One word - Awesome!
These are really nice sticks! Sweet deal too.
This sampler is hands down the best deal on premium cigars anywhere! After I received the first one I realized maybe I'd better hurry and order a second. If you've never tried Alec Bradley cigars this sampler will be the one that keeps you coming back to AB! Thanks Cigars International I will be a patron for years to come!
Great sampler. Id love it more if it was a 20 cigar deal
One of the first sampler sets I have purchased, and I absolutely love it. Alec Bradley is quickly becoming my favorite brand. Just finish the family blend vr1. Excellent, definitely worth a box. Tempus Quadrum was one of the best smokes ever, the Harvest selection was nice, Maxx Brazil is worth 5-10 pk, my first Prensado was not that great, terrible burn and too strong or maybe it was just my mood that day. Need to try the final Prensado again.
1/23/15 Helluva deal! Buy 5 of these samplers and take stock of what you have in your possession. And just savor...
My humidors rarely, if ever, get to the point where there is less than 5 or 6 different Alec Bradley offerings marinating in a humid cedar slumber, waiting for me to indulge. If not for specials like the ABFS #2, I simply couldn't afford to stock as many of Alan Rubin's fantastic vitolas. Thanks to CI, I am saving anywhere from 1/2 to 3/4 of the MSRP on legendary stogies like Prensado, Tempus & Family Blend. All top 10 blends, but don't sleep on the rare Maxx Brazil that looks so lonely with no 90+ ratings to fall back on like it's more prestigious brethren. That is a mistake. It deserves its own high rating. In fact, I like it even more than its predecessor Maxx. Consider it a nice addition to a powerhouse lineup of some of the finest boutique cigars available. Tip: By a box of any AB cigars & receive 2 each of Prensado, Tempus, Black Market, Maxx Brazil, Connecticut & Nica Puro for a penny!
A thorough search of the site shows about the only way to lay hands on any of Alan Rubin's budget friendly Maxx Brazil sticks, is to purchase the Alec Bradley Flight Sampler No. 2. It just so happens to be the Joe Cigar Daily cigar deal today. And this month's catalog features a 12-cigar sampler with 2 MB toros, for a penny, with any AB box purchase. That's it though. No boxes or samplers available. To my knowledge. None in Clearance. As a matter of fact, no AB sticks at all. None in MMAO. I miss buying boxes of Maxx Brazil robustos & the eerie way they mimic their more costly sibling, Maxx, only fuller, partially due to the exotic oscuro wrapper leaf. Mr. Rubin has another reasonably priced masterpiece in his American Sun Grown blend. I bought a box of the coronas two weeks ago & invested less than $2.50/vitola. I am ordering the Daily Deal, which works out to under $3/unit, with 5 clams off, plus free shipping. Can you say, "Deal-i-o"? I haven't mentioned the rest of the spleefs in this quality sampler. Prensado, Tempus & Family Blend speak for themselves. The Harvest Selection '97 is not chopped liver, either. I have tried them before, but it has been a while & I can't recall the specifics. They're good, I'll attest to that. Grab an abacus, do the math & like me, hasten to put a few of these superior blunts to the test. The Maxx Brazil toro I began smoking 90 minutes ago, is now 2 1/2" long. I did relight twice & the wrapper tore when I removed the band, but it is so good, so splendid, so downright delightful, it will be the shortest butt in the can when I put it down.
Great cigars, can't beat the price.
I like samplers of one brand. This one has a very good selection of Alec Bradley's
I don't usually put too much stock in cigar "ratings". But, since these were rated up to "96" (for the Prensado), I decided to take a chance on this sampler. I'm glad I did. There isn't a bad cigar in the bunch. I actually like the Tempus better than the Prensado, but every cigar was very good. I was impressed with the draw and burn of each, and I enjoyed each one down to the last inch (burned my fingers on one - didn't want to put it down). If you've been wanting to try the higher-rated ABs, this is an excellent opportunity to do so at a great price!
Split it with a friend. Have had two of them so far, wonderful sampler.
It's a simple review: AWESOME! What else can I say; it says it all.
I order one of these on every order...fantastic bargain on some great smokes!
I couldn't pass up a Alec Bradley sampler at that price, and I am glad I didn't because 2 weeks later when I went to pick up another it was backordered. Thanks CI!
Almost all of the Alec Bradley cigars in this sampler are amazing and well worth the money. The "family blend" cigar practically fell apart but the tempus and prensado make up for the family blend cigars.
Exceptional cigars! So good, I ordered the sampler again.
Ya just have to like this sampler. 10 great robustos for a good price. Perfect after lunch bread size.
The best value on the site. These Alec Bradleys are soooo good. I bought a Flight Sampler 2 for my friend for Christmas and then bought one for myself. Six 92 and above rated cigars. Amazing. I love the Tempus Quadro the best. Saw this same cigar in a shop for $11 ON SALE! These babies go for $3.90 in this package. Great job CI!
