Illusione Epernay Serie 2009

The Illusione Epernay Serie 2009 was introduced in 2008 as a limited release for European Cigar Cult Journal. As it garnered high ratings it became a regular offering for the Illusione brand, created by Dion Giolito, a Nevada retailer. With its combination of Criollo and Corojo tobaccos, and a superior Cafe Rosado wrapper, the Epernay is floral, creamy and complex. This boutique cigar is made with all Nicaraguan tobaccos at the famous Raices Cubanas factory. The cigar has earned #3 on Cigar Aficionado's Best Cigars of 2011 listing.

CUSTOMER'S REVIEWS
About: Illusione Epernay Le Taureau 5"1/2 * 56
Great flavor. I tend to see some draw issues with these. Much more draw issues with the longer sticks though.
About: Illusione Epernay Le Matin 6"1/2 * 46
I have a quite a few of these in this length with very tight draws. If I had it to do over, I would've bought a box of shorter sticks. Usually if I'm going to spend one hour plus on a cigar, I would go for something a little nicer. They do have great flavor.
About: Illusione Epernay Le Taureau 5"1/2 * 56
Maybe I got a bad one. I stored it correctly in my humidor for over 3 months after buying - but mine had extremely uneven burn issues that never corrected itself and the draw was so loose it was like sucking air through a straw. I had to manually try to correct the burn quite a few times, but it came right back. I had to re-light once. The flavor was nice and balanced - no pepper and no spice, so if you like mild this is great. But with the burn and draw issues, there are too many others in the price range.
About: Illusione Epernay Le Taureau 5"1/2 * 56
One of the best cigars I ever had.
About: Illusione Epernay Le Elegance 5"3/4 * 40
Nice dried fruit flavor with no bitterness. But the burn was horrendous on this. It kept tunneling and going out. Maybe I got a bad one, I may try another because the flavor was good.
About: Illusione Epernay L'Alpiniste 6"3/4 * 56
By far one of my favorite sticks. Taste is superb and aroma is even better. One of my go to cigars for any occasion.
About: Illusione Epernay Le Taureau 5"1/2 * 56
A well balanced cigar for those that aren't into spicy or strong flavor. In my opinion this cigar should have tied with the La Aroma in Cigar Aficianado's Top 25 2011 but both are great and are both currently in my humidor.
