I enjoyed the Asylum Ten 11/18, and it is no surprise. You present me with a Honduran blend like this and I will be happy. It is balanced and has a profile to my liking. There are subtle flavors throughout, and it is focused around wood, earth, barnyard and cream notes. Nice body and strength with that as well.
The Asylum Arkham 52x6 started well, but fell off as the chalkiness joined and the toast level increased. The final third dropped off as the char and bitterness joined. Overall, I don't see this as a cigar I'd return to as the final third took away from the positives of the first third. The price point is attractive, so it's an easy try to see what you think.
