Definitely my go-to stick when I want a tried and true pleasurable experience. Smooth, creamy with hints of caramel and almond, cedar and roasted nuts...deelish!
I ve had a few of the Epicures before in samplers and I thought they were a terrific cigar, so when Famous sent out an email last week about Pete the Price Cutter and I saw these at a price that you literally couldn t refuse it was like stealing I ordered a few samplers. I m smoking one now right off the truck and it s perfect. Look, taste, draw... perfect. So, Famous-Smoke, I believe Pete is a keeper. Let me know when he starts slashing prices again. I want in! Thank you!
This cigar really deserves a 100. Will you once in a blue moon get one with a blemish, tight draw, diagonal burn, bursting binder, or a bit off-taste? Of course you will. But so will you with any brand / make cigar. This robusto is remarkably consistent. It has great taste I really don t know from leather, moss, berries, spices, wood, smoke, or whatever--and I really wonder who does , a pleasant aroma have had many compliments from gals who says it reminds them of their dads or gramps back in the day , and a nice ash. It is my every day, all day, holiday, and celebration day cigar. Just wish they were a little cheaper. Try one, you won t be disappointed. Mild/Medium--doesn t leave you dizzy even on an empty stomach .
I'm usually a maduro smoker and had the Champagne suggested to me by one of the Famous staff. A delightful change to heavier cigars with an interesting mix of flavours that keep me going back for more. I've recommended this to friends who are experienced cigar smokers and they too have reacted the same way.
I bought several different brands of the Double Connecticut wrapper cigars and bought a smaller version of this cigar in that bunch. I liked it so much, I bought a five pack of these,(Churchills). These are a very nice change of pace from my steady diet of Monticristos,(3s, Double Coronas and the Classics). I am looking to order a box of these as soon as I can make the space for them in one of my humidors,(so they don't have to share a room).
One of my favorite cigars. It is a smooth smoke, has a good burn and draw. There's only one reason they are on backorder right now and aren't available in singles or 5 pks right now, because they are so good!
But this is definitely not the case here. All of the cigars in the champagne series I have personally smoked have been great. Smooth, creamy, flavorful and down right good. If some of you that are having bad experiences with cigars would join A cigar forum, others with more experience might have A few pointers to help you out. Most often bitterness in A cigar is simply to much moisture. Give them time to level out then rate your cigars, you might see A big deference
I went with some buddies to the smokey mountains last weekend for a 20 mile hike. At the end of the first day, nothing was better than sitting by a camp fire and smoking one of these Perdomo 10th Ann Churchills. Guys, do yourself a HUGE favor, buy a box! Give one to a good friend and they'll think highly of you. So smooth with almost no after taste!
Nick hit a winner with this one. I've been smoking them since they came out and no matter what else I try, I go back to this cigar. It has impeccable construction, great taste and a smooth burn. I have never had one plug. This will remain a staple in my humidors as long as they are available. The only thing that could be better is if you made the Anniversary with a Rosado wrapper.
Absolutely a true champagne?
