This Illusione cigar got a high rating at Cigar Aficionado so I was very curious about it and the looks made my curiosity grow. The wrapper is very dark with some veins and a dark natural drawing in the leaf. The aroma was a very heavy manure aroma. The predraw tasted like raisin and was a little too easy.
When I light the cigar I can taste nuts with a light sour and herbs but the sour flavor disappears soon. Halfway some leather appears with some cacao on the background soon to be replaced with the nuts I could taste earlier.
The smoke is amazing, very thick & white and the ash is firm. The draw is a little too easy and the burn was a bit crooked.
Would I buy this cigar again? Yes, if possible, it’s hard to find.
