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.

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.

The Partagas Serie D No. 4 is known as one of the best (if not the best) Robustos in the world. I have smoked quite a few of these, but decided to put up a review just now. Let me tell you why this is the best-selling cigar in France.

Arganese Connecticut Chairman is a decent Torpedo. I have smoked cigars that were twice more expensive, yet provided the same satisfaction (for example, Vegas Robaina Unicos).

The Trinidad Reyes is not one of your straight out of the box type cigars. These require a bit of ageing first. However, with a couple of weeks in the Humidor, I found this to be an excellent smoke, meaty and wonderful.

Definitely a smoke for the high-profile cigar smoker. You won't even need to put this one in your humidor, though doing so could only improve it. I was leery of it as it was developed only a couple of decades ago, being more oriented towards the tried and true old school cigars. However, for the most part, I was quite pleased with the Ashton Cabinet Series Belicoso.
