Asylum 13 Ogre

If you're smoking this cigar, we certainly hope Smash Mouth is on the radio, as your head is filled with thoughts of Eddie Murphy spouting off whimsical, donkey-inspired adages...

Asylum is a modernized brand under the CLE Cigars umbrella, focusing on big flavors and big-sized (for the most part) cigars. The brand is co-run by Christian Eiroa (owner of CLE) and Tom Lazuka. Of all the brand's wild packaging, sizes, and wrappers, the Ogre certainly takes the cake. It is often found in mega sizes, such as 6x80 or 7x70, though there are more normal (robusto, etc.) vitolas as well—there is now a lancero size, taking the complete opposite side of the spectrum. The mega size is complimented by a duel, barber pole-style wrapper, consisting of habano and candela (not unlike our ol' pal Shrek...) wrapper leafs.

Differentiating the cigar from Eiroa's (usual) Honduran blends, Asylum 13 Ogre uses a completely Nicaraguan puro blend.
