April Cigar of the Month: Asylum 13 NOW! WITH MORE STUFF!

EDITED April 20, 2015: You guys! While the cat is away, the mouse will...
Sneak into Valentino's humidor and add to this giveaway!

So this, plus the t-shirt and four smaller Asylum 13s!

First of all, congratulations to our Twitter peeps Mark V, Tim M, and Chris B --all three won some Rocky Patel 1961 cigars! (And Mark, as the first one chosen, gets a lotta something extra!) 
(And we let Rafflecopter do the choosing, so no bias!)

The other day, we got the chance to hang with Asylum co-owner and all-around awesome dude Tom Lazuka and the always lovely and charming CLE regional sales manager Lauren Ferraro at Habanos in Pawtucket, RI.

And they were nice enough to offer up this for you guys to win!

YEP! T-shirt and four cigars--plus whatever else we can dig up!

From the company website: "Asylum 13 cigars are true Nicaraguan Puros. A dark Nicaraguan Habana wrapper coats a combination of aged Cuban seed long filler grown throughout the black volcanic soils of Nicaragua. One can expect a slow, cool burn with a medium to full bodied array of flavor. These cigars are eventful throughout and something you don't want to miss out on."

Now you know Valentino is a superfan of Nicaraguan tobacco, so actually taking these away from him will be a challenge--but one I'm up for, because heh heh.*

As Cigars International so eloquently states about the Asylum 13, "A dark, Nicaraguan Habano wrapper cloaks a feisty combination of aged Cuban-seed long-fillers grown throughout the black, volcanic soils of Nicaragua. Upon lighting, one can expect a complex, medium to full-bodied array of flavorful, Nica-influenced goodness, along with a slow, cool burn letting you fully appreciate every last nuance. Earth, cocoa, espresso bean, black tobacco, sweet notes, and gentle spices. Indeed, Asylum 13 is eventful throughout, and a cigar you don't want to miss out on."**

And you won't miss out--if you enter the giveaway! But you can't win if you don't play!        
To sweeten the pot, I'm planning to break into these...

This is an old picture. They're both reasonably full now.

...and swiping a little something extra for you. (Because I'm nice like that.)

How do you enter? Via a Rafflecopter giveaway !! Do it now!!!!!
