Ashton VSG Sorcerer

Single Ashton VSG Sorcerer cigar laid in an orange leaf shaped ashtray

The Ashton Virgin Sun Grown (VSG) was released at the tail end of the cigar boom in 1999. Ever since it has received and maintained a good reputation amongst all types of consumers. It has proven its worth as a super-premium cigar with a 94-point rating.

The wrapper is a Sumatra seed grown in a private estate of Ecuador where it is very cloudy. These clouds provide shade and allow only gentle exposure to the sunlight. Once the wrapper is grown, it is fermented by the Fuente family in the Dominican Republic to yield oils and a dark sheen.

Then it is adhered to Dominican binder and filler tobaccos that have been aged 4-5 years. This sort of care and execution of aged tobaccos can only be achieved by the Fuentes. The Sorcerer is one of the 3 sizes carried by LM Cigars which measures 7 x 49. It is a longer cigar but a very good representation of the blend. Construction is a no-brainer since it is made at Tabacalera A. Fuente it is flawless. You can expect every one of the 25 cigars in the box to be consistent and perfect.

The flavor is unique and refined. A rich sweetness encases hints of espresso bean, earth, leather, and a milder spice. The entire 1 ½ hour of smoke time was extremely pleasurable. I found both strength and flavor to be medium to full-bodied.  If you are looking for a super-premium luxury cigar that has loads of natural sweetness and flavor, you have found the one! The Ashton VSG Sorcerer a great cigar to keep stashed in the humidor for when you’re feeling special or celebrating an occasion.
