The concept behind Illusione Cigars was to re-create a specific taste profile from years past. Before the Sandinistas took over in 1979, Nicaragua was growing some of the best tobaccos in the world. The cigars made from these prized fields in the Jalapa Valley and Esteli region were strong, bold and clean. Fast-forward to 2012 and these humble acres have been re-invigorated to once again yield their fullest potential, including the premium tobaccos found in the Illusione cigar. All Illusione cigars are made from first generation Corojo 99 and Criollo 98 seeds, wrapped with a grade one Caf Colorado wrapper, and finished with a traditional triple cap in the premier Raices Cubanas factory. Made in small-batch quantities to maintain top quality and consistency, Illusione cigars deliver a satisfying taste and bold character rarely found in todays cigar market.
I’m a total Nicaraguan cigar supporter, and the illusione has mastered the leaf.

I like illusione cigars ver much. Well built, steady burn, nice draw, fune taste. The only problem is price. I have to wait for some kind of deal to afford them.

very fine cigar. the burn rate and draw is the best part. plenty of rich tasty smoke with very liitle effort. this is a mild to medium cigar. perfect cigar when you don't have a lot of time to smoke one.
