Illusione Rothchildes 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!
One of the latest released from Dion Giolotto's Illusione brand, the "r" Rothschild is a 4 1/2 x 50 sized Petit Robusto / Rothschild. The blend features all Nicaraguan Aganorsa leaf filler and binder and is encased in a Mexican San Andreas wrapper. The cigar has a rustic look, with the wrapper cocoa brown with a mottled marblized look to it. For a cigar under $, it is extremely complex and offers a wide variety of flavor. Initially spice and a unique floral note, giving way to sweetness and a rich earthy flavor that only Aganorsa leaf can provide. Very satisfying and in the medium body strength range, the new Illusione r Rothschild is hard to beat for the price!
