Aromatic,Sweet,never harsh, i love these sticks and for a great price,Can not be beat.
I got one as a freebie with a much larger purchase of high end cigars that I am used to. Smoked this one first as I didn t want my humi to smell like rum. I am glad I did, it was suprisingly good. Granted, it s not a Julius Caesar or a Davidoff or even a Romeo, but for basically a buck, it was really good. I have never had a Backwoods so I cannot compare, but all things being equal, if you judge it based on it s own merits and not compared to anything else, it s quite alright. Really my only complaint is the draw was a bit tough, maybe it was just this one stick. I will be buying more.
Awsome stick burns slow with taste of spice and rum giving it 100 all the way my favorite brand
I simply can't believe I found a stick this good under 2 bucks a piece.
I always keep a bag of these on hand. They have a great flavor and are a great everyday smoke. These are also inexpensive enough to hand them out to your non cigar smoking friends to introduce them to the hobby.
These little babies are addictive! I don t even like flavored cigars, or machine made stogies. But the flavor of these little smokes is SO good I keep coming back for more. Certianly worth the low price!
My brother gave me one during his visit. We enjoyed our trader jacks on the front porch during some nice weather one evening. I was pleasantly surprised by the aroma, nice taste and even burn. I will definitely buy my own to enjoy as I do my more expensive brands.
I feel it incumbent upon me to break my rule of only reviewing cigars I actually purchase from Famous to sing the praises of this Superb Brand. Living in the same city as JC Newman, I can purchase these locally slightly cheaper but if your not as lucky as I am and of modest means, as I am, and cant afford to smoke 5 and 10 dollar sticks all the time these gems are the answer to your prayers. As soon as you open the bag your are treated to a wonderfully intoxicating scent of tobacco, rum and spice. They have a great sweet and consistent taste, good draw and even burn. A machine made that looks and smokes like a hand-rolled, these sticks would still be worth it at twice the price. If your looking for a good everyday cigar...your search is over!
All of my friends thank me for recommending this stick to them. I can t afford to smoke the 10.00 sticks everyday but the truth is the taste of this cigar is as satisfying to me as the rest.
I ordered the 30 count Humidor pack and can only say great things about them. Mild, with flavor that doesn't over do it. From start to finish it is the same cigar in terms of taste, aroma and burn consistency. The smoker will love the mildly-sweet flavor and all bystanders will love the aroma. Incidentally, from what I can tell Famous sells this 30 pack for about $5 cheaper than everyone else on the net. With shipping these are about $1.50/stick and worth well more than that. Other rum flavored cigars are a waste of time and money once you try these. My only complaint is that I wish the J.C Newman Co. would make these in a smaller size than the Lonsdale for when It's too cold outside for a 50 minute smoke. Seriously, that is the only thing I can think of to bitch about. Try them matey! I'll be giving the Humidor with the Jolly Roger logo to my grandson when I finish them.
Great everyday stick.. low cost.. never gets old.. not sure why my buddy doesn't like them. He's crazy. but hey.. i recommend them to anyone that smokes as much as me.
