Ashton Aged Maduro Cigars

Your first impression will be: “Oh no, it must be too strong”. Or “Oh no, I only like light-coloured capes. Well, think again! Any self-respecting cigar lover must try the Ashton “Aged Maduro” at least once.

Maduro wrappers, if worked properly, produce a rich, sweet taste that is uniquely their own. Few cigar makers can afford the patience and money to process maduro wrappers properly, very slowly and naturally. They can take up to two years longer than a traditional wrapper to reach their peak quality. The capes that cover the Ashton ‘Aged Maduro’ are grown, selected and graded exclusively. They are then taken to the factory where they are once again selected and graded so that finally; the long and incredibly slow process of natural fermentation and maturation begins.

The bunches of capes leaves are placed in large piles (pilones), where they naturally eliminate unwanted ammonia. When a specific temperature is reached in the middle of the pile, it is dismantled and reassembled from the inside out and from the top down so that all the leaves ripen in the same way. This is done at least six times until their experts are satisfied that they have reached their peak quality and sugar content.

The leaves are then packed in “bales” and stored for another year to mature. Only when all these stages are completed can the maduro tobacco leaves express their full potential for their typical richness in sugar. Once they have matured, the leaves are selected again. Only fifteen percent of the leaves are kept for the manufacture of Ashton Aged Maduro. So when you choose an Ashton ‘Aged Maduro’, you are guaranteed to get the finest quality maduro tobacco that Mother Nature has to offer.
