This is a great cigar and comparable to others at half the price. The draw is a little tight. My solution is to make sure the cigar is well humidified and then to roll it a wee bit. This opens the draw and provides prodigious smoke. The flavor is excellent with a bit of leather and a wee bit of cream. Ill be ordering several more.

"Diamond in the Rough"
No need for touch-ups whatsoever, not even per se but certainly self-correcting. The best thing about this stick is its unique flavor consisting of multiple sweet tones (due to the Costa Rican tobacco); not only that, the filler is mostly ligero without a doubt - strong but smooth. don't just buy this stick - buy boxes of these! You won't be disappointed. :) :)

"Better than many cigars three times the price."
My 5 pack was dated 2009 and it showed... In a good way. The cigar was nicely aged, smooth and mellow Not as full flavored as some of the reviews, which I prefer, but still with all the right flavors. You can't beat the price.

"Picky Cigar Guy - Glad I Took a Chance"
I am a very picky cigar smoker. In my mind there are plenty of cigars but only a few make my grade. That is why I am such a Rocky Patel fan. I took a big chance on purchasing a Rocky sampler pack and that is how I stumbled upon the robusto Conuco. This is a great cigar.

I loved this cigar! Great full flavor with a thick smoky experience.
The ash was superb.

"Great! Don't let the low price scare you."
With a sub $2.50 price tag when on sale, these are a bargain! Tasted like an excellent $8 full-body smoke with nice earth and wood tones, a slight touch of coffee and every now and then I swear I got a super subtle hint of cherry.

I was pleasantly surprised with this great full of flavor cigar. Received in a variety pack as a freeby and will definately be buying a box for my humi. Excellent burn, taste and very well built. Do yourself justice and try this little guy, you won't be disappointed.

I found out what cigar I like by trial and error and I have smoke alot of different cigars in 5 yrs. Buying this cigar was one of my good calls and I have made some poor choices to know. The Conuco is awesome! A perfect burn, great draw nice creamy earthy taste perfect construction and good apearance. I left a couple in the humidor for a month and they got BETTER! I spend alot of time smoking Rockey Patel, Alec Bradley and Padrone and I to say they give me the same enjoyment. Enjoy a box. Thanx Famous!!

"One of the very best "house brands" Famous offers"
These babies are good - first, last and always. I can honestly compare them to any Rocky Patel product - they always measure up. When Famous introduced (re-introduced??) these I was pleased to see such a truly good smoke available at a very good price. The prices have risen since - and like a lot of Famous' line, it seems they have risen much more than SCHIP caused - but they are still a very good cigar at a fairly decent price. I don't smoke as many as I did, because of the price, but I still like to grab one of the ones from the depths of my humi, and fire it up.
