Illusione ONEOFF

Review:
At the outset, from the first cold through almost the entire first Third, I found a sweet aroma and an almost bakery like quality. There was a notable sweetness you could pick up on your tounge and the spicy flavor I normal expect from an Illusione didn’t really materialize. The second Third also had that baked goods, bakery kitchen flavor but I could begin to pick up the pepper shortly into it. The bakery flavor as I describe it reminded me a great deal of a Cuban Romeo y Julieta Petite Corona. It’s a sort of bread like flavor that is unique and makes the experience fantastic. I would have happily given this cigar a 4.5 or even a 5 but the final Third really took away from my overall enjoyment. There was a harshness that was really unexpected. While I expected a strong pepper and spicy finish, the oneOFF has a bit too many harsh tones for me.

I throughly enjoyed this Smoke and happlily bought a box. It’s got an incredibly rich flavor to it with notes of coffee, coco and a sweet/sugary after taste. It’s odd that the cold draw has more of an earthy flavor to it and it left me expecting an earthy tone one I lit it. The sugary coffee tones that came from the first puffs almost had me baffled but were a great surprise. It maintains pretty much the same through the second Third and finishes off with a balanced amount of white pepper, earth and spice. This is an excellent and I believe, very underrated and fault obscure blend.

Truly a fantastic addition to a family of cigars that was already stellar. I was a huge fan of the torpedo and I’m an even bigger fan of this Lancero. The grain scent that comes from the cold draw remains in the first hot draw as well. Like the Torpedo, this lancero has the same great mix of Black Pepper while still remaining sweet. Fantastic Cigar!

I was fortunate enough to get a hold on one these at the Great Smoke 2019 in West Palm Beach FL as part of my admission package. Everything you would expect from Nat Sherman although I felt it was a little less complex then I other cigars I’ve had from Nat Sherman. That being said it still provided a consistent profile, excellent burn ( no corrections) and a smooth and consistent draw throughout.

Ok, let me first make it clear that I’m a HUGE DT&T fan and admirer of Steve Saka. The Sin Compromiso is one of my favorite cigars of the past 5 years. Boldly complex, amazing construction and burn and a deep and rich flavor profile that really makes you anticipate what flavors this cigar will produce next. Really should have rated it 5 but I tend to understate things.

Ok, this one I’ll give a 5 to. I can’t think of many cigars that quietly entered the market and literally exploded in popularity. Much less a Smoke then an experience. One of the most complex cigars I’ve ever smoked and as someone who prefers deeper, richer and evolving complexity...this cigar is as close to perfect as it gets
