Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Churchill
Combine Dominican filler tobacco with a gorgeous leaf of Ecuador Havana, grown by Tampa’s Oliva Tobacco Co., and the talents of Arturo Fuente cigars, and what do you get? Another high-scoring smoke from Ashton. This incarnation of the venerable Ashton brand gets its name from the sun, as the smoke is loaded with sun-grown tobaccos. It delivers a complex weaving of hickory, walnut and leather notes with a touch of smoky, earthy flavors reminiscent of your last dram of Islay Scotch. Ashton, which is owned by the Levin family, first hit the market in 1985. In its fourth decade, the marque continues to impress and deliver.
