Christian Eiroa has taken the cigar world by storm with his 90+ rated Camacho family of brands that include CLE, Wynwood, and now the Asylum series. Unlike his Camacho family of brands that are made in Honduras, the Asylum 13 Sixty you have in your shipment today is a true Nicaraguan Puro made in Estelí that features some of the same Camacho traditions but brings even more flavor and strength. This gorgeous stick starts with a dark and oily Nicaraguan Habano wrapper that hugs a Nicaraguan binder and a combination of aged Cuban seed long filler grown throughout the black volcanic soils of Nicaragua. Once lit, bold flavors of earth, cocoa, espresso bean, black tobacco, sweet notes, and gentle spices will hit the palate with a slow, cool, razor sharp burn. We enjoyed this medium to full-bodied stogie with a scotch on a warm summer night on the patio.
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.
