April Fool’s Day has long since passed, but Asylum has a cigar created for the occasion.
The Asylum April Fools is a 9 x 90 cigar that started as an April Fool’s Day joke but is now taking shape as an actual cigar. It will be a Honduran puro made at The CLE Factory in Danlí, Honduras. The company hasn’t finalized pricing for the cigar but says that it will be a limited release.
Asylum made its name as a company known for 7 x 70s at a time when most manufacturers will just starting to introduce 60 ring gauge cigars. The company also sells 80 ring gauge cigars, including an 8 x 80. While this is unlikely to be the first 9 x 90 cigar ever sold, it seems like it will be the first to be sold by a major, nationally distributed brand.
It is scheduled to debut sometime in Q3 2021.
