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.

The cigars are rolled at Eiroa’s El Aladino factory in Honduras. Asylum is distributed by CLE Cigar Co.
