Illusione Cigars Garagiste
This cigar had a very smooth and seamless wrapper with a noticeably oily sheen and a nice deep-reddish brown color. A very smooth draw allowed for generous amounts of full flavored, creamy textured smoke through to the palate. It had a medium body with a slow build to full as the cigar was enjoyed. An outstanding burn held on to a long, dark gray ash. White peppery spices were noticed in the aroma and when retro-haling the smoke through the nose. This was a very well balanced full cigar that intensified in both flavor and body strengths as it was smoked. There were a lot of spice and wood traits in the flavors and a very slight sweet edge on the back end of each puff. More earthy notes developed and lingered on the finish. A very, spicy full flavored cigar.
