Stogiereview.com reviews the Famous Nicaraguan 3000

Length: 5.00
Ring Gauge: 54
Strength: Full

Last night I went out to dinner with my girlfriend, and a couple that my girlfriend is very close with. When I got home I just felt like a beer and a good cigar, so that’s just what I did. I poured myself a cold glass of Yuengling and started to dig through my overfilled cooler of cigars. I pulled out a Famous Nicaraguan 3000 Robusto. This was a cigar I received in a trade. I’ve heard a lot of good things about this stick so I decided to give it a shot.

This cigar is a house brand from Famous Smoke Shop here in PA. It is packaged in bundles of twenty without bands. To be completely honest, when you look at this cigar and you know what they cost, it is really easy to be skeptical. After reading reviews done by respectable people in the little corner of the cigar community I am a part of, I was looking forward to giving it a try.

I went with my v-cutter on this one. The cap cut very clean with no effort. I pulled out my torch lighter and got to down to business. The cigar lit very easily and was producing lots of flavorful smoke. I took a quick couple of puffs and sat down the cigar in the ashtray.

I racked a game of pool and continued with my cigar. The flavor was extremely consistent. There was some spice, a little pepper, and earthy tones throughout the entire stick. I got so wrapped up in this cigar that I totally lost track of my game of pool.

After about an hour and a half I was forced to put down the cigar and call it a night. This was the first cigar I’ve had the opportunity to smoke that when I was finished I wanted to light up another one right then and there.

To wrap up this review, I think this cigar is amazing for the price. I was so impressed by this stick I ordered a bundle this morning. Famous didn’t have the Robusto size in stock so I went with the torpedo. At 39.95 a bundle and free shipping for the time being, I don’t see any reason not to order a bundle of these to try. If you are a full bodied cigar smoker these sticks will not disappoint you.
