    Illusione Epernay Le Elegance Dog Walk Review No. 4

    First off this cigar is honestly a little large at 5.75 x 40 for a normal dog walk. But it was a nice sunny day and this smoke was calling my name.

    On to the review of the Illusione Epernay Le Elegance.
    Before pic:


    Initial Impressions
    -Beautiful Light Reddish Brown Wrapper with a triple cap
    -Sweet Cedar Aroma with at touch of earthy tobacco
    -Simple elegant band

    First Half
    -Opens with cedar and cream
    -After the first 1/2 inch rich chocolate and sweet tobacco creep in
    -Ash is firm and light grey
    -Sweet apple cinnamon spice as added itself to the profile as I near the second half

    Second Half
    -I'm now getting allot of milk chocolate, I keep wanting to take a bite!
    -Amazingly smooth almost no bite at all
    -Cedar is getting a bit stronger towards the last 1/3

    Conclusion
    -Faintest amount of white pepper began to appear towards the nub
    -Didn't want it to end, dog was trying to go home but I was still puffin!
    -Mild for the most part but crept up to almost medium

    I give this awesome smoke a 93. It was just smooth, cedar and chocolate goodness.

    And that's why I enjoy the epernay line. The flavor profile is delicious! Solid cigar, glad you enjoyed the smoke!

    Great review! I haven't tried a Le Elegance yet but the Le Petite is a favorite of mine. I'll have to grab one on my next buying spree
