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."
Having had the Toro already, I expected good things. To my surprise it surpased all my expectations and I have moved it up in my humidor into the top five of my all time favorites.

Sometimes called a dog walker this is the perfect size when you want a really good cigar, but you haven't the time to enjoy a robusto or larger. A lot of medium to full flavor in a small package. I love this cigar.
