Ashton's crown jewel; '94' rated.
One of the very best of all-time, Ashton VSG is a bucket list blend. Released to the public in the late 1990's, Ashton's first truly full-bodied release was one of the only cigar lines to feature a box-press across all sizes. Short for Virgin Sun Grown, VSG sees its leathery Ecuador Sun Grown wrapper around the finest Dominican leaf Chateau de la Fuente has to offer. Additional aging and fermentation allows for the thick leaves found in this redolent recipe to really shine, as you'll find the depth of flavor develops shortly after lighting, with a cool, slow burn and deliberate draw ideal for a cigar of this strength. Despite its undeniable strength, somehow it remains smooth from start to finish. Praised by industry critics since its inception, Ashton VSG, despite increasingly crowded competition, continues to be among the dozen or so most sought-after cigars 'round the globe.
Complex in character with a heavy, spicy finish, the brilliantly nuanced VSG is a connoisseur’s cigar. The intricacies and aromas swirled in its thick smoke are multi-dimensional, making this blend a true treat for even the most demanding enthusiast. The peppery and peaty notes are so unique it is one of the few cigars we've been able to positively identify in blind tastings. Ashton VSG is, without a doubt, one of the world’s finest full-bodied blends.
