The second size of the Asylum 13 BigTime Tommie is off to stores.
This weekend, Two Guys Smoke Shop of New Hampshire hosted the launch event for the Asylum 13 BigTime Tommie 6 x 60. At 6 x 60, the gordo is actually the smaller of the two sizes for the line, which is made entirely of Nicaraguan tobacco.
- Asylum 13 BigTime Tommie 60 x 6 — $9.50 (Box of 25, $237.50)
- Asylum 13 BigTime Tommie 70 x 7 — $13 (Box of 30, $390)
It’s being made in partnership with Tommie Romola, who is known for his appearance on the reality television shows “Carfellas” and “America’s Got Talent,” and has since garnered just shy of 400,000 followers on Instagram. Romola’s nephew, Sal Valentinetti, appeared on the “America’s Got Talent” and during scenes, Romola can be seen holding a cigar, and in one scene, Nick Cannon—a presenter on the show—can be seen holding an unbranded 7 x 70.
That led to Tom Lazuka, founder of Asylum Cigars—arguably, the company most known for its 70 ring gauge offerings—reaching out to Romola. The two worked together to create the Asylum 13 BigTime Tommie, which launched in a 70 ring gauge offering earlier this year.
Note: The cigars in the featured image are the 7 x 70 version.
