Debuting at last year’s 2014 IPCPR trade show, Illusione revealed the new Fume D’Amour. This cigar was of particular interest, as it would be the brand’s first core lineup release in three years! Critics took notice straight away, with Fume D’Amour winning multiple year-end awards, including Cigar Dojo’s #6 cigar of the year. This cigar reverses the trend of today’s cigar market, opting to use no ligero, making for a more mellow experience – focusing instead on finesse and delicate complexities.
