Review Notes: I'll start off by saying that I've tried a couple of Ashton's VSG line and I wasn't impressed, especially considering the premium price. After reading the latest issue of Cigar Aficionado, I saw that they rated this particular smoke #8 in their top 25 of 2005. So, I deicided to give it a try and was not only surprised, but thrilled by how great this smoke was. I had to smoke about 1/2 inch for the flavor to kick in and it got better as the smoke went on. The ash was like fine white powder and the smoke was sweet, lightly spicy, with hints of cedar and citrus. This is one of the few smokes that I didn't want to end... it was that good. My only complaints is that it was tightly rolled and required some nursing to keep it burning evenly; it did require two relights. Overall, this is a grea premium smoke. At ~$11, it's not one most could afford to smoke regularly, but it'd make a great smoke for a lazy saturday or sunday afternoon.
