Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta

Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d'Aosta

Ten years after Illusione first introduced smokers to the French-inspired Epernay cigar, the company has prepared a special rendition of the fan-favorite blend to commemorate the milestone 10th anniversary. The cigar at hand has been dubbed Illusione Epernay 10th Anniversary d’Aosta, being named for the Valle d'Aosta region that borders both France and Italy. This ties into the Epernay series, as Epernay is the primary Champagne-producing region of France; alternatively, Illusione owner, Dion Giolito, traces his family roots to the Northern Italy region.

The Illusione Epernay came about in 2009, made as a spinoff of Illusione's critically acclaimed ~eccj~ limited-edition cigar. Epernay set itself apart through a notable exclusion of ligero tobaccos (a high-priming leaf typically used to add strength to a cigar) within the blend. Giolito sought to focus on soft and delicate complexities, forgoing body and strength in an attempt to provide the ideal pairing with Champagne.

With Epernay 10th Anniversary d’Aosta, the blend has been tweaked slightly, showcasing an altered binder ingredient within the cigar's all-Nicaraguan recipe. The cigars have been rolled in a singular, limited-edition 6" x 50 toro format, providing Giolito's ideal smoking experience for the given blend. The results are unsurprisingly magnificent, providing a soft and mild-mannered body and a focus on fine-tuned complexities. This includes a myriad of flavors on every puff—a smoke that begs to be retrohaled fully on each and every draw. Expect to find characteristics of oily butter, citrus, light-roast coffee, sweet cream cheese, and browned butter, among many others.
