“One of the BEST deals going! I LOVE the Miamis', my new top of the line smoke. The Aves' were not a disappointment but expected more. For the money cannot be beat.”
“The Ave Maria and La Herencia Cubana CORE are two of the finer cigars you'll ever have the pleasure of smoking. Absolute winners ... with the Ave Maria being a medium bodied smoke on the order of classic Cubans with a nice sweetness to it, and the La Herencia being a bit bolder and full bodied (which I favor) that really could stand side by side with the best cigars made today. To be honest, I liked the La Herencia better than the terrific Padron 1926 I last smoked. That's how good it is.
Now, the bad news ... the Cohiba was another story. Picture a tasteless Dominican budget cigar .... choke down a third, and put the rest in your golf bag. Come back next season and fire it up ... and it will still taste better than that nasty thing called the Cohiba Red Dot Robusto. Worst cigar I have ever tried to smoke. It didn't even resemble tobacco ... like the other reviewer said ... I don't know what it tasted like, but any adequate description could not be rated PG.
I'm hoping that the Padilla Miami is consistent with other Padilla Miamis I've smoked in the past which have been very good if less than remarkable.
Overall, the deal is still good given the quality of the Ave Maria and La Herencia, but the Cohiba keeps it from being a screaming deal because they are pure throw-aways.”
“Great Deal.. all around good package for the price. "the Delicious Dozen II"”
“Great deal on some real nice cigars!!! Just got the box today and was very happy to see how nice the stoggies looked. I was excited to try the cohiba and was very disappointed not a very good cigar at all!!! I hope the others have at least some flavor other then umm well not sure what flavor I was getting with the cohiba.”
“Great buy. These are great cigars and worth every single penny. Love the value.”
“I really loved this sampler! The Cohibas were amazing and so were the Padilla Miamis. I was also pleasantly surprised to find that the Ave Marias and Cores were great cigars as well. I especially liked the Core. I would definitely recommend this sampler to other and would purchase it again. In fact, I plan to very soon.”
“This (Delicious Dozen) was the first sampler I have ever purchased, and it will be hard to beat. The La Herencia CORE is an excellent cigar, one that may never be beat. The Ave Maria's are a great smoke as well. I was a little disappointed in the Cohiba's though. For being a part of a sampler labeled "Delicious", I was expecting a little bit more, they were pretty bland. Overall this is a good sampler. I would recommend to a friend, however, I won't purchase again unless they replace the Cohiba's with something more flavorful.”
“This is a great deal, but maybe there should be a word of warning about the LHC Core. This was listed under the mild to medium samplers. The LHC Core was a nice tasting cigar but it is certainly full bodied. And lots of ligero, which can leave the once-a-week smoker like me a little weak in the knees.”
“I just ordered this sampler for the second time. I think it's definitely worth the money just for the Decades and Cohibas. Can't go wrong with this.”
“This has to be the best sampler in existance for the price. The Core is DELICIOUS, one of my top 5 cigars. I burn them down until my fingers are on fire!!! The RP Decade is another one of my favorites, very satisfying. The Ave Maria is a solid cigar all the way around. You know its a good sampler when the Cohiba is the 4th best cigar of the bunch. You just can't go wrong ordering this sampler for this price!!”
“Any 3 of these smokes alone come close to covering off the shelf pricing at your local smoke shop. If you're even looking at this sampler, it is a safe bet that you know and enjoy a good cigar, so what are you waiting for?? ADD TO CART!”
“First of all, I just want to say this is my first time buying from CI and this sample pack came in today and the quality of shipping and packaging was amazing. Now these cigars are one of my favorite. This is a great deal from a great company. I will be a lifetime customer.”
“AMAZING DEAL! All the smokes are top quality... and i know the red dots aren't the best, but i like them for a casual smoke. I would buy this sampler over and over. Got the oxford humidor to put them in and it all looks amazing. I was having them shipped regularly and they arrived in 2 days which amazed me. Thanks CI for another home run.”
“Took my cigar taste buds to the next level! I was very happy with this sampler. It really showcased the differences in some fo the medium and full body wrappers. I enjoyed all of them, especially the RP and LH. I highly recommend this!”
“The Ave Maria's are one of the best cigars I've had the pleasure to smoke. Smooth and flavorful. Wish there were six of those and no Cohibas, but overall I'm very happy with the purchase”
“Not gonna lie, this is all that I buy. For the price and the selection, NO OTHER website even comes close to a great deal such as this. HIGHLY recommended for any cigar enthusiast.”
“great sampler!rp decade nice but core still needs some seasoning.cohiba and ave m. needs some humi time too but all in all I'd buy again!”
“Definitely worth it just for the Rocky Patel Decade and the La Herencia Cubana Core. 2 great cigars!”
“I have enjoyed the Ave Maria blend, as well as the Cohiba offering in this exclusive sampler. Both are solid, tasty vitolas, well worth the meager 3 clams & change asking price. But to include 2 of the most prestigious & alluring blends on the market today, Decade & Core, for the same low cost, borders on unbelievable. Who am I too complain? Rocky's dynamite contribution to this "no-brainer" extravaganza is worshiped far & wide as one of the very best. However, what puts this over the top, makes it a bargain of unequalled value & assures you will be smoking the very best, is AJ Fernandez's zenith blend, the incomparable, unequalled full bodied/full flavored masterpiece, La Herencia Cubana Core. Just laying your paws on a toro 3 pack of these beautiful works of the blending art would set you back $25.00 or more. It's like getting 9 very good cigars for less than $1.50 apiece. Try this one out & see if you don't agree. I guarantee you will flip over Core & save yourself enough to buy the "better half" a little gift for putting up with the constant clouds of smoke they endure.”
“Great deal, I loved La Herencia Cubana especially, thanks for discovering this cigar and this deal CI.”
“Great way to try some highly rated smokes. Picked this up when I was new to cigars. And it spoiled me. Can't beat the price.”
“Lets call it the Delicious Nine. As other reviewers have commented, why include the very mediocre Cohiba Red Dot? Its not my style. I use these to give to friends....”
“Great value for great Cigars!”
“I have to say one of the best samplers I have ever ordered from CI. The Ave Marias alone made this sampler worth it for me. I am smoking one as I write and words can not discribe how splendid a smoke it is. The only gripe I have about this sampler is like the many reviews before me. The Cohiba was lack luster at best. I bought this sampler solely to try the Cohiba and the Ave Maria. The Cohiba left me asking when is it going to get good the entire time. There was no depth, no spice, no nothing really. Just a meh cigar. The rest of the cigsrs however are amazing and more than make up for the Cohibas.”
“This is by far the best sampler package that I have tried. All great smokes, never a let down. The price is just insane for such high quality cigars. Great job, CI, for putting this one together..........Kudos.”
“I purchased it for the RP Decades and Cohibas, but the CORE's were fantastic. Great deal- all solid cigars.”
“Templars smell like fish. Red dots were disappointing. Rest was amazing”
