Asylum Cigars’ Insidious line is growing once again, as the Insidious Habano will be making its debut at the upcoming IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

This new version uses tobacco from the Jamastran Valley in Honduras while retaining the Insidious line’s sweet tip and Honduran fillers. It will be available in four sizes, a 4 1/2 x 48, 5 x 50, 6 x 43 and 7 x 48, all coming in 25-count boxes and with single-stick pricing around $4.50.

The Insidious line debuted in the summer of 2014 with an Ecuadorian wrapped cigar over Honduran fillers and featuring a sweet tip, Asylum’s offering geared towards beginning cigar smokers. It expanded this spring with a maduro version that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over the same binder and filler.

A release date has not yet been announced for the new line.

Asylum is distributed by CLE Cigar Co. and Insidious is made at an Christian Eiroa’s El Aladino factory in Honduras.

Davidoff is the official sponsor of halfwheel's coverage of the 2015 IPCPR Convention & Trade Show.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
