While Americans know of Friday the 13th, in the Spanish-speaking world the unlucky day is actually a Tuesday.
Asylum Cigars is paying tribute to the unlucky day with its new Asylum Martes 13 releases. There will be two sizes, each made entirely of six-year-old Honduran corojo tobaccos.
- Asylum Martes 13 48×4 (4 x 48) — $6.25 (Pack of 5, $31.25)
- Asylum Martes 13 54×6 (6 x 54) — $7.50 (Pack of 5, $37.50)
Both cigars are limited to 500 packs of five cigars.
Asylum explains the tradition a bit more:
The superstition around Martes 13 is taken to a different level, to the point where there is a well-known phrase to encourage one from doing anything even remotely risky during said day:
“Ni te cases ni te embarques ni de tu casa de apartes”, which roughly translates to “Don’t get married, or travel, or even go far from home”.
Although we cannot recommend being so square, we do recommend that you try these cigars. Embrace MARTES 13.
The cigars are being made in Honduras at The CLE Factory.
