Way back in March I reviewed the thinnest cigar from Illusione, the lancero-sized ~hl~. Today I’m reviewing the newest and fattest cigar in the line, the mj12. It weighs in at 6 inches long and a 54 ring gauge. Besides its size, it’s silver foil wrapping sets it apart from the rest of the Illusione line.
I picked out a Stone Brewing Company Levitation Ale to go with it, and talk about Illusione creator Dion Giolito, what mj12 stands for, my favorite Illusione cigars, apprehension over turning 30 in a few weeks, and trying like hell to get you to enter our Fall Contest. And thanks to dk_fxn and Skip for the photos.
