Illusione Cigars Cuchillos Cubanos ~ 46 ~ | Cigar Review by Kaplowitz

"Have you Kaplowitz'd to-day?"

Illusione Cuchillos Cubanos ~ 46 ~
WRAPPER: Nicaraguan
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan

FORMAT: 4.5x46
ORIGIN: Honduras
STRENGTH: Medium-Full


NOTES: Charred oak, walnuts (shells), espresso beans. Rigidly-so & braced like bracing is going outta style by a black peppercorn. Smooths some w/ the intro of a creme brulee. Beans get ground/poured into a nice 'nuff drink. Finish is a bit abrasive (body) in the final half but thru-out is a peppery Cuban coffee in a wooden mug.

Big up&down notes of "Brown sugar, babe. Get high off your love..." D'Angelo. I once made a kid to that song. True story.

Burns on an even line yet at somewhat of an uneven pace. Ash don't build (mixed filler). Draws nice and smooth. Consistent & moderate smoke both passively & aggressively.

"The Cuchillos Cubanos is Illusione’s budget smoke, much like the Tatuaje Series P or the Padron 2000. Each cigar is a 60/40 blend of long and medium filler, albeit is still hand rolled, ..." (Brooks Whittington, 2009)
