Picked one up on sale at Blooms in South Side for 3 bucks. New to the cigar scene, but prefer the small more full-flavored cigars. This one did not disappoint. It was surprisingly very tasty. A nice smoke and burned well. I would buy again.

"Each to their own"
Small but flavorful and rich smoke. Different in taste to me from the regular LGC line- probably due to the form/size. Despite small size it always was a long smoke for me. Obvious that this one must be a matter of opinion (read prior reviews), but a recommend from me.

"Not a bad cigar"
In my other review of these cigars I had recieved a bad box of cigars, but thanks to the owner of Famous, and Ernest Perez-Carillo I was sent another box for free of charge. I recently sat down with a cigar from the new box... The new cigars had the signature LGC taste and they burned evenly, they were just as good as all of the other LGC from the Dominican Republic that I have ever tried, the only thing is that the Hermosos are a tad harsher than the others but it hadn't spent much time in the humidor as the others. Every one has their favorite line of cigars, and these are mine. LGCs have a spicy robust flavor that's not overly complex but enough to keep my attention, not to mention their excellent customer service. I would like to thank the owner of Famous for his concern over my review, and Ernesto Perez-Carillo for his prompt response.

"Not up to par"
I first started smoking cigars about six months ago, and I quikly found that I like the LGC maduros, I tried the reseve figurados(probrably their best), the serie R, the churchill, the petites(my daily smoke) and the gloria. They were all good, so when I saw the hermosos on sale for 64$ a box I said why not, aren't all sizes in a line of cigars created equal? Well they arrived at my house and I tried one... well I couldn't even make it past the first fourth of the cigar(unusual considering every other LGC I have ever smoked I smoked to the nub). I thought well maybe they need time in the humidor, so two months later I try another one that is properly humidified, well no luck again. I tried about six altogether and cannot make it past the halfway point on any of them, they draw and burn fine but they taste horrible. Moral of the story, not every cigar size in a cigar line is created equal, maybe they had inexperienced rollers making the hermosos, who knows, but try a couple of singles befor buying a box if you don't want to throw your money down the toilet.
