Illusione to Release PCA-Exclusive Smoke

Illusione Cigars will be introducing a new size to its Cigares Privé line this summer, but retailers will have to attend the Premium Cigar Association trade show if they want to carry it.

“We will not take pre-show orders, or post-show orders,” the company said in an announcement. “The cigars will be available only at the show, and in limited amounts. …We want to do our part by incentivizing the retailers to come to the show…”

The new cigar measures 5 1/2 inches by 56 ring gauge. Softly pressed, it consists of an Ecuador Habano wrapper around Nicaraguan tobacco and comes in bundles of 10. Pricing has yet to be determined.

Like most Illusione cigars, the new Cigares Privé size is made in Nicaragua at the Aganorsa Leaf factory (previously called TABSA) in Estelí.
