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.
