Tasting Note

There are 12 sizes in Ashton’s Virgin Sun Grown line, and every year we smoke through a good portion of the portfolio, but in 2020, it was the Sorcerer that enchanted us the most. It’s rolled in a Churchill size and is made by the Fuentes in the Dominican Republic. The dark, oily Sumatra-seed wrapper from Ecuador enrobes a heady blend of aged Dominican tobacco. When VSG came out in 1999, it was one of the more full-bodied cigars on the market. Today, the full-bodied field is a lot more crowded, but the VSG remains remarkable for its rich character and focused flavor, especially the Sorcerer, which casts a charming spell of dark chocolate, black cherry and ground pepper from first puff to last.
