The Illusione Haut 10 is a single 5 1/2 x 52 robusto extra using a Nicaraguan cafe claro AAA grade wrapper. Inside is a blend of Nicaraguan criollo 98 and corojo 99 that is described as “seco dominant” and the result of three sortings to get the best materials from AGANORSA.
Along with the Haut 10 came the new Illusione CT Rothchildes and Gigantes.
Trading the Mexican San Andrés wrapper for an Ecuadorian Connecticut both the Rothchildes and Gigantes keep the same binders and fillers of their original counterparts. Dion Giolito, founder of Illusione, claims the blend works so well that, even under the new wrappers, there’s not a thing he would change even if he wanted to. Having smoked them ourselves, we’re inclined to agree. The shiny new Connecticut wrapper makes for an incredible smoke.
