"Not worth trying"
These cigars burned so hot that they were unsmokable. I returned the box and was totally unsatified. Not recommended at any price.

The big 60 ring really gives you something to chew on ,its sweet spot is the last inch and a half a long burning fine cigar

"One of my Favorites"
Olor Fuerte is one of my favorites the 6x60 I have never had a bad one yet... good flavor, good smoke, looks good, even burn and smooth draw. I think I have close to a 100 of the 6x60's just aging very nicely. When Famous puts the 6x60's on sale I jump on them and put them away. Great deals great cigar... priceless!!!

"Nice draw, smooth mild and burns like a champ."
Nice appearance and consistancy. What else can you ask for ?

"Not so smooth balanced and complex"
I'm not impressed with this cigar. The burn, draw and construction were fine, but the taste wasn't. The best way to describe it is it's like smoking cardboard that tobacco was previously packed in. I'll give the rest plenty of box time, but if they don't improve, they're going to people who might apreciate them.

I bought a box of Fuerte Magnum then bought a box of Belicoso's... they're both an outstanding cigar... I never had a bad one yet. Had to try them right out of the box right away and what a nice cigar. Not only it the taste good but what a greata looking cigar.
Nice job Famous... you have a winner in this product.

we've all seen this mottled wrapper before and for me every time it's proved a hit.the pre light draw was snug and tasted sweet and opened up upon lighting easing the draw and producing tons of smoke,burns fairly straight and cool creamy in the first inch and showing more octane.the finish is satisfying and lingers. i recommend rolling lrg rings frequently to keep them burning right and it helped this one as it tended to lean a bit these cigars are well packed, a box of mag is like 2#! midway and still burning cool and even after tipping off and revealing a long cone it now looks like a small grease fire in this office!the pre light draw taste is still there these undoubtedly will age well.hard as a rock to the nub.will revisit these in spring

Bad, bad, bad, save your money. Very dry, hard, brittle, and very hard draw. Disappointed not sure if it's the cigar or Famous have had same problem with other sticks from Famous.

"One of the best"
Bought two boxes at auction and so far smoked 4, perfect draw - it's harder to breathe! I found more medium than full in strength but full flavoured without being overpowering, the ash did not stay on long which suprised me, I would have expected an inch at least but didn't affect the quality of the smoke, more of an aestetic thing for me. Good looking Gar and burned very very even throughout every one I smoked, maybe they aged a bit on the flight across to Australia! Up there with the very best and I've been chuffing on cubans for 30 odd years. Will buy again when the stock diminish

Pros: Nice mild-med flavor all the way to the stub. Finishes very nicely.
Cons: Poor construction as the wrapper came apart in several places. I should have inspected the stick when it first arrived but kept in the cellophane in the humi. Otherwise I would have returned this 2nd. When I went to puff it, I noticed a 1/2 hole missing in the wrapper about mid way, the veiny binder pushing its way up. First thought was of a healed tree limb. Holding it sideways this magnum appeared rolled by an amateur with rolling peaks and valleys. Burn was uneven; runs, evens out then runs again. Draw was on the tight side too. I like a full mouth of smoke but not when my cheeks pull inwards to get it. When I decided to buy this stick ratings were in the high 9's. I see now that it has dropped considerably. Needless to say, I was disappointed with the overall quality of this stick.
