Default my first Illusione

Let me first start out by saying that after many trial and errors and occasional sick bellies I have discovered that I am a mild/medium to medium cigar smoker. After recomendations from fellow brothers I purchased a 5 pk of the Illusione Epernay. The weather hit 50 today so I went out and lit one up. On light up I noticed some spice starting and I prefer creamy to spicey so I thought " oh no ", but it soon settled down to a very slight spice and I was very happy. I would say that this cigar is on the higher end of medium but nothing over powering and was a very good tasty stick. I would say that it is full flavor with a medium body. For those medium smokers like myself who would rather creamy then spicey but would like a meaty cigar after a nice steak dinner that you can handle I would recomend this stick. Granted I had the smaller stick but I will definetlly keep some of these in the humi.

I recently found that I have similar tastes as well. I'll give one of these a try. I had a San Cristobal Seleccion del Sol the other day and really enjoyed it. You may want to consider giving one a try. I found it to have a bit of spice, medium bodied and full flavored.
