This was a very enjoyable cigar, too bad they are no longer making them. Its been sitting in my humidor for 3 years or so. As such, there was no pepper to speak of as some reviews suggest, it was very smooth and mellow. It had some really nice wood and nut flavors that came and went. However, it was nothing in the way of a flavor explosion, so if you can find them, pick up a fiver and smoke them early in the day.
I smoked what appeared to be a toro size.
The long-awaited Illusione Nosotros blend was released in 2009 in a joint venture between Jonathan Drew from Drew Estate and Dion Giolito from Illusione Cigars. These cigars are rolled in Drew Estate’s factory in Esteli, Nicaragua. They come in eight vitolas with the Robusto been the subject of today’s review.
