    Nice review! I am just worried about the power with these puppies! Sounds like a nice smoke, but i hate to spend $10 and find out my wussy ass can only make it 1/3 or the way ;)

    Very nice review! One of my favorite cigars. Actually, along with the Padron 1964, the cigar that got me hooked on premium smokes. This is probably my favorite size in the line as well.

    Spot on review of this particular VSG vitola – arguably one of the best non-cuban blends in the world today.

    Two years ago, I was gifted the cigar world’s equivalent of winning the mini lotto when a very good friend gave me a box of Ashton VSG Wizards. With it’s huge ring gauge, beautiful dark wrapper and mega flavor profile (not to mention that a box of Wizards is a 37 COUNT box), I can only imagine what they will be like when I finally open the box. The singles that I have are reserved for when I have a solid uninterrupted 2 hours at my lounge (The Oliva Lounge @ The Cigary in Wilmette, IL). What do you think a Panatella would be like in this blend?

    Thanks for all of your great reviews!

    You hit the nail on the head with this review. I just finished another VSG and in the last 2 years I think this is the stick that has been the most consistant and enjoyed on a regular basis.

    I’ve been sitting on a few VSG Wizards for several months, waiting for the right occasion–what libation would you recommend to pair with the VSG?

    I like pairing it with a single malt, but not a very peaty one. Dalmore 12 y.o, Talisker 10… Your mileage may vary :)

    First VSG I ever smoked was an Illusion. It was a particularly dark wrappered example. One of the most memorable smokes in my 37 years of smoking Cigars. Wonderfully rich and chewy smoke. That wrapper is something really special. Sometimes I take a longer butt, like one that you had to unfortunately put down half way through, and transfer the wrapper to something like a LFD Ligero. Makes for an outstanding smoke.
