2019 marks the seventh anniversary of Asylum Cigars, the partnership between Christian Eiroa and Tom Lazuka. At the 2019 IPCPR, Asylum Cigars used the occasion to celebrate the milestone with the release of the Asylum Seven.
The Asylum Seven is an ultra-premium offering that comes in two sizes, an 11/18 (the signature figurado size that came over with Eiroa when he formed C.L.E. Cigar Company (Asylum’s parent company) and a 7 x 70. In particular, the 7 x 70 is intended to offer an ultra-premium offering to cigar enthusiasts who enjoy a big ring gauge cigar.
The blend is a bit of a departure for Asylum. Many Asylum releases are Honduran or Nicaraguan puros. In the case of the Asylum Seven, it showcases both tobaccos. The blend features a Nicaraguan Habano wrapper over Honduran binder and filler.
Finally, the Asylum Seven is the first coffin release by Asylum Cigars. Each individual cigar comes packaged in a coffin. The coffins are packaged in 20-count boxes.
