“just a great way to spend the afternoon, with a sample of Black Ops, very nice mild flavor, A +”
“Very smooth and a surprisingly good smoke flavor also good. Best paired with a little cold bourbon.
“Bought the sampler and was happy with every cigar. Originally bought it because of the cool band to hand out to military buddies, but there is a solid smoke under each of those bands. Skull on the label and solid smoke anyone can enjoy. What guy can say no.”
“I really like these; I'm biased though as I've become a huge Ghurka fan over the years. Also, I love maduro's so guess which one of these are my favorite. All, however, burn and draw very well and lasted for over an hour. Mine also ashed so well after about 1/2 thru I almost had to beat it on the side of the house to break it off (sign of a well constructed cigar so I'm told) Also I actually had the different noted flavors come thru which is definitely different for my wrecked palate (years of military c-rats & mre's). As of this post you can get some very nice smokes for about any mood you're in for about $2.34 a stick. Pull the trigger and get'um while you can at this price and get a bad ass band to boot!”
“Not bad construction but would it kill you to label each blend?! Package arrived with all cigars mixed together and no indication of which was which. After they went into my humidor it was very difficult to differentiate between a maduro and a habano. Flavor was nothing to write home about either. Kinda flat. I mostly got leather and earthiness. Construction was good though and they burned evenly. I think I'll give these to my brother and let him be impressed by the bad a** band.”
“Great everyday stogies...will totally be a regular reorder.”
“I've smoked several of these Black Op's guys now and must admit I'm surprised at their rich/full taste. The Conn. -- Habano wrapper units seem to be "fuller" than the Maduro. But all told, these Black Ops cigars (all three types) are downright tasty! And a 6 X 50 cigar is my favorite winter time size too!”
“1/26/15 I bought this sampler back at Christmas time based on the C.I. video reviews of both the Connecticut and the Maduro, assuming the Maduro would be my favorite. Wow!!! Not generally amazed by the Connecticut, (I knew I had to try it for the price, at least!) this one blew my mind! Smoother and maybe even tastier than Man'O War's Virtue. The Maduro is fair, but didn't exactly blow my skirt up. That said, the Habano is what really stole the show for me. It's a great cigar at a price that could easily make this an everyday smoke. This sampler may be the best deal at C.I. right now. Just do it!”
“Just had to try these, being a Gurkha fan and all.... and couldn't lose with the price. I will say that I've only tried one so far and was a nice smooth smoke. And is nothing like their Gurkha counterparts, but in a good way. Can't wait to try all 3 blends. Love having so many blends on hand from my favorite brand. C.I. makes it possible.”
