Asylum Cigars was nestled right in the heart of the new CLE booth, with the display towering high above our heads with their logo easily viewable from quite a distance.

While the previous CLE booth was a very pretty, enclosed, white-walled area, the constant throng of retailers made it hard to get around. This new open concept booth proved to be much easier to maneuver, allowing the extra traffic to spill into the aisles.

Medulla Oblongata
The Medulla Oblongata features a similar blend to the Asylum 13 Corojo, it uses higher primings giving it a different profile. While there are only three sizes, each box of 50 will come with 25 round parejos and 25 box press cigars, meaning there are technically six vitolas.

  • Wrapper: Honduran Corojo
  • Binder: Honduras
  • Filler: Honduras
  • 50×5 (5 x 50) – $7 (Boxes of 50, $350)
  • 52 x 6 (6 x 52) – $8.25 (Boxes of 50, $412.50)
  • 80 x 6 (6 x 80) – $9.50 (Boxes of 50, $475)

Launch Date: July 2017

I have been smoking cigars since 2005 and reviewing them as a hobby since 2010. Initially, I started out small with a 50-count humidor and only smoking one or two cigars a month. Not knowing anybody else that smoked cigars, it was only an occasional hobby that I took part in. In March of 2010, I joined Nublive and Cigar Asylum, connecting me with many people who also shared an interest in cigars. Reading what they had to say about brands I had never heard of, I quickly immersed myself in the boutique brands of the industry and it was then that cigars transformed from a hobby into a passion.
