I don't know Dion Giolito personally, but from what I can gather from reading and talking to people around the industry about him, is that he is truly a student of tobacco and cigars. As a lifelong fan of the brand, Giolito purchased OneOff back in 2017 with the intention of relaunching the brand with his own fingerprint and the brand's original ideology in mind. This undertaking was an instant success, and since its relaunch, OneOff has become a favorite of Illusione fans around the world (like myself).
A Nicaraguan puro crafted at AGANORSA, OneOff represents a real masterclass in blending. Medium to full-bodied and characterized by nuance and complexity, Illusione OneOff is as perfect to celebrate a long week of work as it is for your best friends wedding. Notes of cedar, cinnamon, and cashews are followed by the perfect amount of honey-like sweetness that will make you wondering why it took so long for you to smoke OneOff for the first time.
