Cigar Review – Ashton VSG Belicoso No. 1

The Ashton VSG was released in 1999 to much fanfare and was hard to find for years after their release due to their high demand. This was the first real cigar I ever smoked and it start a life long love affair with it and cigars. With such a great week, I felt like I need to smoke something special to me. That cigar is the Ashton VSG. This cigar has an Ecuadorian sun grown wrapper from the Oliva family and a binder and filler from the Fuente farm in the Dominican Republic. It took 2 years for the Levin’s and Fuente’s to come up with the perfect blend. This cigar is constantly in Cigar Aficionado’s Top 25 Cigars of the Year. How does this cigar stack up to today’s super premium cigars? What the video and find out.

Your description reads like I could have wrote it. There were two cigars that really got me into cigars in a big way: the Padron Anniversary 1964 maduro and the Ashton VSG. The VSG is a great cigar. ]

Nice review man. I have never had one of these because of the fullness :) I may have to buy a couple to give them a shot, but I think they will be out of my comfort range for a normal smoke.
