The MJ12 comes in a silver foil wrapping that isn’t exactly conventional with many cigars out there.  It’s also not that conducive to those who like to give cigars an once-over before buying them.  If you like the feeling of unwrapping surprises, you may enjoy the wrapping.  If the MJ12 moniker truly pertains to UFOs and Roswell, then the shoe fits.  A simple, yet attractive black and white band rests near the head and that displays MJ12 and the Illusione name in a classy font.  The cigar itself has several veins that are visible, and the wrapper has a rich, dark color.  A quick feel denotes that the MJ12 is tightly packed, and a quick smell and taste reveal some hints of coffee.

Once lit, the MJ12 burns well.  It stays even, with solid ash and a good draw.  The cigar lasts a long time also so you can savor it.  The flavors are varied.  A good amount of creaminess blends in with some pepper near the beginning.  Chocolate makes an appearance, as well as leathery flavors.  The coffee which was detected before lighting also comes into play.  The one flavor that seemed to appear the most was spicy. 

The MJ12 is a good smoke for those who like full-bodied cigars.  The flavors are diverse and interchange enough to keep you interested, and the burn is consistent.  You can purchase a single for around $9, or a box of 20.  Illusione fans will definitely want to give this one a try.  The Illusione MJ12 receives a rating of 3.5 out of four stars.

That is all for now.  I hope you enjoyed these two reviews of cigars from Illusione.  Until next time…..
