Illusione Maduro uses a Mexican San Andres over all Nicaraguan binders and fillers. The profile is a rich and sweet experience offering the classic chocolate and cacao from the Mexican wrapper leaf. The Nicaraguan tobaccos utilized offer flavors like brown sugar, leather, earth, oak, and a smokey meaty finish. The blend sits a medium+ profile. It may look like a heater, and while the flavors are strong the strength will not overwhelm you.
