Famous Honduran 2000 Robusto cigars sport a medium to full-bodied blend of well-aged Nicaraguan and Dominican tobaccos, surrounded in dark Ecuadorian sun-grown wrappers. While robust, the smoke is well-balanced and never overpowering, dishing up an earthy profile kissed by a touch of sweet spice.
I received this in my first Medium body sampler. I have always smoked mild in the past but thought I would give them a try. This was the second brand from the set and I found it to be very good. A lot better then the Cuba that was in the sampler.
I received two of these in a sampler pack. Well the first try was horrible. Difficult to light, had to double draw to get a good amount of smoke, had to relight it a couple of times and just generally tasted horribly to my palate. Hopefully, the second will see some improvement sitting some spanish cedar for a few months. I doubt I'll be looking for any deals on this brand. Good thing is there a ton of other good cigars offered here on Famous!
Bought it after seeing what I thought might have been a steal on cigarmonster.com, for 20 bucks you can't lose right???So anyways, even after letting these sit in the humidor for a couple months, no improvement in taste. As a previous review stated, it does taste like you are trying to smoke a paper bag, or even cardboard. The friends definitely didn't like this one either!
I did not have high expectations due to the excellent price. What awaited me was nothing short of an epiphany. The flavor, consistency, and burn were simply perfect. It had a medium body, with earthy and sweet flavors on the finish. I recommend this cigar to anyone who wants to know what a good Honduran cigar tastes like.
