Don’t be fooled by the name. Asylum is far from a shark-jump into the uber-boutique realm of handmade cigars. The man behind the blends is Christian Eiroa, the mastermind and creator of the 94-rated Camacho. Christian has returned to his roots, with a shiny new factory and delicious, full-flavored tobaccos to play with. Enter the Asylum and savor the full-flavored goodness inside.
Each Asylum cigar is medium in body and crafted using an aged blend of all Nicaraguan tobaccos. From the dark, toothy wrapper to the skillfully combined long-fillers within. This Nicaraguan puro hails from – you guessed it – Nicaraguan and booms with rich, medium to full-bodied nuances throughout the slow burn. Each cigar is rich and satisfying, with deep and chewy notes of black tobacco, coffee, and leather with a touch of spicy-sweet notes on the finish.
Asylum has already caught the eye of critics earning a 91-rating noting: "A full draw brings big flavor with this tiny cigar. Leather and coffee with hints of green apple make this smoke pleasingly tart and robust."
“I write this as I smoke it. I took a pilgrimmage to the Bethlehem super store as I'm moving to Jersey and my wife actually picked this cigar because she like the wrapper. I have to say its a wonderful smoke. Nice flavor, easy draw. I could easily make this a daily smoke. On my next trip to CI I will buy a box.”

“Great cigar. Great price. I got a 5 pack delivered on Thursday and by Sunday, they were gone. It paired perfectly with a cold stout or porter. The toro will have a permanent place in my humidor.”

“I tried my first Asylum today and I am impressed with the quality. The one I had was even a little dried out do to my current location in Afghanistan and it was still amazing. A nice Toro took me well over 2hrs to smoke was the perfect amount of draw and full flavor down to the smallest piece of nub I could hold. This one will find a home in my humidor as soon as possible.”
RS of Womelsdorf, PA
“I first got one with my grab bag from the Rocky Mtn Cigar Festival. As a noon to cigars I didn't really know how to take it, however now with some experience under my belt, the full draw even burn and leather I was hooked. I'm writing this just before buying a box. I'm no expert, maybe some day an aficionado, I know what I like and this one is amazing!”

“These have quickly risen to one of my top 5 picks. I will keep my humi stocked with these. The leather and tobacco flavors really compliment each other and go well with a Shiner Black or other dark stout.”
