'Dominican Grab-Bag' Sampler

A peek under the radar will uncover: While some spend a fortune on advertising, some manufacturers spend their energy perfecting their craft, and over time they build up a bevy of tasty treats that require zero publicity to prove their value. These are affordable handmades crafted with aged tobaccos. 

I can't promise exactly what brands or sizes you'll receive or that you've even heard of these brands, but I can promise to deliver quality handmades from manufacturers all over the Dominican as low as 63-cents apiece. Stick your hand in the grab-bag and pull out handmades in a variety of wrappers and blends, from the Dominican Republic. 

We have seen these samplers come in with all kinds of goofy stickers and labels, just note that these tags do not represent what the sampler contains.

Don't Waste Your Time
The biggest collection of misfits & never-weres ever assembled. They just need to move this inventory by appealing to our curiosity, since there is no way they can advertise these dogs, or they probably wouldn't sell. However, even though some of them are unsmokable, some are worth smoking. Still, you will never have heard of, or see again, even the few you might like. The point is, there are so many values to be had, it is not necessary to take the leap of faith required when purchasing the grab bag sampler.

Ok
The mixture of cigars are ok, would like to see more 50/5" or 60/6" cigars. Some burn well, some are like old fireworks fuses. Light'em and their done.

Good deal!!
i brought the Dominican grab bag for dirt cheap prices. It came with an assortment of all types of Dominican made cigars. They ranged from mild to full and from cigarrilos to big ol churchills. It had some rocky Patel. I suggest you take the risk and buy it. Some were dry but hey it was 40 cigars.

Make me an offer grab bag sampler
Out of the ten I received, three were broken and could not be smoked. They were so small too start with, I probably would not have smoked them anyway. The remaining seven seem fine. Smoked a couple of them so far...not bad for the price.

good deal
you get what you pay overall most of them are ok some with not a great flavor or good wrappers but many are decent like especially if you get some of la Estrella cubana

Grab Bag Bargain
This is a great deal. Good cigars with low cost equals great smokes at a great price. The brands are obscure, but mostly decent smokes. Some aren't the best, but okay.

Grab bag is great
Affordable everyday smoking with decent cigars.

Great Buy
Note: you get 10 different cigars. So when you buy a pack of 40 you get 10 different cigars, 4 of each cigar. I hope thats clear. I was a little skeptical at first but man, these blew me away. Its a great deal. They are the kind of cigars I like to share with friends and family. I like to take them fishing because it doesn't matter much if I lose one. They are not all prefect, one had a small hole but other than that they have been really good. Definitely worth the money. I will be buying these again. Do yourself the favor and pick up a pack. They are magnificent.

it was ok. Can't really expect too much for the price. Too many "little" cigarillo types though.

I bought several bags but they were all the same. Very mild and too many small ring gauge.

Disapointing from a amazing cigar company
I will always be CI Loyal! But I was kinda disappointed on this one . A majority of these my husband which isn't a cigar enthusiast like me likes them. I personally like one out of 40. It would be more tempting if we didn't get 4 packs of the exact same assortment.

These were nothing to salivate over, but they weren't trash. They work for hand outs.

Junk giveaways
This was a bundle of 20 throwaway cigars. About what I expected for the price. Perfect for giving to people who don't really smoke cigars and can't appreciate a good cigar. I seem to have a lot of these people show up to my firepit. So I guess it serves a purpose.

Good cigars to not smoke
I bought this sampler a while back and was just about what I expected. I got a bunch of really cheap cigars. I smoked a few of these and there were a couple not to bad ones and a couple that I almost didn't want to finish. From now on I just use these to give out to friends and family that don't appreciate the finer smokes. There good and cheap enough that I don't care giving them out at will.

Poor assortment of "no name" brands
this was an assortment of what I have found to be completely lackluster cigars. Each bundle of before I received contained an assortment of cigars in various sizes. I have smoked about three of the cigars from one bundle and they were all unimpressive.The biggest problem I have is that all of the cigars are fairly small sizes ranging down to cigarillos. As far as I'm concerned, not worth the money.

Dominic and grab-bag sampler
I enjoyed the sampler because of the variety of low-cost smokes I get to try. Some are pretty decent some aren't. When I order 40 I would like to get more variety than four packages of 10 of the same. But for the money, it's well worth it.

Not enough of a variety
Quality was good but, I would have liked 40 different cigars or 2 of twenty kinds.

review of dominican grab-bag sampler
These cigars were awful. I was not expecting much but they were of such low quality I could barely smoke them. Can't recommend them and definitely won't buy them again. You get what you pay for. Still think you guys our the best of the bunch though so this one was definitely on me.

Grab Bag Sampler Serenade
I have sort of moved from purchasing boxes of one brand and have starting enjoying a mixture of samplers. The Grab Bag is a good mixture of brand names (and sone not), at a great price.

Not what I expected!
That was some of the cheapest cigars I ever smoked. Never expected CI to put that kink of deal. I guess I can say, I was expecting to find at least one cigar that I would buy again, but that isn't the case. NO more grab bags for me. Sorry

I understand it was a
I understand it was a good deal and all and you also get what you pay for. I've been dealing with you guys for 6 years now and this is the first time I've been let down. The cigars could of been a little better quality. There was loose tobacco in the cellophane wrapper. I'm looking forward to placing orders in the future just not with the cheap deal. Unless they are good cigars. I haven't been happy with a single cigar from that sampler. Thanks again
Customer Testimonials
I love just about everything I've ever ordered from CI and I am very happy I only paid $15 for this "bag of disappointment." I wouldn't take this selection of no name unheard of cigars if they were given to me. Don't waste your money. However I will always stay loyal to CI. You cant beat the deals or the selection. Thanks for makein it possible to try so many different cigars at such affordable prices.
I tried 1 and it was nasty. "Alternative to premium cigars" right on the package. I guess they make good hand out sticks to buddies who don't really smoke.
I read a couple of very negative reviews of these, just after I ordered. I must disagree with them. For a buck and a half each one cannot expect top of the line. I have had much worse for the price. One of the small cigars had a "CI" band which I never knew existed. Granted, no air could be pulled though the stick, but the tobacco was dark and tasty and I like to chew some of my cigars anyway. None of the five I have "used" so far have been unpalletable, and a few were actually quite tasty, including the ones I chewed. I thought they were worth $15.
Was a great selection and will keep trying them.
3 words for this (I loved it) each one a little different but had a great flavor an great smoke.
Definitely not terrible, but not my favorite either. Arrived in good condition and weren't dry. They were worth what I paid for them.
This is my second sampler selection and first one to try sinse the Po boy sampler is on back order. New to cigars so I guess that is why I don't understand what the fuss is about. 20 cigars for $15 was good enough for me to try some bottom shelf cigars and I was not upset. Some were rolled right and other had to be revived, but I got got two of each and at least one of them smoked just fine. Still finding my palette. Not a bad buy for a daily smoke or someone that is the same situation as me. Out of the ten different smokes, I liked over half of them in the end.
Not my favorite. I would recommend picking one up to share with friends that aren't regular cigar smokers, so that you don't waste your good ones....
As expected with any sampler, there are some duds here, some so-so cigars, and some really good smokes. My only complaint is that many of the cigars in this sampler are not carried by CI. (I like to buy samplers to try out different cigars and then buy more of the ones I really liked.)
Excellent sampler. I wasn't expecting much, but in the end I was pleasantly surprised. The biggest attention getter was the aging on these cigars, some had dates of 2010 on them and it was obvious all the cigars has 2 to 3 years aging on them. You just cant buy aging like that! Hop on these while you can, you wont regret it! Thanks CI for another great buy!
Just got my sampler earlier today. I was not expecting much from a 10 buck make me an offer grab bag. Mine came with two Churchills a robusto and varied smaller gauge road smokes. Not bad but at the same time not mind blowing either.
Did not expect much, but was pleasantly surprised, and enjoyed smoking them. A few of them were exceptionally good...very good value for the money.
A lot of people gave this deal some grief, however it seems to be a luck of the draw. In my sampler I had 4 cigars that retail at 25 to 30 dollars each and I only paid 15 bucks for the whole sampler. long story short for me, this deal played out in my favor!
It is a great sampler to keep your friends in supply but if you want finer, more quality cigars, this is not for you. Many of these are brand I have never come across, but good for an everyday cigar smoker since the majority of these are hand-made. Overall, I would give this sampler a 2/5 since I prefer some of the finest quality cigars. My reasoning for purchasing this was because, you gotta try to know. In conclusion, for the price, you really can't beat it.
If you're expecting a bag of Opus X's, you are going to be sorely disappointed. However, if you're looking for an assortment of "yard" cigars in sizes ranging from churchill to cigarillo at $ .75 each, this grab bag is the ticket. I know I've paid a lot more $ for worse cigars elsewhere.
Beyond expectations. Thus far the cigars were fresh and good. CI is now my store for cigars.
I have been picking up sampler packs to see just what ones I like the best. This sampler is very good for its minimal price. Very nice set of sticks. Will surely get some more of these in the future.
Smoked one of these so far (the Pana) and I must agree with the others who said that for the price I paid for them I can't complain. Although I won't hesitate to offer these up to friends!
This was a good mix of inexpensive Dominicans. I was happy with the quality (nothing amazing, nothing terrible), but the size of these cigars was a little on the small side. I would pick this grab bag up again for the right price.
I received four 10 packs with pretty much the same thing in each. Sizes varied, but were even distributed from small, medium and larger varieties. The first couple cigars were not to my liking, but after sitting a few days in the humidor(it was -10 F when they were delivered) they have improved. I actually really like a few of them and for the price you could hate half of them and still make out like a bandit with this deal. I would repurchase.
I have purchased this grab bag several times and have found a few good smokes in each bag. These are not your top-shelf cigars but a good knock around the yard smoke. Give them a try; they're not bad for 63 cents a stick.
This sampler is what you might expect from the description; actually I got pretty much all the cigars in the picture as well as others. A lot of repeats in various sizes. They are all combo fillers with mostly Connecticut wrappers and a few maduros. I enjoy the sampler because it's exciting to try so many different brands. Sure, most taste the same and there isn't a huge amount of flavor, but they're not all bad. Good for chores and fishing and handing out. Definitely not a sit down and enjoy the act of smoking type of cigar. They're very mild and mellow and they range from churchill to cigarillo. Bottom line: don't expect great cigars and you won't be disappointed. I would buy these again when they go on sale.
Don't think about it, just buy it. I've purchased 4 of these now and am NEVER DISAPPOINTED. Worth it every time.
Nice amount of cigars for the price, but next time I will probably go for a sampler with cigars that are already identified. 7 out of 10 cigars I received in the 40 pack bundle (actually 4 of the same 10 pack grab bags), are not available thru CI & or anywhere else online for that matter. I can't even find information on them using popular search engines. So even if I like them, they are not available thru any source I can find.
I was pleasantly surprised with this grab bag. Only a couple duds and with price I got on MMAO - a super value!
Got the 40 sampler deal! Don't be afraid of this one. Got what I expected. 40 all look nicely made; a few I knew and knew I liked. Smoked one this morning that I was unfamiliar with - started out mild, but grew to medium, a little light for me, but a well constructed good burning smoke. Some Churchill, some small, mostly decent size. Will buy again.
Not bad. Not the best sticks I've ever had, but definitely smokable and dirt cheap!
Ten different cigars at once for a guy that loves to try new things. That put a smile on my face. The selection was a little heavy in the Connecticut side, but there were a couple of really great Habanos in there as well. Overall good buy for me.
Decent sampler for the price.
Picked up a pack of these just because of the price. I must say these have been pretty decent sticks. My fiancee has smoked a couple of the sweeter flavored ones and has really enjoyed them. Kinda wish I could find some of them outside this grab bag.
I pulled the trigger and bought the GRAB BAG SPECIAL. I guess I was curious as to what I might get in the bag. I got 1 JOHN Ts. I hadn't seen 1 of those in many yrs(pipe tobacco cigar). There's been some very interesting stuff and some cigars I wasn't thrilled with, but for no more $$ than this bag of cigars cost, it's great for yard work or giving 1 to a friend and saying HERE TRY ONE OF THESE.
You can't complain about 40 cigars for 25 bucks. Some good, some not so good but like I said, you can't complain.
Don't know if I got lucky or not? But this was one awesome deal! Very very good cigars. Not one in the bunch was bad. Grab these when they're available!
You guys are the BEST! Can't find deals this good anywhere else, and I used to work at a tobacco shop....
Wasn't expecting much. "You get what you pay for and all that". They're a little rough to smoke; think I'll give a few months rest in my humidor and try again. Great give away cigars for people that are used to smokin Phillies. When they freight train it and snuff it out half way through, the urge to punch them in the face is a lot less at 75 cents per smoke than $15. Plus I had a couple top shelf cigars split and I don't mind sacrificing these for their wrapper to patch up my good ones.
Great price for an everyday smoke. I was pleasantly surprised that I got some good high priced smokes on my order. I also did get some that I didn't recognize but as I'm writing this I'm smoking one of those and it's actually pretty good! Ty CI, as always you made another satisfied customer! You guys ROCK!
Recently I invested in two 'Dominican Grab-Bag' samplers, which is curious, since I am a die-hard Nicaraguan tobacco fan. Sure, I remember the old days & just how much I enjoyed a Cohiba, Fonseca or even Victor Sinclair cigar. But in recent years & especially since AJ Fernandez took control of my tobacco taste buds, I rarely smoke a 'real' Dominican cigar. So common sense be damned, I invested about a buck a stick to try some 'off the radar' brands of Dominican spleefs. I have enjoyed 75% of the contents & tolerated the last 1/4. It was a peculiar mix of sizes, shapes & oddly named, even funny vitolas. Both grab bags were identical. Most were good, well constructed & certainly affordable. A few were abysmally rolled, shockingly sub standard in every way & laughably titled, like the Victor Sinclair offering. An unsmokable 7" X 15(maybe) lancero lovingly called "The Hippie". It wouldn't draw & when I opened one up, it literally was a leaf rolled onto itself, with nothing inside! Now, the rest smoked. One robusto, was downright good! Tasty & enjoyable. An offering from Victory Cigar was included. Not bad at all & lists for about seven bucks! While I probably won't be reordering, I see no reason why others wouldn't enjoy most of the blunts within a grab-bag. I did.
I've bought this multiple times with no regrets. Yes, there's some duds. There's also some gems. Good everyday, mow the grass or wash the car kind of smokes. It gives one a chance to try some different gauges, size and strength. I take the bands off, glue them to a notebook along with size, gauge, etc and write down my own review so if I see it on special I'll buy a box. I've spent more on a bad dinner than the price of getting 20 smokes.
oustanding!!!! As a Marine I love getting thoses cigars in my order. Wish i could just order some of those alone.
Adroit
