Rothchildes Connecticut by Illusione Cigars

07/14/2019
As Connecticut wrapped cigars go these days, this is one of few that deliver more than typical “mild” flavors.

Coffee, graham cracker, wood, and leather is how this fine Illusione Rothchildes expresses itself to me this morning.

A delicious way to start my day; I’m glad I choose to start with this today.

Smoking this hour-long cigar brought me a smooth creamy journey with some cocoa and pepper along the way.

It’s been way too long since I’ve smoke one of these. Today’s the day!

Wow! I don’t know why I don’t smoke the Illusione Rothchildes Connecticut more often. I haven’t smoked one of these since last October (2018).

It’s a super smooth, aromatic first cigar of the day and I’m lovin’ it. This has to get back into my regular rotation.

Once lit, creamy buttered toast with a touch of pepper spice on the retrohale.

At just past the halfway point, approaching the last third, flavors of wood (oak) ramp up with a smooth finish. As long as I can control the frequency of my puffs, the better the Illusione Rothchildes behaves. The more aggressive I puff the bitter flavors have a chance to come into being… I don’t want that!

I will be making sure this gets back into my rotation, especially with better weather around the corner. this could become my golfing cigar.

Smoke time, one-hour for this smallish cigar.
