Today's cigar is the Ashton Heritage Puro Sol Robusto in a 5.5x50 vitola. The Ashton Heritage Puro Sol is a joint venture between the Fuente Family and Richard Meerapfel. This cigar features a Cameroon wrapper with it's fillers and binder coming from the Dominican. With flavors of tobacco, earth, a natural sweetness from it's wrapper and a hint of spice that makes it a pleasure for anybody to smoke. From aficionados to the newest enthusiast it will not disappoint. I chose this to be today's cigar to mark the 41st anniversary of the exploding whale incident in Oregon. When an 8 ton whale carcass washed ashore in Florence, Oregon the Oregon Department of Transportation Highway Division decided to try to blow it up which resulted in an epic fail. Afterward they said if another carcass ever washed ashore they would not repeat their same mistake. Let us not forget to study history to avoid making the same mistakes twice as you never know what you might find to help you out in whatever situation you could be going through.
