Reunited and it feels so good!
For years, cigar fans waited for Ashton and Arturo Fuente to collaborate again. And with Symmetry, it finally happened. Some things in life are worth waiting for, and we're happy to report that Ashton Symmetry is most certainly one of them. Ashton and Arturo Fuente have teamed up to create a scrumptious, medium-bodied morsel. Symmetry also serves as the first Ashton-branded cigar to contain Nicaraguan tobacco.
A perfect Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that’s oily, smooth, and golden brown is accented by a Dominican binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. This well-proportioned blend offers notes of cinnamon, caramel, and a hint of white pepper on the finish. Naturally, it holds true to the smoothness and balance that Ashton is known for.
Ashton Symmetry was named the #8 Cigar of 2015, AND the #6 Cigar of 2017, and received numerous well-deserved 94-ratings, noting: "Both creativity and textbook precision integrate quite elegantly here, as notes of nougat, toast, chicory and nuts blossom on the palate and stay interesting down to the robusto’s last puff."
In my opinion, one of the best Fuente/Ashton collaborations in years. Rich, medium flavored smoke with a distinct coffee undertone. The pairing of Nicaragua and DR fillers come through as a combination of Nicaragua earthiness with a sweet DR bouquet. These are without a doubt my new favorite stick. So good, I ordered three boxes of Robustos.
When I saw the new Ashton had come out, I waited until I ran across it in my local cigar shop and bought one to try. I was really impressed with the flavor and complexity. As close as you can get to the ESG for a fraction of the price. Outstanding cigar.
I grabbed these in Prestige on a whim, since I am a big fan of ESGs and VSGs. Construction was fantastic, the burn was nearly perfect. Ash held on for days, and it burned for days. The stick started out with a fairly strong pepper note, but 1/3 of the way through the stick it mellowed out with nearly sweet creamy notes. The blend is fantastic. This stick is going to be in my humidor rotation for a long time to come.
When I found out Ashton was coming out with a new blend, I had to get my hands on them. I ordered a box and smoked one as soon as it came off the truck. It lived up to the Ashton name and will only get better with time in the humi.
