"Not for me"
I had a few as part of a sampler, and didn't like it when I tried it about a year ago. Had another with a year's rest, and it was the same, newspaperish taste with a very tight draw. I feel bad tossing cigars, but did not have a problem tossing this one after geting more than halfway through. Will not be buying these any more.

I really enjoy La Floridita normally and maybe this one is one for the record books on a true screw up, but I had three plugs in this gar...spent most of the time relighting after getting rid of plugs...then the taste wasn't what I have come to expect from La Floridita. I think I might give the fuerte the benefit of the doubt by trying one more, but the gar overall was such a big A disappointment! The only thing consistent about this cigar was the inconsistency!

Is not bad for the price but I was expecting a little more in flavor, since those have been wrapped in a Brazilian "da mata" could be better.

I'm just about six months in to the cigar world, I received this cigar in a sampler pack and couldn't wait to smoke the other one I received with it. Thought i already had a favorite smoke until I sampled this one. Great cigar regardless of the price. I have sampled 20.00 cigars that didn't taste or burn this well.

"Not so good!"
I always buy robustos, but this cigar (maybe I got two bad ones) is like smoking a piece of wood. Very tightly rolled and burned unevenly! I could not draw much smoke through it. don't go by my review, I just will not buy it again!

"Another One Dimensional Cigar"
Strong black tobacco taste but nothing more. At least this one burned OK.

"Nice quick smoke"
Nice smoke with an easy draw but does not burn even.

"Please Have A Sale"
A great smoke, not harsh like stated in an earlier review. For me at least. Nice even burn, long ashes and great flavor. Took over an hour to smoke this one and I enjoyed every minute.

"Not A Surprise"
Came from Central PA and was in the Easton area. Had to stop at the WORLD FAMOUS-FAMOUS SMOKE SHOP. These were in my basket to buy on-line, but purshased in store. Couldn't wait to drive 3 hours home and fire one up. Opened a Hoegarrden and lit it up. I shouldn't be surprised, but an incredible smoke. Almost as great as the girl that helped me in the shop. Thanks Famous and keep up the great work.

"Excellent, excellent smoke"
This is a terrific cigar. It's very rich and yes, quite strong, but never bitter. It's a great after-dinner smoke - very satisfying. The workmanship is top notch with a very consistent draw and very even burning. It's a bit pricey for a cigar that isn't a big name, but if you care more about flavor than labels and you like a rich, full-bodied cigar, this is one you gotta try!
