I hope everyone had a safe and enjoyable 4th! While many were smoking patriotic themed cigars this weekend, I reached into the humidor and pulled out a few Illusione ~mj12~ to review. Our own Brian Hewitt reviewed the ~mj12~ last year and the most glaring difference between this review and his review is that my box didn’t come all nicely wrapped in tin foil. Apparently when my box was packed there was a shortage of tin foil but have no fear, the tin foil will return so we can all make little tin foils hats to protect us from those pesky satellites. LOL.
The Illusione ~mj12~ replaces the extinct ~mj7~ which was a salomon sized smoke. It be cool to try and track one of those down. Definitely check out Brian Hewitt’s review as he’s our resident historian and does a great job tracking down the story of each cigar.
Video runs around 11 minutes and maybe you can help me decipher the code on the side of the box of the Illusione ~mj12~? The ~mj12~ wasn’t my thing. I really think Dion’s blends really pop and its uniqueness shine in smaller ring gauges. The 6×54 ~mj12~ was a bit airy and its sized was its worst enemy by taming and washing out it’s flavor profile.
