Ashton Benchmade by Don Pepin (Saturday Supplemental)

This week’s Saturday Supplemental video review is a little different than the previous ones. Instead of revisiting a cigar that I (or one of the other guys) have smoked in the past, I’m checking out a brand new cigar. Jon a.k.a. Wingfan13 promised to send me one an Ashton Benchmade Robusto if I’d do a review of it. Of course I said “heck yeah” and in short order a unexpectedly hefty supply of smokes arrived in the mail! (Apparently quite a few of his cigars had always wanted to check out Atlanta!)

Since I already had a review planned for this coming Wednesday, and I didn’t want to make such a generous gentleman wait for his review, I figured why not do it as a Saturday review? And so here we are, with a brand, spanking new cigar review. (Note: I keep saying “Benchmark” in the video, that’s just my inner geek showing. The cigar’s name is actually “Benchmade”.)
