"Good tasting cigar for the price"
I had to throw five cigars from the bundle away because they were wraped so tight that I could not draw through them. The rest of the bundle was great. Good draw,even burn and tasted great. I'll get some more.

"A needle in a haystack?"
Joker here....I purchased these in my last order, after a friend turned me on to the Nicaraguan 3000. It was surprisingly good for a value bundle, but I wanted something a little milder. After reading reviews and descriptions,I saw these, flipped a coin, and took a chance. Yahtzee! These things are two kinds of alright, if you ask me. The slightly sweet cap gets you chewing, and the spicy caramel notes on the back end keep you interested the whole way in this one. Nice draw, solid construction, take this one home and marry it! Famous is making friends every time someone buys this cigar, I'm sure. Well done!

"Good flavor, burn problems"
Almost every cigar from this bundle burns irregularly and is tough to keep lit. The flavor is good, however.

This was my first try of this gently priced bundle. These have a sweet start that firms up a bit as you smoke it. VERY smooth, easy draw, and good construction. The finish is also pleasant. Looking forward to my next bundle!

"Best bargain smoke I've had"
My cigar shipments from Famous usually consist of half premiums and half bargain smokes, usually Value Lines. I just got a shipment that included the new Famous Nicaraguan 1000 toros, and after smoking a couple feel compelled to share my find here. Bluntly put, this is a damn fine cigar! I haven't smoked enough to really speak about consistency, of course, but for flavor (and construction) so far, I can say this is the best bargain cigar I've ever had. Caveat: I prefer "full-flavored" cigars, so if you're a Macanudo natural fan, just ignore this.
I've spent over $2,000 on cigars from Famous this year alone, so this isn't being written by some cigar novice. And I also post in these forums if I dislike a cigar, so I'm not just sucking up to Famous. (I would suck up to them if I thought I'd get some freebies out of them, but I've never heard of that happening!)
If I've just happened to hit the two that are this good and the rest are lousy, I'll post that fact later. For now, though, my advice is to try a bundle.
