Wrapper: Nicaraguan Corojo
OP No. 4: 4 3/4 x 48
The Illusione Ultra is not only one of the most powerful cigars released by Illusione, but this is one powerhouse of a cigar line period. The ironic thing is many consider the MKUltra to be the more powerful cigar, but I couldn’t disagree more. I’d put the box-press OPs ahead of the MK any day.
The OP. 4 starts out with black cherry sweetness, cedar, and pepper spices. I found the sweetness dials back giving way to signature Illusione tea notes. Full strength and full-bodied.
For some reason though the OP series has always been frequently prone to Paul syndrome for me. This burn needed some TLC along the way.
Overall a good cigar and worth checking out.
