None of Ashton’s Nicaraguan offerings have come close to dethroning the legendary Ashton VSG on my personal totem pole, but the Mi Amor Reserva might be the closest. It’s not a completely different taken on Mi Amor, it’s a bit more muddled than the regular Mi Amor, but there is a feeling of a lot more flavors. The shining difference is the fruit, maple syrup and candy cane notes—all details rarely found in most cigars, but prevalent in all three samples. Price is steep, even amongst the Ashton portfolio, and that might end up being the biggest problem.

The last third is home run time….the flavors coagulate into an amalgam of all the flavors mentioned heretofore, and perfect the balance of the stick. And then it happens…Creaminess shows up. I would have liked it to have shown up earlier as it would have accented the other flavors, but it is what it is.

In summary, this is an excellent cigar that doesn’t need extensive aging in your humidor. I’ve only had this stick for a week and it shines like the 4th sun of the galaxy Fugeddaboudit. This is a perfect representation of attention to detail and the finest use of Nicaraguan leaves with a Mexican wrapper. Just brilliant.
