Ashton VSG Cigar Review via Brooks van Norman

October 26, 2008 · Posted in Cigar Review 

I just smoked an Ashton cigar a couple of days ago and it was awesome. And here I am, looking around the web and I come across this guy from Canada who has just smoked one.

Usually, I would just read it and go on but what is awesome about Brooks (besides his first name being the same as my middle name) is that he includes a great video where he talks about the cigar. It’s very funny.

Well, here’s a little of what he has to say about the cigar and take a look at his site to see his video. It’s worth the two-and-a-half minutes it takes to watch it.

If you like cigars, you’re gonna love this product. It’s been a while since I’ve reviewed a cigar here on the blog. My local cigar shop told me this was the best product they had in the store for the money. At $22.00 CDN, how could I say no when looking at others in the $70+ range, which I simply can’t justify.

Here is a partially smoked Ashton VSG.

This was the Robusto version of the VSG – with a 50 ring size and five and half inches long.

For the money, this has to be the best cigar that I’ve enjoyed yet. It’s as good or better than the Exodus and the La Flor. You’re going to get cocoa and pepper on the palate. It’s not a mild cigar, but it doesn’t have edge either. It’s smooth.
