Illusione Cigares Prive 2020 PCA Exclusive Event Cigar

 Ecuadorian Habano Claro, Esteli, Event Cigar, Illusione Cigares Prive, Illusione Cigares Prive 2020 PCA Exclusive, Nicaragua Today was my inaugural cigar journey with the NEW Cigares Prive 2020 PCA Exclusive by Illusione Cigars. The Cigares Prive 2020 was supposed to be introduced at this year’s PCA Event… we know what happened to that… (if you’re reading this in the future, we had a pandemic in 2020.)

Ya know, you never know for certain until you spark it up… I’ve become a huge fan of Illusione’s Cigares Prive line of cigars. When this was made available I knew I had to smoke it and I’m glad I did.

What followed after I fired this cigar up were delicious creamy smooth, chewy smoke that kept me company for two hours while I sat and enjoyed this without any distractions… I’m loving this line of cigars… now I wonder if I have a favorite?
