Nice medium bodied cigar with excellent flavor profile. Don’t mistake its mildness for lack of character; super smooth, balanced, with enough complexity to get you thinking. The draw is on the tighter side but I personally enjoy that. This is a great cigar for a beginner because it is smooth like butter. It is also a great cigar for the aficionado due to its excellent blend, construction, and consistency.

"These Ashton s are lousy cigars!"
I am extremely disappointed in the Ashton Classic Prime Minister. Of the approximately 15 cigars I have smoked out of the box of 25 about 3 have been good. The balance of say 12 have had a hard draw, with hard parts within the cigar that burn unevenly and very hot. I have disposed of these 12 for what I would call poor quality, due to this condition at less than half smoked. I have purchased from Famous Smoke Shop many many

"Its an excellent mild smoke but..."
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.

I think these are over priced cigars. I rather spend my money on a box of padrons. I like the darker cigars better. These are an ok smoke if your a beginner but I would never buy a box of these. Everyones different though, but I wouldn't carry these in my humidor, if I do they will just age for a while and maybe I'll smoke a few here and there. Oh, wait! I have 10 of them oh my what to do what to.
