Overview
Illusione is a small boutique brand that has earned the distinction as the #7 cigar in Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of 2007. Dion Giolito, the creator of Illusione cigars, wanted 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 Arsenio 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 best tobaccos once again. All Illusione cigars are made in the premier Raices Cubanas factory from first generation Corojo ’99, Criollo ’98 seeds, wrapped with a grade one Café Colorado wrapper, and finished with a traditional triple cap. 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. They also make excellent cigars for aging!

Toast up. Review out.

If size mattered in the jungle then the elephant would be king...don't be fooled by this petit corona, the '68' delivers flavors in full force! Rich toasty walnuts, leather, and spice first third THEN... hints of burnt caramel sweetness in the second! Finishing off with some coffee and nutty notes. This thing put up an at least an hour before it got put down. Obviously, bigger isn't always better - but for the price the size should match. Either way..bought two...came back for 5. Hope you enjoy these!
