Cigar of The Week : Ashton Symmetry

Each puff full of savory spiced oak and cream coursing through your receptors while you ride in a sea of burgundy, leather and minimal flair in your 1970 GS 455. A well done marriage of smooth and strong creates a perfect contradiction to the Ashton line (without tasting generic) and to me it’s that which makes the Symmetry worth a go. Innaugurating tobacco from 2 very well known estates, Villa Gonzales and Arturo Fuente’s Un Bien Vecino in Esteli, Nicaragua and Chateau de la Fuente in the Dominican Republic. It was a quest by Ashton and A. Fuente masterblender ‘Carlito’ Fuente to cure the curiousity and waiting of Ashton goers. But the big question was what kind of wrapper do we use? Well the thought of an Equadorian Habano wrapper filled the tobacco blending gods’ minds and stuck there upon inception, developing a nice brown and slight red hued wrapper embracing refinement and enginuity. The Ashton Symmetry is rated a 90+ also but who cares, it’s the ride and craftsmanship that matter here plus, you have the luxury of 5 different sizes to accompany your scenario

Cigar of the Week : Davidoff Colorado Claro

Origin: Dominican Republic
Wrapper: Ecuadorian Colorado Claro
Binder: Dominican Republic
Filler: Dominican Republic
Strength: Medium
Age: 2 years.
The worldwide prestigious cigar manufacturer Davidoff has re-written a chapter in the book of wealthy smokes. A more robust, yet elegant cigar, the Davidoff Colorado Claro. The Colorado Claro has a rich reddish-brown sun-grown Ecuadorian Colorado wrapper which embraces a more bold Davidoff than we’re used to, unless of course you’re hooked on the Millennium blend. It sports a 2 white bands one with your standard Davidoff band and the other right below it titled ‘Colorado Claro’, but no foot band like Davidoff has done with the more recent line of stogies the Puro D’oro. Wipe your palette clean about what you know from the Davidoff brand, and smoke this cigar with an open mind and a water-rinsed mouth, this smoke offers the complexity and signature quality you would expect but is unique and most certainly worth a try. You have a variety of sizes to suit the moment you wish to unite with this cigar, the Aniversario No. 3 (6×50) with an enjoyment time of :50 or so minutes, the Double “R” (7 1/2×50) with an enjoyment time of :90 minutes, the Short Perfecto (4 7/8×52) with an enjoyment time of :25 minutes, the Robusto Specal “R” (4 7/8×50) with an enjoyment time of :45 minutes, and the last size the Special “T” torpedo (6×52) with an enjoyment time of :50 minutes. One of the best things you could do with a cigar like this is let it age and develop, to pick up a box I’ll direct you to the website and provide the opportunity.
