Illusione Candela


Description

It’s Easy Being Green When You’re This Tasty

Candela cigars are bit of an oddity these days, in fact - they can be downright difficult to find if you don’t know where to look - especially a candela as complex as Illusione’s. 

Blended with Nicaraguan Criollo ‘98 and Corjo '99 long-fillers and wrapped with a beautiful green Candela wrapper, this cigar is like nothing you’ve had before. It’s got some impressive floral notes with twinges of leather and a naturally sweet nuance. Mellow to medium-bodied and totally delicious, this is one Candela I’d enjoy anytime anywhere.

Do not rush this experience, as it is an very slow even burning true Candela experience; Every puff has an easy draw yielding generous amounts of smoke that does not irritate the eyes and the tip does not smolder; Consistent flavors and aroma throughout that of mellow to medium notes of natural wood, earth, and wild grasses, accented off and on with subtle notes of both light leather and tingles of white pepper; Light aftertastes of the same barely linger afterwards; The last third starts to lean toward bold medium and is richer in flavor and aroma while still retaining consistency; No bite throughout; The entire stick lasted well over two and one half hours! I like to enjoy this cigar when I want to totally relax for long periods of time without any cigar aftermath what-so-ever; This gem ages in an dedicated White Tail Glass Top Humidor all by its self; Humidor: 73% @ 83.2F;

Very grassy flavor. Unique to say the least. The flavor gets better on the last third.

Save some frustration and money, go with La Flor Dominican Double Claro ---all over better! The poor Illusione had great flavor, but awful construction.

This is a nice smoke, if you want something mellow with a simple flavor profile. This cigar taste like I'm having a big cup of green tea. The green tea flavor profile is so strong, that if there are other nuisances to this cigars my palate doesn't recognize them. Since this is an extremely acquired taste, I'd recommend buying this in small quantities to see if you like it.

Excellent cigar. This is what a true double claro is supposed to be. Very mild body with slightly sweet flavors of grass, green tea and cane. So many candelas taste like burning grass and front lawn leaves that they give candelas a bad reputation. This one hits it right out of the park. Other than the slightly uneven burning, these are a fantastic stick. If you want to try a true double claro, these are one of the sticks you should start with. If they would burn more even, I'd give it 5 stars. But definitely worth 5 stars for flavor alone.
