Christian Eiroa has taken the cigar world by storm with his 90+ rated Camacho family of brands, with the boutique brand Asylum being one of them. Handcrafted to near perfection in Honduras, this medium to full bodied blend features Honduran long-fillers that are secured by a Honduran Corojo binder and a dark Mexican San Andrés wrapper. Once lit, expect notes of espresso bean, earth, black pepper, and leather. Bold in flavor, pair this smoke with something equally as bold, such as a café Cubano.
Honduras has been a tobacco growing and cigar manufacturing area for hundreds of years, but it was the Communist revolution in Cuba that really put Honduras on the map. In the 1960s, many Cuban cigar makers fled their homeland and arrived in Honduras to re-establish their way of life. The immigrants took advantage of the climate, soil, and geography, which were well-suited to tobacco growing, and began producing high quality cigars. The center of the Honduran cigar industry is the city of Danli and the nearby Jamastran Valley. The majority of the world’s pure Corojo tobacco is grown here, now that Cuba has stopped production of this iconic, spicy, and rich variety in favor of Corojo hybrids. Other important areas of Honduran cigar production include the Talanga Valley, Copan, and Trojes.
