Ashton VSG

Description

The 94-rated beast from Ashton cigars.

Ashton VSG cigars are extremely well-made gems from the Dominican Republic that represent one of the cigar world's most prized non-Cuban cigars. The tobaccos used are exquisite, making each cigar within the line a homerun from start to finish. Taken from the tobacco plant's highest primings, the Ecuadorian sun grown wrapper offers a rich, reddish hue and spicy, chewy flavor. The 4-5 year old Dominican long-fillers are masterfully blended to promote a smooth, but eventful flavor that's hearty and robust. Together, these tobaccos combine to satisfy even the most achieved palates.

Good news! The Ashton VSG has received a 94-point rating and was ranked in the top 25 cigars of 2023, with the review stating "[This cigar] has a powerful earthy base punctuated and enhanced by a rich, precise roasted peanut quality that resonates clearly on the palate."

My go-to cigar! I like variety but whenever I pick out 20 cigars I’ll always start with five Enchantments! I love this cigar and I always have from the first time I smoked it! It has a mildly rich flavor with always a good draw with an even burn that finishes nicely. And it just feels so right holding one!

Torpedo sits perfect in the mouth. Used a v cut. Great draw, great smoke output. First third was very flavorful. I got pepper, cider, slight creaminess, slight nuttiness, hint of leather. Finish was pepper and smooth. Second got more bold but pepper dropped off. Finish was smooth leather, coffee, roasted nuts. Every now and then there was sidle tobacco sweetness. Cider was also still there. Third was just smooth still no harsh taste. Awesome smoke. Bought a five pack of these. Glad I did construction was great. Ash held up almost 2 inches at a time and even burn line throughout. I had mine in hunidor for 1 month. RH was 62-65. I dried boxed it for half the day before I smoked it.

Ashton VSG

Brandon S

                High praise and an even higher price… That’s one way that the Ashton VSG can be summed up. Another way is high quality and highly enjoyable. I’ve been saving the leftover change from my weekly Taco Bell runs and was able to scrape enough together to swing by our Super Store and pick one of these gems up and the torpedo was my vitola of choice on this particular day. This chunky 6.5”x55 box-pressed cigar features an Ecuadorian Sun Grown wrapper and Dominican-grown binder and long-fillers. The VSG or Virgin Sun Grown is made at Chateau de la Fuente in the Dominican Republic utilizing the high quality control standards that Ashton is known for;

                Ashton may be best known for their Classic series which features silky Connecticut wrappers and a smoother profile…a far departure from the VSG. The pre-light draw reveals some chocolaty nuances which are quite enjoyable. Upon sparking the cigar, the chocolaty nuances still remain a part of the underlying character of the cigar. About an inch in I’m greeted with a spiciness and an intense buttery texture which can be attributed to the perfect Sun Grown wrapper – this particular wrapper hales from a private estate in Ecuador that is owned by the Oliva Tobacco Family (not to be confused with the Oliva Cigar Family).

                Now half-way through and this full-bodied selection is coming into its own. Exhaling through the nose adds another dimension of flavor and strength that nearly causes my eyes to water! Note – almost…I’m a full-bodied, full-flavored cigar fan, and a tear might be brought to the eyes of a weaker man. But not I! Now, I should mention that the VSG isn’t available everywhere – in fact even when you can find a few, chances are they won’t be there for long. With its high ratings and limited production the VSG is one of the most sought after blends among cigar enthusiasts year after year and I know that some of you may suffer from a bout of “sticker shock” when looking to purchase a few of these. Trust me lad, it’s worth it. Go ahead and treat yourself once in a while! Personally I recommend sparking one of these up after a hearty meal comprised of some type of tasty dead animal and maybe a few vegetables – you know, to add some color to the dinner plate. And don’t forget the brown liquor to wash it all down!
