A chubby Petite Corona Cigar thats a snapshot of a lot of the Cigars Dion makes. I first smoke this cigar 7 Years ago and it was a Home Run. It became the best Cigar to walk from 42nd to 66th during the summer Months. I remember having a cold during one of those summers and hadn’t smoked a cigar in over 2 weeks. Still stuffy I smoked it and it was one of the most memorable flavors I’ve ever encoded.
Dion is passionate about Numerology so a lot of his Cigars are associated with number. The 68 is nicknamed “El Bombone” or Bon Bon. This is due to the richness in its profile.
In this episode we talk about Dion and Illusione Brand, removing a cap, toasting the foot (how long do you toast a foot for), butane/torch lighters, cedar spills/matches, draw of a cigar, combustion on Boxed Pressed vs Parejo Cigars, premium cigars, optimizing a good experience with planning, the reach of a cigar, relighting a cigar, purple smoke, seeds and classifications.
