Ashton Virgin Sun Grown Robusto premium cigars represent the 'creme de la creme' among all the fine Ashton cigar series. Created by Carlito Fuente with the most choice, full-flavored, long-aged fillers box-pressed in oily, high-priming Ecuadorian wrappers for an incredibly rich taste and potency.
Ashton VSGs are my second favorite cigar of all time. Strong, with a somewhat sweet, savory smoke with zero harshness. Construction is excellent as is the draw. Mine have always burned very nicely. I just love the flavor. They re very nicely priced for what they are. Not cheap, but worth every penny and then some.Overall, I d say the current 91 consensus rating is quite low. Personally, 94 seems about right.
Ranks right up there with Opus X and Cohiba Robusto (the tradtional variety) at the top of my all-time favorites list. Much more potent than your average Ashton, everything about this cigar is top notch. It has a complex spicy flavor that especially delivers up front, much like a dry wine. I rated the appearance at a "9" because it tends toward streakiness in its coloration, but that's a small price to pay. One of the few cigars on the market that I'm not afraid to shell out more than 10 bucks for.
This cigar is absolutley incredible, very full bodied and peppery but smooth at the same time. The only way I can describe the flavor is like an opus x and a hemingway had a baby, it has all the flavors of an opus but has a very smooth and VERY present pepper that I can't get enough of. I will deffinitely buy more and soon at that
