illusione questions

Hey everyone just wondering what your opinion on the illusione cigars are? If any of you have done any reviews on them that would be amazing. My local B&M just got a bunch in, and Iv been interested in trying them. They recently got the Epernay ,88, mj12, and the 2. Thanks for any opinions or reviews guys. :)

    Intelligence is knowing that a tomato is a fruit; wisdom is knowing not to put it in a fruit salad.

    I like Oliva and Quesada (including Regius) a lot.  I will smoke anything, though.

    can't beat them for the price IMHO.


    MJ12 and 88 are some other favs

    Love the Illusione stuff, the regular line is great, the Singulare is fantastic and the Marelas Suprema Crusado is one of my current fave's

    I personally enjoy the MJ12, 88, and Rothschild. Good sticks if you ask me. I'll even buy them at retail.

    They didn't have any of the Roth child's so end up getting a mj12 in the silver wrapper. I'll give it a try this weekend if I like it I'll pick up a 2nd and give it a fair review. Any suggesting a with pairings? Also I wasn't expecting the clairo to be green. Anyone given it a try?

    Ever had a candela before? Usually mild, sweet, grassy. Very unique. I've had a few illusione and all were great. Love the rothschilde's!

    Agree 100%, and the Holy Lances are their best blend for my taste, but love the MJ12 and 88 a ton too especially the Maddies versions. Jim you need his addy bro or are you covered?

    Gonna agree with everyone. The 88 is one that you can't go wrong with, in my opinion.

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    Gigantes are pretty decent as well. I also have had the opportunity to have the Nosotros and they are fantastic. I will agree that the rothschildes are a great smoke too.
    Team O'Donnell FTW!

    All solid smokes. Holy Lance, Epernay, and Gigantes are solid. For the money the Rothchildes are a can't miss. Need to try the Fume D'Amour myself

    Finally tried a Rothschild and man let me say the burn was excellent with creamy full billows of smoke. The draw was easy and the taste was top notch. Def an amazing smoke. Picked up note of spice, and sweetness, along with a good helping of a woody core. Sadly I didn't sit down and pay attention to each 3rd as I was mildly intoxicated, but it would be darn near tragic to not pick another one up. Man ty Todd!image
