If you have been watching my reviews from the beginning, you know that St. Patrick’s day is a special day for me, being of Irish descent. Every year I try to review a special cigar on this day and this year, Dion Giolito of Illusione Cigars gave me a cigar that made it easy for me. At the 2010 IPCPR, Dion released the 888, 88 and HL with a special capa candela wrapper. He gave me a sample at the show and I knew right away that was my St. Patrick’s day cigar. What better a cigar for St. Patrick’s day than a green cigar? The 888 Candela is the same blend at the standard 888, but just with a special capa candela wrapper. Dion has been developing this wrapper for over a year and a half. Several of my cigar blogger and smoking friends speak highly of the cigar, so I was excited to finally smoke it. So, was this cigar a Cú Chulainn or an Oliver Cromwell? Watch the video and find out.
