The Illusione 888 “Necessary & Sufficient” is a Nicaraguan puro Churchill created by Dion Giolito. The name of the cigar is a testament to Giolito’s Christian faith. The number 888 is a numerological representation of the name of Christ. “‘Necessary and Sufficient’ both describes the balance and profile of the cigar,” explains Giolito on his website. “It also represents to not go wanting. He is all I need, He is necessary and sufficient.” The Illusione brand may not be the most globally famous cigar brand, but it still has quite a following, and for good reason. Illusione cigars have a reputation for quality, and the 888 is no exception.

The Nat Sherman brand has been around for a long time, ever since the Nat Sherman store first opened up in 1930 in New York City. The store has changed location over the intervening years, but it is still a big name in NYC. Nat Sherman has always been better known for their cigarettes than for their cigars, however, and they have been through some difficult times. But the brand made a come back with several releases like the Nat Sherman Timeless Collection blend. I decided to try the elegant torpedo (No. 2) for myself to see how it measured up to its strong reputation.

So, if you’re a regular at keeping up with all of the online cigar blogs you’ve probably already come across many reviews of the Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial. There have been lots of mixed reviews on this cigar, which personally I think is a good thing. We must remember that the art of cigar smoking is just that… an art. Some people’s trash is another’s treasure, and that is the beauty of this leisure. Since there has been so much rave about this cigar I decided to go ahead and voice my thoughts about the Tatuaje 7th Capa Especial.

Before we begin I want to make note that this cigar is actually rolled at the My Father cigar factory in Esteli, Nicaragua just like the rest of the Reserva brown label line (instead of in Miami), and the Capa Especial is carrying a Sumatra wrapper instead of Connecticut Broadleaf.
