All i can say is, anything Ashton is superb. Ashton may be a little pricey but I'm a firm believer that you get what you pay for. Sometimes you just gotta say, "why not?". I think that whether you're a rookie smoker or not, you'll love these.

Pretty good smoke it has a nice smooth flavor and a good draw I really enjoyed smoking this one and I'll probably buy again for myself and my other fellow cigar smoking friends, I'm positive they'll enjoy this one too
A big, mild smoke
Dingopel on 05/04/16
I'm usually not a fan of Churchills and tend to smoke shorter cigars, but this Ashton was smooth and fairly consistent. A little harsh toward the end but that may have been due to the fact I had to relight it a few times.
Nice and smooth smoke.
Big Daddy^2 on 05/04/16
The Ashton Prime Minister is a great smoke, if you have the time to smoke this one properly. I think slow easy draws, bring out the best flavors of this vitola. I think the flavor is light, but very nice and smooth.

This was the first Ashton cigar that I had ever smoked. I found it to be extremely pleasant and very consistent. It had a smooth interesting flavour and a great draw. I would recommend this cigar to anyone interested in a good smoke.
Try this one on
Jiggy_Rich on 04/27/16
If you lean towards the mellow, try this stick out. Great for a relaxing evening by the pool. I recommend only smoking two thirds of it, as the complexity of the cigar seems to go kaput from there on. But of course this is subject to individual preferences.
Trevor09n on 04/26/16
Always consistent. Impeccable draw and construction, add to be expected, but lacks just a bit in the flavor department. If you're having this with anything besides water, forget it. Sweet, creamy flavors, but easily overpowered by anything else
Mr Opportunity on 04/26/16
Ashton will forever be my favorite cigar. With this cigar i always get a perfect construction and burn based on the Churchill size. It is a mild cigar with very smooth and creamy smoke. Definitely recommend.
Ashton Prime Minister Review
Fuentes 8-5-8 on 04/10/16
This is a mild-medium cigar. Upon toasting and lighting, I thought my head was going to explode. The draw was very firm almost like trying to suck out a golf ball through a garden hose. Draw was a little bit better after ½ way into cigar. Flavor notes: creamy, mocha, cinnamon spices. I did notice a flavor change towards the end of the cigar - leather notes. I did enjoy this cigar - Ashton makes great cigars this one just wasn't my favorite. This cigar is mellow enough for the mornings with a cup of coffee and newspaper.
A humidor isn't complete without an Ashton
Kenny Stroh on 04/07/16
Where do I begin? Ashton is crowned King for a reason, amazing performance flavor and consistency is what you'll get from this cigar, mild, creamy and dreamy. A perfect morning smoke with a coffee or by itself. I always keep a few in my humidor at all times.
When in doubt, grab an Ashton
TacticalCigars207 on 04/07/16
Quite a pleasant mild stick, you can never go wrong with Ashton, one of my favorite sticks. Everything was flawless, beautiful appearance as well. Sweet wood throughout the whole stick.
Cigarbacca on 04/05/16
Ok so first "negative" if you can call it that, it was just too mild for my tastes but that's it , it did have a great flavor(it reminds one of leather and wildflowers just what I got doesn't taste like that just what comes to mind) solid smoke and great construction even draw and good long burning stick clear your schedule because this is going to take a little while, so glad it did.
Ashton what else can you say!
Rshxanadu2112 on 03/28/16
The Ashton prime minister is an excellent cigar. Anything by Ashton is always consistent. Has a good draw good construction good flavor as well as a good finish. I will always have these in my humidor.
Bgbennett228 on 03/24/16
Ashton makes one of the most consistent cigars IMO.. This is a very good cigar that you can rely on.. Not going to have an out of the world experience with it, but you can rely on it to be a good smoke each time
JamesObrien on 03/22/16
extremely well blended rich taste. The draw of this Ashton cigar from beginning to end is never disappointing. Ashton cigar is truly a smoke for anytime and anywhere and, like an old friend, never let's you down.
Ozzy on 03/21/16
Beautiful conniticut shade wrappper. This one a a few inconsistencies on the draw and burned a tad unevenly but overall would be a great after dinner smoke. I enjoyed the earthy, leathery notes. This is not an overally strong cigar but one that you can just sit back and enjoy without thinking too much.
Creamy and rich
Ozmosis on 03/20/16
This ashton cigar is a medium bodied cigar with nuances of peppery spice. Good blend with a rich golden Connecticut shade wrapper, nice rich taste. The draw of this Ashton cigar from beginning to end was spot on. Good evening smoke if you have plenty of time.
Nice smoke kind of expensive
PadronKing on 03/15/16
prelight. Lit easy, not too hard of a draw considering the length. Great construction. Had a very nice, clean, pleasent taste. I smoked this while drinking water and had a small container of ripe blackberries. This was a mild smoke that didn't leave any unwanted smells/tastes for later. I will be getting some more of these and see if they gain a little more flavor in the humidor over time. If you're looking for a high quality medium-mild smoke, this is it! An hour and a half to finish this off.
Mr. prime minister
Patrick on 03/13/16
This is a medium strength stick with an earthy flavor. I detect hints of plum and lots of leather. Smooth draw and even burn all the way to the end. If you like a medium consistent smoke then you need to get this one asap.
Snow04 on 03/12/16
Starts out with a light spice and earthy flavor. It's followed by a smooth rich creme and more earthy tones with a hint of leather. The last third stayed the same and never became overpowered by the burn. Would recommend.
Truly a "classic" smoke
Zesty on 03/06/16
The Ashton Prime Minister is truly a "classic" cigar. This is a perfect mid range go to cigar or for the beginner to the cigar world. This classic gives of a honey in the hay aroma befor it is lit. After lighting it take a little time to establish an even light. This milder smoke that is features Domican Republic aged tobacco with a gold Connecticut wrapper. The a stiff draw produces a nutty aroma of hay and honey. The final third turns into a dominant grassy taste.
Chris on 03/04/16
Ashton has a reputation of making high end quality cigars, and the Prime Minister is terrific example. A mix of top Dominican tobacco wrapped by a light and creamy Connecticut leaf come together and create one of the best mild cigars you can find. Packaged in a Cedar Chest of 25.
Mike on 02/25/16
I usually don't buy Ashton cigars due to their price but was given this stick by a friend in a swap with a Punch Bare knuckle. I almost regretted it. Too mild of a flavor for me and underwhelming taste of tobacco. Good draw and consistency. I wish my friend gave me a VSG instead. Rating. ......3.0 out of 5
Mastdog on 02/25/16
This cigar is a little thin for my taste but it was a gift so I didn't complain. I think that this is a good cigar for beginners but maybe not for people who look for more taste. Can't speak to the value as I didn't buy it.
Sticktalkcigarblog on 02/24/16
Smoked this cigar and I wasn't disappointed. For the size it packed a nice flavor and was nearly flawless on the draw. The only problem I had was it kept going out towards the end but it could have been do to the environment I was in... Overall it was decent stick not too pricey in my opinion for a good smoke
A leisurely smoke for those with a little time on their hands.
upinsmoke on 02/06/16
What can I say about this cigar that's negative? Nada! Its a nice easy smoke all in all. Upon ignition one tastes vanilla, pepper and maybe some caramel with a near salty taste on the back end. A medium bodided smoke for anyone who enjoys a cigar on a Sunday afternoon indeed.
Eljave on 02/03/16
Great sticks. You can tell Ashton is a great company that cares for their product in this cigar. Smooth light nutty tobacco taste. Mild/medium strength. Built tight and seamless with a buttery feel. I'd recommend this to my friends.
Golf Course cigar
JP on 02/01/16
Ashton is a great cigar, the draw is very good the taste is mild and when I'm smoking one on the golf course every time I put it down to take a shot and then pick it up again I don't have to keep relating my cigar, great golf course cigar
Stoney on 01/23/16
Was skeptical of this cigar at first, but after smoking it, it wasn't so bad. The consistency could be better, but all in all it was still nice to smoke. Kind of hard to light up at first, but after it hit like a champ. Would smoke another sometime.
Not my bag baby!
Smokey bones on 01/19/16
Not my bag it's VERY mild but smooth and has a good smoke output I'm more of a full flavor fan and wanted to change it up and of course was let down but I still give it high marks the overall cigar is excellent it just wasn't what I was looking for so if you like mild more power to you this is right up your alley!
Just about perfect
Itsthenoff on 01/17/16
This prime minister in Ashton Classic is an epic mild cigar. I love how flavorful and smooth it is and believe me when I tell you it will keep you captivated by the flavors in the blend. This cigar is just about perfect.
A Cigar Smoker on 01/05/16
Aside from the draw, my recent experience with the Prime Minister format was a good reminder of why I used to rely on the Ashton Classic fairly regularly. Sure, there are plenty of other Connecticut-wrapped smokes on the market, and many of them can be purchased for less. But this blend, when at its best, has a wonderfully balanced profile of traditional Connecticut flavors that’s more unique than you might expect.
Jeepfreek on 01/02/16
The prime ministers and 898s are something that I always have in my humidor. Is it my favorite smoke? No, Its a good mild smoke that I enjoy and is my go to cigars when new comers try a cigar for the first time. I think they appeal to those with a refined palette as well as beginners. All in all a good smoke but a little expensive for what it is.
Not too shabby!
Drury24 on 12/31/15
Not one of my go to cigars but I do enjoy it. Little light for me. Decent construction. Does not burn quickly. You could do a whole lot worse but there are cheaper cigars as all that are just as good in my opinion.
SteelCityteam on 12/27/15
If you like consistently smooth draw this is the smoke for you. ...from start to finish this is a constant burn with the same earthy and leather taste. The construction is good with little or no veins I would refer this smoke to anyone.
nice medium smoke
mlc on 12/25/15
Initial 3rd light earthy with nutty finish, progressing flavors second third into a more woody note with a sweet creamy finish, a mild white pepper on retrohale, final third continues with this profile. Nice smoke output, great burn, with a mild wave. Would recommend pairing with a darker roast coffee.
Good stick to share
James M. on 12/09/15
This stick is one that will impress just about anyone. And one that won't be wasted when shared. Good flavors. A little on the light side for me. Definitely a first smoke of the day cigarette. Ashton has done well making another enjoyable cigarette.
Great great smoke
Kluthc05 on 12/06/15
Tried this at my local cigar shop. Nervous that I didn't get to age it in my humidor for a few months like I prefer, but we'll worth the money spent. Great flavor, burned even, burnt my fingertips smoking the nub!
Joey on 12/05/15
Ashton cigar is a medium bodied cigar with nuances of peppery spice. The blend of 3 to 4 year old Dominican tobacco, along with its rich golden Connecticut shade wrapper, creates an extremely well blended rich taste. The draw of this Ashton cigar from beginning to end is never disappointing
Racigar on 12/05/15
If you like a mild stick this is the one. Loads of flavorful smoke, starts of creamy but about half way through hints of pepper come in. Well constructed even burning cigar, would be a great addition to your morning coffee
Amazing , see you next time bud.
SmokeyCigars on 11/29/15
One of my favorites from JR. I'm a huge Ashton fan and this cigar did not fail to satisfy my need for quality smoke. Cigar lasted forever and every pull was like siting at a cabana, drinking some rum enjoying your favorite sunset. This cigar is for lovers of all things great.
That jelly isn't jelly
Triz167 on 11/23/15
The draw and construction of this stick were fine. I personally just found it kind of bland. It could totally be me I'm moving more toward the stronger sticks. You will have to judge for yourself. Just buy a five pack to start with. You don't want to get stuck with a box you don't smoke...... Then again you can make them your "hand outs"
Usmcretgy on 11/18/15
I enjoyed this cigar. A friend offered it to me and although I was a little skeptical, as I always am with a new one, I took him up on the offer and must say I was pleased. Won't be a favorite of mine but enjoyable when offered.
feel like royalty with the Ashton prime Minster cigar
jagman0130 on 11/14/15
The Ashton prime minister cigar will distinguish you from the rest. The cigar has excellent construction a full body taste and smokes for a good 30 minutes with a medium draw feel like royalty today a but a box of Ashton prime minister cigars.

Ahulldad2 on 11/14/15
Ashton prime minister love ashton well aged tobaccco great flavor profile never want it to end the pappery finish the smoth creme notes this one is top notch you will enjoy it thoroughly price point on these and some ashton are pricey but if you can just one you will understand
Orangeco1961 on 11/09/15
a grassy taste becomes dominant. Then the stiff draw starts to get more difficult. As a result, I take more frequent puffs, and this probably contributes to the traces of stale flavors that emerge toward the end. Next time I’ll probably elect a guillotine cut rather than a V-cut to see if this improves the draw experience. Otherwise, the physical properties are very good, including a solid white ash and a very straight burn line.
Almost a 5 rating
loyalty on 11/08/15
I rated this cigar a 4 out of 5 it's a very good cigar Ashton doesn't make a bad cigar good earthy and spice taste burn well the only reason it didn't get a 5 is because Ashton has some other brands that take the perfect score that I like better
To each their own
Rich611 on 05/26/16
Very creamy, mild cigar. Ashton cigars are great overall but this is a little mold for my taste. I do recommend it for beginner smoker's or people who like a creamy, light cigar with heavy notes of vanilla and cinnamon. Personally, 6.5/10
headytopper94 on 11/06/15
purchased as a single cigar to sample in an a fuente store in ceasars vegas (worth checking out) i guess ashton is there sister company? impressed with all aspects of the cigar, enjoyed it very much while loosing all my money in the casino!
