    Illusione ~hl~ (Holy Lance) Maduro

    Size : 7.5 x 40
    Wrapper : Maduro
    Filler : Nicaraguan

    The standard Illusione ~hl~ is a favorite of mine. I consider it the single best Lancero on the market right now. Whether you agree with me or not on that point, there is no denying it is an excellent cigar. Recently Illusione added a Maduro and Candela version of this elegent Lancero. I smoked a few of the Candelas recently and it proved to be an excellent version of the Holy Lance. One I enjoyed very much. It seemed only natural that I finish the cycle and try the third and final incarnation of the Lance.

    I really enjoyed the ~hl~ with the maduro wrapper. The flavors were very rich and very different from the others. It was earthy with very nice dark chocolate notes and subtle bitter/semi sweet component to it. It was perhaps not as complex as the other two. It never really changed much but the thing is that it doesn’t need to. The flavors are deep and delicious. It is a great smoke that I enjoyed and never got bored with. It is a total change of pace from the Rosado and the Candela ~hl~’s.
