Limited editions can break your heart.
Just like the One that Got Away, they come into your life, light it up with a flame that burns so bright you’d swear you have your very own sun… and then disappear, leaving you feeling colder than ever before.
A great limited edition cigar is similar.
It hits your lips and immediately you fall in love from the first draws. You forget all about every other cigar you’ve got tucked away in your humidor. All the highly rated smokes; all the intriguing sticks you’ve been looking forward to… it all falls away while you enjoy the new hotness. You can’t get enough of the blend. You’d swear this was the last smoke you need for the rest of your life. The flavors on all your other cigars just feel… off. This is what you’re into. You want to smoke them all the time! But then, you finally come to the end of your supply, and that’s where the tragedy lies.
You log in to Cigars Direct to order more, or head down to your smoke shop only to find that your new favorite smoke is gone. The production run is over. No one has any more and they don’t know when they’ll be getting any. At most, you can try to trade with people or look for expensive lots being sold somewhere online, or at auctions. But what’s the use? You’re chasing a fleeting memory. No matter what you do, those cigars have disappeared over the horizon.
So it was with the Illusione Cigares Privé.
But no more. This cigar is back and here to stay! (Until it’s gone again, of course *diabolical laughter*.)
Inside the cigar, you’ll get a classic Illusione’s Nicaraguan long-filler blend: Criollo '98 and Corojo '99, comprised of viso and ligero. Then you’ve got two wrapper options: a spicy Mexican San Andrés leaf and a Rosado Corojo. The San Andrés version is earthier, with flavors of coffee, oak, and pepper. The Rosado Corojo cigar dials it back a bit on the spice in favor of cocoa, leather, and cedar. Body is medium to full, and the overall character that made this so tasty the first time around is still there in all its glory. Enjoy!
