Illusione Cruzado is one of the new lines by Dion Giolito and Arsenio Ramos, creators of the very successful Illusione line of cigars. Cruzado is a firm, medium bodied cigar, manufactured in the Raices Cubanas factory in Honduras using a blend of Nicaraguan and Honduran fillers, A Nicaraguan binder and rolled in a Nicaraguan Criollo wrapper. For the smoker who prefers something a little milder, Curzados are not as strong or full flavored as the original Illusione brand. Giolito, in an interview with Blog of the Leaf, said that "Whereas Illusione is a corojo blend with one component of criollo, Cruzado is a criollo blend with one component of corojo. Illusione exhibits an earthy sweetness in the olfactory sense. The profile of Cruzado is more forward on the palate with leather and spice". They are available in six different sizes.
