Hello,

I have heard this is a great cigar for the price. Around $200.00 for a box of 25.

Has anybody tried these cigars? What is your opinion?

Thanks.

I've always liked Ashton as an every day type cigar. They typically are very smooth, have a good draw, and full flavor.

Thanks,

I know there are much better cigars, but I am trying to get the most bang for my buck while keeping the price at or below $10.00 per stick.

Any recommendations better than the above mentioned Ashton Maduros that fit my price range?

I appreciate the input very much.

I recommend checking out the Gurkha Ancient Warrior Maduro Torpedo. One of the best maduros I've ever smoked.

I bought a box last year that averaged out to about $7.50 a stick.

My appologies. That wasn't the right size. The one I bought was the 'El Duke' [sic]. Shorter and Fatter. 4.75x60.

Same line though and similar price.
