This cigar is not your typical after dinner cigar. The taste is somewhat inconsistant, but always pleasant. This is a great outdoors cigar for the golf course or the lake. The taste holds up to a little wind. All in all, well worth the price!
I think these guys need to re-think what a really good cigar is all about. OK as a "cheapie" but shouldn't be passed off as a premium. Didn't make my lips pucker but the taste has a lot to be desired. Also, I thought I would need a vacuum pump to draw any smoke from this stick. I bought 6 to give them a try. Smoked 3 and promptly gave the others away.
I AM RELUCTANT TO TELL EVERY ONE HOW GOOD THESE CIGARS ARE. MORE DEMAND EQUALS MORE DOLLARS! I BOUGHT ONE IN A SAMPLE PACK. NOW I WANT A BUNDLE!
I won these cigars on auction. I thought I had gotten a great bargain . Was I ever mistaken. The burn was horrible. I had to keep relighting. Sparks flew. I burned a hole in my trousers. I threw the remaining cigars away.
This cigar tastes so good with coffee, american whiskey, or a strong malt like a Bass Pale Ale or Sam Adam's Boston Lager, you literally won't believe what your taste buds are telling you. I can't believe the price is so low. I picked up a box at auction for like $10(no sh*t, I think it was actually $9). I'm four cigars into the bundle and I give them a 10 for consistency. Let's all agree right now that we won't bid more than $10, and just take turns picking up a bundle every few months as they come up for auction :)
Have seen these in the cataloge for years. I guess the phrase "they may not burn perfectly" shyed me away. Finally decided to try something different. Being retired, my cigar budget is somewhat limited to this price range. Well, I'm ordering my third bundle and so far have not had one stick that did not meet my expectations. They burn good, draw good and have a great earthy taste. My only problem is, my FDO's now have competition in my humidors (3). Now I have to decide on a sweet cap, or an earthy taste. But then life is tough sometimes. Bill
Good flavor considering the price. A good everyday cigar. I will buy more.
I have but two of these left from my first bundle and I'll reorder them in my next purchase. I'm not good at describing cigar flavors, but the Primo De Cuba has more then one note that pleases my taste buds. They're good down to the last inch.
Mind you I am a buck private in the cigar smoking ranks. After smoking Backwoods for 15 months, I've turn to Famous to explore the world more premium smokes.This was only my 4th cigar smoked out of the samplers I've ordered. After a clumsy lighting ceremony, it took about 3,4 minutes for the uneven burn to straighten out. Midway through I really enjoyed the flavor and aroma of this stick. And right toward the end I could swear I tasted some Boston Creme Pie! Okay, not really, but this novice liked cigar and will buy more.
This cigar is worth several times the sale price. It has a firm, silvery-white ash; great construction and taste, slow-burning with oodles of white smoke. Leaves a pleasant sensation on the palate with peppery notes.
Superior construction, enjoyable smoke with nice transitions. Easy and nice on the retrohale AND well under $5 per stick for a box of 20. They even had some tooth. This will be a staple in my humidor!
