Cigar Coop Review: Illusione Pactum (Part of the Smoke Inn MicroBlend Series)
Show Video: Episode 129
The Illusione Pactum is the ninth installment of South Florida retailer Smoke Inn’s MicroBlend Series. The concept has involved Smoke Inn teaming up with some of the biggest names in the cigar industry to produce a one time limited run exclusive to its shop. The Pactum represents the first collaboration with Smoke Inn and Illusione Cigars for the MicroBlend Series
The definition of Pactum comes from Roman Law and refers to a simple or informal agreement between two parties
While the Illusione Pactum is a part of Smoke Inn’s MicroBlend Series, it is also part of a series within the Illusione itself called Cigares Privé. This is a branding concept within Illusione for the shop exclusive / private labels Illusione is doing for select retailers. This makes the boxes and bands consistent.
Overall another great collaboration by Smoke Inn. This is going to have signature Illusione tea and earth notes. There also are notes of pepper and spice, but perhaps the most interesting flavor is a blackberry flavor. This one reminded me somewhat of the Viaje Satori (2011 and beyond). The flavors are medium to full-bodied countered by medium strength.
This is one of the more limited MicroBlends (400 boxes total). If you are an Illusione fan, you might wanna check this out. This is a box worthy cigar.
