John ...a fixture in my rotation.
The new Asylum from Christian Eiroa, formerly of Camacho, has been a fixture in my rotation since its debut last year. This new handmade burns slow due to its quality construction and top-notch tobaccos. With notes of black tobacco, leather, and coffee, the taste is robust but clean until it transitions into a satisfyingly spicy, yet sweet finish. Medium in body, bordering on full towards the end, Asylum cigars are sure to satisfy smokers who enjoy a Nicaraguan puro with plenty of power and complexity. And despite its high-quality characteristics, the price remains very affordable.
