Review Notes: Still a superb smoke. They look so perfect that I'm always reluctant to put the torch to it. Leathery, earthy, and (I hate to use the already abused term, but...) twangy. Unmistakably Habano. An easygoing medium body, as I smoked this with morning coffee and it didn't overwhelm. Lacks the depth of an RC or a RASS, but there's always a place for these in my humi.

Review Notes: A little over two years old now. Medium strength, a ton of smooth flavor. Leather, hints of earth, a lot more cocoa than I noticed a few months ago. And since I didn't mention it in my last review, what a great size! Robusto-meets-corona gorda. I put the Famoso right up there with a RASS and just a click below the Boli RC.

"A staple"

Review Notes: These were early-'05 production, as I recall. Perfectly uniform wrapper color with an occasional thin vein. Draw is effortless, producing clouds of dense smoke, though it can burn hot if you get overzealous (as I'm prone to do). Rich tobacco flavors with leather and a touch of earth. Chewy, oily mouth feel. While it may not have the complexity of some of its Habano brethren, the VR Famoso is a solid anytime kinda smoke. A staple in my humidor.
