One new Singularé and two new Haut 10s are now shipping to stores.
The Illusione Singularé 2018 Turin is a 6 1/4 x 52 vitola, the latest in Illusione’s line of annual limited edition cigars. It’s once again a Nicaraguan puro, with tobaccos coming from “select farms,” though Dion Giolito, Illusione’s founder, opted to stop naming said farms.
When the cigar was announced last year it was listed as a 7 1/2 x 50.
Pricing is set at $13 per cigar. Giolito previously told halfwheel that it would be the smallest release in the series’ history, meaning less than 900 boxes.
Illusione also has two new sizes of its Haut 10 blend.
The Haut 10 Churchill (6 3/4 x 48, $17.95) and Haut 10 Gordo (6 x 56, $16.95) are now being offered to stores, the first new sizes since the original: a 5 1/2 x 52 that debuted in July 2016. All three cigars are sold in boxes of 12.
That cigar—a Nicaraguan puro with a corojo wrapper—went on to win halfwheel’s top cigar in 2016.
