The Famous Smoke Shop Exclusive La Floridita Gold is a mid priced cigar available in Churchill, Toro, and Robusto, each priced between $3 and $5.

From the decent triple cap to a spongy but clean foot, the Gold is not a looker but rather has the appearance of just a solid everyday cigar. It has several prominent veins and some soft spots throughout, but the overall quality seems to be fairly solid. On the draw, it has a nice pull and offers flavors of nutmeg and a buttery cream.

On the light, the flavors are smooth and creamy and offer a nice toasty balance. As the La Floridita progresses the cigar is fairly one dimensional, maintaining the creamy smooth flavors with an occasional mix of cedar and butter entering the pictures.

Across each sample the burn was consistent and the construction was solid. Overall, this is a nice cigar that is great early in the morning with coffee or for yard work, but it’s not one that I’d turn to late at night or after a large meal. I’d keep a few of these on hands, and I think it would be a very nice smoke for a less seasoned smoker as well. For a little over $3 I’d definitely recommend this cigar.
