With a name like Pandemonium, you know you're in for a boundary-pushing experience. No surprise, it comes from a company—Asylum Cigars—that is quite familiar with taking premium cigars to new limits.
Asylum Pandemonium is assuredly the best, most intense three-hour smoke ever devised. Indeed, every size in the Pandemonium collection boasts a whopping eight and a half inches in length! What changes is the ring gauge, moving from 52 at the low end, to 70 at the fattest. But the Pandemonium isn't simply a parlor trick, as it is chock-full with high-priming Nicaraguan tobaccos. This is important because a smoking experience longer than two hours had better keep the smoker's attention. Fiery Nicaraguan leaves make up the filler, binder, and wrapper, collectively allowing Pandemonium to showcase the most full-bodied profile to date from Asylum Cigars.
The cigar lights up with black pepper up front, later evolving to introduce transitions of charred oak, must, sweet molasses, black licorice, dark chocolate, and a punch to the face with full-bodied strength.
