This stick, like other Ashton lines, often gets overlooked by more experienced cigar smokers, but is a favorite of those just getting into smoking cigars.  I think that this has to do with the fact that they a readily available in most smoke shops.  I know that when I first started smoking I would reach to these early and often, in fact I also recommend these to everyone who has not tried them.  I went into Mr. J’s and he had a box of these out on the counter and since I never tried the size I wanted to give it a try.  

I am really glad that I reached for this smoke.  This had all of the flavors that I remember in the blend, a slight dark chocolate, coffee and pepper.  I really liked how the flavors were concentrated in this vitola.  This is a very solid fiver and would always be able to grab some real estate in my humidor.
