The Ashton Cabinet Selection No. 6 is another masterpiece made by Pepin Garcia and family. According to the Ashton website:

The Ashton Cabinet is the “White Burgundy” of cigars. “White Burgundy” gets its rich complex taste from the soil and aging of the grape in French oak barrels. The Cabinet’s 4 to 5 year old Dominican filler blend has a rich, complex and well rounded taste. The extraordinary Connecticut shade wrapper is aged for an extra year and has an elegant palamino color resulting in a smooth and creamy flavor. The Ashton Cabinet includes no less than six different tobaccos and ends with a “big finish.” Seven years pass from seedling to finished cigar before Ashton Cabinet is brought to fruition and presented for your smoking pleasure.

The Ashton Cabinet Selection series is offered in eleven different vitolas.

This is one of the few full boxes of cigars I have purchased and although it goes against everything I have ever been told, I did so without trying one first simply based on how many people were seeking them out. Besides, I figured if I was not a fan I could always find another enthusiast who would jump at the chance to try them out.

There isn’t much left that hasn’t been said about the Ashton VSG. It is an extremely popular line of cigars made for Ashton by the Fuentes. If you are new to the VSG, then surf on over to my review of the VSG Sorcerer and read the background info on this smoke there.

Below is the fifth dual review in our series of 6.

Joe K: Ashton brand cigars have been touted as one of the more consistently enjoyable lines available. Being an Arturo Fuente product, that should not come as much of a surprise to anyone. As of this review, I had not tried many of the Ashton line but enjoyed my recent experience with an Ashton ESG, despite some construction issues and looked forward to trying another within the line.

Stephen: Up this time for review is the Ashton Aged Maduro. The cigars hail from the famous Chateau de la Fuente, a farm and factory known for producing some of the most demanded cigars in the world. It sports a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. Ashton claims the flavors come from the wrapper being aged in Sherry finished French oak barrels. Well we will just see about that.

After a delicious late lunch of grilled chicken kabobs and a couple of outstanding craft brews, my loving wife and I decided to finish out our day with a couple of cigars. Her choice for the early evening, was an Ashton VSG Enchantment, while I decided on a slightly longer venture with an Ashton ESG 20 year salute.

I picked up a few of these at another Aston Taste of Excellence events. These are great events. That evening the Cabinet Selection was paired with Oban 14 because it starts sweet but ends with a hint of spice. For this review, I smoked the cigar with no libation. The Cabinet’s Dominican filler is aged at least four to five years. The wrapper is aged one year longer. Aston claims no less than six different fillers in the cigar and it takes seven years to make it from seed to cigar.

Ashton and the Ashton Classic came on the scene back in 1994 I believe. It is the brain child of Philly native Robert Levin. He partnered with the Fuentes who manufacture many of the cigars that bear the Ashton name. Known for superb quality and construction on all their lines the Classic seems to be no exception.

The cigars for this review were kindly provided by CigarsDirect.com, your source for premium cigars.

Ashton VSG (Virgin Sun Grown) was introduced in 1999 and it's without doubt the most successful blend of the marca. Conceived in close cooperation with Oliva and Fuente families, it is blended from Dominican tobacco aged for 4-5 years, wrapped in an Ecuadorian leaf which is slowly matured under the sunlight filtered by clouds always present in the region. It has scored countless 90+ ratings from CI/CA and is considered one of the most sought-after cigars on the market.
