When it comes to high-end cigars, Ashton is a world leader favored by cigar aficionados who appreciate virtuosity and craftsmanship in the fine art of cigar making. Founded in 1985 by Philadelphia based tobacconist Robert Levin, the brand offers six unique blends that are aged, cured and inspected meticulously at the famous Arturo Fuente factory in The Dominican Republic.
A lot of thought and care goes into the combination of ingredients which make up Ashton’s signature selections. Whereas the Ashton Aged Maduro brings together premium grade Dominican tobacco leaves with rough, veiny, oily and strong flavored Connecticut broadleaf wrappers, the Ashton Classic contains Dominican tobacco aged for four years wrapped in broadleaf’s smoother, more delicate cousin Connecticut shade.
The Ashton Heritage Puro Sol features a wrapper grown and developed in the central African country of Cameroon by the late tobacco pioneer Rick Meerapfel.
The flavors, which results from these deliberate and intricate brews of tobacco products, simply have to be tasted to be believed.
