I wanted to wait until I had smoked several of these before I gave a review because I couldn't believe how good these 3000's were! The construction is flawless, with a smooth wrapper that has not yet unraveled or flaked; I've smoked premium cigars that have had lesser construction qualities. The draw is always perfect, and the burn is great, as I think I had to correct it once. The smoke volume is impressive also, pumping out tons of creamy white smoke. The flavor of these is what really floors me, though. Very zesty without being bitter or stinging on the tongue, and about midway through it really builds in strength. My first couple made me a bit woozy, not nauseous, just a feeling unlike ANY cigar I've smoked. Even down to the nub, these don't burn hot; just warm, smooth smoking pleasure. I think a previous review suggested plutonium for filler? That's about accurate. These are great after a good meal with a beer or your favorite beverage; very hearty and long lasting. Great aroma too. Not reccomended on an empty stomach. I'll definately order more of these. Keep up the good work Famous!
GOT THIS AS PART OF THE NIC 3000 SAMPLER AND SO FAR THIS WAS THE BEST OF THE PACK FULL FLAVOR AND SPICY VERY WELL BALANCED WITH GREAT AROMA AND FLAVOR! AS GOOD AS ANY CIGAR TWICE THE PRICE WOULD STACK UP WITH ANY NAME BRAND OUT THERE!...WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HUMI?
looks good burns good taste good not bad at all for the money spent
October 13, 2007 I posted my comments on this cigar. Yesterday, 10/12/2009 I ordered two bundles, that says a lot. I've smoked over 200 cigars, some same label, some different, this one ranks among to top 10 EASILY. This is my go to cigar from now on.
AFTER 30 YEARS OF CIGAR SMOKING I HAVE FINALLY FOUND THE "HOLY GRAIL" FOR ALL SERIOUS FULL BODIED CIGAR AFFICIONADO'S....THE N3K. I ORDERED A COUPLE OF BUNDLES LAST WEEK AND WERE DELIVERED VERY PROMPTLY. TO BE QUITE FRANK, I REALLY WAS NOT EXPECTING MUCH FROM THESE OR ANY BUNDLED CIGAR...BOY WAS I IN FOR A PLEASANT SURPRISE!IT WAS LOVE AT FIRST SIGHT THESE DARK BEAUTIES WERE EXTREMELY WELL CONSTRUCTED AND THE SWEET AROMA PERMEATED THROUGH THE CELLOPHANE.THIS WAS JUST THE BEGINING.THE RAZOR SHARP WHITE ASH WAS FIRMLY ATTACHED, THE DRAW AFFORDED ME VOLUMES OF THICK SMOKE.IT FELT GOOD IN MY HAND...IT LOOKED GOOD. THIS FULL BODIED/FULL FLAVORED CIGAR HAD A PERFECT BALANCE. I THOUGHT THIS IS JUST TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE...IT WILL SURELY SOUR OR BURN FLAT HALF WAY DOWN, AN INEVIDABLY "SHORT FINISH".....BUT IT DIDN'T...IT JUST GOT BETTER. I COULDN'T PUT THIS CIGAR DOWN. I SMOKED IT DOWN TO THE NUB! THIS CIGAR COULD EASILY SELL FOR TWICE THE COST.THIS WAS TRUELY ONE OF THE BEST CIGARS I HAVE EVER SMOKED.A FLAWLESS CIGAR IN EVERY ASPECT. CONGRATULATIONS ON SUCH A FINE PREMIUM SMOKE AND THANK YOU YOU SO VERY MUCH!
Terrific cigar that has it all.And even better, it's practically free.My wife loves them - I stopped spending the big bucks on Cubans. This is the perfect Holiday gift for the uninitiated.
Terrific cigar at unbelieveable price point.The whole Nicaraguan 3000 line is a must buy.They will become a staple in my humi.Probably the finest bundle I've ever had the pleasure of buying. Try them!
I ordered the Famous Nicaraguan 3000 Toro.They sent me Cuban cigars instead!Words can't describe how good these are.Beautiful cigar; great draw; flawless construction; and the TASTE - Spectacular.
I've run with this and the torpedo style in the series and have only good things to report. Cigar holds the light, has a solid, white ash and is consistent from start to end. One of those bargain cigars that would be hard to tell without the band from the expensive ones. Burns fairly slow, and goes for a good 45 minutes if you puff on it. Overall, highly recommend these. Especially if your looking to save a few bucks and don't want to give up expensive taste, etc.
An excellent cigar! I was pleasently surprised at both the construction and taste of this cigar. I was expecting a cheap and inferior smoke due to the price but what I got was a prize winning one. I definitely recommend this one!
The latest release of these, circa 9/2009 is in stock now. The Presidentes are still a fabulous cigar in every way. Awesome construction, great draw, razor sharp burn, and delicious. Medium plus to full bodied, loaded with spice, and a true joy to smoke. Thanks Famous for keeping the brand alive and well. And a huge tip of the cap for holding the line on price. Class move.
