The Ashton Aged Maduro is a dark, slightly sweet and almost black cigar which comes from the long process of naturally fermenting Connecticut broadleaf wrapper leaf, giving this cigar its flavor and smoothness. Dominican grown leaf for the filler and binder. A beautiful cigar with oily, silky Connecticut Shade grown wrappers providing a complex and distinctive character with a chocolatey and spicy sweet flavor.Ashton Aged Maduro received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "A dark and oily cigar with a good cap. The draw is a bit firm. The smoke is rich, leathery and cedary, with notes of semi-sweet chocolate. Very tasty."
