Dion Giolito, the man behind the highly sought after Illusione cigars and Cruzado cigars, has created the Illusione Epernay. The Illusione Epernay pays tribute to the famous Epernay region in France, the Capital of Champagne, and has been blended to pair perfectly with a glass of champagne.
The Illusione Epernay originally debuted in 2008 through the e c c j 15th Anniversary limited release. From this blend, Epernay has been made with a combination of Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo tobaccos. The Illusione Epernay is finished with a superior-grade Café Rosado wrapper.
The Epernay blend is very complex and perfectly balanced treating the palate to hints of coffee and honey, further enhanced through a floral room note, and a long creamy finish. A true masterpiece, The Illusione Epernay is a sublime experience and worthy of a place among the best of the best.
Wrapper: Nicaraguan Rosado

Great to find this cigar again. For me it was only available in Reno NV and the cigar lounge there was not able to ship. So it is with great delight I find the Corona Cigar Co.!
Medium but mild - smoothest cigar out there!, 29th Apr 2015

I was introduced to Illusione just recently by a great cigar shop, P. J.'s in Oxford, Mississippi. What a great cigar - I like mild, but medium and interesting flavor. This cigar is the best I have ever smoked! Highly recommend it, if you like cigars that are mild, but are actually medium complexity!
