"Just bought a box of the belicoso"
Had these in my humidor for quite some time; just blew through all the sticks I had. I enjoyed these so much I just bought a box on another site.
Delicious, decadent, handsomely well-constructed and consistently enjoyable right down to the end. Too bad this line was just discontinued; grab them while you can.

"If only I had known it would be this good"
A great smoke. It could stay lit a little longer .. But a consistently perfect smoke down to the nub.

"A must try for maduro lovers"
After going through more than half the box of the 777 Belicoso, I can make a strong "buy" recommendation, but with a caveat. For some reason, possibly due to the lack of aging time at the factory prior to being placed in plastic wrappers and boxed, this cigar needs to be taken out of the plastic wrap and aged in your humidor for at least a couple of months so that the cigar could finish it's maturation process. That's when I experienced a big change from a plain woody raw smoke to a smoother and more complex coffee/peppery smoke which I would easily rate a 90-91 (the cigars I tried that kept the plastic wraps on were different, I would rate these lower and agree with the current ratings of around the mid-80's). Note that only the plastic-free humidor aged 777 cigars behaved in this highly refined manner for me. So, if you want to try an interesting maduro cigar, a bit of patience will pay off in the end.

"Not bad, not great"
Let age for at least 2 weeks before smoking to accomodate to your humidor. Draws very well, taste is strong tobacco flavor, nothing special or interesting. Just an ok cigar for the price. Cigar stays the same for most part and gets more harsh towards the end. I;'m glad I tried it but I'll give most of them away to frieds for them to try. I might smoke one more but never buy again. you can get better cigars for the price. I like sweet cigars, like RP, Casa Magna, Padilla Miami; this was nothing like them.

"Wow! Someone got it right finally!"
CIgarhead, you could not sum up any review any better! If people want to know cigars, listen to what CIgarhead has to say! It cannot be said any better! This should be on every review in big letters so the minions understand! Oh yea these are very nice cigars in all categories, but a little pricey as was said! Peace!.. Thank you Famous, give us some real deals on the cigars so we can clean your warehouse out for you! :)

"If you really don't like these, I have an idea"
I would say,
1. the reviews seem shallow, and the cigar is a lot more than what is seen here.
when you buy cigars you need to let them sit. Unwrap the box break the seal, put it in your cabinet (sorry, your humidor) and let them stabelize. I don't care who or what you buy, anything you just light up is going to be wet, shipping is safer with a moist wrapper, it's tougher to bust or crack.
So the runs and "uneven" burn can be due to them being wet.
Not the maker's fault, he knows how to let his personal cigars age. At least a week maybe 2.
If you can squeeze the cigar a little and you hear cracking, it's too dry, if it squishes and stays doesn't spring back, it's too wet.
If you have a firm or close to firm that would spring back, it's ready.
Now this cigar is really a hot item, I dont' work here, and in fact I think they hate me, but I'll have to say anyone who ran right by this smoke based on the ignorant reviews above is going to miss a great smoke.
The price is the only thing I see wrong. I'd smoke one a day. Just sold a box to do a split today. I've smoked for 10 years and since these were released I ahve smoked 3 boxes.
So lets be polite, if you are going to do a review, do one, but don't bust a smoke you didn't cure down a bit and then come slam the cigar. That cigar is fantastic and is very over looked. I know 20 people I can speak to right now who smoke them and also found them to be very nice,
Powerfull and spicy, the number title is getting old for me but this is another home run for Fuego.
With the Delerium and the Rare Corojo's release being so close, thsi cigar still has it's place.
Stepping out of the norm for Jesus is not in the least anything to be scared of. This cigar has spice and pepper, an 8 on a 10 point strength grading system.
I would say the construction on this cigar is better than a lot of the same ol same ol names and some makers I won't mention.
You pay $10 a stick for worse quality if you are not careful.
I love the belicoso, anything longer would be too much, when the power comes on, it's great and what's teh best part is you can still taste wonderful flaovers, I don't believe in "coffee" or Nutty" descriptions. I would say this smoke resembles the flavor profile of the Ilusion 88.
All around< would say this is a strong smoke, best on a full stomach, maybe Scotch and take your time, or make sure you have a DD.
It's a great smoke.
Thanks to FSS for carrying Boutique brands, without there support you would be getting nothing but the "same ol brands"
Now go smoke a Pepin

"Okay - Good"
This cigar is okay - good. Not bad flavor, but be prepared for high maintenance. Haven't had one yet that didn't require touchups.

"What a Cigar!"
What a Cigar!,I bought a five pack of 777's and let them sit in humidor for about three months and took a couple to my firehouse with me; now the guys are buying these by the box, myself included. Great taste, great draw, love the spices. Can't wait to try this delerium i've been hanging onto.
