Illusione Epernay Le Petite Cigar Review
This 4.5×44 sungrown stick offers a dark brown satin wrapper with slight tooth and oil sheen, very firm construction, a triple cap, small veins, tight seams and a very mild chocolate aroma. First light reveals an almost effortless draw, plenty of thick rich smoke output with mild-medium flavors of a very smooth oily and slick slightly sweet dry tobacco taste and a short clean finish. The first third brings up the strength a good bit pushing full, with flavors just going to a very parched, dry tobacco with a long finish. 25 minutes in just past the 1/2 way point, a creamy coffee starts to build while the body ramps up to join the strength level at medium-full, also growing the finish and adding a bit of pepper zing. Ending at 35 minutes to the warm nub, the last bit showed no further transitions. Thank you again to our fan HappyTaro for providing this for review!
