Ashton VSG (Short Ashes)

Ashton VSG - Short Ashes - 1


Several months ago, I received a very generous care package from Aaron (@BigABoyd). The package included a pair of Opus X, three Illusione Epernay, and three Ashton VSG. Over several months I slowly savored those cigars and even managed to review the Illusione Epernay just in time to qualify for my list of Top 10 Cigars of 2009.

After a great start to the day and a few hours at Kensington Tobacconist smoking cigars with @BudPA and @Shing999, I came home to find an unexpected, non-cigar related, delivery which forced me to engage in a hellish phone conversation for nearly an hour.

Stressed out and agitated, I reached into my cooler looking for a cigar that would allow me to unwind. Having spent the better part of the week fighting a cold, I wanted to smoke something that I knew I would enjoy. I wound up coming across that old package from Aaron and opted to light up my last Ashton VSG.

Just as I hoped, the cigar helped melt away the stress and I found myself enjoying the evening. While I prefer the larger sized VSG, this smaller size was a great way to spend a little more than an hour to myself.
