"ok, but not great"
I got a box of these to try after smoking some perdomo fresca's. These were twice the price and not nearly as good. The flavor was a bit strong and yet non descript. Toward the end the cigar got bitter. The draw, cronstruction and look are very good, the aroma is ok. But i will not buy them again. Now if Famous will just carry the Fresca's I will be really happy.

"Bland, yet inoffensive"
I simply could not tell you how this cigar tastes because it was just plain bland. The draw wasn't all that good either... I was almost exhausted trying to keep this thing burning. Not the worst cigar I've ever tried, but not one I'd go out of my way to try again.

"What a jolt!"
This is certainly a full-bodied cigar. Would not recommend it on an empty stomach unless you are used to the real jolt from a such full strength cigars. I usually smoke maduros, but will want to try a non-maduro Habano next to see how it compliments the fillers. What a well-made cigar! The reviewer who said "put on your big guy pants" was right on. Great smoke.

"Put your BIG boy pants on"
Put your big boy pants on and hold on this cigar is ment to cap off a nice size meal, not an everyday smoke. Keep a couple to age in your humidor as they just keep getting better.

BOUGHT 2 BOXES OF PRESIDENT MADURO. IF THE OTHER 39 ARE AS GOOD AS THE FIRST, I'M HOOKED. GREAT TASTE,DRAW AND FINISH.

"A luxurious smoke."
This is one great cigar. It's luxuriously rich in flavor without being overpowering, and is satisfying on all levels. Even before it's lit, the rich aroma and silky wrapper begs you to lit it up. It seems almost edible. The Presidente vitola took me all afternoon to smoke, and at each re-light, the flavor was never bitter or harsh. This is a cigar that grabs your attention with its rich, voluminous smoke, and has now, for me, set the bar very high for other cigars to reach.
