ashton 898

whitey1 on 06/05/15

This ashton 898 was one of the first ashton on the market. And it's still one of the best Dominican made cigars around

Ashton 858

SteveMcGrath on 06/20/15

Your typical Ashton classic blend from what I remember on this little ditty. Flavorful, however nothing spicy really comes to the forfeit in the pallets. Good milder smoke for those mornings where you want something with your coffee.

night out

cconk on 06/23/15

One of my favorites. Ashtons can be a bit pricey so I don't get to enjoy them as much as I would like. But for a special occassion I pull one of these out of the ole humidor.

Just ok

Salad ass on 06/24/15

Randomly picked this up to try something new. Not overly impressed by any standpoint. I could've just gotten a bad one but it smoked more quickly than I would've thought.

red1 on 06/26/15

Ashton's always have a rich flavor to them and the 8-9-8 is the same. It had a great aroma and burns perfectly.

Enjoyed this Cigar

Dmcigar32174 on 06/26/15

Great cigar for smokers who enjoy a nice mild flavor. I got this cigar in a sampler pack a little while back as a gift. Not my usual purchase but would definitely smoke one Again.

Girth matters

W_King_7 on 07/22/15

One of the better cigars I've had. I love the smaller ring gague providing a slightly shorter smoke than other cigars, but still delivering cool smoke compared to a short gat cigar of comparable burn time.

Ashton

jimmyjimjames on 06/22/15

What can you say... It's an Ashton. It's great. I prefer a bit darker wrapper, but this one did not disappoint. Nice draw, even burn. Smooth smoke. Not too spicy, but delicious burn.

Decent but not life changing

Blues gizmo on 06/16/15

This Ashton 898 is the go to when I need a milder smoke but still want the favors heavier Madurese give. These are nice. Other Ashton's seem a little too expensive for what they give u.

Treat yourself

Lemon on 09/30/15

My only issue with ashton is how expensive they are. They're worth the money, but it's just tough to part with 12 dollars for a smoke. I've enjoyed everyone I've had. Treat yourself.

Not blown away, but not bad

Alex on 07/26/15

I wasn't blown away, but I did enjoy it. Great draw, and pretty good flavors. Hay and earth are what I got throughout most of the stick, which aren't my kind of thing usually. I paired it with a great book, so that helped. Nothing I'd buy a 5-pack of but I'll probably buy another and give it another shot some day.

Craftsmanship

Eljave35 on 07/18/15

Anything Ashton makes is always top notch. The craftsmanship is solid and this particular stick proves it. If you're looking for a smooth light smoke with zero let down, this is where you stop looking.
