Illusione Cigars Singulare 2015 Miserere in Review "Like Sweat Dripping Down Our Dirty Laundry?"

“Have you Kaplowitz’d to-day?”

Illusione Cigars 
Singulare 2015 Miserere

WRAPPER: Nicaraguan Corojo
BINDER: Nicaraguan
FILLER: Nicaraguan Criollo 98 & Corojo 99

FORMAT: Churchill (6 3/4 x 48)
ORIGIN: Tabacos Valel de Jalapa S.A., Nicaragua


Sweet spices | Suede | Cocoa butter

Rich in a mellow fashion, well-rounded to overly cushy. Firm-curved corners & backbone via white peppercorn kicker. Black pepper finely-ground attachment. Spices are sweet & calming. A white clove & ginger. Slight paprika on the back-end. Cocoa butter steered sweetness which evolves to hold distinct & independent milk chocolate. Savory via suede earthiness, sweetly. Malty & musky. 

Undertones feature a dried apricot & papaya. Bing cherry. Golden hay. An apple tree vision. Smooth w/ the perfect amount of kick to stave off daydreaming, doodling. Focus is enforced by a light hand, sleight even. A lover with slow hands. Like sweat dripping down our dirty laundry? What?! Superb balance. Well-trained complexities. Sneaky-deep depths. Himalayan salt, I swears it. 

Orange blossom honey at the 1/2. But this is supposed to be the performance paragraph. Burns on an even line at a slow & even pacing. Builds firm 'nuff stack of dime ash. There's a lump or two on the shaft but no hard/soft spots. Zero weakening of pack or loosening of seams. Cap does dampen but draw remains even-keeled. Excellent smoke out-put of softly bright sweet spices.
