    This was in the ssutton bomb. Top notch construction as expected from DPG. For being a sandwich cigar it was rolled nice and firm. Just by looking its hard to tell its mixed filler. Impressive. Upon lighting you get that quick burst of DPG spice and it remained the whole length but was a little...

    Ashton Benchmade Churchill Size: 7.0 x 50 Tobacco: Nicaraguan puro Price: $3.25 Pepin is the Clint Eastwood of cigars: he may play the same character over and over, but it's always fun to watch. I happened to stop by the Tinder Box in Collierville on the way home from work. I was in the mood...

    Just finished my first Benchmade Churchill. Nice draw. Burn a little uneven, but self corrected. Pepper, creamy, a hint of caramel, buttery smooth, Cedar, good tobacco flavor. I'm a cheap bundle smoker. I usually smoke FDO's because of draw, burn, and consistency. Pulled the trigger on a couple...

    After some aging, I pulled out a Benchmade for a try and could hardly believe the taste. It was so similar to the Cabinet #7, could hardly tell the difference. If you like Ashton Cabinet #7, you will like the Benchmade even though it is filled with the clippings. Don Pepin makes this smoke...

    I finally picked up some Benchmade by Ashton today - Another Pepin-blended cigar. I've heard some good, but mostly bad about this stick. I'll find out.... Draw: Slightly firm the first 2", then it opened up. Burn: Great Taste: The first 1/2" was very grassy. :arghhhh: The grassy flavor...

    Ashton Benchmade by Don Pepin Robusto 5.0 x 50 Wrapper: Nic Binder: Nic Filler: Nic (mixed filler) Construction: Nice looking dark brown wrapper with few veins and a pigtail top. Prelight: The cigar felt a little on the dry side, was feeling light. It had fresh smells with a pleasant...

    Not bad...not great...but I would smoke more of these if the price stays good. It did have some good creaminess to it.

    I picked one of these up on a Don Pepin Binge. This is a short and long filler cigar blended by Pepin; I've heard that the filler is composed of JJ and San Cristobal clippings, but I can't confirm if that's true. It's handmade in Pepin's Nicaraguan factory. Here's the review: Size: 6x50...

    Has anyone used the Benchmade Life Sharp service to resharpen your knives? I'm thinking of sending mine in for a touch up, but I'm concerned because I didn't fill out the register card when I first received the knife. Its been too Iraq twice with me know and I carry it daily, I can't think of...

    Who's had them and what do you think of them? Plus, where can I find them? Serious is out of them and I can't find them through my usual vendors. If anyone has a 5er or 10er they're interesting in parting out, let me know :) Top 25 has them listed as Benchmark cigars :brick:

    I would really like to own a benchmade and i noticed alot of guys here carry the griptilians. Cashflow in my house is slow and gas is killing me. Please PM me is interested in a sell, trade, or some of both. I would prefer a strait blade without serrerations.

    Well I hit my B&M today to grab a few sticks and I saw a couple of boxes sitting in the humi room labeled NEW!. So I take a look and the label reads Benchmade. Prices: $3.00 for the Toro and $3.25 for the Churchill. The price has me as intrigued as the fact of a new brand. They looked nice as...

    Well lI'm sure some of y'all have heard me talk about these around here. If you haven't here is the deal. Pepin blended this for Ashton, they are a Cuban Sandwhich (mixed filler, in this case med and long filler). I love the Robusto size and have smoked 4 or 5 of them, each time with a perfect...

    Thanks to Wingfan13 I received several Benchmades a few days ago. Let them sit for all of two days in the humi and just had to try one today. In a nutshell..... Nicely construted with no visible flaws. Burn was even, with a nice aroma. Draw was easy from start to finish. I found the...

    So tonight I smoked me another Benchmade Robusto size. Man this cigar is freaking good! As soon as I have some room I am getting a box of these. If you haven't tired them look for them and give them a shot. I have smoked 2 different sizes but the Robusto was the best.
