Nosotros Cigar Brand Discontinued

The Nosotros brand of Nicaraguan cigars has been officially discontinued. A collaboration between Illusione brand owner Dion Giolito and Jonathan Drew, the co-founder of Drew Estate, the short-lived Nosotros line was released at the 2009 IPCPR trade show but did not officially go on sale until the Spring of 2010.

Giolito released this statement today announcing the end of the cigar brand, saying the move was effective immediately:

"Illusione cigars will no longer participate in the Nosotros brand project with Jonathan Drew DBA Drew Estate. After two and a half years, terms for a product delivery date still could not be negotiated. The Nosotros brand/trademark dies in the Drew Estate Factory as per contractual agreement, and will not be made outside of the factory where it originated."

Giolito declined to comment any further on the matter.

When asked for comment, Jonathan Drew of Drew Estate said, "It was an interesting experience."
