Two new supersize Asylum vitolas are heading to stores soon, the latest in a line that is known for its large ring gauge offerings.

Asylum 13 80 x 8 Tray

The Asylum 13, 13 Corojo and Ogre blends will all receive the new 80 x 8 vitola as well as the Super 11/18, which measures 8 inches long and has a ring gauge of 60 x 70 x 60. It’s a larger version of the popular 11/18 size used by Camacho, the former company of CLE Cigar Co. head Christian Eiroa.
