New Striped Smoke From Asylum

Posted: February 10, 2014

Asylum Cigars is releasing additional sizes to its green-striped cigar blend just in time for St. Patrick's Day.

Asylum Ogre, a barber-pole style cigar made with candela leaf that made its debut last year, will now appear in four formats in time for the upcoming green-themed holiday.

The original Ogre is a 7 inch by 70 ring gauge Nicaraguan puro that features two types of wrapper leaves, a dark Corojo leaf and a green candela wrapped in a style known as a barber pole. The huge concoction retailed for $8 and was a limited release for St. Patrick's Day.

Aslyum Ogre.

Company founders Tom Lazuka and Christian Eiroa decided to use the same intertwined wrapper format and have added three sizes to the blend: 5 by 50, 6 by 60 and 6 by 80.

Prices for the new shapes will be between $6.30 and $10.20. Each cigar comes finished with a bit of tissue paper wrapping the foot and ships in boxes of 30.
