Illusione cigar line names often reference concepts that are mystical, religious, or based on “conspiracy theories.” Of course, no catalogue of conspiracy theories is complete without mentioning the Rothchilds, a wealthy family of German origin known for its ancient financial empire and considerable global influence. Whether you think they run the world or not, you’ve probably heard the name and associate it with being mega rich. So, is this one of the world’s most expensive cigars?
Ironically, this cigar is not only for the fabulously wealthy. In fact, it’s squarely in the normal range for premium smokes.
There are two versions of the Illusione Rothchildes cigar. The first features a nice dark “Capa Rustica” Mexican San Andreas wrapper, while the second is an Ecuadorian Connecticut shade leaf. Inside both is a mixture of Nicaraguan Criollo '98 and Corojo '99. Fans of Illusione will recognize one of the company’s signature filler blends, and the complex, medium-bodied smoke it provides.
The San Andres wrapped version puts out flavors of pepper, espresso, and a hint of dried cherries, while the Connecticut still has some woody spice, but tends to exhibit a creaminess you won’t find in the dark Rothchildes cigar. It’s a decent smoke to draw on while you try to figure out how to get to the top of the heap. Our tip if you want to make big bucks? Start with a few billion dollars. Should be easy after that.
