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.

Full yet Smooth , Consistent & great burn
I never get bored of these. You don t need to be a rich man to smoke a really good cigar. You just don t. This is a go to favorite BUT its better than just a go to stick. Nicaragua baby! Complex flavor bomb, earthy spicy. Yeah.
This has been one of my favorite cigars for years, when you can find them. Deep, rich, complex flavors, medium - full body. Great smoke output. Glad to see Famous is carrying them again.
Everything is perfect about this one: taste, aroma, burn, size, combustion, etc. great go to smoke with delicious red pepper on the inhale and bakers spice on the retrohale.
The box, once opened, yields a wonderful sweet earthy chocolate aroma that is a harbinger of good things to come. At first light the cigar offers sweet dark creamy notes that overwhelm the palate and let one know that the cigar is well balanced. The flavor profile does not change much, if at all and is able to hold one s attention for the duration of the experience. for the price this is hard to beat and that is why I am calling it a true diamond in the rough .
I have had more expensive cigars with higher reviews that I liked much less.
I smoke a lot of cigars under $10 each and this is one of my favorites everyday cigars, morning and evenings. great taste %26 smell. I kept them stocked at home %26 office.
Very complex for such a small cigar. Excellent draw, no burn issues. I picked up a slight taste of burnt peanuts, hay, and fresh tarragon in the last 1/2 (a first for me). I paired it with Ardbeg Alligator and it was quite the experience.
I tried Illusione 88 Robust Candela for the first time today and was definitely not disappointed; and would recommend it to anyone.
This is one of the best tasting maduros I ve ever toked on, its more a medium to full and has a wonderful draw to it the ash is more of a grayish and stayed on all the way down to a nub, all in all its a great cigar GET ONE!!!
