La Floridita Belicoso
La Floridita Belicoso Maduro cigars present a well-balanced, robust mix of Dominican & Nicaraguan tobaccos with a Dominican binder wrapped in an oily, Connecticut Maduro wrapper for extra depth. The result is an earthy, medium to full-bodied, and beefy everyday cigar at a fantastic price.
Bought a bundle to give out when my baby girl is born b/c it was cheap. the 1st one i lit up surprised the H-E-double-hockey stix out of me! very nice taste, sort of dark and meaty with chocolate and cedar tones, medium to full bodied, finished well, nice even burn with white ash, good (if not great) construction. very happy! last nite my bro and i smoked another one, and he stated it was probably in his top 25 smokes of all time (and he's been an avid smoker for 10+ years). very good deal for $1 each. will buy more.
These cigars continue to amaze me and my friends. Several times a year I travel to an out of state convention of co-workers, some of whom smoke cigars, usually expensive. I always take a batch of La Floriditas to share, especially with those who forget to pack some of their own, or to trade with those who do not. Again, in October 2005, the La Floriditas were smoked by all to rave reviews and comments. I believe this trip resulted in several converts to La Floridita. I never have to worry about trading one of these for any cigar costing more, even much, much more. The other parties to the trades are always satisfied, and amazed when I reveal that these cigars are under $2.00 each. Please keep them coming!
Nice slow burn, easy draw, enjoyable flavor.
Ordered a bundle of the torps in maduro after reading so much about how wonderful the originals were. Since these were made in a different factory I had no idea what I would be getting. I haven't a clue what the first run La Floridita's tasted like, but they couldn't be better than these. The cigars have a distinct leathery aroma before lighting. The smoke is pleasant, full bodied, but not harsh with a nice spiciness and a unique flavor I can't put my finger on. This cigar is a very pleasant surprise and doesn't deserve to come in a bundle, but I for one am glad it does! It has become one of my favorites and I'm definitely ordering more. Thank you Famous!
