Asylum 50x6 is a true gem of a cigar. Though it rarely appears in today’s headlines, Asylum is actually an extremely highly-regarded stick made for true connoisseurs. Built down in Honduras under the CLE umbrella, Asylum was one of the first of powerhouse master Christian Eiroa’s projects after leaving Camacho. It truly gave him a chance to prove himself with his own label and show the cigar world just how skilled he really is when it comes to blending full-bodied, immensely balanced sticks. Asylum, also known as Asylum Premium, boasts a rich blend of Nicaraguan filler and binder tobacco finished with a dark Nicaraguan wrapper leaf. This blend steps outside the box, so to speak, for Eiroa, a man who has been used to using top-quality Honduran tobacco for the bulk of his career. However, considering that soon after its release Asylum earned numerous 90+ ratings, the highest being 94, along with a spot on the 2013 Cigar Aficionado Top 25, it’s safe to say that he feels right at home using spicy Nicaraguan tobacco.


Dark, oily, masterfully constructed, and beautiful in all aspects, Asylum boasts simple packaging with the trademark Asylum skull plastered in the center of the band. Though not as intense as we have come to expect for a cigar crafted by Christian Eiroa, Asylum is definitely on the heavy side of medium-full, but beautifully balanced and never overpowering. As Asylum always offers an easy draw, one can expect heavy amounts of thick, blue smoke, widely proclaiming everything that makes Asylum so amazing. Smooth notes of coffee and chocolate compliment the initial cedar blast and earthy core, while a plethora of Nicaraguan spice dances across the palate throughout. The finish is clean and smooth, and overall the cigar sports just enough complexity to keep things interesting. The 50x6 size is a classic toro, coming in at 6” x 50.


Asylum, like the majority of the cigars offered by the CLE Company, is aimed at a more experienced audience. Such rich, beautifully blended cigar excellence should be appreciated for what it is, and that’s where the seasoned connoisseur comes in. Asylum, in its medium-full-bodied glory, pairs well with bourbon, scotch, or port wine, and, like most of the powerful offerings from Christian Eiroa, is best enjoyed after a good meal. Comparable, yet tamer cigars may include its Asylum cousins: Asylum 13, Asylum 13 Corojo, and Asylum Insidious. At first thought, the name seems out of place for such an incredible smoke, but things easily come into perspective when one considers how hardcore cigar enthusiasts have gone absolutely crazy over Asylum 50x6 cigars.
