Cigares Prive, a line of cigars by Illusione that was designed to be shop exclusives for various retailers will now be available to all retailers. The line was showcased at the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show.
The name Cigares Prive stands for “Private Cigars”. Several of Illusione’s shop exclusive cigars were put under the Cigares Prive line. This allowed brand owner Dion Giolito to have a common set of branding and packaging for the series.
Cigares Prive is now being released in two blends – a Nicaraguan Corojo and a San Andres Maduro. Both blends will be available in the same set of three sizes each packaged in 25 count boxes.
Prior to IPCPR, Illusione announced a major expansion to its portfolio. As a part of this expansion, Illusione’s limited edition cigars were incorporated into regular production. Along with Cigares Prive, the Illusione ~eccj~ and Illusione Singulare lines have also become regular production.
