The Asylum and CLE brands will each be releasing their own exclusive cigars for retailers who attend next month’s 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show.

Both lines will come in the same three sizes, though the blends are different. The Asylum PCA Exclusive will be made entirely of Honduran tobacco, while CLE’s Eiroa PCA Exclusive will use a Cameroon-seed wrapper grown at the Eiroa family farms outside of Danlí, Honduras. Christian Eiroa, CLE’s founder, isn’t disclosing the binder or fillers used for the Eiroa PCA Exclusive.

  • Asylum PCA Exclusive / Eiroa PCA Exclusive 50 x 5
  • Asylum PCA Exclusive / Eiroa PCA Exclusive 11/18 (6 1/4 x 52/60)
  • Asylum PCA Exclusive / Eiroa PCA Exclusive 60 x 6

Each cigar will be sold in boxes of 20, which will also function as wooden ashtrays.

Pricing for the lines has not been announced. A representative for CLE Cigar Co. told halfwheel that the cigars will be regular production items for retailers who attend the trade show and are expected to begin shipping in the fourth quarter.

The 2021 PCA Convention & Trade Show takes place July 10-13 in Las Vegas.
