"Need more now!!!!!!! I said NOW!!!!!!"
Illusione 88 Robust
Beautiful smoke! Oh my gawd!
This thing is a little baby beast. I didn't extpect alot from this thing. It was tiny compared to what I'm normally smoking & really had this what the heck? kind of attitude going in.
It starts med to full & goes full in the last half with an exceptionally complex profile throughout. If you burn too fast it's all strength but take your time & flavors unfold like silk sheets. Pepper is moderate till the end and spices abound. Earth and leather, nutty sweetness and faint anise tricked me into a perception of coconut retro. Get them when you can and save them IF you can...

"Awesome cigar! 5 stars"
Excellent full bodied cigar from start to finish. Excellent draw, wonderful taste, burns evenly, leaves a pleasant taste on the palate. Highly recommend this cigar!!

Illusione 888 Candela
A very smooth cigar. I stumbled upon this at a local shop the other day, and as soon as I was done with it, I wanted more! Its a very sweet cigar, with exceptional flavors! Not a powerhouse in body (medium in my opinion). I brought home a few more and plan on ordering more soon!

"The Best Claro Cigar. Period."
Illusione HL Candela
It's not easy to find a smooth, top quality clark stogie. The 888 is great.

"This is my favorite cigar - one of a kind taste."
Illusione CG4 White Horse
I have been wanting to write a review about this cigar ever since I took my first puff. It has everything I look for in a cigar - Smooth spice, a woody taste, with hints of coffee, and smell that sweet smell that lingers in the air. The only thing that I do not care for is how softness of the cigar.

"Not Consistent w $"
Illusione 4/2G Slam
TOO much hype, not enough quality control! Not worth $200 a box!

"My goto Favorite smoke"
Lucky me, I live in Reno, hometown of Dion, the wizard behind these wonders and his home cigar shop! The regular 4/2Gs were my goto until I bought a box of Slams by mistake...the best mistake I've ever made. Great flavor/aroma/look/construction/burn, at least a 2 hour smoke. Pricey, yes, but worth it for enjoying the lazy summer afternoons staring at the Sierras. You can't go wrong w/ any Illusione, but for serious herfing sessions, these are the best.

"My first Illusione cigar, a very nice one indeed"
Illusione 2 And Crowned of Thorns
My long time favorite cigar has been the CAO Maduro l'Anniversarie (aka "red label")in the carona size. I like the smaller ring gauges. Sometimes these CAOs can be hard to find so I'm always on the lookout for a comparable fall back smoke. I think I found it. The f9 has the same smooth, opaque smoke that the CAO has. A great rich taste, and even burn. I had to relight a couple times in the last half of the cigar. The draw was a little tight. I do like tighter draws on my cigars though. I don't like to feel like I'm just sucking on an empty drinking straw. And to boot the CAO and the f9 are within 25 cents of each other at my local shop. After trying this one in the shop, which does carry the l'Anniversarie CAOs, I took some f9s home for my humidor.

"Really nice smoke!"
Great smoke. Full flavor really kicked in after about 1cm of burn, after that very smooth and tasty. Had to relight once,due to a cavity in middle of cigar. I'll chalk it up to constuction anomaly! Would smoke again if there weren't so many others to try! Definitely recommend though!
