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.
It's not easy to find a smooth, top quality clark stogie. The 888 is great.01
Quality construction, flavor was very consistent throughout. Plenty of complex flavors to savor. Very yummy02
I truly love candela cigars and I was looking forward to the Illusione Candela. The flavors that came off of this cigar was very good and not like any other candela cigar I have smoked in the past. The downside was the cigar did not burn very well, and at mid range the draw became difficult. I will let the rest sit in my humidor for a while and see if they improve. Just on flavor alone I would recommend.00
