Dion Giolito, owner of the Illusione cigar brand, is reassessing and updating his Cruzado line by discontinuing two vitolas and replacing them with new sizes.
The Domencio, (5 5 /8 inches long by 56 ring gauge) will be replaced with the Domenicos Extra, beefed up to a 6 by 56 format, and carry a suggested retail price of $10.25.
The Marela, a slender, 5 5/8 by 46 perfecto, will be replaced by the Marelas Supremas. Giolito has not finalized the dimensions for this new shape yet.
The sizes will be released in August at the upcoming International Premium Cigar & Pipe Retailers trade show in New Orleans.
