    Definitely some good points here Matt. The Wizard is probably my least favorite of all the VSGs for many of the reasons you said. Good work!

    Update: My Review of the Ashton VSG Tres Mystique (4 3/8 x 44)

    This is a pretty little cigar. I tend to like bigger vitolas but I heard a lot of good things about this particular VSG. It has a dark brown toothy wrapper and looks very well put together. There were no hard or soft spots. The cap looked a little puckered. The cut was perfect and the filler looked nicely bunched, and no rib veins were visible. The pre light draw was nice with only a little resistance. I took my time lighting this cigar and it was worth it. It lit very nicely. The initial puffs delivered a very spicy flavor that had little too much bite in my opinion. After the first few puffs the spiciness gave way to much more enjoyable flavors. The flavors were still very strong, but I detected a lot of leather and wood while smoking this cigar. For a little cigar this thing gave off a lot of smoke. The burn was perfect until the end when it started to canoe a bit on me. I was able to correct it and I proceeded to smoke it to the nub. It was a strong cigar and it gave me a nice “cigar buzz” afterward. I had to be careful getting up off the couch.

    Overall, this was a really nice smoke. Although this cigar is something I’d like to smoke a lot of, it’s a bit pricey, so it’s not something I’m likely to have very often, but it makes for a good special occasion smoke.

    My Review of the Ashton VSG Wizard

    I punched the cigar and the pre-light draw was nice and easy. The burn was a little crooked at first, but evened out soon after. The cigar tasted like it had aged nicely, very smooth with Dutch cocoa and leather notes.

    The cigar was not that spicy, it was milder than its smaller cousins, but this I think is a function of the extra-large ring gauge.

    As I smoke this, I think back a few years and remember how this was one of the strongest lines out there at the time. This is now just a nice medium to full bodied cigar.

    The age has really helped the cigar, not overly complex just good flavors like mild black coffee and licorice with a subtle sweet core. I enjoyed this cigar a lot!
