"I really enjoyed this cigar. Transition of flavors was noticeable, but subtle. Draw, burn, finish, flavors, construction, complexity, all admirable. Ultimately, I would buy this cigar." -Randy B. (randobush)

"I really enjoyed smoking this cigar. The first 1/3 of the cigar was truly fantastic. Really great spice and pepper to begin mixed with hints of sweetness. If the flavors continued throughout the rest of the cigar, it would have ranked much higher for me. While the second and final 1/3 of the cigar was very good, I was missing a lot of the flavors that the cigar started out having. " -David F. (dfafjf)
The cigar had excellent flavor until the wrapper unraveled. This caused most of the flavor to leave for the last third. Prior to this issue, the flavors were very enjoyable, with enough transitions to keep me interested. I'm looking forward to finding out what this cigar is as it is definitely worth at least a 5 pack purchase. I think it has lots of aging potential as well." -Dan (Danfish)
"This was a nice pleasant smoke that I would absolutely smoke again. I believe this was a corona or even a petite corona. There was plenty of transitions to keep my attention. Starting out with wood, chocolate and rye then switching up to earth tones then settling out with cream.....very interesting smoke. " -Mickey T. (irratebass)

"I struggled with the rating on this one. I ended up giving it the benefit of the doubt and rating it "good" instead of "fair" because it was not in my wheelhouse. Overall, I wouldn't want to smoke it again. It strikes me as very similar to several homerolls I've tried, the flavor profile was overly syrupy, and lacked clarity. I tend to prefer a cleaner flavor profile. It's not for me, but fans of sweet cigars or sumatra wrappers might appreciate this one." -Derek (StogieNinja)
The Insidious by Asylum is a cigar that was released during the IPCPR 2014 trade show. The wrapper is Ecuadorian Connecticut and the binder and filler are Honduran. The cigar features a sweetened cap.
"I would reach for this one again. The cigar was a nice mild-medium profile that did not stray at any point. The bitterness I experienced at the beginning had me worried but the cigar got past that quickly and was very enjoyable. Bonus points for being a box pressed lonsdale. " -Quinn (quinnpins269)
