"Still tasty after all these years"
Dug to the bottom of the coolerdor this morning and found a half box of Maduritos from a purchase >4 yrs ago. Smoked 3 today and they're still just as good as I remember. The draw is still a bit tight. The taste still takes a few draws to get settled in, but, once it does, it's very enjoyable. Not one of those carnival rides of changing flavors, but just solid, steady, and good. I think I paid something like $25 for this box way back when. Because of the petite corona size, I *might* not cough up $40 shipping to get another batch, but I'm sure keeping an eye out for them to go on sale or to show up on CigarMonster. You should do the same.

I love these little babies! I smoke 'em while riding motorcycle and they hold up pretty good. They're small enough that I can cup 'em in my hand and the wind doesn't burn them down to the nub within a minute. I'm constantly getting compliments on the aroma too! These are a constant in my humidor.

"A great deal"
Let these sleep for about two weeks. After that, a great smoke for the sale price I got them at. Wonderful smoke, even burn. Will definitely buy again when on sale.

"fianlly - a cigar with real flavor"
I've searched for a small cigar with real flavor and I think I've finally found it! One of these and I feel like I've smoked a real cigar - I'm not reaching for a second one to satisfy my craving for a good smoke! This is a great tasting, satisfying smoke. Even though the size is small, the taste is huge!
I will definitely buy these again.....and again.....and again....

"Nice morning smoke w/a cup of Joe or w/out the Joe"
Tasty, full flavored, decent burn, but about 10% of them have a very hard draw. I have found that they need to be stored on the dry side(50%-60% humidity at the most)to get a decent draw out of the other 90%. I think that they are wrapped a bit to tight... or maybe its just me that is wrapped a bit too tight?!?!... I dont know you tell me.

"Wow! Big taste, Small package!"
Fantastic high quality cigar at an incredible price. This is a must buy if you are looking to stretch your cigar dollar.
Loads of rich salty chocolate flavor. A must buy!

"Fantastic Short Smoke"
This is a excellent short smoke, my favorite in this size. I'm on my 3rd box and every single one has been excellent so far. Construction is excellent, burn is even, good draw and tasty to the nub. This little guy has lots of creamy smoke. I would rate this as a full bodied and strong cigar, mild cigar smokers beware! And the price is really nice! Way to go Famous.

Forgive the Tony reference, but I can't sum it up any better. Straight out of the box these are 4 star
smokes. I imagine they'll only improve with some TLC. Pre-light draw is a bit strange... dark chocolate and... hmmmm... bleach? Put the flame to it however, and it shines! Reminds me of JR's Ultimate Habanito or Montecruz' Negra Chicos. Medium to full to start and pretty full-on toward the end. I got it down to about 3/4" before tossing it but I'd have to say that the last 1/2" got pretty harsh. I got these for $20 and at $.50 each I feel like I got a steal. It's cold here in the Northeast right now and these guys are just right for that "I'd really like a smoke right now, but it's too DAMN cold out for a toro" kinda feeling.
Ignore the haters, maybe they just got a bad batch.
