Asylum Cigars is adding a Honduran puro with a corojo wrapper to its Asylum 13 line of cigars. First details of the new Asylum 13 Corojo were reported first by Cigar Aficionado.
Asylum Cigars launched in 2012.
The company was founded by Kevin Baxter and Tom Lazuka. The duo is
partnering with Christian Eiroa’s Fabricas Unidas who is handling

Eiroa’s CLE brand also has a corojo-seed Honduran puro, the CLE Corojo. The CLE Corojo finished as our #22 Cigar of the Year for 2012.
