Caviar...... Fish stick prices
10 delicious sticks scoring 92 points and higher. Buying these will be the best decision you make today; perhaps even this month. Don't let this fish get away. Reel it in now!!!!

This is hardly ever in stock. Cigars are perfect but stop teasing us if it's gonna be back ordered all the time

Dry!
I wanted to add some variety to my new humidor. I have ordered a different bundle from CI previously which was also dry. This was the second chance- not again.

Cigars a bit dry
I recently bought a couple god of fires and they were pretty dry and hard to draw from.

Special Occasion Smoker
I order the 92 Rated Big Name Showdown to have on hand in my humidor for times when my brothers and I get together and celebration with a stogie would be enjoyed. Havent even tried one but am sure that quality of the past will show itself when we do get to them.

Ordering this 92+ sampler is always a treat
I appreciate a good cigar, and the 10 cigars in this sampler are all enjoyable smokes. While I have other brands that I smoke on a regular basis, ordering this 92+ sampler is always a treat. There are other good samplers available from CI, but this assortment is particularly to my liking - a very nice assortment.

Very Nice selection of some fine cigars
well done, and an opportunity to try some high rated cigars that you may not be as familiar with.

Great Service
I started ordering from Cigars International after some really bad experiences with Thompson Cigar.That company kept calling me and hounding me to order more. I asked them if I get one more call I will stop ordering from them. They called the next day. Cigar is now my go to for premium cigars. Keep up the good work. Thank you

Distinct, delicious, a real delight....
The title says it all, 92+ rated. This is a safe bet as far as getting your moneys worth. This sampler has a wide array of different flavors and they are all distinct and delightful. Just delicious!

I had bought some cigars and other stuff from here as a christmas present For my boyfriend.he was very happy with all of it.he loves the cigars.

Good way to try new cigars
This was a good sampler to try and sort out brands and not have to buy an entire box to do so. Most were good, some were a tad strong for me but that is the reason I bought them, to find this out.
5 out of 5
Nice selection, all cigars fresh.
Being honest, I buy samplers hoping that I'll find the needle in the haystack. I like very mild tasty cigars that I can chew on. As a result most of them are just too heavy and don't add up. The sampler pack was disappointing. None of the cigars that I smoked were of my liking, not cigar international's fault, just my taste. The Cohiba was the best, however not in the ballpark with a Cuban Cohiba that I bought on a recent trip to Mexico. Will I try another sampler looking for that perfect one? Of coarse

great price for great cigars
I liked the deal before I got the shipment but once I had all the cigars in my hand and remembered how little I paid I loved it that much more!

One out of three, Seven to go
Had them in the humi for little over week, now 3 sticks in. The HC thus far is the only bad one. Burned so uneven that it could only be heat damage. Cut it half to save it but still the same.

What a deal!
I love this package. Great cigar variety at a great price keeps me coming back for this one constantly. Thanks CI!

A grip of tasty treats
All these sticks are great. I generally buy Olivas and Rocky Patels, so those are just bonuses, but it's nice to get a taste of the rest of the sticks. These are all a treat.

Not So Much A Showdown, More Like a Family
These cigars are truly worth the extraordinary price. A wide range of flavor and heaviness keep you excited to try the next. None of them have disappointed, but the Rocky and the Sancho Panza stand out as my favorites. Perfect for a starter, or for anyone trying to stock their humidor with a few solid sticks at a great rate.

Good gift for a friend.
Gave these to my best friend for his birthday. My only regret is that I didn't buy a pack for myself since my humidor is full. If you are looking for something to gift to cigar smoker this is a pretty good deal.

fantastic value
The 92 Rated Big Name Showdown is what I take with me on fishing trips. 10 of the best at a fantastic price. I usually get two for the trip. I wish you offered a package that 20 different sticks rated 92. It would be my new favorite.

OK, but not great.
None of these are great. They are acceptable and worth the price but not 92+ in my book. I would not buy this sampler again.

Really great sampler!
Honestly, as soon as I this as smoked a few I wanted to buy it again. Tasty selection of brands I had not tried yet, especially the introduction to the Torano Exodus 1959 which I will be buying by the box next. Guys, keep this sampler online and in the catalog!

Big taste for small bucks
I have always enjoyed the offerings of the Samplers, and this was a true delight. Several of these smokes paired nicely with afternoon relaxation, as well as after dinner beverages. And all of them paired nicely with fire.

This sampler is one of my faves. It's got no fillers. Every stick is top shelf, from the Oliva to the Black Pearl to the Cohiba and all the rest. My hardest decision is which to enjoy next. Great smokes at an even greater value!

The pack I received recently seemed to be a bit dry. I had to let most of them sit in my humidor for a couple of weeks before I smoked the rest.

Great Cigars at a GREAT Price!
I literally RAN to my PC when I saw this offer. Sadly, it was on back order. I checked back the next day and it was "In Stock," so I placed my order. As always, it arrived quickly and well-packed. This is probably the best offer that CI has ever made, one which you shouldn't refuse! ;-) So far, every cigar I've smoked is a winner. I'll be re-ordering this as soon as I've gone through my current stock. Thank you, CI, for your amazing offers and especially for this one!

Good Sampler, Great Price !
I enjoy samplers because it gives the buyer a chance to figure out if a brand name cigar is worth buying more. This sampler gives you that opportunity. Well worth the cost.

Response from Michael Diaz
Received the cigars in a timely manner and thank you for that, however the cigars were a little dry, so if possible perhaps a small packet in the back to keep the cigars fresh would be nice. Thank you

Very good buy on these 92+ rated.....well worth it.
I bought 3 of these deals and liked it very much. The only one that disappointed me was the RP Decade as it was not a clean burn nor had much flavor. I really enjoyed the Black Pearl.

I've had enough now to know good from bad so this hit the mark perfectly to me to try rated cigars with a friend and not pay an arm and a leg.

Good times
Great selection of cigars, lately I've been into sample packs and this is my favorite one. Tried a couple of brands I've never had, traded one or two and say with a beer on my deck with the rest. If you are getting into cigars or getting a present for someone, this is the pack.

Just finished my last smoke. I love ordering samplers to try different cigars, this sampler is my favorite by far. I couldn't tell you which one was my favorite all good cigars, but the COA, Rockey Patal and La Aroma Da Cuba were awesome.

Not Disappointed!
This was my first order and it was a gift for a friend. My brother in law referred me to you. Very prompt service and product was as advertised! Quality was top notch and received high praise from the cigar enthusiast! Thank you. Will order again when needed.

Customer Testimonials
This was my first and definitely not my last sampler. I loved every single stick and will probably end up buying the same sampler again at some point. The cigars arrived surprisingly fast and were all in perfect condition. The sticks seemed just slightly over humidified, to counter the shipping and handling time, but only a week or two in the humidifier brought them back down to where I like them.
Great deal to try a bunch of different cigars. Some were stronger than I liked but all burned well and were good quality.
Great deal; a lot of my favorites. And the price, right on.
Not a bad deal. Wish the cigars were bigger.
Great Sampler for the price! Very pleased with all the ones I've smoked so far. The Sancho Panza "Glorioso" is very smooth mild tasting cigar, along with the Oliva Serie, CAO "Cameroon Robusto", Rocky Patel all of them just fantastic. Try this sampler!!
I've only had about half of them by now, but damn. Great selection. Everything has tasted pretty damn good.
One of the best samplers out there. Wide range of types, quality and price range. Great starter sampler.
Nothing not to like about this 92 rated collection. I especially liked the Torano, Oliva, 1844 and the Decade. A steal for the price!
My first buy from CI and what a buy. This was a fantastic introduction to many great cigars for me and I will be placing another order very shortly.
Very good value, and excellent quality. I've gotten this bundle 3 times now. Don't be afraid to try it!
Amazing, quality cigars at or below half price. CI was even ingenious enough to include 2 over-rates. The RP and AB are perfect for newbies, or as a great joke to play on an unsuspecting pro. Offering an aficionado a 90+, then handing over a Rocky Patel Decade? Priceless, just hysterically priceless. Thanks Again CI. To be perfectly honest I have smoked and enjoyed both. But they are certainly out of their league here.
One of the best samplers I've bought. Halfway through em and enjoyed each stick!
I haven't smoked them all yet. I sat them in the humidor for a week and then started sampling some. Every one was a very nice smoke. I started at the bottom with the 92's and am working my way up. I hope they just keep getting better and better. Thanks CI for your fantastic samplers.
Best sampler I've had; all the cigars were good and the price is unbeatable!
Probably the best sampler you can buy to get a wide variety of top brands. It exposed my pallet to a great range of flavors and helped me start to narrow down my favorite brands. While there were a few in there that I loved, all of them were good and worth trying.
Terrific sampler. I enjoyed every single stick. My favorite was without a doubt the Torano Exodus '50 Years'. Wow. Just Wow.
A great sampler for people who want to try a larger variety of more high-end cigars (such as special occasion smokers like me). Some I didn't care for, and some have become my favorites. The CAO L'Anniversaire was the highlight for me, followed closely by the Torano. I'm always a fan of Oliva, as well. Great for people who don't want samplers with 5 of each cigar. I give most of the cigars 4/5 stars, with a couple of 4.5s and a couple of 2s.
This is a good sampler...great price.
Without this sampler I may have never knowingly got my hands on a Rocky Patel decade. Hands down the best cigar of the bunch here and second best cigar I have ever enjoyed in my life. Now I need a box of the decade's.
You better believe I'm peeling the skirt off of this naughty girl! She sat me down in my chair and said, "the show's just gettin' started, big boy!" My oh myyyy...
Great sampler for a great price is you like good cigars and want to try some get it maybe not all of thematic least to me are great but worth trying so far I smoked only about a half of the sampler but I'm impressed Torano Exodus was great, Olivia was nice so was CAO Cameroon, RP Decade, Cohiba and so on. For the price you cannot go wrong and it gives you a nice option to try new or revisit old friends.
Good value here. These are excellent sticks and easily worth the money. Theres a few in here I'm gonna get a 5 of. But all are worth smoking.
just puffed away the last one. The Sancho Panza was great, all of them were great. I have one cigar every Sunday, suits me fine great cigars wont go wrong with this bunch!
Excellent choice!
I love this sampler. Good variety, great cigars. I'm on my third 92+ sampler.
Very pleased with this sampler. Should have ordered more than one.
Flat out great cigars. I feel like I'm beating a dead horse...but the La Perla took me by surprise today. Very nice cigar. The RP decade is my friend's all-time favorite cigar. I do wish one thing...I'd love it it CI got rid of the family blend and threw in a Prensado or a Tempus. Just much better AB offerings. The Family Blend doesn't seem like a 94 to me. I WILL order this again.....and again.
Great sampler for anyone. No issues on any of the cigars, quality, or shipping.
Freakin' nice bunch of sticks! Next time will order in pairs to share the same cigar with a buddy.
Haven't finished the entire sampler yet. So far all have been very good cigars in my humble opinion, except the RP Decade. I have yet to have an RP cigar that doesn't canoe like crazy. The CAO was amazing. The burn was laser straight and my doc says my fingers should be fully healed from the burns in a couple more weeks!
Love this sampler. This is WHY you buy samplers! This was all about trying out new sticks and revisiting old friends. I have not had a CAO Camoon in ages. God I've missed this cigar. The La Aroma is just flat out a great stick as well as the Oliva...can't go wrong. The two biggest surprises out of this sampler was the Sancho Panza and the La Perla...um...wow. The La Perla was without question the most exciting cigar I've had in a while. What a beauty. Amazing construction, smooth draw and amazing flavors. This is why you buy samplers. Hooked for life. LOVE the the La Perla...absolutely amazing.
great selection
I received these cigars over a month ago and have smoked about half..would like to have smoked more but after all it is winter in NJ and I can't smoke in the house...I have not had a bad stick in the bunch yet..really enjoyed each so far and the price can not be beat... would highly recommend this group...!
I enjoyed them all, but check to make sure you actually receive what is shown. My RP Decade was replaced with a different RP. Still a tasty smoke, but it was not what was promised.
Loved the consistancy of all but my Bradley family blend. It was convoluted in flavor and had major construction issues. When I peeled off the label, off came some wrapper with it. Being that this was a FIRST for bradley and CI I am still a fan and for the price I grin and bared the inconsistancy.
Some real nice sticks 92 + for sure, definitely worth the sampling, shouldn't be disappointed, nothing bad at all !!!
A great sampler that I am reordering. Each cigar a treat and one better than the next, unusual for sample packs.
Very nice sampler
Great smokes at a great price. Sit back and enjoy!
What a treat! I love these samplers in general, they usually give a very nice "smoke for the buck". - Unfortunately there are usually one - or two "weakling" or "stinkers" in most samplers: ... NOT IN THIS ONE!! They are all great, and I mean GREAT cigars!! I'd recommend this package to everyone! Thanks CI., What a nice treat!
The best $35 you can spend on cigars.
One of my first orders and was not at all disappointed. If you are new to cigars and are looking for a really good mild-medium blend cigar(s), this is a great place to start. This offer is definitely one of the better deals on the website. Great job to the folks at CI!
Pretty pleased with everything in this except the Bradley Family Blend..... flavors were muted and very inconsistent. I like Bradley and that could have been a fluke, so I will try again, but for the money, this is the best sampler there is!
Very very happy with this order. Filled up my little humidor, but awesome none the less, very happy first buy.
My first order as a CI customer, very happy with it, Impeccable quality. Shipped quickly.
Haven't smoked all of them yet, but my favorite thus far is the La Perla Habana Belicoso. It has a very smooth draw along with creamy dense smoke. I would recommend this to those who have seasoned palates. Many will enjoy the very fine flavors that make up the body of these cigars.
I must say, this is worth it for the price. Every cigar has smoked very well and consistent. My favorite so far is the Black Pearl cigar. Loose draw and very dense and creamy smoke.
All the cigars were good.
one of my first order will be ordering on a regular basis. Very damn good, love them
Adroit
