Looking for some ideas for cigars or pipe tobaccos that are perfect for a summer day’s enjoyment? This year’s TAA release from Asylum, the Asylum 13 11/18 cigar and Cornell & Diehl’s 2022 Small Batch release of Sun Bear: Mountain Flower pipe tobacco fit that bill. While we talk about the cigar, we also talk about the rationale behind TAA releases. Should they be aimed at their base with a tried-and-true blend, or should they be new or different blends aimed at attracting a new audience? In the case of the Asylum 13 2022 TAA 11/18, we have a new size and a new blend unlike the standard offerings from Asylum. And when it comes to Cornell & Diehl’s Sun Bear the blend of tobacco remains the same, but the source of honey used in it changes each year, which changes how the tobacco performs. Does this year’s release measure up to the hype behind the popular summer blend?
