    I hope it's not a mistake either. I did notice that the X torpedos are 52 ring guage and the Famous 3000 torpedos are listed as 54 ring guage. Just a thought.

    from the picture on famous' website that looks like the proper color. The Series X by EO was not a maduro process wrapper, it was a natural wrapper

    As soon as I receive mine I will let you know. Maybe you could call them if that is not soon enough.

    How would you guys compare these with the JDN Antanos (stregnth, flavor, etc..)?

    Not an easy comparision. Less raw harsh strength. More flavorful and rich.

    I had planned on ordering a bundle of the robusto size at the link, but can't get past the allow cookies page!!

    All preference settings were at allow all cookies, tried on both firefox and IE, but get same stopping point!!

    Guess the site does not like me.

    Talked with famous managment today and they assured me that these are not Oliva Series X. They are not Oliva tobacco.

    Have not had them but people say they are great cigars either way. no matter who makes them or what tobacco is used. RJT
