Illusione Haut 10 Churchill Cigar Review
Illusione Haut 10 Churchill Cigar Review - This 6.75x48 stick features a dark brown oily, firmly packed satin wrapper with slight tooth, pigtailed triple cap and a nutty cocoa aroma. First light reveals a great draw with thick chewy plumes of full bodied smoke showing a deep dark earth, fire cured notes on the draw with a black pepper and building heat through the long finish. The first third shifts to a slightly sweet coca and nogat still with the heavy rich flavors but a lot less smoke, while the finish still has pepper and spice notes but tamed down quite a bit. The 1/2 way point comes at a slow 1 hour with notes down to a medium body adding just a bit of creamy texture to the already smooth flavors. The finish is mellowed a bit dropping most of the spics. Ending at 1:45 the last third brought a touch of strength but no flavor changes.
