Month in Review: (Volume 1, Issue 2)
January 2015 Highlights
Easily the best cigar I have smoked in the month of February and the 2015 year, the illusione ~eccj~ 20th is a fantastic release, and one that I have been waiting for patiently. This Short Churchill is a fantastic size, and I believe it is a size that shows the best of both worlds. The 48 ring gauge is the perfect ring gauge for balance between wrapper and filler, and with the length of 6 1/2", you are getting this "improved toro" vibe. The Nicaraguan tobacco is used perfectly in the cigar, and the Corojo Cafe Rosado wrapper is used brilliantly over the entire blend. The 20th blend is based off of the ~eccj~ 15th, which is the basis for the Epernay blend, but what makes this particular smoke superior to the Epernay is the amped up body and strength that comes with the cigar. Worthy of a box and then some, the ~eccj~ 20th is a cigar you should not pass on. There is a reason this cigar got a 94 rating.
