The latest Thompson Cigar exclusive hails from Asylum Cigars.
Last week, the company took receipt of the Asylum Menace, a new three-size line that highlights Asylum’s big ring gauge nature.
The blend uses an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper, Honduran binder and Honduran fillers. The Menace is offered in three sizes Robusto (5 x 50, $4.40), Gordo (6 x 60, $5.13) and Grande (7 x 70, $5.93).
Despite the lower price point, Asylum says the cigars are all longfiller.
Thompson began selling the cigars on Feb. 29 with box prices of $59.95-$79.95. Each size is offered in 15-count boxes.
