Schizo is the aptly named mixed filler brand extension of the popular Asylum line of cigars. As you smoke one of these tasty Nicaraguan puros you will probably start arguing with yourself about whether or not it’s a long filler or short filler cigar. There’s your emotional part telling you what a great cigar it is. And then there’s your rational part that simply states “It’s just a short filler cigar. How good can it really be?” Your emotional part takes a nice long pull of the Schizo, savoring the flavorful smoke as subtle notes of leather, cream, and gentle spices with just a hint of cocoa covers your palate. Then after blowing out a thick cloud of savory smoke replies “Flavor this good doesn’t come from a short filler cigar. No way!” Your rational part then casually reaches in your pocket and pulls out the receipt for your Schizo bundle, looks at it, and then places it in front of you before smugly replying “At that price it has to be short filler.” The arguing continues and at times gets pretty heated, which is actually quite entertaining for anyone watching.

Regardless of what the voices in your head have to say about it, by the time you’ve finished one of these inexpensive, flavorful, Nicaraguan puros you will feel surprisingly relaxed, and happy, with both parts of you finally realizing that they’re both right. After all Asylum Schizo is a Cuban sandwich type cigar, which is a combination of both kinds of filler

Schizo is a great everyday cigar for those of us on a budget who love medium to full body cigars with large ring gauges from 50 to the extreme 70. Try a bundle today & you 2 can have a flavor-filled party . . . even if it’s all by yourself.

  A good daily smoke. Not a great daily smoke

Some things grown on you. This was the case with me. My liking of the first few was marginal, at best. But, by my 5th or 6th I began to enjoy them, but only just. Where the heck they get EMS is beyond me. They are Maduros, not EMS, or they are tying to be past off as EMS, which is a fine, light roll, not this dark cheroot of a stick. The smoke is fairly mellow with a slightly sweet pallet, so thats nice. But dont go tugging on this little guy, or it will get bitter on you, right quick-like. The are all inconstant, in that everyone of them burns at times very unevenly, or will even start to go out. Especially toward the end of some of them. It gets lazy and you have to pull on the sucker to keep it light. At that point, its a little frustrating, and you may as well be smoking a Have A Tampa. My point: these are not AFs or Hoyos. Its a cheep cigar akin to Trailers for sale or rent. Rooms to let, fifty cents... You get the picture. All in all, they are OK for the money you pay. Will I buy, or recommend them to others? NO.

  These were 50/50 for me

These are just good enough to make you question if you like them or not. I finally decided that I did not like them because I shouldnt have to work so hard to enjoy a cigar. This applies to 10 of the 20 that I smoked... I had trouble keeping them lit. They never burned evenly. I spent more time working on the cigar to improve the draw than actually enjoying smoking it. The other 10 of the 20 that I smoked. Great cigar for the price. Nice ring gauge and length. Good plume of smoke. Good flavor.
