The Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto is interesting in that the name pretty much says it all. Translated, Puro Sol means Pure Sun, as this is how this particular wrapper was grown. It shows in the dark brown hue. A beautiful cigar in the color aspect of it.

A wonderful cigar with older origins, but available since the early 80's to the general public. The Cohiba Coronas Especiales is a Humidor lovers dream. The flavor is good from the buy, but a little aging does some amazing wonders to this one.

Very nice smoke, particularly for the price. Having recently tried the Padron # 6000, and enjoyed it, I decided to go out on a limb and see what else Padron had to offer. I'm very impressed.

During my research, I came across a note on the Padron #6000. Now, I'm primarily a Cuban man and do not generally delve into the Nicaraguan smokes, but this caught my eye. It seems that the demand for these cigars has become so great that the company had to place a cap on the amount that could be made each year, so that they could insure that the quality would remain the same.

H. Upmann Sir Winston is probably one of the biggest cigars that I've ever smoked and one of the most attractive. The rest, well... was a bit much. I like a good cigar that will let you know that it is there, mind you, but this one was too demanding of attention.

I've never been much on the smaller cigars, but the Ashton Esquire Maduro really impressed me. Very nice overall flavor, and very good construction. Apparently the Maduros are well aged, about 5 years, before put on the market. It really shows in the flavor.
