A limited edition Illusione is heading to Fox Cigar Bar. On Monday, the Gilbert, Az.-based store will begin selling the Illusione Sin Cinta. Sin cinta, which translates into tapeless or no band, is a predictably unbanded 6 x 52 toro limited to 50 cabinets of 50 cigars.
Sin Cinta is a Nicaraguan puro using a corojo wrapper from Jalapa and fillers from both Estelí and Jalapa. It also uses double binders: a corojo ’98 from Jalapa and criollo ’98 from Estelí. The cigars were rolled in November at TABSA, the same factory response for Rothchildes and the recent batches of Singularé.
Pricing is set at $8.99 per cigar or $400.00 per box. The cigar will be sold locally beginning on Jan. 27 and will not be available for phone orders until Feb. 3, although there is a wait list.
Fox Cigar Bar is no stranger to exclusive releases. Last year alone it received exclusive cigars from Aging Room, La Flor Dominicana and Ortega. This is also not the first external single store release for Illusione, the company produced an entire line for Burn in 2010.
