Illusione ~hl~ (Short Ashes)

Illusione HL

I was talking with Jerry via Twitter the other day and it seems he has run into a bit of a problem. His super fast Verizon FIOS service has been interrupted by a faulty router and he was unable to upload his video. Rather than dig through the Fan Forums to get a Cigar Shop Review or Guest Cigar Review, I decided to post a video that I recorded previously.

I was intending to post this video on Friday but was able to record a second Short Ashes video for that slot. The video I have for you today focuses on the Illusione ~hl~ (Holy Lance). I’ve been fortunate enough to smoke a few of these lately. The first came after my wife’s first ultrasound. The second was for this video, and the third (the photo above) was smoked after my wife’s second ultrasound. It has become a celebratory cigar, of sorts, for me.

The video runs around fifteen minutes and follows the general Short Ashes format. An audio only version is also available for those that prefer to listen rather than watch.

Edit:
Looks like Jerry was able to get a connection to upload some photos and make a post yesterday. As a result, this article is going up Friday (today) but the write-up remains unchanged.

  1. Great review Walt. The Illusione’s are amazing cigars. A bit pricey so not a regular in the rotation but I make sure to pick up about 5-6 a year from Tower Cgiars here in Sacramento. I’ve yet to try the holy lance but I sure as heck liked the f9 which is similiar at a 44 x 6.25.

    I love your short ash reviews btw πŸ™‚

  2. Nice review, I haven’t had this one yet either for a similar reason you don’t smoke too many Illusione….no accounts in Rochester! I can get them if I’m willing to drive to Buffalo though πŸ™‚

  3. Love the Holy Lance! Having an Illusione in the lancero size is great – but the ~hl~ is just an awesome stick. Planning on having one shortly!

  4. Great review. I was stupid in not picking any of these up for myself when I got yours! Oh well, next time πŸ˜‰ Seems like a nice cigar. I will have to grab some for myself next time I am in gettysburg. I always am concerned that the lancero sizes will just burn too fast for a nice long smoke, but it doesnt seem to be the case with this one.
