Produced by master blender Christian Eiroa and his now famous CLE Cigar Company, Asylum 13 Medulla Oblongata cigars are named for the part of the brain that controls autonomic functions such as breathing, heart rate and blood pressure. In keeping with this neuronal mass theme, the cigars come in 50-count boxes, each filled with 25 cigars that are round and 25 cigars that are box-pressed. The round cigars are called Medulla while the box-pressed version is called Oblongata. The cigars may be shaped differently, but the blend is the same, with both versions featuring 100% aged Honduran tobaccos covered with a top-quality Corojo wrapper that was grown on Eiroa's farm exclusively for this” brainy” blend. These edgy and modern cigars take the taste buds on a scrumptious medium to full bodied, thought provoking journey filled with leather, earth, cocoa, dark spicy tobacco, and a long-lasting creamy finish.
