February 11, 2014 (Miami, Fla.) — The Asylum Cigar brand will be introducing a much anticipated predecessor to the “OGRE.” The Ogre is known for its unique appearance using a barber pole two wrapper system incorporating Candela and Dark Habano tobacco
Tom Lazuka and Christian Eiroa noticed as with the 80 x 6 ring gauge, that the public was clamoring for a smaller version of the Ogre, that until now was only available in a 70 x 7 ring gauge.
“What started as a St. Patrick’s day cigar has now become a sensation in our Asylum 13 brand and a product many were originally skeptical about, but pleasantly surprised upon lighting one up,” says Co-Founder Tom Lazuka.
There will be three new sizes available around St. Patrick’s Day this year which include: 50 x 5, 60 x 6, and 80 x 6 ring gauges. “We didn’t leave out our big cigar guys and decided to also throw in a bigger Ogre in the mix,” said Christian Eiroa when asked about the new sizes.
The MSRP for these new sizes will range from $6.30 – $10.20 respectively.
These three new additions to the Ogre family are sure to invite much more interest for those who fancy a smaller ring gauge. This will serve as a reminder to never judge a cigar by its Candela wrapper.
