    Bought one the other day and gifted it to a buddy. I'll ask him how it was

    I will be trying one tomorrow night if all goes to plan. I guess I have had the earlier release of the HL Maduro. Excellent stick IMO. I have yet to have something from Dion that I havent enjoyed.

    Only had the ~hl~ Maduro, and it was great, but I prefer the natural.

    Had a Cg4 Maduro sat. Night. Unfortunately this was my first Illusione stick with construction issues. Super tight draw and a tunnel made for a terrible burn. Was unfortunate as I could tell the taste and flavor i've come to love from Dion are there, just was a job finding them. I bought a couple more to revisist as Im sure this was a fluke.

    I have a couple but have not smoked them yet. My local got all the new maduro lines in and I tried to pick up one of each back when they were released. Never had any issues with illusione so t_evan50, you need to try another for sure. Dion is good people and has a great cigar line.

    had an '88'. It was okay, but not what I've come to love from Dion. I recommend sticking with the original or Epernay lines, but maybe it's just my palette. Maduros all hit me a bit different.

    Im usually always in favor of the maduro lines but I have to agree with u. The natural lines are just too good from Dion.

    Tried one today and I have to say I was underwhelmed. Tight draw, and the taist was just........off.

    Hope this isn't a trend but if it is I would guess Dion would do something to correct it. The level of the rest of his stuff is to good to be brought down by these problems.

    Yeah, usually the maduro lines in almost any other stick is what I lean to, this one was good, just didn't "wow" me. Maybe it was because it was an 88 also. The CG4 natural compared to the 88 natural is a no contest to me also with CG4 TKOing the 88.
