"Which one of you nuts has got any guts??"
The brainchild of Christian Eiroa and Tom Lazuka, Asylum Straight Jacket is not for the timid. This is their strongest blend to date, and boy, does it deliver on that promise. Rolled by hand at the El Aladino factory, Straight Jacket is the first limited edition blend from Asylum.
Straight Jacket is an all-Nicaraguan puro with a smooth, chocolate-y brown wrapper. But even more impressive than the wrapper is this band. Featuring an edgy, illustrated straight jacket, it really sets the tone for the cigar. A dense, intensely flavored powerhouse that's 100% consistent from start to finish. Notes of earth, pepper, cocoa, and coffee gradually reveal themselves, but in a way that means business. In this instance....it's ok to go a little loco.
Asylum Straight Jacket received a well-deserved 90-rating noting: "Packed solid with tobacco, this Churchill has a firm draw but delivers plenty of sugary sweet notes that range from malted chocolate to toasted almonds. It's balanced by notes of black pepper and oak."
