An amazing buy for the full-bodied cigar smoker. Nicaraguan Sel. 3000 Grande Robusto cigars are made with a robust blend of diverse Nicaraguan tobaccos draped in dark, oily Ecuadorian-grown Habano wrappers. The smoke is spicy, earthy, complex, yet never overpowering, even at a 60-gauge ring!
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 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!
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!
Dear Joe, I felt bad when I read of the bad reaction (sores in your mouth for a week) after smoking one of these cigars. Must've been painful. I feel for you bro'. I had a similar reaction (quite awhile ago) to an Arturo Fuente Curly Head cigar (not sore for a whole week though). I still can barely look at one, but I've enjoyed other better Fuente cigars since. Likewise I've had a good measure of the N3K's in different sizes, the GR being my favorite, and I've never had a problem. (And I always try to drink/irrigate my mouth with cold water or simple beverage as I enjoy my smoke to keep my mouth from getting stressed.) So what I'm thinking is that it's an allergic reaction specific to you (or maybe interaction with medication or something you ate or drank before or during the smoke). One of my friends is an allergist and my MD (and occasional cigar buddy) who helped me with a serious allergic reaction to an antibiotic & with other incidents ... so, you might check with a good allergist and get checked out. Hope you feel better. If it's any consolation, I'm sure there are many afficionados here who'd buy the remainders from you if you haven't trashed them.
