A classic looking corona, this cigar had a creamy brown colored wrapper.  The pre-light nose was clean and light with dry cedar-like notes on the taste.  The draw had a very slight resistance and was incredibly smooth overall delivering a lot of smoke to the palate with ease.  There were spicy pepper notes when retro-haling the smoke with a slight bit of spice in the taste through the finish.  The aroma was light yet rich with sweet and spicy tones, with traces of cedar, mild earth and hay-like traits.  Spices lingered on the palate the more the cigar was smoked.  It had a lot of character and flavor with a medium body.  The burn was slow and even which produced a long dark gray ash.  This was an effortless cigar to enjoy that had a lot of spice, flavor and a very pleasant aroma.  Overall this was an easy to enjoy cigar that didn’t overwhelm the palate yet delivered a satisfying experience.   It was fairly complex, developing as it was smoked, with an intensifying flavor profile and aroma.

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.
Very good smoke. Smooth and creamy.
