Schizo cigars are handmade in Nicaragua by Asylum Cigars, a joint venture between Tom Lazuka and Christian Eiroa, former president of Camacho cigars. The blend consists of all-Nicaraguan tobaccos for a mild to medium profile with a cool, clean taste. Since they're made with shortfiller tobaccos, Schizo cigars are priced to enjoy every day. Even better, they perform consistently well in burn, flavor, and aroma. For an affordable mild cigar, you'd be hard-pressed to do better. Give 'em a try!
I wasn t sure about these at first, but they sounded good and the price was right. I m glad I took the plunge to try them. They are very nicely rolled cigars. They look great, they are nice and tightly wrapped. They smell great, out of the cellophane. Everything you would expect in a high quality cigar.I will say, you must be careful when you light these. The first one I light I torched too hard and got a very nasty burnt taste for the first few minutes of smoking. That was my fault, not the cigars. I ve smoked several more of these since then and have never had that issue again as I m more careful not to overdo it when I light them. Again, my fault not the cigars.The taste is good, not excellent but still good. Draw and burn have been nice and consistent. All of the once I ve smoked so far have been constructed very well also. I ll be buying more of these. These will likely become my new fishing, yard work, etc etc cigar as they are a great smoke, but they are still cheap enough that if something happens to stick while you re doing something you won t mind too much.
The price was right, so I bought a bunch of these. I m indifferent to appearance - it looks like a good cigar. The consistency and burn are really not good. When lit, more often than not, there s a run down one side, so you have 1/2 of the cigar unburned. I have ended up cutting off part of the cigar and relight it so it will burn more evenly. The draw is tight until you get to about the last third. The construction isn t that great either, as I feel like I m chewing tobacco because they tend to fall apart. I thought this might be related to my cut, so I bought a new cutter. No luck. I am not all that impressed with the taste either. After smoking one of these, I fired up an Asylum 13. The difference was remarkable.
