The concept behind Illusione Cigars was to re-create a specific taste profile from years past. Before the Sandinistas took over Nicaragua 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. After years of neglect, these old Somoza fields have been re-cultiviated by the legendary master grower Arcenio Ramos of Cuba. Along with Fernano, Chandito and famed Cuban agronomist Jacinto, Arsenio has assembled the varitable dream team of tobacco production. They have re-grown these humble acres to yield their fullest potential once again. All Illusione cigars are made from first generation Corojo 99, Criollo 98 seeds, wrapped with a grade one Caf Colorado wrapper, and finished with a traditional triple cap in the premier Raices Cubanas factory. Illusione cigars deliver a taste and a quality of smoke rarely found in today's market. All of Illusione cigars are made in small-batch quantities to maintain quality and consistency.

It is a well made cigar with clean delicious taste. It draws exceptionally well. It is rather strong and satisfies even for its small size.

These are great shorter smokes with rich flavor. If you enjoy a full bodied cigar this is for you.

My favorite cigar period.

The medium-bodied profile has a balanced taste of roasted nuts, sweet cream, earth, and tobacco. The texture is meaty and the resting smoke is floral. Black pepper and cocoa build at the midway point. Towards the last third, there’s a slight increase in spice and floral notes grow to become prominent.

This little smoke exceeded my expectations, and has now become one of my all time favorites. I highly recommend this cigar to everyone from the novice cigar smoker to the seasoned cigar enthusiast. Cant get enough of these.

This little cigar packs a big punch! Don't let the size full you, this cigar has plenty of flavor. Starts off with toasted nuts and goes straight for the jugular sweeT spices, cedar, pepper and finally mix in some melon and citrus. These favors stay through out the smoke. You want to light one up one after the other. This little monster goes great with beer, bourbon, or scotch. So buy a box and enjoy.
