Famous Nicaraguan Selection 1000 Torpedo
Nicaraguan Selection 1000 cigars are medium-bodied premium cigars handmade at one of Nicaragua's top factories. The cigars are blended with Nicaraguan longfiller tobaccos rolled in your choice of aromatic Indonesian wrappers with sweetened caps, or richer-tasting Broadleaf Maduro wrappers. The smoke is smooth, well-balanced and earthy with notes of caramel and sweet spice on the finish. If you're a bargain hunter, order a bundle now and taste for yourself. You'll be pleasantly surprised.
Since I could not rate the one I actually purchased, the 3000, due to an out of stock situation - come-on Famous...let's do a better job keeping these available as singles - this cigar was an absolute joy to smoke. Good consistent flavor throughout. Above average construction. Burned even from beginning to end. You don't have to work this stick to get a good smoke draw like some other house brands I have tried. This cigar has become one of my favorites and can be found in my humidor always. Again, Famous...when I can get them in one size or another. Famous has one hell of a winner here!
I have a tough time finding every day cigars to fill my needs and not break the bank. It always seems to happen, I find a bundle smoke, I enjoy them and want more only to find them out of stock. You can buy 100 buck a box cigars all day long but try and find a favorite bundle thats this good for under 30 bones. They always disappear in a flash.
Just got them yesterday and tried one then and two today.Nice white ash, no burn problem, nice maduro taste, with just a slight bite to it. Rolled well, no lose spots and good draw.The downside... Of the three the first two started to unravel half way through. The third I selected from the middle of the bundle and had no problem so maybe they just need a little humi time.If I don't have any more unraveling problem after letting them sit for a week or two I'll definitely buy more.
I love the Nic 1000 robusto and thought I would give these a try as I like torpedo s. These have the worst loose draw I have ever experienced, absolutely no resistance. Very loose pack and spongy. Of the bundle I cut and tried 8 and they were all the same, no way will I waste the money on these again as not a single cigar was smokeable.
