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 had never even heard of this brand. Well today I smoked the #2. WOW!! I was taken back withen the first puff. Just a great cigar, very 'clean" tasting. Spice was not overpowering. I just really relaxed and took my time to smoke it. I was enjoying it so much a friend said, "You look like you are asleep". My reply, no just smoking the best cigar I have ever smoked!I slowly worked my way down. Very even burn, easy draw, and just did not want it to finish.I will for sure be buying this one again.
Great smoke. I smoke these and Ashton VSG's. That's about it. I try alot of others, but always come back to those two.
Great smoke. Full flavor really kicked in after about 1cm of burn, after that very smooth and tasty. Had to relight once,due to a cavity in middle of cigar. I'll chalk it up to constuction anomaly! Would smoke again if there weren't so many others to try! Definitely recommend though!
