Cheap Cigars that taste Expensive

Since the last post time has been limited on cigar reviews, but
soon new affordable cigar reviews are planned for future posts.

Here is a new found gem of a cigar  that wont break the Wallet.

I will say up front Smoking only 2 of these so far I cant give
a full review but from what was tried these have lots of flavor
and smoke and taste great.

These are the
Famous Nicaraguan Habano Rubusto.

The cigars appearance is kinda veiny and rough with a
few spots here and there and they will split if not careful.
but they do burn great and have decent flavor profile for the
money.  The Habano wrapper if your a fan really is great.

Currently these are on sale of The Famous website.
Here is the direct link.

Here are a couple pics of the cigar out of the Cello wrap.

ValueLine Honduran 200 Robusto Cigars Initial Look

Value Line Honduran 200 Robusto Cigars

First to say currently these are on closeout on Famous Cigars
website.
The link is posted below.
Value Line Robusto Cigars

Right now you can get a bundle of 20 of these for $16.97
plus shipping.  For a hand rolled cigar this is a very
decent price.

Here are initial thoughts and inspection on these Honduran cigars.

These are listed as 5 x 50 ring gauge but they are fat.  If you ask me
they are larger than 50.

They are packed tight and have a nice tobacco aroma.  The wrapper
is a nice brown color the website says Criollo.





















Visually these have a nice wrapper with a few rough spots, but overall don't look to bad.
Pictures are worth more than words in this case.
































So far three of these were smoked, a full review will be posted soon when
more are smoked.

The Trouble with your cigar

Here is a cigar scenario that may have happened to you.

You just purchased a cigar you have been dying to try from your local smoke shop.


Without thinking first thing after taking it out of the cello you do is tear the cigar band off
and along with it comes half the cigar leaf!

You light the cigar after feeling like you just wrecked the whole damn thing, and you were
right.   Even though the first part of the cigar was good, the wrapper is unravelling
like paper.

Here is a cigar tip if you don't know this already. 

Before you take the band off your cigar for your collection, try smoking half or more
of the cigar.   The heat from the stogie will loosen up the band and should peel
apart easily.

Cigar Band Page Update Carinos

A New band has been added to the line up on the cigar bands page.
If you want to see the  Stogie bands page..... the link is posted below.

Also a brief review of Carinos Cigar.

This is a nice cigar for the money, both the Maduro and Natural Versions
have been tried.  In order to give a lengthy opinion on the smoke a few
more samples will be tried but initially these burn great and have a
excellent draw.

The Maduro is favored here, very earthy flavors with a rich looking
dark maduro leaf.
