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
Nice mild stick
Amon on 07/25/16
Great mild smoke when I have more time on my hands, great for golfing too. Gave a couple out to some buddies a couple weeks ago and they loved them. I only wish there was a little bit more complexity to them. They have tended to be dry one dimensional to me. I'll stick to more full bodied cigars. Great construction though

Personally, I would elect a different candidate to name prime minister. But, there is a time and place for every stogie in my eyes. If you have a friend you don't really like and need to give a cigar up, this is one that I could freely pass on to an unsuspecting noob.

Newbie here. I used to smoke cigars on occasion. As I began to enjoy them more and more, I started to buy them at my local shop as they sell buy 3 get 1 free and thought it was a good deal. But found that by the time I made my way to the 4th cigar. They were often dry, burned quickly and hot. Just recently got my first humidor through JR. The ultimate PlayBoy package with the Montecristo humidor, Monte and Cohiba cigars. Slong with my purchase, I ordered a variety of samplers to fill my new box. I now have a great assortment of cigars for my collection. Over the past few days, I have been seasoning my humidor and calibrating my HygroSet and analog Hygrometer. While my new cigars are kept safe tucked away in a ziplock with some 69% Bovedas. Was going to wait to smoke any until I could transfer them to the humidor and let em rest a week or so. Me being impatient and egar for a good smoke, I decided to dip into the new stash and enjoy this beatutiful day. I was between this Gar and my Ashton Symmetry. I went for the Prime Minister and was glad I did. It was a very enjoyable cigar. I figured I'd save the Symmetry for another occasion. But if its half as good as this or several other Ashtons I have smoked, I am sure I won't be disappointed. Thanks JR!!
A great cigar for beginners

Somewhat pricey, but good for when you are in the mood for something light and mellow, great when paired with a strong drink. The high quality price tag and easy, creamy mellowness make it a great gift for a friend just getting into cigars.
Matt8791 on 06/26/16
I have not ever been one to really like to smoke cigars any longer than 6 inches but I have to say that this cigar I would not mind smoking over and over again! I loved the nutty and the hints of spice throughout this cigar, I will be ensuring I get more of these really soon
I Wanted more
Cowboyup5606 on 06/26/16
I was gifted this Ashton from a buddy of mine, who smokes them all the time. It wasn't a bad stick, but there was something missing. I wanted more out of it. Draw was a little tighter than I wanted it. That may have been the issue for me, I would smoke it again, but wouldn't pay for it.
Very nice with a high price
nolagizmo on 06/25/16
These guys always deliver. Awesome cigar but you get what you pay for... prepare for a journey you won't forget and store the extras deep in your humidor so when you pull one out you get a pleasant reminder
Good mild smoke
Teresa H. on 06/17/16
It's been a while since I've smoked a mild Ashton. It is a good mild cigar. I'm into the VSG now. If you are a fan of mild cigars, this is a good choice. You can count on an Ashton to be the same every timem I did find the draw a bit hard. Had to use a poker.
Sypher704 on 06/01/16
This Ashton is too light for my taste. I prefer esg if given the choice, I just don't like the taste of mild med smokes, but there is no questioning the consistency in construction and this is surely a hit for Ashton fans seeking a lighter smoke.
Solid 3.5 to 4 star stick
phi2100gaa on 05/27/16
Pretty solid cigar. Draw is usually good. I have had a few minor draw issues but nothing terrible. The flavors are pretty consistent from stick to stick; however, I tend to find them somewhat muted and understated.
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
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.
walterhund on 04/30/16
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.
Nice mild smoke.
Pinkrton22 on 07/28/16
This is a nice mild summertime smoke. The wrapper is very thin and can split a bit when smoking, but the construction, draw, burn, and smoke production never seem to suffer. Not my favorite Ashton, but good.
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.
