I spoke re: this offering in: 76. Kaplowitz Radio Friday w/ Tom Lazuka, Asylum Cigars.

"The new cigar comes in 50-count boxes, each filled with 25 cigars that are round and 25 cigars that are box-pressed. The round cigars are called Medulla while the box-pressed version is called Oblongata. The cigars may be shaped differently, but the blend is the same.

"Asylum 13 Medulla Oblongata is an homage of sorts to Honduras, from the blend to the packaging. The blend is 100 percent Honduran tobacco, as both the round and box-pressed versions are covered with fourth- and fifth-priming Corojo wrapper that was grown on brand owner Christian Eiroa's Corojo Farm, while the binder and filler are both Honduran. Additionally, all the boxes and packaging (save for the cigar rings) were manufactured in Jamastran." - www.CigarAficionado.com
