Famous Nicaraguan Selection 1000 Lonsdale Cigar

Nicaragua

As far as the toboaccos in this cigar all I have is: made in a top Nicaraguan plant, it’s medium bodied, with Nicaraguan Long Fillers, and an Indonesian Wrapper. I smoked the Lonsdale (61/2 x 44), and the cost is $20.65 per bundle of 20. These cigars are from Famous Smoke Shop.

This is a real good smoke for the price, in fact you put rings on em and box em up they would easily be a $6.00 per stick cigar. The wrapper is smooth with very small veins and has a sweet flavor, lots of smoke, great draw, and a sturdy white ash.

What a roller coaster of a smoke (it is the old Swisher Sweet with an attitude!): It starts out with a medium-full spice (Punch style spice) for the 1st 1/3rd of the smoke, then gradually the spice turns to medium for the middle 1/3rd, and for the last 1/3rd just a hint of spice and the mild-medium flavor of the wrapper.

This is one cigar I could smoke down to the nub with no harshness. I would rate this cigar a 8.5 and highly recomend buying a bundle.
