Ashton VSG Eclipse Tubos
I've been waiting for the Ashton VSG Eclipse Tubos for a very long time. As soon as I found it at Corona Cigars on Sand Lake Rd I knew I had to pick one up. That cigar didn't let me down. I smoked it for my victory cigar when The New Orleans Saints won the Superbowl.
The Ashton VSG Eclipse Tubos is a 6 x 52 sized toro cigar in a black tube. The VSG line is one of the most amazing cigars to be made by Arturo Fuente's Dominican factory. All of the tobacco in this cigar is at least four years old and has more ligero than most Fuente blends. The medium to full body on the Ashton VSG is apparent from the pre - light aroma and the wrapper is very oily. The Ecuadorian sun grown wrapper is grown by the Oliva family and surrounds the otherwise Dominican cigar. This stick is well constructed and draws very well. The Ashton VSG Eclipse is surprisingly consistent and has a nutty and woody start that builds up to spice and cream like flavor.
I would recommend this cigar. It's a must buy if you come across it.
