Insidious by Asylum cigars are named after the popular horror movie by the same name, but that’s where the similarity ends. Insidious, the cigar by Asylum, is brand owner Tom Lazuka’s story about creating a handmade premium cigar blend that is beginner friendly, uncharacteristically smooth, and has the first sweetened cap of any Asylum offering to date.
Do you see the connection? Well, we sure as heck don’t! Perhaps Tom was thinking that if he named the cigars something like “Mr. Smoothy” nobody would buy them.
A company known for their robust fuller bodied blends; Lazuka felt it was time to create a premium cigar made with mellow bodied cigar fans in mind.
Insidious utilizes the first Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper leaf of any Asylum release. Smooth, creamy, and naturally sweet, this beautiful golden-brown wrapper surrounds an aged core of Honduran binder and long filler tobacco.
Notes of sweet cream, nuts, and hints of spice, remain consistent throughout the whole smoke, making it user friendly for newcomers while being the ideal premium cigar for seasoned enthusiasts to enjoy with that first piping hot mug of morning joe’.
