Of course I have a special interest in this one. But if is does well they may make it a regular practice...which would be nice.

I've had the pleasure of smoking two of these over the past 9 months and enjoyed them very much. I'd love to be able to find a 5'er if that's not asking for the impossible. Can trade or do a straight purchase.

Read the full review here: Illusione ECCG Cigar Review - I'm assuming this is a ECCJ!
Decided to fire up my first Illusione eccj - WOW!
A little history:

Over the years, I've had a great relationship with the European Cigar Cult Journal.
I started as a reader and then as an advertiser and in recent years, I have become friends with the editor, Reinhold.
Recently, Reinhold asked if I could supply his cigar club with Puck-ifiers for an upcoming...
I went to the ECCJ website and filled out the online form to subscribe to ECCJ for a year w/ the free Puck. Haven't gotten an email and haven't been charged.
If you've signed up for the magazine how long did it take?
I know a lot of people here subscribe and I wanted to hear other opinions on current or past issues.
I just received the Autumn 2008 edition and can't put it down. I've had my subscription for over 2 years, but this is one of the best issues IMO.
I'm a little disappointed that in their...
I got word from Colin Ganley that ECCJ European Cigar Cult Journal will be doing a small article about CigarLive.com and the cigar. Wow that is pretty cool. Thanks Colin I look forward to it. So very cool to do it on such a great group of members.

My wife (cigarwife) and George (aka. gnukfu) set up a box split on some ~ECCJ~ Illusiones and the whole thing blowes up in our face!!!
Trader Feedback: You blew up our house and exposed our child to unhealthy snacks; high in carbohydrates and saturated fat!!!
George was supposed...
So after getting the box today there was no way I couldn't wait to smoke one, let me just say this was a but kicker of a cigar I know its supposed to be full flavored medium strength but I don't know its defiantly full flavored and very very creamy but I had a huge steak and baked potato for...
So for those who haven't heard Illusione has made a cigar to celebrate the 15th anniversary of the european cigar cult journal and these are those. They come in boxes of 15 and have a different wrapper I believe than the other versions of Illusione's but if Dion is on hopefully he could chime in...
Has anyone seen the Rafael Gonzalez Lonsdale ad in European Cigar Cult Journal(Autumn edition 2007)on page 27 ? I just though it was interesting to see the recommendation from RG that "In order that the connoisseur may fully appreciate the perfect fragrance they should be smoked either within...
I have heard good thins about this magazine but haven't had the opportunity to read it yet. If anyone has an old copy they would like to part with I would appreciate it greatly. I would be willing to trade some smokes for a copy.
More cuts...and they say the ones most likely are ERDM Tainos, Partagas #1, Diplomatico #1 and #3, Sancho Sancho. They also suggest that an exclusive importer can campaign and potentially get a cut to be changed....did not know that (not like it matters much). Also, to be debuted is a Monte 4...
