This week, Vintage Rock-A-Feller Cigars began shipping its new Art of Magic, a cigar that will help raise money for Phuck Cancer, a fundraising effort that benefits the medical treatment for Stephanie Nicole, daughter of artist Jessi Flores.

As for the cigar, it’s a 6 x 52 toro that uses a Mexican San Andrés wrapper over a Nicaraguan binder and Nicaraguan fillers. It is being produced at AGANORSA’s TABSA factory in Estelí.

Each cigar has an MSRP of $20, Vintage Rock-A-Feller is donating 5 percent of the sales to the fundraising effort. Production is limited to 200 boxes of 10 cigars.

Those proceeds will help pay for the treatment of Stephanie Nicole, who has heart issues that complicate the treatment of her kidney cancer. Flores—the artist who led Drew Estate’s art studio, Subculture Studios, from its founding until 2019—is also selling items to benefit the effort.

Flores designed the artwork for this release.

The name of the cigar is actually a reference to Vintage Rock-A-Feller’s owner, Kevin Schweitzer, who has been a magician since he was eight-years-old.
