The name MJ12 comes from Dion’s, owner of Illusione, use of conspiracy theories and info when naming many of his cigars. MJ12 specifically was code name for a committee of scientists, military leaders, and government officials. The group was named The Majestic 12 and was created in 1947 by President Truman to investigate UFO activity after the Roswell incident, and played a large role in the conspiracy of UFO cover-ups from the US government.
Now about the cigar there is a Natural and Maduro version. The Maduro uses a Mexican San Andres over all Nicaraguan binders and fillers. The profile is a rich and sweet experience offering the classic chocolate and cacao from the Mexican wrapper leaf. The Nicaraguan tobaccos utilized offer flavors like brown sugar, leather, earth, oak, and a smokey meaty finish. The blend sits a medium+ profile. It may look like a heater, and while the flavors are strong the strength will not overwhelm you.
