This cigar smoked with the spirit that the original Rothchildes did. A rustic, not so pretty looking cigar that provided full flavors and a great smoking experience at a low price point. It is definitely one I could see going back to often and another winner for Dion and the Illusione portfolio.
Typically, non-Cuban double robustos and double coronas have a tendency to be monotonous, leaving me quickly disengaged past the half way point. But this cigar kept me engaged the entire smoking experience with transitions and building complexities. Awesome cigar!
