"Liberate el Presidente"
One by one, the vitolas of the Nic 3000 went out of stock. It wasn't an accident. I know guys who bought multiple bundles after smoking just a couple Nic 3000s. This was a serious $6.00 cigar, stripped naked of a ritzy band, hiding in a $2.00 a stick bundle. Now, the serious questions are, "Is this past tense? Can Famous's buyers twist the manufacturer's arm hard enough and long enough to replicate this current release and maintain the bundle price?" I sure hope so...Even the peculiar shape.

"Very Good Smoke"
I've smoked a bundle of the famous 1000's before and found them to be a decent cigar, so I ordered a bundle of 3000's. The 3000 Presidente is very good. Good construction, dark wrapper, rich and satisfying flavor and definitely full bodied. These are as enjoyable to smoke as cigars costing much more. It's a surprisingly good cigar for the price. Ill definitely be ordering more of these. One note - if you're used to mild or medium cigars like I am, these may take a little getting used to. You may want to be sitting down for your first one. They pack a pretty good punch.

"Very pleasant smoke"
A very pleasant smoke. Nice construction, nice
wrapper, good ash, very pleasant aroma (smooth cedar and leather notes), very easy draw with lots of creamy smoke. Flavor is a bit peppery, definitely full bodied, not overwhelming, but not for the beginner or anyone used to the usual mild bundle cigar. An excellent value; can't wait to fire up a few around the campfire this summer (if they last that long!)
