Yet another top rated cigar for Ashton by Cigar Aficionado! This one came in at number 13 for 2011!
For twenty years, Ashton has worked tirelessly to produce one of the
highest quality, most consistent cigars that are sold anywhere. To
celebrate twenty consecutive years of increased sales and overall
growth, Robert Levin and Carlos Fuente Jr. have teamed up to create the
Ashton Estate Sun Grown, or ESG for short. The ESG uses a unique
Dominican wrapper grown on the Chateau de la Fuente farm in the
Dominican Republic. This wrapper has never been used on any other cigar.
The blend is the creation of Carlos Fuente Jr. who is a master blender
and has created the most sought after cigars in the world. With ESG the
bar has been raised once again.
Every year, Ashton will introduce one
size of Ashton ESG for the next five years. In its debut year, a 6.75 x
49 size was introduced. In the second year a 5.25 x 52 has been added
along with the continued limited production of the first year. And so it
will continue for three more years until 2010. From then on, all five
sizes will be produced annually and made available to celebrate the 25th
Anniversary of Ashton. The rare tobaccos used in this spectacular cigar
dictate that only extremely limited quantities can be produced.
the unbelievably gorgeous packaging to the rich, bold complexity of the
cigar itself, the Ashton Estate Sun Grown will take its place as a
legendary cigar. Such a powerful statement can only be made with the
greatest confidence. And that confidence comes from years of growing and
blending the finest tobaccos in the world. To experience an Ashton
Estate Sun Grown is a pleasure beyond expectation.
