At the 2017 IPCPR Trade Show, Asylum Cigars launched a new all Honduran Corojo offering known as Medulla Oblongata. It’s a cigar that is going to be available in four sizes – each in a parejo and box-pressed offering.
Medulla Oblongata is packaged in 50-count boxes featuring 25 parejo cigars (known as Medulla) and 25 box-pressed cigars (known as Oblongata). The cigars feature a refillable option for retailers. Pricing is in the $7.00 to $9.50 range. The blend itself is described as an offshoot of the Asylum 13 Authentic Corojo.
The box-pressed offering is the first regular production box-pressed cigar by Asylum Cigars. Earlier this year a limited edition Asylum 13 Box-Pressed was released to the Tobacconist Association of America (TAA) as a part of its 2017 TAA Exclusive Series.
Medulla Oblongata refers to a part of the brain, located in the brainstem. It is responsible for autonomic (involuntary) functions ranging from vomiting to sneezing.
Asylum Cigars are distributed by C.L.E. Cigar Company.
