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!!
I received a 5 pack and placed them directly into my humidor. They were wrapped on aluminized paper sealed with Scotch tape. I opened one 4 days later with a lot of fustration . Nothing great about the flavor and the wrapper started falling off. I only got to smoke about 1/3 of the cigar. I guess I ll wait and try another one in about a month. Removed the paper from the rest of them.
I have had more expensive cigars with higher reviews that I liked much less.00

it has a rich full flavor from the beginning to the end, with not a note of bitterness. must try, you won't regret it!20
I had never even heard of this brand. Well today I smoked the #2. WOW!! I was taken back withen the first puff. Just a great cigar, very 'clean" tasting. Spice was not overpowering. I just really relaxed and took my time to smoke it. I was enjoying it so much a friend said, "You look like you are asleep". My reply, no just smoking the best cigar I have ever smoked!I slowly worked my way down. Very even burn, easy draw, and just did not want it to finish.I will for sure be buying this one again.20
With a palethera of fantastic notes, this stogie will continue to give and give! My undisputed favorite stogie.10
What a great mix of flavors. Very pleasant aroma. I am hooked!!! You should try them, they will suprise you.01
It's not easy to find a smooth, top quality clark stogie. The 888 is great.02
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.11
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.20
Awesome flavor, awesome construction. These Illusiones are consistently excellent. I have not heard a bad word about them, ever. I wish they were available more at Famous. I buy them whenever they are in stock.20
