This has been a rough year in the White Household. With Christmas right around the corner, I’ve been sticking to the deal sights to try and stretch by cigar budget as much as possible. Doing this doesn’t provide much variety but I’ve been able to stock my humidor with some pretty good buys.
A little while back I was pleasantly surprised by the Asylum Premium and have since been interested in trying the other Asylum offerings. When the Asylum 13 Sixty popped up on Cigar Monster for something like $22, I jumped on the opportunity to give them a try.
Mike reviewed this cigar previously, if you are interested in the particulars, but I still thought a Short Ashes Review was in order. What it boils down to is that I’m beginning to see the Asylum brand as a company that makes a solid cigar at a decent price. Neither the Asylum Premium or the Asylum 13 will blow your mind with complex flavors but they will leave you satisfied.
The highlights of the Asylum 13 Sixty are as follows. You’ll get a medium bodied smoke with a medium flavor intensity. Flavors include a natural tobacco core, a little bitterness lingering on the tongue, some occasional spice, and a bit of chocolate here and there. The finish is mildly creamy and the construction was great.
No frills, just a good cigar at a good price.
