Illusione’s newest cigar should be appearing soon according to Dion Giolito. Earlier this year, a post by Giolito indicated the 4 1/2 x 50 Illusione Rothchildes would be available in “the Ides of March,” but a new post today hinted they might be available “sooner than you had planned.” News of the cigar first appeared late last year after Big Smoke, but details remained shaky at the time.
The original post, titled “An Old Beginning,” read:
New is old. Forward is backward. Making arrangements is necessary when confronting the all-kontroling. We have here for the loyal masses – a cigar – ‘Illusione Rothchildes’ – a classic 4 1/2 x 50 ring of long filler Nicaraguan tobacco led by a decadent maduro wrapper. New yet familiar, our new release will please the palate and the pocketbook. A stand alone cigar. A stand alone size. A stand alone brand. The powers that be deliver this cigar to you in the Ides of March.
Now Rothchildes appears on the Illusione website alongside the rest of his portfolio with the following message:
Look here, see everywhere. They will appear sooner than you had planned.
Giolito told halfwheel the Rothchildes, which are made at the Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua, will retail for $3.99 per cigar and sold in cabinets of 50 cigars.
This is the third consecutive new release to come from Giolito to come from the TABSA factory.
