Illusione Gigantes Cigars

Illusione is a small boutique brand that has earned the distinction as the #7 cigar in Cigar Aficionado's Top 25 Cigars of 2007. Dion Giolito, the creator of Illusione cigars, wanted to re-create a specific taste profile from years past.

Before the Sandinistas took over Nicaragua in 1979, Nicaragua was growing some of the best tobaccos in the world. The cigars made from these prized fields in the Jalapa Valley and Esteli region were strong, bold and clean. After years of neglect, these old Somoza fields have been re-cultiviated by the legendary master grower Arsenio Ramos of Cuba. Along with Fernano, Chandito and famed Cuban agronomist Jacinto, Arsenio has assembled the varitable “dream team” of tobacco production.

They have re-grown these humble acres to yield their best tobaccos once again. All Illusione cigars are made in the premier Raices Cubanas factory from first generation Corojo ’99, Criollo ’98 seeds, wrapped with a grade one Café Colorado wrapper, and finished with a traditional triple cap. Illusione cigars deliver a taste and a quality of smoke rarely found in today’s market. All of Illusione cigars are made in small-batch quantities to maintain quality and consistency. They also make excellent cigars for aging!
A wonderful new cigar from Illusione created almost identically in packaging and branding and also in the same factory as the wildly popular Illusione R Rothchildes. Also available in 50 count cabinets, the G Gigante is a 6 1/2 x 56 Gran Toro with a Mexican San Andreas Wrapper and Nicaraguan Fillers. Not just simply a larger version of the Illusione R Rothchildes the Gigantes uses Criollo 98 (Estelí) and Corojo 99 (Jalapa) binders and AGANORSA filler leaves and is said to be kicked up a notch in the strength department. This is a regular production release, and just like the R Rothchildes, has an amazing pricetag.
