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.

It was just ok. I expected more for the price but I was underwhelmed.
Too much hype Expensive
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.
