Illusione Epernay Le Taureau Cigar Review – This 5.5×56 stick features a dark brown, firmly packed box pressed wrapper with a dry slightly toothy feel, triple cap and sweet manure and hay aroma. First light reveals a perfect draw with plumes of medium-full smoke showing notes of a zesty cinnamon, sweet floral, pepper and spice with a bit of cocoa all lasting through the long finish. The first third burns very well with a slow progression, body down to a medium but holds on to the complex blend and long finish. The 1/2 way point comes at 45 minutes adding a sweet bready note to the still complex and smooth blend with perfect construction. Ending at 1:45 the last third kept slowing down with still a slow perfect smoke, going to a smooth creamy earth with some nutmeg and spice through the finish.
