|This Illusione MKUltra now has some new siblings|
A few weeks ago, we recapped an interview that Kiss My Ash Radio did with Illusione Cigars’ founder Dion Giolito. In that interview, Giolito discusses plans for the 2012 involving the Singulare and Ultra lines. In that interview, he mentioned there were line extensions coming for the Ultra line that were sitting in the warehouse. These new vitolas are now beginning to make their way to retailers.
There are three new vitolas that have been added using the Ultra blend. The big difference between these vitolas and the original Illusione Ultra MK is that the new vitolas are box-press cigars. The new vitolas use the name “Illusione OP”
Here are the particulars on the blend and the new vitolas:
Like the original Ultra MK (or MKUltra), the new vitolas are all Nicaraguan puros leveraging a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo
As mentioned, the three new OP vitolas are all box-pressed.
Ultra OP No.1 (Double Corona): 6 3/4 x 56
Ultra OP No. 9 (Toro): 5 1/2 x 56
Ultra OP No. 4 (Robusto): 4 3/4 x 48
MK (Petit Corona): 5 1/8 x 42
We will have more details on these cigars in the future.
