Just prior to the 2016 IPCPR Trade Show, Illusione Cigars announced its Cruzado line was getting an makeover. The new revamped Cruzado line remains a Nicaraguan puro, but now features a streamlined set of sizes, and new packaging.
The Illusione Cruzado is a Nicaraguan puro featuring a Nicaraguan Corojo 99 Rosado wrapper over Nicaraguan Corojo and Criollo tobaccos. The line has been streamlined to four sizes: Short Robusto, Robusto, Gordo, and Churchill. The sizes are new except for the Gordo which is the same size as the old Domenicos Extra. The cigars are packaged in 20 count boxes.
In addition, Cruzado features a new logo and new bands.
At a glance, here is a look at the Illusione Cruzado:
