Quick Smoke: Ashton Virgin Sun Grown Torpedo

4 Dec 2016

Each Saturday and Sunday we’ll post a Quick Smoke: not quite a full review, just our brief verdict on a single cigar of “buy,” “hold,” or “sell.”


Ashton’s Virgin Sun Grown line used to be a staple in my humidor, but its spot has been replaced over the years. In fact, this Torpedo is the first VSG I’ve smoked in a few years. Made for Ashton by Fuente, the blend features a dark, sun-grown Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper, a rarity when it was introduced in 1999. It boasts roasted flavors with wood, pepper, and earth. Although it was considered very full-bodied when it debuted, now I’d classify it more in the medium- to full-bodied range. It’s a well-made, tasty cigar worth catching up with if you haven’t smoked one in a while.

Verdict = Buy.
