This maduro has a full flavored taste with a bit of spice. Good construction overall. For the price its one of the best bargains anywhere! Looks good too!
I have smoked the 8X52 Flor de Oliva for many, many years. And then Famous raised the price 25% per bundle on Father s Day and when I complained about the substantial increase in price they suggested the La Floridita Presidente as an excellent substitute. I purchased 4 bundles and wow what a terrible disappointment. They suck!! The taste is disgusting, they burn poorly and the draw is like sucking on an unlit cigar. The wrapper peals off the cigar and the burn will burn only 1/2 the circumference for about an inch and half and then you have to light it again to burn the other side of the cigar.
This is a good little cigar. It is very well constructed. I have never had one to come apart while smoking it. I have been able to get a good 11/2 inch ash on it. Stays lit and has an excellent draw. I have smoked 12 already and not a single one has been a disappointment.
This is my favorite bundle cigar of all time. I've had many. Overall a 93/100 except occasionally the wrappers flake. Who cares??? Impeccable flavor! Let sit in humidor for month and they will just get better! A!!!!
I smoke pricey top shelf smokes and good everyday ones also, these cigars are worthy of a place on the top shelf, what a group of gems. fantastic smooth flavors, some woody some creamy but all great. the maduro by Nestor Plasencia is a fly under the radar hit. just as good in the natural wrapper, the Limited is a big fat flavorful roll of smoking pleasure. and the Fuente is a treat. its not very often all the smokes in a sampler are good these are all great. let your price ego go and stock up on all of these fine smokes.
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.
This has got to be a mistake in the price of this outstanding, great tasting, easy draw, even burning CIGAR, not that I'm complaining mind you. This smoke rates (at least in my thoughts) up there with the big boys in every way but the price.. I'll have to order more before everyone finds out about this super smoke and the price goes up and the supply runs out.:)
I have had my share of cigars 286 different brands in my scrap book over the years including those some of those unmentionable cigars. Some are keepers and some just are not. The La Floridita Toro Maduro is one I will purchase again. I like the flavor, aroma, and burn. I know everyone has expectations by reading the reviews. These really matched what I was looking for, a full to medium cigar, with good flavor and aroma. I haven't experienced the burning problems most have spoken about. Some time in the humidor, toast the end good, and take slow draws and watch the bluish grey smoke roll off one of the cigar. Great with a good belt of scotch. What a treat!! If you draw it hard it will bite. I took it slow and easy and it really surprised me.
Good construction and flavor with surprising complexity. Just be sure to age for at least a few months.
I got this cigar as part of a Famous Sampler back in March. It's been in the humidor for about 3 1/2 months and I decided today was the day to try it. I have to admit that I put it off becuase of the feedback I read here. I don't know that I've ever read reviews about a cigar where the opinions were so far apart. I find the cigar to be pleasant. Nice white ash, good draw and certainly a good looking cigar. The taste is as described elsewhere - earthy with a hint of chocolate or coffee. For the price, it's not a bad smoke. I'm sure giving it time in the humidor only helped it. I would buy it again as long as I keep the price under a couple of bucks.
I was surprised how good these cigars were for the price. I tried one at the shop and was amazed on how good it was . The only thing I feel bad about on this cigar is that I hadn't tried them sooner . Pure spice. Pure flavour.
I have ordered two bundles of the Pancho Maduro now and I love them! They are a great, full bodied, everyday smoke but they also have enough flavor and intensity to enjoy after a good meal! If you like full bodied maduros, you CANNOT beat these!
