One simple word to describe the CG4 would be consistent.  There isn’t a ton of complexity, but the flavors that are there are quite pleasant.  The familiar chocolate flavor is noticeable right off the bat.  Further into the first third comes some sweetness.  The cigar's strength kicks up a notch in the second third with the introduction of some spice.  I also notice some coffee at this point.  The final third finishes things up with chocolate and an interesting raisin flavor.

It's not much of a surprise that the CG4 Maduro is a quality cigar.  Illusione has made a name for itself with other respected offerings, and the CG4 is no different.  The CG4 Maduro passed the test in all phases, and I would easily recommend it to experienced smokers seeking a solid smoking experience.  Definitely give it a shot if you are a Maduro fan or enjoy Illusione cigars in general.  A single sells for $8 to $9, and you can also find it in packs of five or boxes of 25.  I’d at least spring for a pack of five to keep handy.

The Illusione CG4 Maduro earns a rating of 3.5 out of four stars. 

Emilio AF Suave Robusto

If you enjoy boutique cigars, then Emilio Cigars may be right up your alley.  The AF Suave line is the third from the brand that was developed with the help of AJ Fernandez and it was created with fans of mild cigars in mind.  With such a background, it’s no wonder why they chose Suave as the cigar’s moniker.  It’s worth noting that the AF Suave marks the first time the brand has used a Connecticut wrapper.  Is this cigar good enough to make it into my rotation of mild smokes?  Let’s light one up and see.

The AF Suave Robusto measures 5 x 50.  The cigar’s filler and binder are unknown.  What I do know is that it’s highlighted by the aforementioned Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade wrapper.   As I said before, the Suave is a smooth cigar that falls into the mild-bodied category of strength.
