Straight Jacket is Asylum's first foray into limited-release cigars, and this is one for the books. If you're not prepared to have your palate flooded with flavor, then stay away from Straight Jacket.
Christian Eiroa has created a Nicaraguan puro with a rich brown wrapper and a whimsical band that will catch your eye, but it's not the appearance that will grab you by the...er...tastebuds. The profile is earthy with notes of espresso, dark chocolate and pepper that will weave its way in and out. This isn't a stick to light up before breakfast, but when you want to wrap up a great evening with a robust libation and need a cigar that will stand up to it, try a Straight Jacket on for size.
