|Asylum Super 11/18 Tray|
Asylum Cigars have announced two new frontmarks that will added to each of the three Asylum 13 lines. The Asylum brand under the CLE Cigar Company umbrella become very well known for its large ring gauge cigars and the two new sizes keep true to that reputation. Asylum has announced an 8 x 80 parejo and a Super 11/18 (a variation of CLE founder Christian Eiroa’s signature 11/18 size) will be added to the Asylum 13, the Asylum 13 Authentic Corojo and Asylum 13 Ogre lines. These line extensions will make their debut later this month.
According to the company, the 8 x 80 and Super 11/18 line extensions will initially be sold in bundles with trays also available. Plans are for these sizes to be available in 21 count boxes this May.

Two years ago, Asylum introduced a 6 x 80 cigar to its Asylum 13 line. This size was later added to the Asylum 13 Corojo and Asylum 13 Ogre lines. Earlier this year, Casa Fernandez introduced an 8 x 80 cigar called the JFR Lunatic. While the Lunatic is a belicoso, the Asylum 8 x 80 cigars are parejos.
The pricing for the 8 x 80 is $10.00 for both the Asylum 13 and Asylum 13 Authentic Corojo lines while it is $11.00 for the Ogre.

The 11/18 is a size that can be traced back to Eiroa’s days at Camacho Cigars. It is a figuardo shape named for the birth date of Eiroa’s mother. The 11/18 came over to the CLE brands. It is a figuardo that is thicker in the middle and tapered toward the ends. The cigar is typically is a 6 x 48/54/48-ish size. The new Super 11/18 is a new size measuring 8 x 60/70/60.
The pricing for the Super 11/18 is $8.00 for both the Asylum 13 and Asylum 13 Authentic Corojo lines while it is $9.00 for the Ogre.
