Illusione Epernay cigars are made from a blend that debuted in 2008 via the European Cigar Cult Journal 15th Ltd. release. From this blend, Epernay has been made into four unique sizes with perfectly-aged Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo tobaccos exquisitely wrapped in a superior-grade Nicaraguan Café Rosado wrapper. The smoke is medium-bodied, very complex, and perfectly balanced, treating the palate to hints of coffee, honey, and floral notes. A masterpiece of a cigar! Order some now.

Great draw and burn. Very flavorful. A little pricey but well worth the money. Try a 5 pack when Famous has them on sale. You won’t regret it. Definitely a thumbs up on this one.
Excellent 1 hour smoke. Great burn and draw. Very tasty. Nice flavors. Medium bodied. Bought a 5 pack on sale at Famous Smoke. Still $8.00 a stick. But we’ll worth it. Just like a Cuban cigar. Thumbs up on this one
Excellent smoke. Great draw and burn. Medium to Full bodied. A little pricey but worth it.
Excellent draw and burn. Very tasty. Full bodied and boxed pressed. Great smoke but it’s a little pricey.
Excellent draw and burn. Very tasty. It’s a small cigar but the flavor is great. A little pricey but wait for Famous Smoke to put them on sale. As close to a Cuban cigar as I have smoked. I highly recommend this one.
Kept these at 72% RH for a few weeks and now the draw is rather tight and the wrapper is unraveling at the head. Outstanding tobacco, if you can manage to figure out the proper storing conditions.
I ve been looking long and hard for a full-bodied Connecticut, and I think I ve finally found something close to it. This stogie showed strong vanilla aromatics upon lightning, with understated vanilla oak on the palate, and some bitternes on the midpalate akin to a wet Connecticut. Toward the end of the first third the strength kicked up a notch becoming medium-to-full, the bitternes vanished and cedar came out strongly on the retrohale; it then turned into a full stick past the midpoint. Showed long vanilla wood on the aftertaste. Nicotine level was medium+ overall.Burned cool to the nub, for about 50 minutes, and went out when left unattended for more than a minute.Paired nicely with a saison-sour microbrew; I can see how it would also go well with a wheat bear or with Champagne. I ll dry box my next stogie overnight -- it looks like it can handle it.A little pricey, but hey, it s still cheaper than a Davidoff!93 points
Not sure why the low ratings on this one. They're delicious. A bit sweeter than their normal line. Flawless construction. Razor sharp burn. Pretty strong nicotine wise. Full strength and full flavor. I would definitely recommend them.
Perfect cigar for me, as I m a Robusto smoker. Tried the Longsdale, but found it too long a smoke. Great construction, easy draw, nice flavor. Reminded me of a good Cuban robusto. Try it.
One of my best finds in a long time. This cigar is truly a mild but full flavor stick. It has notes of coffee, chocolate, and honey. It is lightly spiced but just enough. I really can't say enough good things about it but to say it is a must buy.
