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 Café 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 today’s cigar market.

Outstanding

the whole line is delicious, but I prefer these to the Epernays

My previous experiences with this cigar have been exemplary. The first of the new arrival appeared very good with the usual firm construction. The initial aroma pre-light was also as usual. Upon first light however the flavors were harsh, the peppery taste usually associated with the first light of this cigar were not apparent. There were no pleasant tastes of pepper. Just a harshness that defied normal taste associations. The cigar smoothed out somewhat after the first inch. There were very low levels of chocolate/coffee/leather that remained for the first half of the cigar. However by the time I had reached the end of that first 1/2 the harshness had returned. I had had enough. The second stick was no better. I would normally give this a 92 on the C/A scale. These two however have dropped to am 84 IMO. I will try another after letting them rest another month.
