Never had these before and what a great stick they turned out to be!!! You can t beat the price!!
First off the only thing bad I have to say, is that when I ordered these smokes it was setup as a box of 50. Marketing error, and they just refunded me the amount difference from the 50 count Robustos. They are well constructed, with a nice smell, and a hardy smoke. The draw is super smooth, and a nice kicker is they are pre-punched already. So no need to worry about cracking the cap doing it yourself. The taste is nice and mild with a slight taste of spice to me. As for the full ride you get the normal cap loosening on any cigar you punch instead of cut.Of the three I ve smoked so far one has canoed slightly. Otherwise they ve been great even burns.As a new cigar I m very pleased with these babies. My only negative marks is the marketing mixup. While great, they are not worth the full price just for a 24 count box. Especially when it s supposedly a cigar for the smoker on a tighter budget. If the others are of the same taste and construction then go for the 50 counts on them.
I tried these after the Sumatras, and very glad I did. It was totally satisfying and rich, with that hint of spice. Another box is on the way.
I have tried a lot of lower end cigars and this one is the one I will continue to buy for daily burners as of now. Will probably try the other JM's but this is a keeper.
A nice tasty pleasant every day smoke. It has a great flavor a bit of spiciness, good consistancy, even burn.
It was a good smoke for the price ive just bought three singles at the local humi for about four bucks a piece after tax. Wrapper is nice small veins good seems...a deep nutty flavor to start and stays thru the smoke....turns peppery and earthy towards the end....pre punch me think its not completley hecho y mano lol split the but at three inches and the filler is long close to the binder but the center is chop....cuban sandwich style....but overall a good smoke for the money
My new favorite daily smoke! About halfway through the box, but for the price these sticks are winners. The outside Corojo wrapper is very spicy and I was worried at first that it would overwhelm the flavor, but it didn't happen. After you get this baby burning, you are smooth sailing!
little stronger than i like
Just finishing up a box of 50. Held them in the humidor for 45 days and started smoking. Decent taste but a lot of problems staying lit once the stick was half-finished. The Dominician is a better cigar in my opinion.
Got a couple of these in a sampler and they seemed pretty good. Went and bought a box of 50 and they seemed like a different cigar. Smoked a couple out of the box, and as I was smoking, I kept getting these bits of tobbacco coming out the end. I unwrapped what was left and surprise... a mixed filler cigar. Little frosty over that because they re advertised as long filler. All in all they re not the worst cigars around... but certainly nothing I d pay more than a dollar each for. At the price Famous is asking, better options are available.
