C.L.E. Announces Asylum 867 at PCA 2023

June 22, 2023 By Matthew Tabacco



C.L.E. Cigar Company announces the release of Asylum 867 (formerly known as Deadwood Tobacco Co. Chasing the Dragon). Asylum, recognized for its bold and edgy cigars, pushes the boundaries once again. The new variable for this blend is the involvement of Wild Bill Rectenwald and his team at Deadwood Tobacco Co. and Cigar Bar in Deadwood, South Dakota

Christian Eiroa, Founder and President of C.L.E. Cigar Company turned over the keys to Wild Bill and his team to blend a cigar like no other Asylum blend. Asylum 867 presents an aromatic smoking experience using exotic tobacco.

Wild Bill Rectenwald, a Marine, gun lover and motorcycle rider has created a culture in South Dakota so unique that this cigar baris billed as “Best Cigar Bar in the West.” That culture, so contagious that Tom Lazuka, C.L.E. Cigar Company VP of sales and co-founder of Asylum Cigars, strongly felt that a collaboration between Asylum and Wild Bill would be a huge success.

Christian Eiroa said:” Tom Lazuka is a huge fan of Wild Bill, his team, and their creative ideas for new blends. When Tom first came to me with this idea, I thought it was crazy enough to be an Asylum project. In the end Wild Bill and his team have brought to the table a blend that introduces a new dimension for the Asylum brand.”
