Cigar Review: Famous Nicaraguan 3000 Robusto

The Cigar Review

This review is on a value cigar that has been a regular in my humidor for years.  If you are a regular to online cigar blogs or forums you have probably heard of the Nic 3000 a couple of times. I was gifted a couple of these years ago by a friend and have had them on hand ever since. The bad thing is that you will not be able to stop down at your local cigar shop and and pick one up. These are sold through Famous Smoke online. You can however pick up singles, 5-packs and bundles. Even though you will be paying more of a mid-value price when purchasing singles it is always nice to have the option.

Running a little over $2 per stogie when purchased in a 20 cigar bundle I think the Famous Nicaraguan 3000 is one of the best full body value cigars around. The robusto weighs in at a hefty 5×54 with Nicaraguan tobacco’s and a Ecuadorian Habano wrapper. This fat cigar is more of a oval/half box press than not making it is easy to hold and smoke. The draw is good all the way through and you get plenty of flavorful smoke. The ash and burn on this cigar is perfect, it burns like a $10+ smoke. I’m amazed every time I fire one up and watch how tight the white ash holds on to this dark cigar. The burn line is razor sharp all the way down never needing any of your attention.

The flavor of the the Nicaraguan 3000 is earthy and has some spice. Just a good complex smoke that keeps you wanting more. Not much else to say here. The one tip I do have is to let this cigar rest in your humidor for a while. The longer it ages the better it seems to get.

Nicaraguan Bottom Line

I have nothing riding on this cigar review, just the satisfaction of sharing a great value smoke with people that may have not tried them yet. If you have not gave the Nicaraguan a chance yet, you might want to pick a couple up. If you like full body cigars, this just might get a permanent spot in your humidor. I will update this post with pictures from the next one I smoke.

Have you had this cigar? What are your thought on them?
