Asylum was created by the duo Kevin Baxter and Tom Lazuka. The idea behind the project was to offer enthusiasts "refuge from reality," and this fledgling company is making some outstanding strides towards this concept. The duo from Asylum decided to enlist the help of industry legend, Christian Eiroa, who was the brains behind the ‘94' rated Camacho brand.
The first Asylum cigar to be produced in Honduras, this 100% Honduro puro utilizes an authentic Corojo seed grown on the Eiroa family farm, where the growers have been working hard to perfect their tobacco output. And, that quality shows. Primary notes of natural tobacco and pepper are balanced out by some sweet fruit notes in the background. The blend is full-bodied and smooth, and stays strong throughout the experience without becoming harsh at any point.
