Review Notes: First of all, what is going on with the reported $36 average price paid on here? Someone is lying. These can be had for under $10 pretty much everywhere this side of California. Moving on, it seems that every time I smoke a VSG, I boldly declare it my favorite NC line of cigars. Then I'll smoke a Padron Anni and decide that I must have been wrong with the VSG declaration. Then I smoke another VSG and claim the endorsement in favor of the PAN(M) was foolish. And so the debate in my mind continues. It had been awhile since I'd gone the VSG route, and I'd never tried the smallest size in the line, so when I had a free 30 minutes, I thought I'd try this one out, as it had been resting for about a year and a half. Little did I know this tiny smoke would last me almost 50 minutes to the nub! The burn was great despite user error on the light (the drastically uneven flare-up I subjected this cigar to may qualify as the worst light in the history of lights). The would-be canoe burn quickly corrected itself and burned evenly throughout. I'd recalled a slight sweetness with the VSGs I smoked in the past, but I didn't get that with this small size. Instead, this cigar was characterized by lots and lots of earth and leather. The smoke was almost full bodied, and packed a surpising nicotine punch to it, so smokers who haven't built up a tolerance yet should show this smoke some respect. Ultimately, I really enjoyed this cigar, but it wasn't quite what I remember from the VSG line in the past, which may have pointed me in the direction of the Padron Anniversario line once and for all!

Does this reviewer know this cigar? Yes (4) No (6)
