Illusione Ultra OP No. 9 (Toro)

COVID-19 Day 308:

Box-Pressed, BP Toro, Dion Giolito, Illusione Cigars, Illusione Ultra, Nicaragua, Nicaraguan Corojo, Ultra OP No. 9 Today was my first time with the Illusione Ultra OP No. 9 (Toro) and I became an instant fan!

The luscious chewy smoke from the Ultra OP No. 9 definitely put this cigar in the “Favorites” category having hit most of my flavor checkboxes… I can’t wait to smoke this again!

From the first Perfect-Draw came toasty earthy tobacco flavors and a touch of dark chocolate and leather. I had to make a couple of touchups on the burn, but other than that, the Ultra OP No. 9 is probably going to be a staple in the Cigar Rotation.
