ASHTON HERITAGE PURO SOL ROBUSTO

ASHTON HERITAGE PURO SOL ROBUSTO


Ashton is one of the classic brands of the cigar industry. Created in the early 1980s by Robert Levin, the Dominican cigars now come in every conceivable variety, with a flavor profile built for every palate. They range from the mild and easygoing Ashton Classic to the peppery and bold Ashton VSG, with all types of flavors and strength profiles in between. Perhaps the sleeper of the storied brand is the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol. As with all cigars bearing the Ashton name, the Puro Sols are produced by the Fuente family in Santiago, Dominican Republic. They are made with toothy, thin Cameroon wrappers grown by the Meerapfel family in the jungles of western Africa. The blend is best experienced in the robusto size, a beautifully made cigar with a rich chocolate flavor, along with notes of black cherry and spice before a toasty finish.
