Selected by Cigar Aficionado as the 2020 #12 Cigar of the Year - Rated 94

Released in 1999, the Ashton Virgin Sun Grown (VSG) Sorcerer cigar represents the evolution of Ashton from a respectable Cigar Boom-era line into a premium brand capable of satisfying smokers who prefer modern, fuller-bodied blends. Blended by Carlos Fuente Jr. of Tabacalera Fuente, the cigar utilizes 4 and 5 year old Dominican tobaccos tucked into a redolent Ecuadoran wrapper hailing from a private estate held by the Oliva family and produced specifically for the VSG.

Slowly matured by filtered sunlight and cut from the higher parts of the plant, the rugged and oily wrapper yields slightly to pressure but the body is pleasantly firm. A full pre-light exam displays aromas of fresh cut grass and wood smoke and the filler serves up hints of cocoa. Upon lighting, the Ashton VSG burns cool and slow with a solid ash, and the thick smoke releases an immediate syrupy sweetness full of black cherry and leather essences. The second third of the cigar gains vanilla and oak overtones while the strength begins to increase to full-bodied, and the final third ratchets up the enjoyment by adding exotic spices to the mix. Burned fingers are almost guaranteed, as well a guaranteed spot in Cigar Aficionado’s 2020 Top 25 Cigar Of The Year by earning a 94 rating and #12 spot on the list.
