Cuchillos Cubanos ~40~ (Short Ashes)

Cuchillos Cubanos 40 - 1

A little ways back, our very own Jerry Cruz reviewed a value line cigar produced by Dion Giolito of Illusione Cigars. That cigar was the Cuchillos Cubanos ~40~, and ever since I’ve been interested in giving it a try.

Due to lack of availability locally, and my very limited online purchasing history as of late, the Cuchillos Cubanos line has eluded me. That is, until Mike (KnightRid) was kind enough to pick me up an assortment of Illusione product from Gettysburg Cigar Company.

Being eager to try this new value line, I didn’t allow them to rest long before firing up my first, of two samples. While I didn’t feel that the stick was overly special, it was a decent smoke none the less. With a modest price of under $20.00 for a box of five, this is a great way to try a side-project of the highly popular, boutique, Illusione brand.
