Asylum to Release New Straight Jacket

Asylum to Release New Straight Jacket

Christian Eiroa and Tom Lazuka are definitely proving that their Asylum brand has earned its name with the release of a new blend that they promise is their strongest to date.

Asylum Straight Jacket is a Nicaraguan puro blended for strength that will be available this month. Rolled in the El Aladino factory owned and operated in Honduras by Fabricas Unidas, the new blend will be a smaller production than previous Asylum lines.

Straight Jacket's format will follow suit with many of the other lines produced by Asylum and will include two large-ring vitolas. In addition to 5 inches by 50 ring gauge and 6 by 54 sizes, Asylum will also produce a 6 by 60 and the log-like 7 by 70.

The cigars will come packaged in 10-count boxes, and the individual sticks are set to retail between $8.95 and $11.95.
