Cigars 101

What does the serie number signify on the Famous Thousands cigars?

A: The numbers are merely an indication of the order in which the cigars were released. The same goes for the Famous “Thousands” Honduran cigars. Each number, or selection, is a different blend. Some are in the same strength or have similar wrappers under their number as others. The best advice is to read the descriptions of each brand and the customer reviews; then choose the blend that best suits the kind of cigar you enjoy smoking.
