Ashton VSG Torpedo Cigar Review

This 6.5×55 torpedo stick features a slick oily smooth very dark brown wrapper with minimal veins, tight invisible seams, an even slightly spongy give and peppery cedar aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with thin mild-medium smoke production showing flavors of an exceptionally smooth chocolaty tobacco with a long finish. The first third burns perfectly with great performance while flavors are complex yet mellow, still at a mild-medium. The draw shows a complexity of sweet chocolate aged tobacco and a smooth cedar, while the long finish carries mostly the cedar through to the next puff. Hitting the 1/2 way point 30 minutes in, the ash is still holding on solid, the draw is still great and the body is up a tick to a solid medium. Flavor wise it’s very similar to the first third, just morphing the general sweetness to a soft caramel only on the draw. Ending an hour in, the only change has been a little pepper zing on the finish ans a touch of strength coming in since the band point.
