Do not judge a cigar by the cigar band. The simplistic throwback design of the Fume d’Amour Clementes by Illusione downplays the delightful experience awaiting you. And if you’re wondering, fume d’amour translates to love smoke. Tobacco and hay notes made for an earthy cold draw. Continuing the earthy theme, I tasted wood followed by oak in the opening puffs. Oak evolved into cedar near the midpoint, where spices joined the mix. The final third served up salted pretzel and caramel. Black pepper retrohales mingled well with the distinctive flavors.
