"Made me want to vomit."
When I first unwrapped this cigar, I smelt it and already knew I wasn't going to enjoy it. It smelt like an old sock that you left under your bed for a year. After lightin it up, I took two or three puffs and threw that sucker in the street. I honestly couldn't take the disgusting flavor. It hit nice the cap fell apart easy. DO NOT BUY!

Not very impressive. Draw was too loose, burn was uneven. Taste was of leather and some chocolate but rather harsh.

"Great for the price"
I enjoyed this cigar. It is not too strong not too soft.

"worst in awhile"
I know some people like them and maybe i got a bad one in my economy sampler, but it was not a good experience. Burn was like one big streak. Taste was like burnt leather.

"I'm very surprised by these negative reviews."
I find the Pancho Natural to be a consistently good tasting cigar. Yes, the one negative is its uneven burn--it never tunnels on me, though. It's a trade-off: the wrapper is thick and flavorful, so I think it retains a lot of moisture--causing the uneven burn. I wish more people would say if they are referring to the Maduro or the Natural. I like them right out of the package--no aging necessary.

"Inconsistently BAD TO WORSE!!"
Bought these thinking that it's time to try something new. BIG MISTAKE!! Tried one when I received the bundle, I may have been smoking paper. Set in the humidor for a month, not much better. Less harshness, but overall still bad. I will throw these out.

I also got the 2fer deal. The flavor, to me, is a less refined (more IN YOUR FACE!) version of the 2 or 3 Plascencia Organicas I have received in samplers. It is certainly full-flavored--but not harsh. I love the Natural wrappers--luscious, silky feel and taste. I compare these to the Fam. Nic. 3000, and I like the Floriditas better, except that the burn is sometimes uneven. If I could get them at these prices all the time, I would keep a constant supply.

"A nice spicy smoke!"
I've been searching for an economical substitute for my beloved Padron 2000 maduros, and I think I've found it! The La Floridita Pancho (Maduro) is a suprisingly satisfying cigar for the money. I'd dare say that the construction compares favorably to the Padron (and the caps are truly superior to Padrons) and the flavor is suprisingly complex and spicy. This smoke is too good to be a bundle cigar, but I won't complain, as the price is a steal. Try 'em, you'll like 'em!

"Oily Goodness, Super Price"
I recieved a 15 stick sampler thought this would be a stinker, was I wrong,great looking stick, very glossy. Used a punch and a poker the draw got better on the way down. Smoked it passed the wrapper. Bundle of Panchos will be in my next order. Thanks Famous....

burned like a paper sack and had to use a drill to get it to draw.
