The Asylum 13 Ogre is one of those cigars that will grab your attention right from the beginning, whether you first lay eyes on it at your favorite local humidor or you see it when you’re perusing your favorite internet cigar store. What catches your eye about it? Well, that’s not hard to understand; the cigar is a barber pole, one that has two colors of tobacco wrapper to it, wrapping around it down the length. If nothing else, the cigar looks amazing, and the amount of time that must be spent to give each one that look cannot be said to be negligible, to be sure.
Asylum cigars are made in conjunction with the Eiroas, some of the better known cigar makers on the market these days. They make a lot of strange cigars, ones that you wouldn’t normally think would go well, but they somehow make the blends work, and the Asylum line is no exception. Their work also leads to some visually striking cigars, such as the Ogre.
But how does it taste? Well, with a Habano and Candela wrapper leaf, this Nicaraguan Puro cigar is a great buy, and a very affordable one for what you’re getting. It is smooth, and filled with complex flavors that you will be glad to taste, and have even more fun deciphering.
If you’re looking for a great new cigar to try, one that is different from what you’ve had before, you owe it to yourself to try the Ogre.
