Illusione HL Candela
Illusione cigars were designed to recreate the classic taste of pre-Sandinista Nicaraguan cigars. First generation Corojo '99, Criollo '98, are wrapped in either grade one Cafe Colorado wrappers or Candela wrappers, grown in fertile fields that had once fallen into neglect. Many sizes and shapes are available, all triple-capped, and each has a unique story to tell. In fact, if ANY brand demonstrates how shape informs taste and aroma, it's Illusione. This is absolutely a must-try cigar.
I have been wanting to write a review about this cigar ever since I took my first puff. It has everything I look for in a cigar - Smooth spice, a woody taste, with hints of coffee, and smell that sweet smell that lingers in the air. The only thing that I do not care for is how softness of the cigar.
