I love Illusione. I have not had a bad stick from them. Enjoy!

Love the Don Reynaldos! One of my favorite NCs

I picked them up because I have yet to see a bad review. I'm very excited to try one!

I am about eight years late to the Illusione party,  I was going thru a strictly Cuban phase for  a good eight years. So, I am experiencing the older releases now!

Actually, same. I discovered them earlier this year and have not looked back. Great stuff. I recommend the HL, or the "Holy Lance" in natural. Really exceptional lancero, and the Haut 10, as well

The Haut 10 is on the list and now the HL, lol. Thanks!

I am switching back and forth between Illusione and the Foundation lines. I have not had a bad Foundation cigar but I will not smoke anything with CT Shade, broadleaf is a different matter.

That’s awesome looking congrats!!  

I’ve had some aged Opus that we’re absolutely brilliant.  Very cool purchase and that box is gorgeous!  Looks like a zebra or Koa wood or something.  Killer!

Thanks, I think the wood is called Macassar Ebony...

I’ve not had any luck with Opus. Not had one I like. I love Fuente for their mild/medium - Hemingway all day (which is funny, because almost everything else I like is more full flavored.) I liked Opus for the idea (first DR puro), but just don’t like the cigar.

That's because Willy's palate is next level when he's blending

Was thinking of getting the Lonsdales. Looks like I’ll have to try the Lanceros too.

I had to pick up the newest installment of the Tatuaje Monster series just because I came across a box and figured why not. I am a Connecticut wrapper fan so 25 Dalias at $5 a stick was an easy decision.

Their boxes are always great. Picked up some Tatuaje Miami Cojunu 2012 Sumatra’s that really blew me away not too long ago. If you like a full cigar that’s deep on chocolate flavors give those a shot.

I had a single of the Karloff last Friday and thoroughly enjoyed it for a full bodied NC change of pace—beautiful construction and wrapper to boot. I picked up a couple boxes thereafter as they’re almost all sold out. Definitely try one if you can.

I think the Lonsdales he does are the superior size.

I have a Cojuno 2012 in my humidor some where, but I think it is a Capa Especial . I will have to dig it out! The one thing about Tatuaje is that you need a be a detective to figure out what cigar is what because the bands rarely tell you anything. Just the name and a different color scheme on a lot of the sticks.

Padron 1964 maduro torpedo. I purchased 3 five packs. Not cheap by any means but they are one of my favorite smokes CC or NC.

My favorite NC, that series, that vitola, hands down.  For me better than the ‘26 although I’m sure others disagree.  Enjoy!!
