It had been about a year since I had last had an Anejo and I had never had a No. 55, so I was looking forward to revisiting this brand, which I have previously enjoyed. The 55 is similar in size to the Shark, which is slightly shorter and a 54 ring gauge. This cigar also came in a cedar sleeve, which isn't pictured. The tobacco used in these cigars is aged in cognac barrels for 6-8 months.

This is the robusto version of Ashton’s flagship line . . . the Estate Sun Grown. The ESG sports a celebrated wrapper grown on the Chateau de la Fuente farm in the Dominican Republic. Ashton claims that this wrapper has never been used on any other cigar it produces and that the series relies on rare tobacco to provide its rich, bold complexity. We’ll see if these claims are accurate.

While in Vegas a few weeks ago, I picked up two of these cigars. As I understand it, Casa Fuente is the only place where you can purchase a black label Forbidden. However, the cigar is the same blend as the regular Opus X banded LBMF.

Agent 10- Transmission #019

This sneaky target has been up to no good for some time now, with a rap sheet as long as my arm. 4.5/5 stars in European Cgiar Journal; a 90 rating by Cigar Aficionado. We had to take this target in. After he found out we were on his trail, he went into hiding and underwent plastic surgery - he thought we had lost him; he was wrong. Joining me on this mission is my trusty partner in Spydom, Agent G. Together we tracked the target to an inconspicuous walk-in humidor in Monona, Wisconsin. There we apprehended the target and used our ancient methods of interrogation on him.

This is a very special cigar. Not only did this blend lead to the AVO 787 but this is the only LE to have a different sized European release. The original AVO 22 was 5 7/8″ x 50 while the European release has a ring gauge of only 41. The Europeans historically prefer thinner cigars hence the change. I got my hands on one of these in a trade and couldn’t wait to smoke it.

Wow, this is one beautiful cigar. It is satiny and smooth to the touch. The cellophane is yellow from 13 years of contact with this beautiful Connecticut Shade wrapper.

The pre-light draw was easy and the cigar lit very easily from the flame of my IM Corona lighter. The flavors, as expected were mild, but numerous. I was hit with waves of cream and wood, leather and nuts, with some of the Kelner mustiness thrown in as well.

The ash burned red hot leaving the most striking white ash I have ever seen. It did not heat up the cigar too much and the burn was dead on even. The exhale is rich with creamy coffee and nuts with some leather and grass.

The Davidoff Mille 3000 burned flawlessly another example of the artistry of Henrik Kelner. I enjoyed every minute I spent with this cigar!

Overall the cigar was creamy and woody, mild but with a lot of flavor still after 13 years. It was a pleasure to get the opportunity to try it!
