The ultimate Ashton cigars! Ashton Virgin Sun Grown cigars are made 'Carlito's way' by Arturo Fuente with flawless, extra-aged Ecuadorian wrappers and a longer-aged blend of 6 Cuban-seed Dominican fillers, plus an extra-rich Ligero leaf for a fuller, more complex flavor. The box-pressed sizes make for a longer lasting smoke, too. These fine cigars are often out of stock, so act quickly when they're in or add them to 'Your Favorites' list so you don't miss them.

Full nicotine strength and medium-full flavors of mostly wood and nuts, however, the burn was terrible, canoeing on the last half, and then the wrapper started unraveling towards the nub.less

I have smoked cigars all over the world, but for the price and quality nothing comes close to this incredible cigar. Slow burn and mild taste is whats fantastic on this gem of a cigar. Hoping Ashton will be making this fine cigar for many years to come. less

This stogie's shape is risky because sometimes you get a bad light, or an irregular burn -- but oh man, when this stick is firing on all cylinders, you'll want to fasten your seat belt and hang on because it's a hell of a fun ride. This is the Ashton VSG tobacco and it's head-of-the class stuff, deep and complex, tasting well-aged right out of the box. After lighting, but before the full girth of the 60 ring part of this stick gets going, there's a great spicy-complex flavor that hints about what is coming. You keep herfing... the full volume of the cigar gets going... wham! A huge, lush flavor -- the best of what the VSG line has to offer -- sucker-punches you. This isn't a dark/strong flavor, it's just rich and meaty without being heavy. You keep herfing, and that richness gets more focused, like the shape of the stick -- at this point, like a torpedo of sorts -- stronger, spicier, kicks like a mule. You can smoke one of these in a half-hour and feel like you've been out relaxing for three hours. More than most sticks, the shape of this stog shows off the tobacco. Who should smoke this cigar? Not for newbies, because it could be overpowering, but for anyone who wants to experience a jolt from an amazing line of cigars: this is a damn fun cigar to smoke.less
