Vintage Rock-A-Feller Cigar Group (VRCG) focused its attention on the Tobacco Plus Expo (TPE) 2021 Show held earlier this year. When 2021 started, the company released its Art of Magic, a limited edition project that proved to be a success for the company. At TPE 2021, the company decided to build on the success for Art of Magic and announce a second Art of Magic cigar. This Art of Magic features a Cameroon wrapper. A pre-release of this cigar was offered to some attendees at TPE 2021 with a full release scheduled later this year.
The name Art of Magic is inspired by owner Kevin Schweitzer’s love of magic. Schweitzer himself is a magician and a member of the Society of American Magicians. The first Art of Magic project was produced at Aganorsa Leaf’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A. (TABSA) factory in Estelí, Nicaragua and featured a San Andres wrapper. The second release which was previewed at TPE is being produced at American Caribbean Cigars, a factory that VRCG has worked with on its Rock-A-Feller Nicaraguan blends.
In addition to the Cameroon wrapper, the new Art of Magic will feature an Ecuadorian binder and all-Nicaraguan fillers. It will be available in a 6 x 54 box-pressed Toro. The cigars will be presented in ten-count boxes. A total of 4,000 cigars (400 boxes) will be produced.
During TPE, the final art work for the new Art of Magic was not showcased. Like the first Art of Magic, the new Art of Magic will feature art work done by Jessi Flores, who used to run Subculture Studios for Drew Estate. As a part of the release, a portion of proceeds will go to the charity Phuck Cancer. Flores’ daughter Stephanie Nicole is going through a very difficult battle with cancer. The proceeds from the Phuck Cancer campaign will help fund Stephanie’s medical and treatment expenses as well as raise cancer awareness as a whole.
