After watching a day filled with sports, I figure I would turn to something that would satisfy. Therefore I selected this cigar. Looking at this cigar, it produces a nice light brown wrapper with minimal veins present. The cigar is firm with a nice cap to top it off. I proceeded to clip and take a pre-draw and the flavor that came to mind right away was an earthy flavor and a flavor of dirt. Yes, dirt. It tasted like I ate a mud pie. Yuck. Anyway, the draw was good and the aroma was a sweet tobacco smell.
The first couple of puffs that I took were harsh, but that subsided therafter. A fair amount of smoke was produced from the good draw. The burn however was a bit uneven, but was not that bad. Flavor profile is a nice creamy flavor that is excellent. Finish is short, the way I like it. A nice light gray ash is accompanied by this cigar.
The cigar at this point did not let me down one bit. Draw is still good, flavor consistant, pleasant aroma, and still lots of smoke. The ash is holding on well. It finally fell after about 1 1/2 inches maybe 2 inches. Fell right on my damn leg. The burn however was still a bit off, but like before no big deal.
There is not really much to say about this cigar at this point. The burn did even out perfectly. Everything else is as good as it was from the start. The ash held on beautifully as it did in the 2/3 of the cigar.
As stated above. There is not really a lot to say about this cigar. It was good all the way around, except for the minor burn issue in the beginning, but that self corrected. There were no flavor changes in this cigar. Was a one flavor cigar. In this case it was a good flavor that I had no problem if it stayed or changed. No issues with anything else. Overall a very decent smoke. Being a bundled cigar, I would of thought that these would be a lot worse than what they were. This Famous Dominican 2000 surprised the hell out of me at how good it was. I would definitely tell you to try this cigar. It's very inexpensive and is well worth the price. If you can find these on Famous's Auction than I would say bid on it, if not, spend the extra few dollars and just buy it from there store online. You will not be disappointed.
