For the third time now, Illusione Cigars is honoring a Cigar Journal anniversary with a special cigar creation. The ~eccj~ 25th (our magazine used to be called European Cigar Cult Journal … ECCJ) marks the corresponding anniversary of our magazine this year. The Robusto with the dimensions  140 x 19,8 | 5 1/2 x 50 is a Nicaraguan puro from the TABSA factory in Nicaragua and is, according to Dion Giolito, owner of the Illusione Cigars, strongly characterized by Seco Corojo ’99 Jalapa and Seco Criollo ’98 Estelí. For sweetness and body, Dion Giolito adds some Viso Corojo ’99 Jalapa to the blend.

The Cigar comes in 15-count boxes and is available in the United States for USD 11.80 per stick. In contrast to the two earlier versions for our magazine’s 15th and 20th anniversaries, the~eccj~ 25th will be included in the unlimited, regular production and also offered to the Illusione distributors in Europe (including Davidoff), and in the Pacific region.

Don Giolito: “The eccj series is arguably one of the most lauded cigars we’ve ever produced. Our relationship with Cigar Journal over the years has been very strong, and we are more than humbled to be a part of their 25th anniversary by offering one of our favorite cigars on the worldwide.
