    Was looking for a decent maduro and a friend recommended me Ashtons. I went for the corona and bought a box. They’ve been lying in the humidor for a few months before I took a few out for the review. Smoked them with a couple of friends, we all agreed that the Ashton Maduro No. 20 is a solid, medium to strong stick.

    Appearance : [rating:4/5]
    Average appearance with a wrapper that’s quite toothy. It tastes sweet and the pre-draw was rather earthy.

    Construction : [rating:4.5/5]
    Fine construction mostly, with rare draw problems. The ash is very solid and stays for at least 1.5”. I was satisfied.

    Flavor : [rating:4/5]
    Show this cigar to your friends who think that a maduro wrapper automatically means a very strong cigar. Though the Maduro No. 20 can’t be called mild, it’s not strong, I’d qualify it as medium+. After a spicy beginning, it develops chocolate and coffee flavors, rather enjoyable. The last third is earthy and might become harsh, that’s why I’m only giving it a 4 out of 5.

    Value : [rating:3.5/5]
    I wouldn’t say that this is the best value maduro. I’m pretty sure there are better bargains out there, but this Ashton is worth the money I paid for it.

    Overall Rating : [rating:4/5]
    I don’t regret my purchase. Its chocolate flavors are amazing and it’s one of the best short smokes I’ve had in months. Try it out.

      Based on this review, I picked up an AAM 30. I have to say it looks good enough to eat! Looking forward to trying it out.

      Had one after dinner tonight. Razor sharp burn and excellent draw. Aroma was very sweet & aromatic. Flavour wise was mild with sweet woody tones. Nice cigar but not my usual cup of tea.

      This is the cigar that started me down the road to true tobacco enjoyment.
      I found the AAM (you left out Aged) line at the Venice hotel in LV, NV.
      I always keep at least one box in the smoking-dor, and one in the aging-dor. They are good OTT, but with another year or two they are really something special.
