Back in 2008, Illusione Cigars launched a limited edition cigar to commemorate European Cigar Cult Journal’s 15th anniversary called the Illusione ~eccj~. This was a 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Gorda that has become one of the most sought after limited editions by Illusione. The Illusione ~eccj~ eventually would morph into the popular Illusione Eperney line.  This year, brand owner Dion Giolito has announced the Illusione ~eccj~ would be returning in a new size – this time for Cigar Journal’s (the new name for European Cigar Cult Journal).  This cigar was showcased at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show in Las Vegas.

For the Illusione ~eccj~ 20th, this time Giolito introduces a 6 1/2 x 48 vitola.  The blend has been optimized to suit the new size.

Giolito said plans are to launch the Illusione ~eccj~ 20th in the September timeframe – coinciding with the Inter-Tabac expo in Dortmund Germany.

At a glance, here is a look at the Illusione ~eccj~ 20th:
