I bought a box of the naturales during the intro period for $29.95 (40 sticks!) and my, what i bargain it proved to be. Smooth, mild and lots of smoke with floral hints, consistent burn, its a really good bargain. Perfect everyday, anytime smoke!!! Although it did not last very long =( took me a mere 30minutes to finish it. Overall an outstanding cigar considering the price... but to a limit. I dont think i will take a long time for me to finish this box!
Snagged a box off of Cigar Monster. Smoked one out of the box off the UPS van, and have been smoking them well aged. Not much of a difference with aging. They are listed as a MEDIUM strength cigar, but to be honest, they are extremely mild. I don't sense much for "flavor" because it is very subtle. Would I buy them again? No. Very hard to finish off the box, but have been handing them out to friends who have yet to smoke a cigar. They are taking a liking to them since they are very mild. In the end, probably a way better smoke with your morning coffee.
I wasn t expecting a whole lot with these. However, they are great! I get lots of citrus bite and some creamy floral notes. Rossdo wrapper, perhaps Whatever the case, this was a very good box choice for a quick or budget smoke. Well worth the price!00
smooth and creamy, great for any time. box stamped 'Honduras' not Nicaragua. either way, I go through these things like potato chips.00
These smokes are some tasty little suckers. It is my 1st box of these but had no problems with ANY of them. Will give high marks all around. Thanks again Famous for a great cigar at an affordable price!!!00
The flavor of these is quite good. For the size they concentrate excellently all the way to the end with a large sweet zone beginning early on. No sharp overtones or dirty undertones. Smooth and increasingly sweet with good body. They are a little soft in construction but are consistent and have a nice chew to them as a result. Excellent!! All my ratings are rounded down for this review.00
At first I was skeptical about a $1 cigar being of good quality and great taste.But that is not a problem with the "Famous Buenos Naturals" in the natural or maduro.00
Overall I am really impressed with these little guys, especially for the price. I had previously been buying RP juniors Connecticut for my main short smoke but these have passed those as my favorite. I would definitely call these mild even though they are listed as medium. They are similar in every way to the best ones I get out of a box of the RP juniors, but these have more flavor and last a little longer, I m sure due to their slightly larger size 42 as opposed to 38 . The flavor is good but one dimensional. I have fewer problems with uneven burn with these guys than with the RP. Some of the RP juniors seem to stay on the dry and harsh side despite being properly humidified. My best guess is this is also a Connecticut wrapper. I will gladly continue to pay $1 each for these. Try them. If you are a stogie head like me, as opposed to being an elite smoker cigar snob, I am sure you will also be happy with them.00
I got a box of these little gems and I must say that I have enjoyed smoking them. Great construction, perfect draw. The flavor did have a little bit of a bite to it when I first got them, but a little time in the humidor smoothed that problem out. Very nice 20 to 25 minute cigar. I got 5 singles of the Cattivo Neros to give them a try also. The first one was good. Nice burn, good draw, alright flavor. As for the rest, I could not get any to draw. I tried but nothing worked to get a better draw so I just gave the last 2 away. Don't think I'll try them again.00
Purchased the maduro box by mistake, but went through them anyway. I was looking for a short smoke, something you could take on a break, etc. That worked out ok. The cigars varied a bit. Some, maybe half, were rather funky and reminded me of the ones you get in the low priced bundles. The other half were pretty good, smoked well and did the job. They were more on the medium-full end flavor wise. For the price, pretty good stuff. A step up, or sideways, from Perrogies (spelling), the ones we used to call Mill Rat cigars back in South (side of) Chicago.00

They smoke, draw, and burn well. Construction is fairly good and consistent. The taste is okay, but not the best. I personally spend the couple extra bucks for the Rocky Juniors which I consider the next rung higher up.00
