La Floridita Belicoso Reviews
I got into cigars several years ago. Like others, I have my special collection and a brand for everyday enjoyment. During the summer I enjoy two a day; rest of year one per day. For the everyday smokes I have been satisfied with a bundle brand that Sam's Club sells. They're ok. Nothing fancy. $36 a bundle. While online with Famous-Smokes I was browsing their "on sale" cigars. Saw the Belicosos for $1 smoke. Went to the reviewers' section and was surprised at the high ratings: 7's and 8's. Unusual for a cheap (money-wise) smoke. So I took a chance and order 2 bundles. I was not disappointed! This will be my new regular order everyday smoke from FSS! The taste is full bodied. Burns fairly evenly. Nice ash. The only complaint I have is that a couple of them have had too easy of a draw. But for the money, absolutely a true bargain. Try some. Really. TRY SOME!
The only good thing I can say about this cigar as it looked nice. To start with I had to cut it twice to get a draw. Then it burned terribly...tunneling and the wrapper won't burn. i went through all the fluid in my lighter keeping it lit. All I can remember of the taste was harshness with a hint of butane. As it was I had this in my humidor for 2 months or so...but I should have taken it out of the cellophane and left it in there for a year. It was apparently rolled the week I bought...
Good taste but a PITA to keep lit. I used less matches to smoke a pipe. Wrapper is fireproof but the filler burns fast, tunnels for half the cigar then settles down. Gave one to my buddy, he doesn't want anymore. Can't give them away.
TERRIBLE! With the exception of one the cigars from the bundle of 20 all were rolled to loose which made for a hot smoke. Cigar became too hot to handle and also contain a great number of roots which made for a pretty noticeable uneven burn. two days ago I asked for some type of credit on my next order (not this brand for sure)and I'm still waiting for a reply. These cigars should be taken of the market.
Bought these on sale and I can see why they were so cheap. Very uneven burn, not a very good taste, uneven draw, consistently bad.
I was'nt too sure about these more inexpensive smokes since I'm really tired of spending moocho coinage for the big name cigars only to be left in a tasteless ploom of smoke.These were the first bundle I've ever bought and these are really good! Flavor,construction,burn all at a nice price point!I'll make sure the humi is locked when my buddys come over!
An inexpensive surprise, but only after a few months in my humidor. Easy drawing and very consistent. Never lost their shape or unwrapped from my constant chomping on the golf course. Taste after curing is medium to full without being harsh (like when new). They look rough, but do not smoke rough at all. Burn has been an issue for a few but not all, but that may be more me and my humidor habits than the cigar.
