Default Famous Nicaraguan 7000 figurado

The latest addition to the Famous Thousand Series is another Oliva-made cigar, like the Nic 2000 and 3000. I was hoping that these were a project that got canceled, which is what the 3000 was.

But smoking my second one now, after a 2 month nap in the humi, I must say that I don't think this is the case. I think these are just a cheap bundle cigar. Construction is good. Wrappers have a lot of blemishes. Perhaps Oliva needed to do something with these ugly wrappers and made a deal with Famous. I don't know, but I do know that the Nic 7000 gets a big thumbs down at this point. I'll give 'em a few more months in the humi and try another one.

Thanks for taking one for the team! You’ve reminded me to pull a 3000 out for later.

Quite a few years ago, these were great. Not quite sure what happened to them. It is sad.
