CI 'Brown Bag' Sampler

For 20 bucks, go ahead and throw a Brown Bag Sampler on your order!

We sample a lot of cigars around here (that’s called Research & Development you see) and as a result we end up with tons of open boxes in odd quantities. In fact, on a recent stroll through the humidor I was struck at the number of such boxes. They’re in perfect condition but I can’t sell them as is with opened packaging. So let’s do a little experiment: we’ll pack up a ton of these loose cigars – all solid premium blends – into a bunch of CI Brown Bag Samplers, each chock full o’ ten different handmade, long-filler brands. Selection always varies, but you can expect some really nice cigars in there, including a variety of blends and brand names with no junky reject crapola. It’s like a box of chocolates!

Great Value, But....
It's a great value for the money, however I'd ordered one perhaps 6 weeks earlier as well and received the EXACT same 10 cigars. My only complaint (wish?) is that you mix it up, every single time. I will give this another try or two, just to see if the 'suggestion box' gets opened on your end.

Mixed bag
Mostly cheap sticks but a few have been decent smokes. I wouldnt order again but for anyone just looking to get a sampling of everyday smokes it's not a bad buy.

Great way to expand your horizons :)
I love the brown bag samplers. You never know what you'll get, but you can bet there will be several great cigars. My first Graycliff Platinum came in a sampler a while back. Just received a RP Conneticut, a Torano, etc. Definitely worth it.

Can't beat it for the price, but don't expect much
Can't beat it for the price, but don't expect much. Bought these for a bachelor party as grab cigars, but everyone brought their own. Bought two grab bags which are identical.

Really Great
Getting this on 7/12/2016 was like a lost Christmas Present found in July! I received 5 mild/medium and 5 medium/full. All Top Drawer!! There were a few of them that I've been wanting to try! I will have to wait as they Must sit in the Humi for at least 6 months! Thanks to you at CI for more awesome Cigars!

Brown Bag Sampler
I liked all but one. I can't recall the name' but it was dark in color and smoked real strong. It also had a stem in it the size of a match stick.

All good smokes. A nice assortment, of long smoking, mild, tasty, quality stogies. A sampler that wins, leaving you wanting more.

Brown "plastic "Bag Sampler
Not a P.O.S. in the bunch, best way to try something new no matter what strength you like. You may find you really like something you thought was too strong or w.eak but we're afraid to try. Keep up the good work. I'll be back.

Great cigars, Great price!
I took a chance not knowing the brands. There were a few new ones I hadn't tried yet and a lot of the names I'm familiar with. Liked them so I ordered them again. Thanks!

Hidden Gems
Always find a couple cigars that I have overlooked or haven't tried yet. You have made me aware of some nice sticks that I now order.

Bad ghurka
Everything was great that I smoked so far except the ghurka....it must have been stale because the wrapper started peeling of immediately
5 out of 5
MUST HAVE FOR NEW SMOKERS
Very good line up of cigars. The only problem (the reason for only 4 stars) is for the lack of range of cigars. Most are mild-medium, with only one being a true full stick, another two being a solid medium-full, and the rest are just mild, maybe mild-medium. Great starting sampler for the novice smoker though, as it allows you to find your niche of cigars that you prefer. Must have for novice cigar smokers.

Great Price! But not worth the risk for me.
Took the risk, and wasn't happy at all. I'm all about trying new brands, but I only recognized 1 out of 10. Also I do not care for Connecticut cigars, and about 7/8 of mine were exactly that. 1 of the cigars had a bad wrapper and flaked upon opening as well as peeled to expose the binder due to the glue from the band. Probably will not order this sampler again.

not to bad.
I was surprised with this Brown Bag. There are some nice everyday sticks.

Not a mystery at all.
I ordered this sampler in hopes of getting a random bunch of cigars, I got all of the cigars that were pictured, its an okay deal price wise, but just a little disappointed in the lack of mystery. The Cigars seem fresh, so I guess there's that.

Everyday cigars
Not one high rated cigar in the batch and a couple of small ring gauge(less than 50) some good everyday cigars but no special occasion smokes. In the past my Dad would buy the brown bag for himself and me and their were always a couple of notable surprises.

BARGIN .. BARGIN .. BARGIN
I thoroughly enjoy adding 1-2 of these every order, sometimes my entire order is JUST this. I appreciate sampling a new stick every day as I stroll outta the gym and cruise home in my old pick up (can't smoke in the nice ride). Anyway, the value in each bag far exceeds what CI offers on the daily prices, and usually even better than any sale they run. I like variety, I like having multiple choices, and this is a huge value!!

The sampler I purchased was a mixture of awesome and a unicorn, which is amazing!! Thank you so much for the great value! Will definitely order again!!!

Great sampler!
Got my Father's Day order yesterday and it had this sampler inside. Right off the bat I saw some great smokes in there. Rocky Patel, Habana, Arganese, Gurkha, Vegas Gold, you name it. This is my deal because I like to try everything that's out there, much like my beers. I will be ordering another of these in a few days...just so I don't run out.

Suspense!!!
Remember when your a kid and you're staring at that pile of wrapped gifts on the kitchen table? Waiting to open the brown bag sampler gives me the same feeling. Did I get another pair of socks? Or did the video game I've been eagerly waiting for?

Never had any of problems, very helpful if I had any questions. Cigars have always been fresh and good. The brown bag sampler was very good. Thank you.

Good
There are some good cigars in the bunch I got. I like the variety and this is a good purchase for wanting to sample different cigars, mainly your everyday type of cigar. I did get a Gurkha Seduction in the bag and that was not a good smoke, but for the price, this is a great way to find out if you like something or not.

Slightly disappointed
I bought two brown bag samplers a couple weeks ago. I was very disappointed in the fact that the two brown bag samplers were identical. I was hoping for two different ones. I was happy to see that i got a Gurkha in each one of the samplers.

I recently bought a brown bag sampler/grab bag. The sticks arived in great shape and were of various brands and vitolas. The only disappointment I had was that the cigars shown in the picture of the brown bag sampler in the catalog were exactly the same cigars that I got. I think 2 out of the 10 were not in the picture. Not a big deal, but I thought some more random and unique sticks would have found there way into the bag. Still Love ya CI!

Great sampler
These are ideal for me, not only am I new to cigars (only just over a month in) but also I like variety. With this sampler I had no idea what to expect and was most pleased. I must say, the ones I received were quite well taken care of, good quality long fillers, I did not receive anything of poor quality or condition. I did figure out that some lighter color wrappers ate stronger than you think, pretty much had to stay seated for a while. I've only enjoyed dealing with this company and plan on continued business.

Good quality cigars most of them, but they were supper dry I don't know why and some with evident construction damaged. As an positive note you can try new brands.

Used to be a great sampler
Usually a great buy, but the last couple of times I had 3 or 4 short filler cigars. (And I hate having tobacco pieces in my mouth). I had a couple of nice smokes that I'd like to try again, but there was no band, so I don't know what they were. And unfortunately several sticks were so dry that the wrapper was coming off/cracking. Hopefully this is a temporary issue and things get back to normal. If the quality that used to be in this sampler returns - it's a great value. If not, it turns out to be just so-so once you take into account the sticks that end up tossed out/unsmoked.

nice selection to fill humidor
Bought this for my husband to add some cigars to his humidor. Was a great package for the price and he can try some cigars he has not had yet. There were some really good cigars in there and some average. Great deal overall.

Nice surprises
I've ordered this twice, and will continue to do so. No cigarillos, no unmarked sticks, no flavored ones either. There are a few I've never heard of, but that's the point of the sampler! Both had a Gurkha and a Fuente.

9 out of 10 were good
Received my brown bag special in the mail but when I began unpacking it, I noticed one cigar was split all the way down. Disappointed because it was a mild cigar and the first one I was planning on enjoying. Maybe next time I'll have better luck.

Surprised, in a good way!
Even though the selection was a surprise, it was an excellent variety. There were several higher dollar cigars that I would not normally have paid full price for. Each was a new experience for a moderate price. I was pleasantly surprised as to the value that I received for what I paid.

Excellent Value for good smokes
I like everything from Connecticut's to Double Maduros, so Cigar Samplers are my choice. The Brown Bag and Backyard Boogie are my faves! The value is well beyond what you pay.

What a pleasant treat(s)!!!
I usually purchase some cigars for my vacations. I was more than surprised and pleased with the quality, freshness and flavor of each cigar in the sampler, I was on a cruise and enjoyed the evening on the deck bar with a brandy and great cigar. Thank you for providing such an affordable selection.

Good but not great
I'm not sure if I'll try a brown bag sampler again. While it is a good selection of cigars, they are all very dry and need to sit in my humidor for awhile before I think about trying one. Also one I am unsure of if it has mold or plume. Most say plume, a couple say mold. I have since moved it to an empty tupperdor to sit. I have wiped off the white specks and will see if it comes back. I love variety but may stick with cigars straight from a box and not loose.

Just received all 10 and will update each as I try them. They all look fine but the one has white spots which could be plume or mold. I'll know eventually. Stuck them in my tupperdor and will wait and see.

For the price, it's not much of a gamble. There's a high ratio of quality to unsmokeability in the bundle. I would say that 85 percent of the cigars included were actually pretty good! Knock yourself out.

Brown Bag Sampler Review
I was quite pleased with the quality of the Brown Bag Sampler. Only one cigar gave me trouble...the Ghurka, but I've never had good experiences with them anyway. It self destructed while smoking it. All the other cigars in the package were great.

I'm not an aficionado so I probably couldn't recognize the difference between a high end and a bargain cigar. But I got a great deal on these and each was enjoyable. I'd recommend to an novice or infrequent smoker.

From a Beginner's Standpoint
I'm on a year deployment and I got into cigars as a means to celebrate the passing months as well as occupy my time. My old commander told me about the brown bag sampler and it really is a great way for beginners to explore and learn about cigar culture. The spontaneity of the variety makes it even better. I've been keeping a cigar journal and have begun to make a record of each one I've smoked. I will definitely continue to order the brown bag sampler until I've established my own personal preferences.

Pleasant Surprise
I am always pleasantly surprised with the contents of the Brown Bag Sampler - honestly, there was only one cigar of the bunch that I would not purchase individually given the opportunity.
5 out of 5
going to order again.
on the first batch price range of the cigars would be slightly higher if bought separate. I have not finished all the cigars yet but out of the batch there where 3 so far that i really liked.. and only 1 that i only smoked 1/4 of it and tossed. i am going to place a order for another set.

Great, but stop putting in Gurka cigars!
I give it 5 stars because I can't chose 4 1/2 stars. All the cigars look great and its fun opening them and seeing some new brands, but the Gurka that came with it was awful. I'd say this would be a perfect cheap sampler if they didn't but Gurka cigars in it.

Goes great with beer!
Okay, so I'm not a rich guy or even close to being almost well-off but I do like really good cigars. Sadly, I can't always afford really good cigars. I can, however, afford the brown bag special which (as advertised) didn't contain top of the line cigars. It did contain some pretty good sticks that went real well with the beer and barbecue I had in the backyard. Every brand was hand made and everyone thought they were getting a "special" cigar. Yeah, they don't normally smoke cigars so they were a real treat along with the free beer.

good for first timers
Great smelling cigars. but most of them felt like i was just smoking air. There was a couple that was a good smoke and one actually started off bad then bout a third way through it was amazing. Wasn't the greatest grab bag but hey theyre made to be hit and miss

Nice Bundle of Smokes
I've ordered this three times now. In those 30 cigars there were around 14 different sticks. Not a lot of variety but you do get some decent smokes, 5 vegas, Gurkha, Rocky Patel.... Great for beginners and to have on hand for sharing with friends.

Like Grocery Store Brand Soda. Ok, but not the real thing.
Nice bundle of give-away smokes to people who don't really smoke but want to try one. They won't really notice the difference and you don't need to waste a $10 stick on someone who won't appreciate it. Worth keeping in the humidor.

Excellent Selection and Prompt Service
Needed a Christmas gift with no ideas in mind. Help from a friend brought me to CI where a Build Your Own Sampler was purchased for a 'new to the art of cigars' person. Excellent variety of packages to chooses from. Threw in the Brown Bag Sampler for the one that recommended CI. Even delivered in 2 days!! WOW!

Excellent value!
I have bought many of these Brown Bag Samplers for my husband over the past few years. He loves getting these as it is a great way for him to discover new favorites. I don't know a thing about cigars but, according to my husband, the value of what is in this sampler far exceeds the cost. I will be buying another one come Valentines Day.

All Nice Smokes
On my last order I took advantage of a Joes daily deal, got the free shipping on my order and figured I would get some other sticks while I was at it. I was looking for a sampler and ran into the brown bag special. I am EXTREMELY glad I did. I smoked 6 out of the 10 so far and enjoyed EVERY one. All burned nicely and were good tasting. I have been buying cigars from CI for about 4 years now and tried a lot of the sampler values, the deuce, etc... For me this was a great way to get more variety out of my smokes. I'm going to tack the brown bag to every purchase.

Less than impressed
2nd or 3Rd time I've ordered this but first time I've received sub par stogies. A couple had the wrappers with tears in them or didn't burn evenly. So overall 2 stars.
5 out of 5
Definately worth the money!
Out of 10 cigars 8 were fine smokes and the other 2 passable. For 2 bucks a stick you can't go wrong. Very satisfied and surprised at the quality and selection. Will order again for sure..

Nice Cigars, but they do need to change up the selection once in a while. Bought sampler 5 weeks ago and it is still the same cigars as my original purchase. I like different products to try, that's why its called a sampler!

Strange collection
very strange collection. Problem is even if you find one that is enjoyable the chances of getting more are nill. If you are a fan of the Kentucy Derby try them as several of mine were from 2006 derby.

Selection was ok
I am always a little excited to find out what cigars came in the 'Brown Bag' sample. This time I found mostly cigars that I have never heard of so I tried to look them up and found information on some of them. I put them into my humidor and a couple weeks later I started smoking them. A couple of them were ok but the rest of them left a bad taste in my mouth. I will continue to purchase 'Brown Bags' because I like to see what other cigars are out there.

Another Excellent Sampler
Had a golf outing so decided to grab one of these as not all of my foursome are huge cigar smokers. There had to be at least $70 worth of cigars! The one avid smoker was surprised by how good his cigar was and the others may soon get into the habit! Will definitely purchase again!

Great Gift! Fast Shipping
Ordered this and it immediately said that it was on back order, which was a bummer as I was looking to get it fairly soon. Never got an update, but the cigars showed up with-in 4-5 business days of my order, so I was happily surprised. I would have given 5 stars if I had been updated that the order had been processed and shipped. Made a great gift for my father-in-law. He had nothing but good things to say. So I would definitely purchase again.

Should be called Bag O' Gold sampler
Name should be changed to Bag O' Gold sampler. Ive made it a habit to order 2 samplers with my monthly order. Each time the cigars are always top notch, not some bargain basement garbage you get at a keg party. Just 2 cigars in this sampler typically pay for the price so why not try it and see what its made of. Not like you are losing any money on it. Not sure if I can list the brands I receive, but they are big name high rated well celebrated sticks. Doo IITT you wont be disappointed, and if you are (snob) you can just send the rest to me.

Brown bagging it
Really enjoyed all of the cigars that came in the sampler. Didn't quite know what to expect but was pleasantly surprised. Only have one complaint and that is, one of the cigars....Rocky Patel Connecticut, had a huge slice along the side of it. Working in an industry where I have to use a blade to cut, I do know that this happens from time to time. Just something to be on the lookout when packaging. All in all, I would totally order it again. I've continuously been happy with everything I've ordered from CI.

I ordered the brown bag twice now to try different cigars ,being a new smoker they were all good,except for the gurhka it was really dried out and cracked and both times the foot of it looked like someone had cut about a inch of the wrapper leaf off.but all in all the other cigars are really good will order again

CI 'Brown Bag' Sampler Brown Bag Sampler
While the sampler was a great value and I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of most of the cigars, some of the sticks were too strong for my liking. So I didn't realize the full value of the offer because I didn't smoke the sticks that were too strong. I believe that an offer like that should contain similar style sticks so that I can enjoy a pleasant cigar at a reasonable price and not feel like CI was trying to clear the warehouse of some dogs they can't sell.

I can honestly say that this was a good buy. Now im here in san diego enjoying these great sticks that CI was generous enough to include in my grab bag. Will definitely buy again .

Great selection, Sad that the two i bought were exactly the same
I ordered two of these samplers hoping to get two different sets of 10 cigars. When i received them they were two sampler with the exact same cigars in them. That being said, the cigars in this sampler were great. All top notch and tasty. I would have given this five stars if i would have gotten two different sets of 10.

Great for a novice such as myself. I wish it was a little easier to figure out exactly what you get, but the quality of the cigars makes up for that. I will order this sampler again, no question.

All I can say is wow! Every cigar in the bunch was an enjoyable experience!

I will be adding these babies to my humidor for my casual morning smokes. Thumbs up CI.

The cigars in the brown bag special were surprinsingly awesome. All were of nice size with a few really big ones (which my fella loves) thrown in. All were smooth & there was a nice range of mild to robusto. Will order again.

Some Cigars could not even be smoked. First disappointment ever in all the times I have ordered something from Cigars Int'l. Probably will not order the sampler again, but will stick to my tried and tested samplers

Duffer Delights
Whether you play at the country club or a public course, this is a great assortment of cigars that are perfect for your golf outing. If cigars were golf clubs, you would have a full set! These beauties range in size from drivers to putters with everything in between. There is a lovely sampling of Central American classics with wrappers as varied as golf socks and ring sizes that range from tight lipped duffers to big mouth braggarts. You can choose an 18 hole beauty or a shorty for your par 3 nine hole course. Oh yeah, there are terrific choices for the 19th hole that pair beautifully with a cold brew or an oaky merlot. FORE!!!

ALWAYS a worthwhile purchase
I've purchased this sampler many times; often I'll get a great deal on a mazo or box of twenty cigars and - even though there may be 80- 100 cigars in the humidor it may only be 4 or 5 different smokes Ordering one (or two) of these will increase interest/ options and overall enjoyment of your daily smokes I've NEVER gotten a bad cigar- and there has been a few great ones too bad you can't get 10 different whiskies scotch or tequila in a like manner
5 out of 5
Great Deal!
Only one dud in the grab bag, not to shabby. A couple sticks were worth the price of the sampler alone. I will be picking another one up these up with a future order for sure.

Customer Testimonials
Sure, not every cigar is a top-tier cigar, but for the price, even the bad sticks aren't bad, and I've yet to get a truly bad deal; usually, every grab bag includes at least three or four that I'd have paid the $20 for alone. It's a must-have every time I order from CI.
Very happy with the 'Brown Bag' Sampler. Some very good cigars. I would say 1 out of the bunch I probably wouldn't buy the rest I wanted to try.
The Brown Bag Sampler is really a good deal. Generally it's a mix of high quality cigars plus some lesser known brands. For the price you can't beat it.
I just got mine in the mail today. My favorite brand is Gurkha, and that is almost all I smoke, but I'm glad to have bought this! Time to expand my palate!
Well worth the money. A few nice surprises in the bag.
This sampler is so good I do not consider the sticks contained therein to be giveaways or everyday smokes. Some of the names in there blew me away. 5 Vegas and Gurkha just to name a couple. This kind of quality for two dollars a stick? CI, you continue to amaze me with the value you give us loyal customers. We can enjoy decent sticks on a shoestring budget. Thanks CI!!!
New to cigars, interesting flavors. When more are available I will get more. Next cigar is a Gurkha Overrun. I have no complaints, only praise for what CI offers. Thank you for the card you sent in the mail.
WOW. Who knew I would like all these brands?! Glad I gambled. Never would have bought most of them... Except for the massive 7" Gurkha that was included.
AS advertised, a mixed bag but with the Nica Libre and the Indian Tabac; I was pretty happy. Will do this again.
For a new cigar smoker, or someone who just wants more variety without paying retail, this is one sweet offer. Never know what you'll get, but it is an interesting ride smoking them and helped me pin down what I like or don't really care for.
Here's what I got. . . 5 Vegas Classic - medium robusto 5x50 $2.80, Clasico - mild-medium corona 6x43 $0.87, J. Fuego Corojo Oscuro - Full torpedo 6x52 $2.50, Gran Habano Azteca Fuerte - med-full torpedo 6x52 $2.50, Arganese Maduro - medium torpedo 6.7x52 $2.25, Puros Indios Reserva Maxima 2003 - medium toro 6x52 $2.25, Nica Libre - medium toro 6x54 $3.25, Indian Tabac Classic - medium torpedo 6x52 $2.00, Gurkha Vintage Shaggy - medium XO(gordo) 6x60 $8.82, Torano Dominican Selection - mild-med torpedo 6x52 $4.50, So in total I received $31.74 worth of cigars. I can't wait to try a few of these tasty looking morsels. Remember, "selection always varies".
Great sampler! It had a little of everything; was a good first time purchase for a new CI member.
I bought this sampler by mistake, thought it was a different sampler. Well, I must say, even though I goofed up, I wasn't disappointed. Nice variety of smokes. I actually would get this again.
The Brown Bag Sampler had a very nice selection of cigars and I found myself really enjoying every single one. So much so, that I'm buying another bag of them for a golf outing. The guys are going to love them! Nice Job CI!
Terrific value. I got a Gurkha and 5 Vegas that alone made it a worthwhile buy. It was like Christmas morning, opening it up and seeing what I got!
I'm fairly new in the cigar game and bought this on the recommendation of my father to try out some different styles. I enjoyed all of the cigars that came in the sampler, but was turned on to a few different brands that I was unfamiliar with. I enjoyed researching and learning more about them and the sampler was more than worth the price.
Always a good selection; no crap. Keeps my selection varied & interesting.
For the price it's good. There was some good quality ones in there as well as some borderline ones.
Not bad, but will not order again. I am a sampler guy, like to smoke something different every time. However I am picky on ring size and got a couple smaller than 50. I will not reorder only because of that. Still good for the price. But I have found that I like to know what I am getting.
Some really nice cigars in the bag. Very good deal for the money.
Great selection. Many top premiums in here. Well worth the 20 buck asking price. All types. Full strength, mild-medium the whole shebang. Get in on this one while the getting is good. And it's real good.
This sampler is absolutely NUTS! I love that I get cigars I would never think of buying, smoke one, and then order a box. It was through one of these samplers that I found my favorite variety: Box-pressed Maduros. These samplers keep my humidors full of excellent choices. I always buy two.
This has a good selection of cigars. I have found two that I like so far. I still have more to try. The Brown Bag Sampler is a great way to sample some of the many cigars on the market today for a great price. I'm not new to cigar smoking, just expanding my options.
As a newbie in the cigar world, I've been trying out a few samplers here and there. When I received this pack and looked up the sticks, I was pleasantly surprised by what I got. The smokes, so far, are pretty good....Sadly, three of the cigars had cracked wrappers, but still sort of smokeable. All in all, it's a good deal.
If you're wanting to try different brands, but don't want to fork $10-18 a stick over to your local cigar crib, this is the product for you! I've recieved a 5 Vegas Classic (a true classic) and a Partagas, A. Fuente or two... Truly a good deal to get out of your regular "go-to" premiums.
This was a great deal! I ordered two for my husband and over half of them were 90+ rated cigars. We got two enormous Gurkhas, Rocky Patel, 5 Vegas, etc. Every cigar(except one)we got would have been between $5-$20 separately in our local store. It's a great deal, made loyal customers out of us. PS. This was the first time ordering from CI.
This is a great deal if you ask me. There were some very nice sticks in the bag I got. Gurkha, 5 Vegas, Nica Libre. I like keeping some oddball stuff on hand to gift or try myself. One caveat, I ordered 2 Brown Bags and they were identical. Not a problem, just something to keep in mind if you are wanting to try a larger selection. Thanks CI!
Definitely worth the $ there was no junk at all in there.
I just started smoking cigars & don't really know a lot about them, but I just smoked the GURKHA & I really like it...I will be ordering more in the future!!! :)
I usually buy one of these samplers each year around Christmas. This year, 2014, the sampler contained the following: Indian Tabac Classic, 5 Vegas Classic, Graycliff Platinum, Nica Libre 1990, Clasico, Felipe Dominicana, Arganese, CU Avana, Calle Ocho, and a Park Avenue 44. I'll smoke the Nica Libre and the Graycliff to see what the fuss is all about, and save the rest for holiday visitors that might not appreciate the Ashtons, Padrons, and Davidoffs that I prefer.
This Brown Bag was my first purchase from CI. I was hesitant about ordering off of the internet, as the prices on this site are much lower than I usually pay at my local cigar shop. That being said, I was very happy with my purchase! There were a couple duds, as can be expected for the price, but overall it was well worth the money. The Gurkha Park Avenue, Indian Tabac, and Nica Libre were especially tasty sticks! I bought one of these brown bags for my buddy to add to his Christmas goodie bag. I'm tempted to snag out the good ones and leave him a Clasico in return, but I guess that wouldn't be in good keeping with the holiday spirit. Thanks for the kick a$$ deals CI!
Great smokes, love these great cigars. I hope CI keeps selling this great sampler.
Worth the 20 bucks and some. I was not disappointed when my Brown Bag sampler arrived. So far I am halfway through it, and I have only had one cigar I did not care for. There were some great brands in the mix, which I'm saving for then end, as well as some lesser known brands. Even with these not so big brands, the smoke itself has been great. They are all quality hand made cigars, worth every penny. I will get one of these with every order if possible.
Excellent value for the price! I've bought it twice while in the process of trying to find the cigars I do and do not prefer.
If you have the 2014 holiday catalog, the sampler I received is just like the picture shown on page 94 (except for one). Half of the cigars are sub $2, four are between $2.25-$4.40, and the only gem of the bunch, which happens to be the only one not pictured is a Graycliff Platinum Torpedo. All in all, you get about $35 worth of cigars for $20. Would I purchase again? For a chance to get another Graycliff Platinum, ABSOLUTELY!
Great deal and mix of smokes. Some were not my cup of tea but there were others that knock it out of the park. Try it yourself, at the price it is hard to say no.
Got this because, why not, its 20 bucks. Not a bad take for the price. I actually found a couple of reasonably priced sticks that have made their way into my rotation. If you need to spend 20 to get the freebee, or just wanna take a stab, you could blow 20 bucks in a lot worse ways.
I have just received my second Brown Bag sampler in as many weeks. I will admit fully that I was fully enraged when I received my first sampler. 7 or 8 of the cigars I had never heard of, 1 or 2 I had heard and one more I figured was "Decent"... but I never saw any real good brands let alone "gems" that many people wrote about. I was really upset. Then I started to think about it, each cigar should price out to about $2, because $2 x 10 cigars = $20 ... so any cigar priced over $2 is an extra value. The truth is, while there were no Fuente Fuente Opus X's, Montecristos, or even CAO Nicaraguan or Hondurans, but there were a few cigars over $5 a piece which is in fact a good deal. And having smoked through most of the first sampler, I will admit, there were some gems. Very impressive smokes for the money that I'd never have found otherwise. HOWEVER, I ordered a second Brown Bag sampler which I received yesterday, 9 of the 10 were *exactly the same* and I mean exactly, and the 10th was a different smoke from the same company as the contemporary in the first sampler. Take that how you will. It's not going to rock your world, but if you smoke in any volume and you're not rich, this is nothing if not a good deal. Just don't expect a pack of Romeo y Julieta, Macanudo, Montecristo, Partagas, Avo, CAO, Fuente etc.
I've tried 3 or 4 of the cigars in the brown bag and they are all decent to great so far. That Felipe Dom. is VERY under-rated!!! Thanks CI!
Just received my Brown Bag Sampler today. This is my second one so far that I've ordered. I got exactly the same sticks as the last order with the exception of one, The GrayCliff Platinum!! This cigar alone makes the bag worth it. Others in the bag where 5 Vagas Classic, Park Avenue 44, Calle Ocho just to name a few. I will definitely order this again.
Not a bad deal! I got a few top shelf cigars including Graycliff, CAO, and some by Drew Estate. Most of them I have never heard of before but I can't wait to try them out. Just got them yesterday and they're patiently hydrating in the humi. I can't wait for these puppies to be ready so I can torch um up and see what they're about!
Great price and some decent cigars. Great choice if you need some handout cigars in your humidor.
I just started smoking cigars a few weeks ago and up until now I've been given one here and there by friends with each one of them telling me what their favorite is. As I have started doing research on the hobby I'm overwhelmed by the variety. I decided to start with this sampler and I just received it today. I just finished going through the bundle and looking up each cigar. I have to tell you, this bundle is looking real good and I can't wait to try each one. I was planning on sharing some of these, but not now. I can't wait to get started so my typing is done so I can go light up!
Great cigars at a good prices.
I found some really great cigars in this sampler. I suggest buying one if you are new to cigars or are the type of person who wants to discover some great values. None of the cigars were pricey, so the selling point here is not savings but rather a good variety of affordable smokes. They do change regularly, so I plan to buy another in a while when I feel the need to try some new brands.
Great sampler for cigar newbies. Some highly rated cigars included in the "Brown Bag". I probably liked about 75% of the cigars but it was definitely worth the price to try some cigars I might have never ordered on there own.
$21 in value. Came as pictured in August catalog with 1 exception. Had hopes high for a BIG surprise but I'll wait to curse till after I burn threw'em. Ok for yard work & handouts but for $2 a stick we know a box of Padrons aren't coming. I'll probably sucker myself into this again lol!
Good deal for the money with good cigars, I've ordered a few of these samplers and each have had the same contents would like to see some variety.
I ordered this a few weeks ago and was impressed with the selection, which included a 5 Vegas, Gurkha Park Avenue and Nica Libre. I will definitely purchase this again!
Quite a selection for the price! I smoked the two that I thought most likely to be duds and was pleasantly surprised, while not top shelf even the filler cigars are acceptable smokes. I will be adding one of these to all future orders.
Some ok. But I found true love with the Gurkha Park Ave. Great buy!
Ordered 2 bags of these on a Monday. Arrived Thursday (fastest shipping by far of any online smoke outlet). $20 for 10 cigars = $2 / stick. It's a mixed bag for sure. Some of those retail for $15 each. Others are of dubious quality. All got smoked. Enjoyed 'em all! Thanks CI!!!!
50/50 A good sampler for the money, at 2 bucks apiece you get some duds and you get a some good ones.
As a relatively new cigar smoker, I love to try different cigars. I bought a Brown Bag Sampler with my recent order and I'm glad I did. I ended up with some real gems - cigars I probably never would have tried otherwise but are now on my 'favorites' list.
I have tasted a few of CI's products and I can't wait to receive my brown bag.
I have tasted a few cigars but it appears that I have enough reason to join the cigar fanatics. My plan is to taste all and every cigar there is on CI.
Of the 10 sticks I received, I was thoroughly impressed. A nice variety of smokes with varying strengths too; I'll definitely be buying more!
A great deal! If you're a beginner this is one way to go. however CI is a the best place to shop. Doesn't matter, a pro, or a novice, enjoy your experience.
Great sampler. I only received 2 I didn't like, and the rest were well above my expectations for the price. Can't beat this deal as a way to stock your humidor with some variety. And it's a great way to find new cigars without committing to buying a box or getting ripped off at the local cigar shop. Thanks CI!
I calculated the total cost of my 10 cigars at CI box/bundle prices. I got $21.56 worth of cigars. So, I saved some money. What makes it a good deal is that I don't have to buy 20-40 of each of these cigars to try each one. I don't smoke much and this is a great way to get try a variety of cigars. I am ordering another.
Just got my order in today. Couldn't wait to try one out. I received a La Aurora in the bag. Gave it a whirl and was happy with it. Can't wait to try the others I got. Even got a Gurkha G2. I'll definitely be getting another order of these when I make another order.
Great sampler! I got a ton of good quality cigars that I had been wanting to try and some others that I really enjoyed but never would have thought to buy! Awesome deal that could lead to your new favorite cigar!
Gotta say I was pleasantly surprised, you figure for $20 it would be crapola, but not from the great boys and girls at CI! I'm buying another.
A great selection of smokes for 20 bucks..naturally a dud or two,but the overall value just can't be beat. A good way to try some new brands without breaking the bank..
I got my sampler the other day and was pleasantly surprised! There were a few cheapies, but nothing unsmokable, and a few gems (Gurkha Park Avenue and 5 Vegas Classic) as well as a few I'd wanted to try but didn't want to buy a box. Thanks CI!
This is my new favorite thing to buy on CI. Lots of goodies in this sampler and I almost felt like I was robbing CI when I opened it. Well worth the money, I will be buying this with every future order.
Got some pretty good cigars in this one. Among my favorites were a La Aurora, Gurkha Park Ave. and 5 Vegas classic. Between those three I was pretty happy, plus there was 7 more! My only complaint was that two of the cigars I received had obvious construction issues. Luckily they were not my 5 Vegas.
Ordered this a while back but forgot to review it. For 20 bucks can't go wrong. Only threw 2 out that I didn't care for the other's were good to great but not super premium. Will definitely order again. Thanks CI
My first order from CI, and it did not disappoint. All but one were fantastic smokes. The only problem stick was a Cu Avana that had way too tight a draw and constant canoeing problems. But hey, 9/10 great smokes for this price can't be beat.
First brown bag sampler so far i have enjoyed the smokes and brand's that i ended up with in the sampler. Even tho UPS shipped it all over the the place before i got them at my home they were still fresh and very good cigars. I would put a brown bag on my next order good deal good smokes.....
well i will tell you what i got and you can judge park ave. 44, dominico torano, arganese, cu-avana, indian tabac classic, calle ocho, nica libre 1990, g2, la aurora e. leon, and a 5 vegas
....Seems like it was worth the $20 bucks, as I received several cigars that I've been thinking about investing in a 5'er of to give a try...so that was a saving right there !! 5 Vegas, Rocky Patel, Gurkha just to name a few...some very nice stix indeed!!
got them today great lookin bunch of smokes cant wait to try a few
I took a chance and got a selection of nice cigars. Some I've never heard of and are not cigars that I never would have tried , one lower priced stick "Calle Ocho" actually surprised the heck out of me, a nice flavor and draw. Just goes to show you price doesn't always matter. A good way to try something new.
CI must be crazy! I got the infused first. Mind blown. Then this "Brown bag"... I don't understand why people don't get these every time, aside from heavy cigar smokers. I priced the first four I took out of the bag, and realized they alone were over the price of the whole bag! Being somewhat novice as a cigar smoker, I am still feeling out the specifics of what I like, but I have yet to find a single cigar I haven't enjoyed from this, and other purchases. A genuinely awesome grab bag of all shapes, sizes, strengths and makers. Really made me decide to keep on with sampling via CI's sampler and grab bags. I won't even go to my local cigar stores now.
I received my Brown Bag Sampler in 2 days. I'm always impressed about the quick shipping from CI. I am however, a little upset that when I ordered 2 Brown Bag Samplers I received the same cigars in each bag. Other than that I'm very happy. Some premium cigars and some so-so cigars. I might buy again, I might not. But if I do it will be one at a time.
Worth it. Stop thinking about it and do it!
Nice variety of sticks. I will buy agan.
Look at the picture. That is pretty much what you get. The brown bag sampler is worth ordering once... maybe twice but the selection rarely changes. I've ordered three times over the last 6 months and 8 out of the 10 cigars have been the same each time. Hardly the random selection they imply...... Still though, you get 7 cheap cigars, 2 "mid range" and 1 premium smoke. So it's worth the money, just don't expect new items each time you order.
My dad is a usually a pipe smoker, but I sent him this as an early Christmas present. He absolutely loved. He thought I must have paid too much for it. I didn't correct him. Some good cigars, great for the price. Going to order myself one soon. Thank you CI for the great affordable gift!
Great value, had some really nice smokes!
Very happy with my order. Got way more value than the price tag. Some stogies that I have tried and loved, some new ones, NO disappointments! I will be ordering this again, and again, and again!
Not quite what I had hoped for but I guess you get what you pay for: Almost all are "run of the mill" two dollar cigars.
just received the "Brown Bag" sampler yesterday. All the sticks were in fine shape. I took some to a gathering of some friends today and everyone was more than pleased with what they smoked. We are all relatively new to cigars and this was a great way to start exploring the territory. One of the women said "I think I have found a new hobby!" as she made her way through a G2! Thanks, CI.
So yeah, I received a Gurkha Beauty in my sampler which sells for almost $30 alone! Good smokes at a great price!
They were OK for the price. I'd buy them again if money was tight and I had to cut back.
HELLO! This is my first time buying. Very fast service. Excellent sampler. Every one a great smoke. Would recommend and buy again. A great deal!
Expecting much more after reading the positive reviews. After ordering the Brown Bag sampler I got loaded up with flavored CAO cigars. With a brown bag I expected a mix of different cigars, instead had 3 identical flavored CAO cigars plus 3 additional flavored cigars. If I wanted flavored cigars I would have ordered that, but when ordering a mixed bag I expected more. Don't plan on ever buying this "sampler" again.
