Ashton ESG

ESG... Extra Special Good? 

Ashton ESG is one of the rarest cigars on the market, no doubt. But if you have the cash and you can get your hands on some, you're in for a truly memorable experience. Carefully crafted at the renowned Arturo Fuente factory, ESG (Estate Sun Grown) employs an extremely scarce Dominican Sun Grown wrapper - a dark and oily leaf that's grown within the Fuente Estate.

Ashton's ESG is a perfectly rolled cigar, utilizing rare and well aged tobaccos to create a unique, full-bodied profile. Notes of leather, spices, nuts, earth and wood are perfectly balanced and delivered in remarkably smooth fashion. If you can only try one cigar in the Ashton profile, flip a coin between this and VSG. Each will treat you equally well.

Ashton ESG 22-Yr Salute received a most impressive 94-point score noting: "Marvelous notes of rich graham cracker and cracked black pepper concentrate with a creamy vibrancy in a consistent, precise draw. Buttery accents of sweet cedar segue into a seductive full-bodied finale."

It’s a solid A-
It’s a good smoke for someone who wants that Ashton flavor but better. I think I still prefer the 1926 Padron for the money.

Thumb down
Not full bodied at all, Mild to medium. Won't be buying this stick again. For that price their are many others better and definitely cheaper.

Full bodied it is NOT.
Excellent draw and structure but full bodied? I call shenanigans. I'd put this as mild to medium.

Easily the most perfect cigar
Perfect smoke with perfect construction... when you only want the very best. This is a solid five star product NOT a "this gets five stars for being a great $5 smoke". Every cigar in the Ashton ESG series is perfect. I would only smoke this with experienced smokers. A newbie would think its great, of course, but an experienced smoker will be able to truly appreciate it.

High-end cigar that I highly recommend!
Highly Recommended cigar worth the smoke. I bought the 5 pack of the Ashton ESG 22 Year Salute for my brother, dad and myself to smoke on Christmas (Today)! We father and I tried 2 a couple of weeks ago and knew this would be perfect. The cigars start very mild in flavor with an easy draw. About halfway through it starts getting an earthly flavor. By the end it's exploding in flavor but absolutely smooth. Took us about an hour and a half each to smoke. No nasty after taste. No cigar buzz/illness. Its been about 2 hours since the smoke and we are mellowed out.

Worth every penny. I'm an infrequent smoker (twice a month maybe), but when I do smoke, I sit down for hour or hour and half and really immerse myself in the experience. The Ashton ESG 22-Yr Salute is a phenomenal smoke. I was blown away by the construction and how it felt in my hand. Once lit, great flavor from start to finish overall a refined taste that really makes a statement. One of the greatest gifts you can give to a friend and share a fantastic moment experiencing this gorgeous cigar. Thanks CI, you guys have great service and I may never have tried this cigar without this site.
Customer Testimonials
....I am currently smoking the 24 year salute and it is absolutely fantastic. I don't know what it is because I was under the impression that the cigars were the same except for the size. This is very close to being my favorite cigar. I will have to have more to compare to my favorite, the opusX. This is going to be fun.
This is a mans cigar. So if you're not too sure, just don't smoke it, and leave it to the professionals.
This is a a great cigar. Don't drive afterwards, or try on an empty stomach.
By far, the best cigar I have ever had.
These seem to keep reproducing in my main humidor as I can't restrain myself from buying a handful every time I walk in my favorite cigar shop. I smoke maybe one a week and I am always floored by the complex flavor and flawless draw every time. Cosmetically, the stick is a work of art. Beautiful sun grown wrapper complimented by the totally awesome band. This is without a doubt one of the finest cigars in the world.
I don't think anyone can or ever will come close to producing this level of Cigar perfection. A couple of years ago I bought one in my local store and was skeptical at dropping $25 on a stick. Don't get me wrong. I have spent thousands on Cigars since I entered the realm of becoming a Cigar aficionado just never on a single Ashton. Man was I glad I did. What a Cigar. I think in the almost Two hours it took me to smoke that Churchill. Time stood still. I was mesmerized by the complexity of it. Full bodied but so refined. I knew right then and there I was to become $400 poorer, yet richer in ways money cannot provide. That Fuente clan sure do know how to make an incredible Cigar. Maybe it's me? But I think that the bulk of the amazing flavor comes from the wrapper? I know there are other components that make a Cigar what it is. That's just my thought. So. yes they are expensive but I can't say enough to tell everyone go without food. Drinks. Taking the wife out. Whatever you need to do. Get a box of these and break one out time to time and reward yourself with what is and will always be a truly memorable Cigar. Fit for Kings...But smoked by the masses.
Hands down the best cigar I have ever smoked. Incredibly complex in flavor, and an absolute joy to smoke. I've tried all of the salutes and I prefer the 20yr (churchill), but he'll I'd take any size, any day. I know these babies are expensive, but if you have the chance, indulge and enjoy one of these. You wont regret it. Use your upcoming birthday, new years, or hell, a Tuesday night as your excuse. Thanks CI for finally offering these hard to find gems.
