Had my first VSG this past weekend while out at the beach with some buddies.This cigar in my opinion was a great smoke,burned evenly through the whole time I smoked it. Great earthly smoke throughout with a minute hint of coffee.Perfect to just sit back and chill with the fellas.
If you like Punch cigars, youll love this cigar. While a Punch is a bitter-sweet cigar, that is more bitter than sweet; this cigar is a bitter-sweet cigar, that is much less bitter, while still the right amount of sweet. Im not talking sweet, like a Swisher Sweet. I mean the natural sweet flavor you get from a true, hand-rolled, non-flavored cigar. Its very mild. But unlike most mild cigars, like a Macanudo, it has a good taste to it. Its not too plain. So if your a beginner, or if you just want a mild smoke, that has a nice sweet-like taste to it, this cigar is for you.
The Ashton VSG Torpedo is a wonderful ultra premium cigar. Great looking with a perfect draw. Good earth notes with some slight citrus. Also some hidden slight cocoa and coffee that developes after a short time smoking. Well rounded and completely balanced. The Torpedo has that sneaky strength of the VSG that seems to start medium but turn to full and hangs around with you for a while afterwards. Very excellent.
Truly a great smoke. Superb construction, draw and burn with a nice firm ash. Nice earthy smoke that takes a solid hour or more to finish. Make sure you have the time to relax and enjoy!!
The VSG Torpedo has superb construction, excellent draw and consistent quality. Best after a full meal.
