Aged Dominican filler and a flawless Connecticut wrapper come together to create the delicious Ashton 898. Named after the number of cigars in each row in the box, this cigar has become a staple of the Ashton line. Creamy with some nutty favor, this mild cigar will have you coming back for more. Packaged as a single cigar.

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 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

nice smoke

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.

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.

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.

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.

8-9-8

Fae1nuala on 06/29/15

The 8-9-8 is a lighter body smoke and less spicy with a light pepper note. I enjoy these with scotch.

Decent but not life changing

Blues gizmo on 06/16/15

Solid but not spectacular as some of the Ashton's can be. Not a huge fan of the Churchill format for this cigar but I wouldn't turn it down.

Decent

Blackguilt on 06/13/15

Decent smoke, though I prefer the fuente brand over Ashton even though they are very similar. Still worth a try though

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.

This stick wasn't bad but it did have some construction issues. The foot had some cracks on the wrapper.

Nice

Bigdant on 06/15/15

Like the entire Ashton line I'm a true fan. It's consistent and a nice mellow smoke. Great daytime or morning stick.

qualities of greatness

Johnnyfrank100 on 06/10/15

Ashton 8-9-8 is a milder but still good buddy to hang out with. Good to the last millimeter. Ashton is absolutely known for their quality and service.

Real good one.

Ricker112 on 06/27/15

Great full bodied smoke with not too much punch. Very good burner with just that right amount of spice. I would recommend this for any smoker

898. Good

Well made, very mild

JH on 07/01/15

Really well made, like most things from Ashton. A little too mild for my tastes unfortunately. I prefer their more full-bodied options. Construction is impeccable as expected.

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.

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.

Box worthy

Itsthenoff on 08/05/15

The original Ashton Classic line is among my all time favorites. I love the favor profile and character of this cigar and keep coming back to it. I think next time I'll buy a box!
