 ~88~, Café Colorado, Dion Giliotto, Grade One, Illusione, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan, Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo, Original Documents, Robusto I know one thing for certain… I should smoke the Illusione Original Documents ~88~ (Robusto) by Illusione Cigars more than once every seven months! … What’s wrong with me?

The deep rich tobacco flavors provided by this Illusione Original Documents blend in this ~88~ (Robusto) capture me every time I spark one of these stellar cigars.

This is another example of a cigar that I should be smoking more often!

Until next time…

 ~88~, Café Colorado, Dion Giliotto, Grade One, Illusione, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan, Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo, Original Documents, Robusto You should know by now that these cigars are my jam!. So, I can’t believe that it’s been almost a year since I’ve smoked this Illusione Original Documents ~88~ (Robusto). Let’s get down to business and enjoy this stellar cigar!

Once lit… from great construction comes a perfect draw bringing earthy cocoa, and leather tobacco flavors with a black coffee finish… The retrohale is spot on for me with a mild pepper spice.

At the second third, the black coffee flavors have moved forward rounded out by the earthy leather tobacco flavors.

I don’t think there’s anything left for me to do but sit back and enjoy the rest of this excellent cigar! Until next time…

COVID-19 Cigar Walk, Day 95: 3.5-Mile Cigar
~88~, Café Colorado, Dion Giliotto, Grade One, Illusione, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan, Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo, Original Documents, Robusto Oh me, oh my… Illusione Cigars are fast becoming my “Go-To” brand when I’m rummaging through my TupperDor. However, this morning I knew exactly what I wanted… the Illusione Original Documents ~88~ in Robusto.

Deep rich tobacco flavors accompanied me on the last 3.5-Miles of my Cigar Walk trek this morning through a perfect smoky draw and for the most part a great burn needing only a couple of touchups considering that there was a slight breeze this morning… I think I could have made this a 4-Mile cigar… noted for next time.

The Illusione Original Documents ~88~ is fast becoming one of my favorites.
