4 out of 5
I love both the VSG line and the ESG line of Ashton cigars. For the price, I'm not sure you can purchase a better cigar manufactured outside of Cuba. The way I look at it is this VSG=Very Stinkin Good and ESG=Extremely Stinkin Good. VSG=4 stars and ESG=5 stars. Either way, it is a delightful stick to enjoy.
