Nicaraguan Bundles Reviews
Showing 21 through 30 of 33 reviews
Every month or so, I visit the local racetrack. I like to drive real fast, and there are lots of cute chicks looking for the chance to go home with one of us drivers. My Honda Vtech reminds me of the Nicaraguan Presidente. It's not fancy, and I put it together for under $5000; but it is an extremely fast little rod. Last week, I raced some rich, CEO type, A-hole in a Porche. He bragged about smoking Rocky Patel, and gave me a lot of crap so I challenged him to a race. We decided the winner gets to have a box of cigs. That CEO beat me out of the starting light, but I caught up to him and passed him a few times. He caught up and won the race, but he was really surprised (even a little pissed) how fast my car was. He started asking me a bunch of questions about it. I gave him a box of Nicaraguan Presidentes because he won the race fair and square. He said they were not bad at all. Since the race we have become friends, and he has even given me an over paid IT job at his company. Hmm, I guess he wasn't such an A-hole after all.

"Smoking a Loose Sponge"
You don't have to worry about the draw with this sponge. Smoked one on delivery, it's hard to keep lit and burns unevenly. Perhaps I got a bad one, but you might want to be careful. I threw it out half way down. Uguh. I gotta go brush my teeth. There are 50 cent cigars I like better.

I only needed to see the NAME behind it and I was sold (by the way I have found Famous to be the best deals out there, no question)...I don't normaly rate or comment as I would not want the price to go up. But these are my everyday sticks and I would put them right next to the Organics.

Nice draw, smooth and good tasting. Excellent stock cigar for the humidor.

"Great taste, burn and cost!"
I smoked one of these toros outside last night. It was cold and I was impressed that the cigar burned well and did not crack or come apart. The taste is constant [medium], down to about an inch left. For its price, taste, construction and burn, it cannot be beat.

A little mild after taste towards the last two-thirds, but for $1.50, not a bad smoke.

"Great everyday cigar"
I was skeptical at first when ordering but figured I couldn't go wrong with the price. Found out is well worth the money. Great everyday cigar, and taste as good as cigars that are twice the price. They were hit on cigar night with my friends.

"NICARAGUAN BUNDLE TORPEDO"
BOUGHT A BUNDLE OF THE TORPEDOS A YEAR AGO AND THEY HAVE BEEN AGING IN MY HUMIDOR THE ENTIRE YEAR.THESE ARE ONE OF THE BEST CIGARS I HAVE EVER HAD.THE FLAVOR IS CREAMY WITH LOTS OF NUT AND CEDAR FLAVORS-LOTS OF CREAMY SMOKE VOLUME AS WELL.WELL WORTH THE INVESTMENT.

Nicely surprised. Had nice mild flavor until the last 25% - then it was time to put it out - lost the flavor. The wrapper came a part - no big deal. I enjoyed it - would recommend when they are on sale - heck of a deal.

"For ~ 1.50 a stick, this is not bad!"
My favorite cigar is the Fuente Sun Grown (Double Chataue) ...
but in the summer months when I smoke more I can't really afford
the ~5.00 per cigar ... a bundle is a bundle and can't be compared
a Fuente or any other quality premium ... but you know what?
For a buck and a half a cigar, this nicaraguan was pretty darn good.
I ordered just 5 individuals of it (the londsdale size) - wanted to test
it before ordering an entire bundle ... but will do so for sure. I recommend it ;-)
