Few brands receive acclaim as often and widespread as Man O' War. This big league brand hails from Nicaragua, a product of AJ Fernandez. Each cigar is chock full of aged, Cuban-seed tobaccos and sits heavy in the hand....a well-made series of impressive creatures ready to deliver gobs of Nicaraguan flavor. This 12-cigar sampler showcases all three Man O' War lines - four cigars each from the original Man O' War, Ruination, and mild-bodied Virtue. A delicious taste from one of the hottest boutique brands on the market today.
The Man O' War Six-Pack Sampler includes: 4 - Man O' War Robusto (5.5" x 50) 4 - Man O' War Ruination Belicoso #1 (5.75" x 56) 4 - Man O' War Virtue Toro (6" x 50)
“Let's start with the Virtue... buttery smooth, fantastic draw, long ash, and consistant flavor and burn. My favorite mild - medium cigar. It's as close to a perfect light smoke as I've ever had. The regular Man 'O War cigar is equally well constructed, but much more full-bodied. Again, superb construction, draw, burn and flavor. An excellent medium - full cigar with lots of consistant flavor. Ruination... The King of the line. Flawless full-flavored cigar. The construction, burn and draw are outstanding, as is the appearance. The flavor is very complex and changes throughout the smoke, but never becomes bright or hot - even at the last inch of the cigar. This is my favorite cigar - bar none.
I haven't had the slightest issue with any of the main-line MOW cigars. This sampler is a great deal for conniseurs and beginners alike. Excellent cigars at an excellent price!”

“Only smoked the Virtue thus far - want to humidify this lot over the winter, but couldn't wait. Great looking cigar, near perfect wrapper. GREAT experience overall. Great medium-mild flavor. Draw was just right, and a slow even burn: had at least two inches of firm ash, very impressive construction. Lots of smoke. I assume the Ruination and straight Man o War will be fabulous as well. CI is correct in pushing these. Few products shake out the way you want and live up to what others tell you, but the Virtue delivers. I'm a fan.”

“Great sampler. No bad ones in the bunch. Had a couple of them with some wrapper issues, but nothing I couldn't handle. My 1-3 ranking goes Virtue, Orig. MOW, Ruination. Virtue is amazing, Orig. MOW is great and the Ruination is pretty good, but you had better be in the mood for a FULL FLAVOR experience with that one. I will be buying this sampler again.”

“MOW Dirty dozen; well once again AJ's full bodied tobacco is top notch. I wonder why they rate the MOW virtue as mild-med. To me its med-full bodied without a doubt. The MOW flagship robusto is the finest, tastiest I've smoked yet and the MOW runiation I haven't got to yet but by the looks of them, they wont disapoint either. I hit bingo on CI's whack a deal and picked up the twelve pack for $29 and some change. What a deal. UMPF”

“I love a great smoke from Man O' War. These cigars were top notch. I was surprised by Virtue's smoke. I thought it was going to be a typical weak flavored cigar but Man O' War proved me wrong. Man O' War Original always satisfies, but Ruination upped the ante just a bit more with its flavor palette. I will definitely keep these bad boys in rotation to my humidor.”
