At the 2021 Tobacco Plus Expo this week, Vintage Rock-A-Feller Cigars will be releasing the second cigar in its Art of Magic line.

This new cigar features a completely different blend from the first cigar, using a Cameroon wrapper, Ecuadorian habano binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It is offered in a 6 x 54 box pressed toro vitola that has an MSRP of $14, with production handled by American Caribbean Cigars S.A. Production is being limited to 400 boxes of 10 cigars.

Additionally, the company said that the cigar is still to be named, so while it is being referred to as the Art of Magic Box Press Toro for the time being, that could change.

The packaging will once again feature the artwork of Jessi Flores, who recently joined Mombacho Cigars S.A. as the company’s creative director after nearly two decades at Drew Estate. Flores designed the artwork of the first release in the line, which was released in March 2021. The line was released as a way to help raise money for Phuck Cancer, a charity started by Flores, as his daughter, Stephanie Nicole, has battled cancer and related health issues.

That first Art of Magic release used a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and filler, and was offered in a 6 x 52 toro vitola that was priced at $20. The line gets its name from the fact that Vintage Rock-A-Feller’s owner, Kevin Schweitzer, has been a magician since he was eight-years-old, and is a member of the Society of American Magicians.

A shipping date for the new cigar has not yet been announced.

I strive to capture the essence of a cigar and the people behind them in my work – every cigar you light up is the culmination of the work of countless people and often represents generations of struggle and stories. For me, it’s about so much more than the cigar – it’s about the story behind it, the experience of enjoying the work of artisans and the way that a good cigar can bring people together. In addition to my work with halfwheel, I’m the public address announcer for the Colorado Rockies and Arizona Diamondbacks during spring training, as well as for the Salt River Rafters of the Arizona Fall League, the WNBA's Phoenix Mercury and the Arizona Rattlers of the Indoor Football League. I also work in a number of roles for MLB.com, plus I'm a voice over artist. I previously covered the Phoenix and national cigar scene for Examiner.com, and was an editor for Cigar Snob magazine.
