Illusione ~cg:4~ Candela  White Horse by Illusione Cigars

COVID-19 Day 360:
 Candela, Corona Gorda, Illusione ~cg:4~ Candela, Illusione Cigars, Nicaragua, White Horse If there were ever a Cigar Company or Cigar Brand that hit’s my “Sweet Spot” it would be Illusione Cigars as one of three or four of my favorite Cigar Brands and that would include some of their special blends like this outstanding ~cg:4~ Candela White Horse by Illusione Cigars. Originally known as the Illusione Kaplowitz Media Candela, this ~cg4~ becomes the fourth of Illusione’s Original Documents line of cigars to become translated into the Candela treatment and it’s another Winner although this ~cg:4~ Candela is not a regular production cigar but a special release only available through The Vault in Meridian, Idaho.

At first light, this Illusione ~cg:4~ Candela starts with a subdued “bang” of the usual Illusione tobacco flavors tamped down a bit due to the Candela wrapper that brings a slight grassy vegetal sweetness to the palate but with “More” than what you would expect from those “other” Candela wrapped cigars.

This cigar is a creamy dreamy cigar that delivers earthy, oaky, leather tobacco flavors that sit right in the middle of my flavor wheelhouse… this cigar like most Illusione Cigars is a winner!

I think it’s time to pursue a bunch of these soon!
