Famous Nicaraguan 5000 Sixty
6 x 60 - Maduro - Single
Nicaraguan 5000 cigars are another gem handmade from Tabacalera Protalasa, makers of our Nicaraguan 4000 cigars. If full-bodied flavor floats your boat, this is one cigar that's hard to ignore at these prices. Each vitola dons a dark, sweet 'n peppery Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper that surrounds a core of robust Nicaraguan longfillers and a milder Indonesian binder. The result is a perfectly-balanced cigar with superb construction and burn. Add a bundle of this excellent value to your cart now.
The word GEM in the Famous description is spot on. This cigar was an absolute joy to smoke. Good consistent flavor through out. Above average construction. Burned even until the last 1/8th and by then it did not matter anyway. You dont have to work this stick to get a good smoke draw like some other House brands I have tried. The first Full cigar in this price range that I thoroughly enjoyed all the way to the end. It will make a regular rotation in my Humidor.
If you love a nice oily Brazilian wrapper and a delicious smoke, this is a great cigar at any price.
These cigars are my typical monthly purchase. At the cost one might expect that these sticks are cheaply made but the reality is that they are tremendously tasty for the price. I get regular compliments on the aroma from others who smoke cigars and when I share them they tend to enjoy them too. Some palates do not like the flavor but more often than not I hear good reports.
