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.
Beautiful smoke! Oh my gawd! This thing is a little baby beast. I didn't extpect alot from this thing. It was tiny compared to what I'm normally smoking & really had this what the heck? kind of attitude going in. It starts med to full & goes full in the last half with an exceptionally complex profile throughout. If you burn too fast it's all strength but take your time & flavors unfold like silk sheets. Pepper is moderate till the end and spices abound. Earth and leather, nutty sweetness and faint anise tricked me into a perception of coconut retro. Get them when you can and save them IF you can...0 0
