Illusione ~ cg:4 ~

Today we take a look at the Illusione ~ cg:4 ~. The cigar I am reviewing is the corona vitola. This Nicaraguan puro is also know as the “White Horse”.

Country: Honduras

Wrapper: Nicaraguan

Binder: Nicaraguan

Filler: Nicaraguan

Strength: Full

Pre-light:

The wrapper is a dark chocolate color with minimal veins. Has a well applied triple cap this is easily removed with my Palio cutter. The draw is perfect with notes of spice and nuts on the old draw. The wrapper has a sweet spicy aroma and is very firmly packed with tobacco.
1st Third:

With the first few drags of this Illusione you get lots of spice. After the first quarter inch your are met with nuttiness and earth. The pepper comes and goes and you move through the first third. This cigar produces lots and lots of smoke with a very nice room aroma. The burn has been perfect and the retrohale is very smooth with just a touch of pepper.

2nd Third:

The ash is not very strong and tends to flake and fall apart if you are not paying attention to it. The main flavors have become nut with a woody finish to it. The burn goes a little out of wack at some points but corrects itself. You still get notes of pepper but the are few and far between. I am surprised by the amount of smoke this cigar produces considering the small size.

Final Third:

As we pull into the final third earthiness has become the mainstay with the nutty notes hanging in the background.

Overall:

I didn’t want to put this cigar down. I thought I was going to burn my fingers it was so good. Had lots of good flavors and with them being around the $6-$7 range is definitely worth the price. You should most definitely get out to your local B&M and pick a few of these bad boys up.

Keep ‘em burnin’
