Reunited and it feels so good!
The anticipation has been building for over four years. The long awaited release of Ashton Symmetry is finally upon us. Collaborating once again, Ashton and Arturo Fuente have teamed up to create a scrumptious, medium-bodied morsel. Originally, delays in the project occurred when fires broke out in Fuente’s factory, but this only motivated the Fuentes more to deliver another 90+ rated masterpiece. The first line released under the Ashton name since the Estate Sun Grown hit the shelves in 2006, it also serves as the first Ashton-branded cigar to contain Nicaraguan tobacco.
A perfect Ecuadorian Habano wrapper that’s oily, smooth, and golden brown is accented by a Dominican binder and Dominican and Nicaraguan long-fillers. This well-proportioned blend offers notes of cinnamon, caramel, and a hint of white pepper on the finish. Naturally, it holds true to the smoothness and balance that Ashton is known for.
Some things in life are worth waiting for, and Ashton Symmetry most certainly is one of them. Yet another feather in Ashton’s cap.
Ashton Symmetry received Top 25 honors for 2015 (#8 overall) and a well-deserved 94-rating, noting: "Both creativity and textbook precision integrate quite elegantly here, as notes of nougat, toast, chicory and nuts blossom on the palate and stay interesting down to the robusto’s last puff."
