The American Robert Levin founded the Ashton brand in 1985. They have been hand-rolled totalmente a mano (completely by hand) by skilled torcedores (rollers) in the globally renowned Arturo Fuente factory in the Dominican Republic since then.
The finest and richest tobaccos from the Dominican Republic are used for the filler and binder, giving the Ashton Cabinet its unique complexity. These premium cigars are rounded off with a silky yet oily Connecticut Shade wrapper. In terms of taste, the Cabinet cigars surpass the Classic and Maduro lines. They offer a full and complex flavor profile, achieved by the use of 6 (!) different tobaccos and their years of aging, resulting in a perfectly rounded and balanced experience.
The name "Ashton" was derived from the famous pipe maker William Ashton Taylor, who crafts excellent pipes in England. It was only natural to bestow this illustrious name, which was already successfully used for a tobacco brand, on top-notch cigars in the tobacco industry. Hence, the name Ashton guarantees perfect quality in all aspects of the tobacco world.
In addition to the Cabinet series, we also offer the Maduro, VSG, ESG, and Classic lines from this brand. Here you will find an overview of all Ashton cigars.
