Connecticut shade wrapper. The result of this pairing is rich and smooth, with a mellow to medium body that boasts universal appeal. Well-made, good quality, satisfying, and yes, highly dependable – these are the things that Ashton is made of.
Nice! Ashton has just received a 90-rating! Cigar Aficionado notes: "The leather and citrus notes of this lonsdale become nutty before transitioning to a sweet nougat and marzipan finish."
