    Smoke an Illusione 888 today. It was a great cigar. Really wasn't spicy at first, it was real smooth. I taste a hint of spice as I finish the 1/3. 2/3 I get some nice chocolate and I want to said earthy. Honestly I wasn't paying attention to the last third. The burn wasn't pretty at first, but after a few puffs...it was razor sharp. I got a 20 min commute this semester. I'm looking forward to light up a Partagas Short. [​IMG]

    I don't think I've had an 888. I really like mj12. The robusto,88?, was mehh.

    What a few days its been. Need a fine cigar and big pour of bourbon and it's barely lunch.

    75 and sunny is perfect - get out there while you can. it's shitty here - hopefully it will clear up for the weekend.

    I'll look forward to the Viaje, thanks man [​IMG]

    I haven't try out the mj12 yet. A lot of people seem to prefer the 88 over the mj12. I order some mj12 and 88...so I'll see. I got a Brick House robusto line up for tomorrow. It's been sitting in my humidor for a while now. The first few I had a while back was solid. Also got a Hupmann No 2 for this Sunday.

    I don't think I've had an 888. I really like mj12. The robusto,88?, was mehh.

    i like the 2 and the MJ12 the most. the 88 was ok. i will buy more and sit on them. i didn't really give it a proper chance since it was smoked during 18 holes of golf.

    the epernay le ferme is great. recommend trying those as well. tad lighter than the regular line.

    i have yet to try a nosotros.
