"Good to the last puff"
I've been smoking these sticks on and off for a couple of years, and find they are always good, consistent in taste and construction, and probably one of the best bargains Famous has ever offered. I mix them into my daily rotation, and find myself always glad to grab onto one, clip it and fire it up. One can't go wrong, in my opinion, by buying the Nic 1000. Now, famous, please bring back the maduro version. It's even better!

Fantastic- straight forward, solid smoke. Burn and draw were perfect- and the price made it all the better!

"Worst toro in the X000 series"
Bought the toro thousand series. Tried them all. This was hands down the worst. Good burn but the flavor was terrible.

"Fantastic cigar for the price"
Everything about this cigar is above-average. I grabbed a bundle on Cigar Monster about five months ago. At under $2 a stick these are an excellent everyday value. I was most surprised by the great construction. Long-time cigar smokers that give these cigars an unfavorable or mediocre review would seem to have forgotten the poor quality of most of the cigars that you get for under $2 at your local tobacconist.

"Glad to see the maduro's are back!"
The Nic 1000 has been one of my favorites and I was hoping that the new supply of maduro's lived up to the last batch. After waiting over a year for them to come back in stock, I'm now blazing through a bundle this week. I find myself passing over other more expensive sticks to grab a Nic 1000. Clounds of sweet smoke, spicy robust flavor and built like a brick shitter. Next week the other bundle is in for it.

What a wonderful stick. Nice and firm, burn is straight, draw is excellent, good Nicaraguan tobacco flavor and aroma. Truly a very good cigar at a great price. Will definately buy more.

"Really good cigar for the money....."
I bought these based on the positive reviews here. I just finished my first one and all I can say is WOW! What a nice cigar! Well constructed. Great draw. Great taste all the way down to the last inch. I thought I'd found my everyday cigar with the Flor de Oliva Gold but these are better...and cost less.

"Great, Love on first stick"
Handed out sticks to friends in informal cigar club. Had to hide the rest of the bundle. Great inexpensive cigar. Has the feel and taste of some of the most expensive from Nicargua.
