Where it’s at: Rolled in a dark chocolate-colored San Andrés Maduro wrapper, the Asylum 13 Medulla Oblongata Maduro Toro opens with notes of earth, sweet spice, cedar, and a dash of pepper. The smoke is dense and creamy on a long, sweet n’ spicy finish. Burn is slow and even with a gravity-defying ash. At the half the sweetness builds, the pepper fades, and some saltiness creeps in making for a luscious, salted caramel effect. Everything keeps chugging along nicely from there with a well-balanced, medium-plus body. A most opulent, humidor-worthy treat.
