In 2014, Illusione debuted its Cigars Privé series with an exclusive release for Hawaii’s R. Field Wine Co. Now, that cigar is back for its second release.
The Illusione MC Slam 2 Redux is the same blend as the original MC Slam, though Illusione’s Dion Giolito said the tobacco is from a different crop year. That means it uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. That includes tobaccos from both Estelí and Jalapa, Nicaragua. It is produced at Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. in Estelí.
Pricing has increased from $8.50 to $10 per cigar. The second release is limited to 200 boxes of 25 cigars. Due to Hawaii’s state tax on cigars, the price is likely to be more for those who purchase at an R. Field store in Hawaii.
Marvin Chang of R. Field Wine Co. said the cigar is now available and shipping.
