Asylum 13 Medulla Oblongata was a line presented at the 2017 IPCPR. The peculiarity is that each box contains the same cigar, but one is box-pressed (Oblongata), and one is round (Medulla). There are 25 cigars each in a box. The cigar, available in five sizes and in Natural and Maduro variants, is a Honduran Puro made in the Eiroa’s El Aladino manufactory in Danlì, Honduras.
The name derives from the “Medulla Oblongata”, a portion of the brain responsible for controlling involuntary functions such as the act of breathing or sneezing.
After removing the tissue paper covering part of the cigar, the Asylum 13 Oblongata Natural 52×6 is presented dressed in Colorado-colored wrapper leaves. To the touch, they are silky, and the construction is excellent and flawless.
