Illusione Epernay Le Petite

Illusione Epernay Le Petite

Stopped in @CigarEmporiumHouston and picked up the @Illusione_Cigars Epernay Le Petite to enjoy with an espresso.

The Epernay is a Nicaraguan puro with a shade grown Corojo ’99 wrapper, and is produced in the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras. The smooth, chocolate brown wrapper is silky to the touch, with a flawless construction, almost no veins, all topped by a perfect triple cap.

Lighting produces an impressive volume of smoke, and flavors of pepper, leather, wood and sweetness leading the way. A mild-medium bodied profile, it carries a gentle bouquet to the palate, producing a finish both light and creamy, with woodiness and tea joining the flavors. No problems with burn line or ash.

Overall, a great cigar. With a gorgeous wrapper, an effortless burn, and a complex, but mild-bodied flavor profile, the Epernay allows for a pleasant, calm experience of all it has to offer, without overwhelming the senses. I rate it a 90.
