Great options and great value. Filled my humidor with some good cigars. Love the Cohiba Red Dots and the Bahia Connecticut.

So far so good
Came with 80 and i used a promo for another 5, with that i bought this to hand out cigars for Christmas. With that said I have smoked 7 of them. All 7 have been great for the price.

Perfect Bundle!
What makes this great, is friends can pick and choose the one they would like to try. This will be the 5th order on this bundle since signing up with CI (3 months or so ago). In my opinion it has been well worth every cent spent. The exceptional variety makes this a perfect gift and a keeper. As long as this remains within the CI inventory, it will continue to be the "go to" bundle. Perfect bundle to place in a care package to soldiers abroad.

The Bender Ender 80 Cigar Sampler
I ordered this particular sampler as a gift for my son and his Marine buddies. He was looking for a suggestion from me for a decent yet affordable every day smoker he could share. I thought the sampler was a great idea especially since it included the Cohiba cigars. My only dissapointment was the delayed shipping because the order was back ordered. I assumed because of high demand but the wait was worth it to introduce CI to my son and his Marine buddies.

Bender Ended 80. Sampler
Liked quantity for price but have found that majority seem to be seconds and loosely wrapped. Smoking quality is nothing like I'm used to getting from your products. But it did fill two of my humidors and there were a few good ones so far
2 out of 5
Cheap but not particularly cheerful.
Avoid. I'll keep the Cohibas but I'm tossing the rest. I don't consider myself to be an aficionado yet, but frankly I've not enjoyed a single one in this mix yet, discarding them before I'm even an inch in. Maybe I'm spoiled on the Olivas I usually smoke, but these are just rough and generally unpleasant.

SAMPLER… Bender Ender
great selection for every day smokes
5 out of 5
Mity good smokin'. Very little wampum.
There isn't a better deal to found. And you get five Cohiba Red Dots too. There really isn't an outright bummer in the bunch. If you smoke a lot of cigars as I do, then this is the deal for you. And those Red Dots, my oh my.

Good smokes for the price
These don't distinguish themselves for taste or burn, but for the price they are ok.

Smoking the competition, one cigar at a time!!
HOLY SMOKES!!! I captain a 48' Sportfish out of Destin, Fl. Nothing makes the guys happier than seeing a full humidor on the boat with calm waters ahead.

Great daily smokers that will save you big $$$$$.
Nice variety of daily smokers that are well made and will give long lasting pleasure. The price is right too.

I thought the Bender Ender was a terrific buy! The cigars were varied, smooth, well wrapped, and consistent. If i had A/C in my man cave, they would be finished by now, but the humidity in Maine has been horrible. At least we don't have the flooding in the South.

Always a Surprise
Great selection of sticks. Allows exposure to new or unknown brands. Have made several very nice discoveries using the Sampler.
3 out of 5
Good starter
The cigars are good for an occasional smoke. The Cohibas are highly overrated in my opinion, some of the other unknown brands tasted and smelled a lot better.
3 out of 5
Well, the Cohibas are good...
I've tried most of the varieties at this point and other than the Cohibas they are very loose rolls, some to the point of being difficult to keep lit. They are good quality tobacco, just not the kind of construction I like. The Cohibas are very good though.

80-Cigar Sampler
So far, so good. Have gone through the first dozen or so and they all have been satisfactory. Some have been wrapped a bit too loosely, but that is the only critique I have. Definitely worth the price for my everyday cigars!

BENDER ENDER
Good selection however I was not impressed with the "COHIBAS" I prefer mild -medium smokes thus I got a few surprises. -Maybe a mild/medium package next time . . .

Great Bang for the Buck!
I appreciate the variety included in the sampler as it gives me an opportunity to sample a bunch of cigars I havent tried yet. I am only 3 brands in but havent had an unsatisfying smoke yet.

Quantity vs Quality
A lot of cigars for the money. There are about 20-30 well wrapped good smoking cigars. But there a lot of soft cigars comparable to the Switzer Brand.

Nothing great but they are perfect for your mooching friends or when drinking and hanging in the pool you don't mind accidentally dropping one of these because you didn't lose much. Lol...

Cigars are dry and fall apart with fillers. They are really bad. Yes, great price but needed to be. Horrible

Social Security special!!!!!
Being on Social Security it's hard to find a good cigar at a fair price. These are great cigars at an excellent price. Plus, the service is outstanding. Much better than some of the other cigar dealers. These folks rock

The Bender Ender 80-Cigar Sampler
I sampled each one prior to inviting others to have a smoke. They were all a good flavor and smoked very well.

Disappointed!
I am very disappointed with this sampler. When I saw this sampler deal I thought that it was too good to pass up. I was wrong! Most of the cigars are of very poor construction and quality. They do not burn well and appear to be "under filled" meaning they are very soft and malleable. While smoking one of the cigars I had what appeared to be shredded bits of tobacco come out of the end of the cigar. The tobacco appeared to be the type of filler used in low grade machine rolled cigars. I have been a customer of CI for nearly 20 years. I have always been happy with the service and quality of the cigars I have bought from CI. In fact, I look forward to the cigars I receive monthly as a member of cigar of the month club. However, I wish I would have spent the money on a quality box of cigars instead.

Awesome!!
So many great cigars to choose from!! All have been in perfect condition. Cigar international did an amazing job sending these to me in the mail to Japan in only a couple days. I applaud cigar international and all the cigars they sent me. Such an awesome bye will do it again soon. If you're looking for a really good amount of cigars for a good price this is great, if there's something you don't like in the collection you can always give it to a good friend.

DRAWbacks
Overall it was a good deal. The Cohiba's made it pretty much worth the buy. It was a mixed bag of quality. I enjoyed a few like the 1876 Key West and the Cargo's. Quite a few had draw issues, about a third of them. Would I buy again. Maybe. Good to have on hand to hand out and keep the good stuff for yourself.

I used it as a chance to try several new brands without a huge price tag, and wasn't disappointed. It's a great idea for the beginner or anybody who wants something different

Money to burn
If you want a lot of cigars to fill up your humidor, this is a pretty good bargain. If you want a lot of good cigars, this isn't it. I have found myself smoking more frequently because I am not satisfied, and to simply get rid of them without throwing my money in the garbage. There are a few decent sticks, but that's as high as I would rate them, decent. Most, lack flavor, are rolled so loosely that they refuse to burn even or stay lit, or just simply leave a bad taste in your mouth. If you are hosting a big party and want cheap giveaways, this is your deal. If you want good cigars, choose something else.

Pretty good sampler for the money
This is a decent sampler, and for the money it's hard to beat. The only downside is that these are not the best cigars. There's a couple good sets in there but there are also some pretty bad ones as well (no flavor). The biggest problem I had is that there were not many dark/full varieties. Most of the cigars were on the mild side. Of course this can be seen by simply researching what is in the sampler. All in all, middle of the road cigars with a few duds in the mix. Great way to fill the humidor. Probably will not purchase again but am not sorry I did.

There are few good sticks in this sampler but the majority are low end loose rolls.

You pay for what you get
These are not the worst smokes you will ever fire up but they are less than mediocre. If you don't mind spitting out ground up leaf then this is probably just the ticket. I'll have to blame myself as if it looks too good to be true it probably is. I'm going to get through these but won't purchase again

DO NOT BUY
These cigars are not of good quality at all. I will be throwing them away as none of them burn right, none of them have good taste at all, and none of them are worth sitting in my humidor. My advice is stay away from this box of poo. spend your money on something you know is going to be something you would actually smoke. 4 thumbs down.(I'm using my big toes for this one.)
2 out of 5
Not good
Took a chance after ordering other bundles, greatly disappointed with this one. Cigars fall apart after clipping, they are not tight and burn irregularly. Will not buy again

Many of the cigars wrapper were soft and often pieces of tobacco would escape from the smoking end into my mouth. I would not purchase another. I am highly disappointed.

Golf course heaven
The cigar world's greatest value! As a dyed-in-the-wool golf smoker, I need a decent, inexpensive cigar for the course. Viola! Here they are. Not a "clunker" in the bunch. About half I would rate as "premium" smokes, the other half are definitely passable. LOVE 'EM!!

Good smokes for a great price. Some are well known, many are not, but great smokes all around. I would recommend if someone was looking to pick up a lot of cigars for a very good price. They're all Churchills, so they're all a good length smoke. Enjoy.

All-in-all a great deal. Some cigars have minor issues like being rolled too tight or holes in wrappers. One was so tight it actually exploded which was kinda neat. Most smoke pretty well so far though.

Great Beginings with the Bender Ender 80 Sampler
I received my sampler shipment and have been pleasantly pleased with the variety of cigars. After a few days in the humidor the cigars were ready for me to lite them up. This was a great selection of medium bodied smokes, with a number of different tastes that felt great to the palate. My wife also enjoyed several as well whom wasn't a big cigar smoker but is appreciating it more now thanks to the incredible selection.

Rediculously low price per cigar
Great priced sampler. Since I normally only smoke one Churchill daily, I appear to be set for the better part of the next three months. Planning to rotate through each brand daily.

A great selection!
This was back ordered for a while but finally arrived. This is a fine and vast selection of great cigars. Some discussion where I work was that these might have been overruns with any/old label applied. Well, even if they were, these smokes are well made and surprisingly good. I have tasted a few so far and are mild to medium in rating.

This is a great sampler that you can pass on to your friends. WOW 80 cigars great deal.

Still Higher Hopes
some of the cigars leave you wishing for better. Some OK, like the Cuban Delights and the La Pearla and the RP's. Of course the Cohiba's are nice. Perhaps made it worth while. Great price though given the QTY of smokes. It was an Christmas gift so I can't complain that much.

Great Bargain
A collection of good everyday smokes at bargain price. Most are light to med. but with a good range of spicy, rich and flavorful smoke. A few wrappers are delicate, but all draw well. Would buy again. Wish there was a maduro sampler. . . .

Fantastic 80 Cigar Sampler 10 Stars
What an incredible assortment of delightful cigars. I encourage any cigar smoker to try this 80 cigar sampler. I honestly haven't tried one yet that didn't suit my fancy. Outstanding value. All cigars are fresh, individually wrapped, and labeled. Which enables you to try different types without investing in larger packs or boxes. You can't beat this deal anywhere. Thanks CI for this outstanding combo. Well done.

Good For Splitting
I split this pack with four other friends (16 cigars a piece), and i highly recommend doing something along those lines. Only a handful of the brands are worth investing in a bundle (namely the RP Cargo, Don Rafael, Bahia Connecticut Deluxe, and RP Fumas), but it's still nice to be able to enjoy a wide range of budget brands for not too much. My biggest issue is with the construction of around 30% of the sticks. Some of the wrappers are pitiful and some of the draws are more open than smoking a PVC pipe. However, a fun time if you split it up among friends.

CI Bender Ender Sampler cigars
I smoke lots of cigars, so I can't afford the expensive "name brands". This selection is a good compromise for good cigars that are affordable. I have been smoking cigars for over 50yrs and have seen the price of cigars go from cents to dollars and have bought from many suppliers. CI ranks as one of the top suppliers and I recommend them for good prices and good customer service.
5 out of 5
Best value!
For a selection of every day cigars it can't be beat. With the addition of the cohibas and a few of the others, you just can't get a better deal.

80 cigars at this price is a good deal
I smoke a cigar every night and was looking for a good smoke at a cheap price. This sampler is good for smokers on a budget. The cohibas were what made me buy it and it was worth the purchase. Most are cheap cigars but if u are a newbie to cigars this is a great way to just sit back a relax and enjoy many cigars without breaking the back. Also great way to fill your wineador\humidor with cigars tohand out for guests. If you looking for great tasting cigars this is not the one.but is good bang for your buck

Great bang for you buck
This the second time I have got this bundle. It gets better each time I get it if you want to try a variety of different cigars for the money it is worth it . You also should invest In a cigar saver which is invaluable because sometimes you can get a hand rolled cigar that wrapped to tight the saver will help instead of throwing it away makes it so that you can smoke it . I love this sampler by far 99%of the cigars are fine but have got one or two that was wrapped to tight. But recommend this sampler to everyone.

Great variety and prices
I purchased my first cigars from CI and was and still pleased with the variety to choose from. I just purchased my first humidor and can't wait to preserve my cigars in a proper climate for these cigars. As my cigar taste matures I'm realizing CI has great prices and options to purchase the diverse yet popular brands out there on the market today. The 80 sampler pack is a great way to introduce yourself to different cigars. Enjoy!

Get what you pay for
Some of these cigars had been wet or something. Even the wrapper looked funny. The first one I attempted to smoke was very loose and I first thought I'd just send the bunch back but after sorting through them I found that many were good quality so figured I wasn't out anything. Probably going to stick to the brand samplers from now on though.

good and bad
The medium to high end cigars were fine but the large bundle of low end ones ....well I had to throw out at least 15 being plugged or tunneling problems. If it was on sale I would possibly buy it again .

My sampler pack of 90 cigars arrived super fresh and it was a great deal!!! They were on back order for a few weeks but at that price I'm guessing CI was overloaded with orders. Always a great experience!

Every day smoke
Don't buy this item if you are planning on showing off to your cigar aficionado friends. The cigars are not reconizeable brands BUT These are excellent every day smokes some inconsistency in the burn (some draw hard some draw easy) If you are looking for a great way to fill your humidor and have decent smokes to light up without feeling that you are lighting up your wallet this is definitely the purchase you need to make!

The great smoke fest
The benderender is a very good buy for those who enjoy mild and medium mild cigars. The fact is that the Cohibas are best part of the package. They make the most of this deal and being an everyday smoker this is a good deal

Best Cigar Purchase Ever!
I enjoyed the majority of these cigars much more than I expected. I would rate the sampler from Good to Very Good. It was the best value cigar for a fair price. I may repeat this order, if available, when I finish my initial order. Bill

Good Daily Smokers
The variety is good, the quality of these handmades are terrific and the price can't be beat! I have never found a sampler of Churchills from any company that can come close to the value of this grouping. To top it off, included in every order is a five pack of Domincan Cohibas! This is my go-to sampler! If you like Churchills with overtones of spice, leather, and deep dark cocoa, this is the 80 cigar lot that should not go unnoticed!

Worth every buck I paid for it
This was my very first mega sampler and I'm glad I went for it. 16 brands to try and discover what I like and what to avoid. There are some just smokable sticks and some surprisingly good ones. As I'm a weekend smoker, I gave my cigars some time in humi and definitely it helped a lot. Second run was way better: more taste and smoke, better draw. Cohiba Red Dot is a cherry on this tasty pack. Worth every buck I paid for it.

Bender Ender 80 Cont Sampler
This was the first time I bought cigars in bulk. I was very happy with the customer service I received and more than happy with the quality of the cigars. There were a couple included that I didn't care for, but considering I didn't know much about cigars at the time, I was overall pleased with what was included and it helped me figure out what I liked. For the price, this was an excellent first time bulk choice.
Customer Testimonials
Awesome price and great flavor for all the cigars! fresh, nice rolled, not cracking. I would highly recommend getting this if you have a lot of friends who want to try a cigar, and may actually enjoy it!
For the massive number cigars you get in this sampler, one really can't complain too much about the quality. That said, this is definitely one of those samplers you buy to get your fix during the week or to share with friends with less discerning tastes....I really can't in good conscience recommend this sampler to anyone other than the aforementioned bloke looking for something to puff on after a long day.
Just tried the Duque. Enjoyed the smoke and flavor. Easy draw and no relights.
This is an excellent array of tasty sticks! They burned evenly, the variety was very good, and it was a great value for the money. I will be ordering this sampler again.
Good way to stock the humidor without spending a fortune. All decent smokes but not so good that I feel bad if I have to toss one away.
I ordered the Bender Ender and was pleasantly surprised. Overall the entire selection was very enjoyable. Decent everyday smokes that suit me just fine. I will definitely reorder this one.
Half way through my bender and I think I found my go to cyclical buy to keep me stocked with daily smokes. The Cohibas were a treat but the dark sharks were even tastier. The bender will never end for me as long as the CI guys keep them coming.
Very enjoyable sampler for the price, will definitely order it again next summer when I find myself smoking more often.
What a deal. 10 out of 10. No more needs to be said.
Great prices for really good cigars!
GREAT Sampler, I've purchased it twice and will again when available! Please don't order until after I have ordered!
Good deal for the price but watch out, some of the sticks burn very inconsistant and the wrapper falls off half way through on some... The Cu'Avana & Cuban Delights are uneventful, but overall the sampler has good smokes and a good price.
Some selections better than others but all very smoke-able. For the price, a terrific introduction to many brands one might not try otherwise. I'm going back for seconds!
I want to commend and thank you for the 80 Churchill sampler. It is utterly amazing. I have ordered & am ordering 9 out of the 13 in it. I have searched for 2+ years for the perfect work cigars! and I have only found 3. NOW You have given me 9. Utterly amazing. I sit in front of 6 screens in my cloud company, and the ONLY thing that keeps me working are mild Churchills, all except 1 which I buy from YOU! I typically smoke 6-10 in a 14 hour workday, so they need to be mild, low maintenance staying lit, a little tasty is a bonus, and economical. I never dreamed you would enable me to quadruple the number of what I call "Work Sticks"! My Work Sticks have to be non-challenging so I can focus on the screens & work. I smoke higher end cigars when I am NOT working, and can focus on the cigar. Everyone says you can't find great cigars under $2 or $1. CI, you have proved them absolutely wrong. Please keep up the good work in supplying these types of cigars.
This is a great Deal I order it all the time great price and great cigers
not worth the money. uneven burn, unwraps all along length.
Great bundle of cigars unfortunately a lot were too tight to smoke but I'm still very impressed with my order
By far, the absolute worst sampler I've tried from CI....(most very loosely rolled) throughout the batch. A few decent, but even the Cohibas that were included were third rate. Never again.
....But when I finally got them I really did enjoy them the quality was good and I got what I was sold.
What a terrific deal! Great selection. Tons of cigars. Great to fill the humidor and have something for everyone when the guys come over for the game. 80 cigars for a hundred bucks. You have to have them for give aways, and for yourself! There were even several premium cigars in this selection. Just a great deal. A really great deal!
Great sampler helped me find some good cheap smokes I never would of discovered
Nice sampler package each have a nice areoma and taste
I am a Churchill nut, and I first ordered this Sampler just to see what it was like. I loved it and have now ordered 10 consecutive times; they have different blends, bands but they are all Churchills! I have only had 1 cigar that I can say I did not like but that may have been the way I preserved that particular cigar. Try them; you will ove them!
great deal; the cigars are fantastic
This is only the second time I have ever given a review on ANYTHING, but these cigars are so damn good! I had to let my fellow cigar lovers know that these sticks are not only good for every day use, but when I have guests over who know their cigars, I take off the label, hand them out, and they are always impressed. I freaking LOVE this Churchill deal!
If you're just getting into smoking cigars, this pack isn't so bad. I've found 3 or 4 brands out of this pack to be worth smoking. Personally, I would suggest going for a higher end sampler for the same price.
Thank you for a great deal.
These are really good cigars. For the price, I wasn't expecting too much, but I have to say these are fantastic! Great flavors, good draws, they burn nice and even...they make great everyday smokes! I highly recommend!
Basically 15 $1 cigars and 5 $12 Cohibas. Being a smoker of the cheaper brands I always like the samplers where I can try an expensive smoke and see how the richer folks live.
Had a need for every day smokes and found this deal. I've been spoiled by Arturo Fuente and Carrillo but they've been putting a hurting on my bank account each month. Bought this sampler as a way to branch out and try some of the other brands while not killing my wallet and a way to fill my extra humidor. Excited to branch out as I've tried a few CI sampler packs in the past and have only ever had 1 cigar that I would never purchase again.
Had mine for over a few months now.When I want to try something "New",I grab one.At the price,it is much better than I expected. Took them all out of their wrapper,and letting them "age". I have gotten a LOT MORE than I expected,and more than I paid for. "Papigordo" Santo Domingo,Dom.Rep.
