Review Notes: No. 7 in Cigar Aficionado's top 25 cigars of 2004. It's enormous with the characteristic rugged, streaky, and oily wrapper. It may be too big for its own good: the draw is fine but there were a few minor burn inconsistencies that needed retouching and bits of wrapper tended to peel off; not the typical top-notch Ashton construction, but still very smokable. It's a tasty smoke with a nice mix of black coffee, leather, and dark cherry flavors. Curiously, it isn't as strong as the smaller ring VSGs, but it does have more balance and elegance. A small buzz does result afterwards as it's nearly a 2-hour smoke. An excellent value at around the MSRP; it's a premium cigar, and there's plenty of it.
