"Rich, strong, well-rolled"
Very pleasing, full-flavored cigar. The slightly rectangular-pressed shape is very appealing somehow. Rich, with some bite, but not a throat-scraper at all, and it burns evenly. The tight draw keeps it burning slow.

Wanted to try these because I enjoy the Famous Nic 1000 so much. This cigar is absolutely wonderful. Burns well, construction is right on, the aroma is enticing and the taste is spicy and potent. A great change if you smoke a lighter bodied stick and want something with a bit more umph. This cigar really delivers without being agressive. I will definately buy more.

"A gem you may not have discovered!"
I bought a 5-pack to give this one a shot. Let me tell you right off the bat, this is an awesome cigar for what you are paying. There is just the right amount of "spice" to it, and is also rich in flavor. Great construction, fabulous burn and draw. I'm simply amazed that these at 2.09 a stick in a bundle are better than many premium cigars. Give these a smoke, they'll ALWAYS have a spot in my humidor. 8.75/10

"very very good"
wife,three kids, mortgage, on 75k, and you better find a good cheap cigar- these are fantastic - loaded with flavor - pretty sure they are oliva's - been smoking cigars for years - these could run with any top nicaraguans - better than current havanas, which lately have been very poor

"I would have been better off smoking a dead rat"
I am not a huge fan of full bodied cigars. I have had a few, and know what to expect. I got this particular cigar in a sampler. I must say it is the worst thing I have ever Tasted. Bitter, and biting, i couldn't stand more than a couple of minutes and had to put it out. It smelled horrible too. This cigar was so bad i am hesitant to try the rest of the cigars in the sampler.

"Famous Nicaraquan 3000"
The Famous N3K is an outstanding, great tasting, well constructed cigar. As a full-bodied cigar smoker, I'm very picky about what I smoke. After buying a bundle last month, I've made this my everyday cigar and have since doubled my orders. I've given them to my friends to try, and they all praised this cigar. Thank you for fast service and delivery. I'll stick with Famous when ordering. I'm very satisfied.

"Believe The Hype 2"
I needed a good go-to cigar while working in the yard. Got tired of wasting my money on name brands cheap bundles that fell apart, wouldn't burn right, or tasted like grass. I read what other said about the NIC 3000 and decided to try 5 of the Robusto's, and what other say is true. Good even burn, good grey ash, great construction, and a good taste that isn't harsh. On my third lot now and the consistency is the same from the first lot.
This cigar has not flaked or unraveled, and I've had good Perdomo Lot 23's and Padilla Hybrid's that have not been this well constructed. A zesty smoke and not for the newby. This is a must try.

"Believe the hype"
These are indeed very good smokes. I remove the cello and let them sit and they just get better and better. Very flavorful but not at all harsh. I just hope FSS doesn't get greedy and start cutting corners with them. Hear that, Gary? :)
