C.L.E. Cigar Company have announced the release of the Asylum Sensorium. The cigar is Honduran puro featuring multiyear aged tobacco including the Eiroa family’s signature Authentic Corojo. C.L.E. states that will also incorporate first-generation Cuban-seed Piñareno tobacco.
Christian Eiroa, President of C.L.E. Cigar Company stated: “The Asylum brand of cigars allows us to keep pushing [the] boundaries. This is what the consumer expects from us. Such was the case this time, with the Asylum Sensorium. We used some first-generation Piñareno seed from Cuba, my father grew in Jamastran. He has had this seed for decades, but had not grown it since 1979, when blue mold swept through Honduras in 1977. Any attempts to grow it in Honduras have yielded continuous losses of 25 – 40% on the field, due to its susceptibility to everything.
Piñareno is truly the tastiest tobacco I have ever tasted, and I feel it is worth the sacrifice.
One could say that I am “all in” with the Piñareno tobacco and the Sensorium will be the first time someone gets to try it. This tobacco is so special to me that we are only offering it to those with whom we can sit down and explain the cigar to. This means that both Tom and I will be doing a lot of traveling as we introduce this new tobacco.”
The cigar is a Honduran puro with Authentic Corojo and the original Piñareno tobacco in the filler. The Asylum Sensorium comes in twenty count boxes. Each cigar sits in its own coffin.
Tom Lazuka, C.L.E. Cigars VP of Sales, and co-founder of Asylum said,” Christian and I are especially proud of this blend. The Asylum Sensorium was a long time in the making, we are confident that this blend will bring something new to the table for the Asylum Cigar smoker.”
Asen 18: 11/18 with an MSRP of $50 per cigars, $1000 per box.
Asen 60: 60/6 with an MSRP of $60 per cigar, $1200 per box.
