Illusione F9 Finesse Dark Natural cigars recreate the classic taste of pre-Sandinista Nicaraguan cigars. First generation Corojo '99 & Criollo '98 tobaccos are wrapped in grade one Cafe Colorado capas, harvested from fertile fields that had once fallen into neglect. Particularly delectable in the Lonsdale shape.

My long time favorite cigar has been the CAO Maduro l'Anniversarie (aka "red label")in the carona size. I like the smaller ring gauges. Sometimes these CAOs can be hard to find so I'm always on the lookout for a comparable fall back smoke. I think I found it. The f9 has the same smooth, opaque smoke that the CAO has. A great rich taste, and even burn. I had to relight a couple times in the last half of the cigar. The draw was a little tight. I do like tighter draws on my cigars though. I don't like to feel like I'm just sucking on an empty drinking straw. And to boot the CAO and the f9 are within 25 cents of each other at my local shop. After trying this one in the shop, which does carry the l'Anniversarie CAOs, I took some f9s home for my humidor.less
