At this year’s 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Illusione Cigars added a sixth vitola to its Fume D’Amour line. This one was a classic 5 5/8 x 46 Corona Gorda known as the Illusione Fume D’Amour.
The name Fume D’Amour means “to love smoke”, the Illusione Fume D’Amour made its debut at the 2014 IPCPR Trade Show. Fume D’Amour is a Nicaraguan puro. The blend is utilizes no ligero primings, but instead incorporates lower priming viso and seco leaves exposited to more sunlight – resulting in a more robust flavor.The cigar is made at Casa Fernandez’s Tabacos Valle de Jalapa S.A (TABSA) factory in Esteli, Nicaragua and utilizes Casa Fernandez’s AGANORSA tobacco in the blend.
Four sizes were launched in 2014. Last year, a fifth size – a lancero known as Juniperos was added.
