The flavors packed into the L’Anniversaire Cameroon Robusto are excellent. It has a nice dose of complexity and is very smooth overall. A good amount of sweetness kicks things off. This transitions to coffee in the second third. A bit of spice comes in, as do notes of wood. The final flavor is rich chocolate. In terms of strength, the cigar stays in the medium-bodied range throughout.

It may have not been impressive at first glance, but once the CAO L’Anniversaire Cameroon Robusto was lit, things changed in a hurry. The burn was excellent, and the flavors were even better. The cigar never had a dull moment and was very smooth. Its smoothness and combination of flavors make it seem like the perfect mate for a cup of coffee in the morning. The Robusto sells for around $7. It's not cheap, but you are getting a quality cigar out of the deal. You can also find it in packs of ten or boxes of 20. If you do not want to spring for a bulk purchase, at least purchase a single. The cigar is quite good, and you will not regret it, especially if you are looking for a new Cameroon-wrapped cigar to try.

The CAO L’Anniversaire Cameroon Robusto earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

The Epernay line from Illusione was originally released in 2008. Named after a region of France known for champagne, the Epernay was modeled after the ECCJ, a limited cigar released to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the European Cigar Cult Journal.

The Le Petite is the smallest offering in the Epernay line. It measures 4 ½ x 44. There are various sizes in the Epernay line, including the 5 ¼ x 48 Le Ferm, the 5 ¾ x 40 Le Elegance, the 6 x 46 Le Grande, the 6 ¼ x 52 Le Monde, and the 6 ¾ x 46 Le Matin. The cigar's interior contains Nicaraguan Criollo and Corojo tobaccos. It is finished off with a high grade Cafe Rosado wrapper. The Epernay's strength is medium to full-bodied.
