- If a big ring is your thing these days, then you'll want to get your hands on an Asylum 13 Sixty cigar. It's a large gauged beauty which is comprised of Nicaraguan binder, filler and Habano style wrapper. This Nicaraguan puro evokes flavors ranging from cocoa and espresso, then adds some sweet and spicy notes. An incredibly smooth and tasty stick that will last for days, or so you will wish.

Asylum cigars are a bit of a different thing in the cigar world. They’re a much newer cigar company, and the names of their vitolas have a lot more rap references in them than you would think (although ‘My uzi weighs a ton’ comes in pretty close). Interestingly, the Asylum line in question has a lot more thought and skill behind it than you would think at first blush, too.
You see, the duo behind Asylum cigars, Kevin Baxter and Tom Lazuka, decided to enlist the help of someone with a long history of making great cigars, and for doing that, they turned to Christian Eiroa. He helped them to put together a cigar that, though it looks like something that guys from Sons of Anarchy would smoke, is an extremely high-quality cigar all the same. Christian Eiroa, after all, has a lot of history of making fantastic cigars, and they haven’t stopped yet.
These cigars are Nica Puros, which means that they are cigars made entirely from the tobaccos of Nicaragua. In my opinion, Nica Puro cigars are the best puros, what with the fact that they’re extremely delicious and that they often tend to be well-rated. And so it is with the Asylum offering.
This cigar begins with a Nicaragaun Habano wrapper, moving along to flavorful Nicaraguan binders and filler, leaving you with a cigar that is deep, flavorful, and medium-full in body. Trust me when I tell you that if you’re a fan of Nicaraguan cigars, you’re going to be a fan of this smoke. And if you like things that make you look like you should be riding a Harley while smoking it, then this is definitely the cigar for you.
