Asylum’s annual anniversary cigar has begun shipping to stores.

The Asylum 8, a two-vitola limited edition, is now shipping. The blend is a Honduran puro, made at the El Aladino factory in Danlí.

  • Asylum 8 7 x 70 — $25 (Box of 20, $500)
  • Asylum 8 11/18 (6 x 48/54/48) — $20 (Box of 20, $400)

Like last year’s Asylum Seven, each cigar comes packed in coffins. The plan is to release a new cigar with a new number every year. Those releases should come in the spring, but this year’s release was delayed due to the coronavirus COVID-19 pandemic.
