The burn line is razor-sharp! The finish is very complex with flavors of creamy honey, oak, earthy tobacco flavors, baking spices, and some black pepper.

I can’t believe I haven’t smoked an Illusione Fume D’Amour since last year!

Returning from convalescing, this is pretty much my first cigar in two months; and a great way to come back.

I’m glad I choose this cigar for my first to smoke from my absence!

I’m smoking my last one today, so it’s time to order more.

Viso and Seco are tobaccos that come from the middle and lower thirds of a tobacco plant respectively and are what’s purported to be in this tobacco blend for Illusione’s Fume D’Amour cigar. These particular leaves that while both offer flavor, they are not as strong generally as the higher-priming counterpart, ligero.

Punch-cut and a light and black pepper make themselves known via my nose but not my palette, overall this is a smooth start and I expect the same throughout. This is probably my fourth or fifth Fume D’Amour. Do I taste green apples?

Thick creamy smoke is why I love this cigar… every time.

At the last third, Oak is taking over with pepper still on the retrohale and I’m enjoying this last cigar in my inventory.

Until next time
