Cigars 101

What do the numbers mean for the Famous Nicaraguan and Dominican Thousands Series?

Reading Time: < 1 minute

A: The numbers are only an indication of the order in which the series were released. Each series features a different blend, most of the series are made at different factories – some of them among the best; and some series vary by strength. The best advice I can give you would be to read the descriptions and customer reviews, then choose the blend that best applies to the kind of cigars you enjoy smoking.
