"Well Worth The Price"
The burn was abit uneven but overall you can't beat the smoke for the price. Great taste and the burn was slow and the draw was even throughout.

"Fell short of expectations"
I bought a bundle through the yankee auction and from the reviews thought I had found a nice inexpensive, everday smoke. The appearance, contruction and draw were very nice, but the burn was terrible all the way down. The burn problems ran the gammut; canoeing, tunneling and needed frequent relights and touch-ups. The flavor was greatly hurt by the burn issues, as I'm sure you know what a foul taste the tunneling and needed relights can cause. The only flavor that was decent happened the last quarter of the cigar, so I'm tempted to cut them to the size of a robusto to skip the burn/flavor problems. I've smoked three from the bundle and have been disappointed in all three. Maybe they will improve with some humi time, as I really wanted to enjoy these good looking smokes.

Only complaint was that many out of the bundle didn't burn very well. Some did, some did not? Other then that it was good cigar. I've had better luck with the other shapes and will probably stick with them. Not a bad cigar, however.

Extreme Bargain Hunters take note:
These things are mighty good! Smoking the Corona Gigante in maduro, this cigar makes an impression wayyyy before lighting. The wrapper is deep and lustrous; oily, shiny, and practically vein free. It resonates a wonderful pre-light flavor and aroma which speaks of a cigar that usually costs me (and you) alot more than this one did. It has strong black coffee flavors throughout, and although this cigar might look intimidating it is so smooth and well blended that you find yourself at the end before you know hardly even know it. Impressive draw for a cigar of this size, consistency of construction is there...They even burned even for the most part after just a couple of days off the truck. I've only ever had to do just occasional minor touch-ups to correct the burn. This is one of the most impressive cigars for the money to come along in a long time. These are going on my ALL-TIME BARGAIN LIST right beside the Flor de Oliva bundle series, and Roly bundles. If you're not hip to these tasty sticks, hurry up before you miss the boat!

"SIMPLY STUNNING CIGAR VALUE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!"
I have been smoking these bundles for about two years now. It's my go to everyday cigar when I don't want to burn up one of my favorites (La Gloria Cubana's, Fuente's, Romeo Y Julietas). I enjoy them just as well. Try the Gigante, you'll love it. In maduro or natural, for the price, you cannot go wrong with this brand!!! Don't stop selling them Famous, we love em. Smoke-On brothers, Smoke-on. Thx again for a great bundle!!!!!!

Will not buy again. Had to keep re-lighting and draw was terrible through the whole bundle.

These cigars have become my staple brand. As being on a limited budget, La Floridita have come through again & again. They are well constructed, have a nice feel and taste very much like one of those expensive Honduran cigars that I use to smoke. Well Done Famous!!
