Famous Nicaraguan 3000 Toro

Famous Nicaraguan 3000 Toro Cigar

Nicaragua

I am currently on the last third of my first [Famous Nicaraguan Selection] 3000 Toro and I’m thoroughly enjoying this stick! Great flavor that I agree is similar to the Padrons I’ve smoked and it also reminds me a little of the Reo. Handsome wrapper, firm construction, the ash holds to about an inch and a quarter, but remember I’m a clod. Looking into the ash, you can clearly see the variation in color, the wrapper and filler ash are both light gray and the binder ash is more of a charcoal color. Another thing I liked is that this one tasted good from first light, unlike the Flor De Olivia that takes me an inch or two to begin to enjoy. When I first clipped it, the draw seemed a little tight and that combined with the firm feel had me a little worried that it may be a tough draw all the way but it was not. The draw was just fine and every one produced generous amounts of thick white smoke.

I had the misfortune of being standby tech guy at work today for a senior management meeting at a remote site and I thought I’d be bored to death. I went out at lunch and picked up a Romeo y Julieta 1875 Bully 5″ X 50 that helped a lot. But, I actually think I enjoyed this smoke more. And
considering I paid $4.75 for the R&J and it had burn issues and developed a crack, this Famous is IMO a better stick.
