WRAPPER: Ecuador Connecticut BINDER: Dominican Republic FILLER: Dominican Republic
The Ashton cigar is the creation of Robert Levin, a second generation tobacconist from Philadelphia whose concept for Ashton came not only from his years of experience in the industry, but also an appreciation of the world's finest cigar blends. He created Ashton cigars in 1985 and with the manufacturing expertise of the world renowned Fuente Family, Ashton cigars have become one of the most desired premium cigars in the world.
Blended exclusively for Ashton by Carlos Fuente Jr. and introduced back in 1999, these powerful, intoxicating smokes are extremely sought after and hard to find. The leaves used for the Virgin Sun Grown wrapper mature slowly by filtered sunlight and are handpicked from the higher primings at a private estate in Ecuador owned by the Oliva family. The pairing of this exquisite wrapper with a complex blend of four-to-five-year-old Dominican long-filler tobaccos maximized with extra ligero creates a rich, distinctive smoke bursting with hearty flavors.
The extra aging and fermentation creates a rich and full flavor with an incredibly smooth character. Ashton VSG is, without a doubt, one of the world’s finest cigars ever created. Add this relaxing and flavorful smoke to your well-stocked humidor to enjoy with friends or by yourself, during one of those private moments when only the company of a great cigar will do.
