¡Hola mis amigos! If this is your first time to The Stogie Review, welcome! And for all you peeps who’ve been around for awhile, welcome back! Lets burn another cigar to the f’n ground!
After the Tatiana Mocha review, best believe I was going to hit you back with something more my style and speed. This week I have the Illusione ~hl~ from Dion Giolito of Illusione Cigars. I’m sure by now, most of you know the run down of the meaning of his cigars. If not, you can head over to the Illusione website for the story.
Video runs a little longer than usual at around 16:30 minutes. While the Illusion ~hl~ doesn’t win my highest accolade it does earn the Great Torpedo Seal of Approval, just not the Golden one. I know the ~hl~ takes some hits for not being as robust as the other cigars in the Illusione lineup but it wins me over with its ample and complex woodsy, white peppery flavor profile and the sexy lancero size.
Check Out Other Reviews of the Illusione ~hl~:
Barry from acigarsmoker.com rated it a 89 but it falls short compared to other Illusiones
Ricky from cigarcommand.com rated it 4 out 5 stars and had outstanding flavors
Tony from leafandgrape.com rated it a 85 and thought it was fairly basic
Nick from inthehumidor.com got ample amount of flavors and would recommend it
Charlie from nicetightash.com has it as his 2nd favorite cigar from Dion in his video
NOTE: While in the video, I mention TexCigars as having the best pricing, its come to my attention that TexCigars is not an authorized retailer of Illusione cigars.
