Illusione Epernay "A" Makes its Way to Market

Illusione Epernay

The newest and final addition to the Illusione Epernay cigar line has made it's way to tobacconists this month, and it's a big one. Dubbed Le Voyage, the giant Epernay is a classic "A" size measuring 9 1/4 inches by 49 ring, and according to brand owner Dion Giolito, it's the last size in the line.

"The A is a grand way to finish off a grand line of cigars," said Giolito. "Purely indulgent on my part."

Made of only Nicaraguan tobacco, Le Voyage marks the tenth size in the Epernay line and comes individually coffined in boxes of five. They retail for $25 each and are rolled in Honduras at the Raices Cubanas factory where the core Illusione brand is also produced.

Illusione Epernays tend to score well in Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider ratings. They've made the Top 25 Cigars of the Year list three times, most notably the Le Taureau, which reached the No. 3 spot on the 2011 list.

For a rating on the Epernay Illusione Le Voyage, see an upcoming Cigar Aficionado.
