When Illusione cigars founder Dion Giolito set up, his appraoch was clear: to “do the opposite from everyone else in the industry.” And that’s a goal he's certainly accomplished- from the blends themselves to the leftfield packaging. One of their biggest innovations was introducing the concept of “full-flavor, medium-bodied” cigars, something taken up by other cigar brands.
From the Cruzado, a dark cigar with a belicoso tip that boasts plenty of toasty woody flavors with a hint of salt combined with a hickory-smoked sweetness receiving a 91-pint rating to the Fume D'Amour, an impressive 95-rating for its superb balanced flavor, Illusione cigars are a premium choice whcih we exclusively import into Malaysia.

Illusione Epernay Seire 2009 Le Ferme Robusto Cigars are part of a beautiful series of cigars crafted by Dion Giolito under his Illusione banner. Originally made in small batches they become regular due to high demand. These cigars are made of Criollo and Corojo tobaccos which are enwrapped by a grade one caf̩ Rosado wrapper.
Illusione Ultra OP. NO. 4 Bench Pressed Robusto Cigars are recreated version of original mk Ultra blend which Dion Giolito felt was too strong. He blended this cigar with rich Nicaraguan tobaccos grown in the fertile soils of Esteli and Jalapa. They are secured in place by a Nicaraguan Corojo wrapper. This combination delivers a full bodied, full...
