A J Fernandez sampler
This is one terrific sampler, full of excellent cigars. I’m a big fan of AJ; I smoke a lot of his brands. MOW Ruination has always been one of his best. The Armada is one of the best cigars I’ve ever smoked. Both the Diesel Wicked and Rage are excellent. The Reconquista is a powerhouse while the Divina is a medium bodied dream. The only thing that stopped me from rating this at 5 stars was the La Herencia CORE. For some reason it just didn’t appeal to me. Not that it’s bad,lt jusr didn’t do it for me. That being said, I’d definitely buy it again.

Best cigar purchase ever
Was skeptical about buying this because the price point was so cheap compared to buying any these by themselves. All of these cigars are pricey and this sampler gives you 35 sticks for around 100 bucks and you can’t buy a box of any of these for that. Finally pulled the trigger and all I can say is wow! Best cigar purchase ever. Haven’t been disappointed by any of them. Smoke quality, draw, consistency all have lived up to each brands description. Diesel wicked my favorite out of them all but each one has been a pleasure to smoke. Will buy this sampler again and again. Pull the trigger, you won’t be disappointed if you like bold strong smokes

First CI order-40 year smoker

A real treat. A great selection of some of the best AJ Fernandez has to offer. You will find your new favorite here.
The Ave Maria Reconquista is one of my most favorite smokes, and i regularly pay upwards to 20.00 per stick. So when I saw this selection, and saw 5 of my favorites that are worth nearly the price of these 35 cigars, i was all in! What a huge gift to myself. I don't think AJ Fernandez knows how to make a bad smoke. My favorite Reconquistas are perfect. The Ave Maria Divinia is a terrific smoke. The ManO'War are great and i had one of the Wickeds last night. A wonderful selection of some of the very best from AJ Fernandez. Well worth it!!

A.J. Fernandez Chosen One sampler
The best sampler on the market to date. A unique blend of various cigars for smoking with different liquors. One of my favorites. A J Fernandez hits the mark especially with including Ave Maria cigars in this sampler. A single maduro broad leaf connoisseurs number one pick!

35 of AJ’s best. This is my favorite humidor stuffer, and with the discounted price, you can’t go wrong.

Perfect Mix
While this may not be all of my favorite sticks, this combination is the perfect balance of cost and quality. I've purchased this combo multiple times and expect I'll continue to do so every time my humidor starts to run low.

These cigars were not the usual quality I expect from A J FernandeZ products. Especially the diesels were hard and difficult to draw. Same w the Cores. The larger Ava s were harsh to the taste. I’ve ordered this package before. But I won’t again. I was disappointed

Best Sampler EVER!!!
Hands down the best sampler available at CI! I've purchased this sampler a number of times and all of the sticks are high quality every single time; great wrap, draw, burn, etc...not a bad one in the bunch! My personal favorite in this set is the full-strength Man O' War Armada - great long burn and packs a nice full flavor punch!!!

A.J. Mega Sampler
A great deal at a great price. The selection in this bundle is phenomenal. A great choice. Definitely a bundle I would order again.
5 out of 5
Excellent value on A.J's!!!!
I've not made it through each stick yet, but A.J. has become one of my favorites as of late. The Man 'O War Armada is my favorite stick of all time so far and having 5 of them in this pack covers the cost. The rest is just gravy and a tasty gravy at that!! The only problem I had with this terrific sampler was finding enough room to store them. Find it on sale, buy it, thank me later!!!

Choosing the Chosen One AJ sampler
I have really been enjoying this excellent selection of AJ cigars. I'm a fan of medium-full bodied cigars, and nearly all of these cigars hit that mark for me. The only one that is more full in body and strength than I prefer is the La Herencia Cubana CORE. It is still a great cigar, but I have to prepare myself for it by eating a big meal first. The Man O'War Armada is nearly in that class too. All of the rest are well-above medium strength and body, but less than full. And they are all very satisfying, well-made, perfect burning cigars that bring me nothing but pleasure. There are several of these that I'm tempted to buy a box of, but then, I could just buy the sampler again and get to enjoy all of them for a great price. If you like AJ's cigars, and you enjoy top quality medium-full to full body cigars, this is the sampler for you.

Which one next!
This is an amazing selection of top notch cigars. It's hard to pick a favorite out of this grouping. However, I am going to have to lean towards the Ave Maria cigar. What an outstanding smoke. It is a full size cigar that burns evenly and has a comfortable draw to it. Whichever cigar that you start off with, it will be hard to decide which ones next! Highly recommend .

Powerful sampler
I enjoyed these so much that this must be my 3rd sampler that I've purchased. I' be noticed however some this these cigars looks like they have been patched up or repaired in someway. I guess that's why they are on special . Overall is still a great sampler.👍MJL

opinion
Each of the brands has it's own character and unique flavor and quality. What makes this sampler interesting is just that variety. Depending on your personal taste, perhaps you will find a brand you want more of. For me, I enjoy the variety because there is a cigar for each length of time that is appropriate for my walk and smoke.

Very good sampler with mild to moderately stronger cigars. The Wicked is my favorite

AJ Sampler
These cigars were well constructed. They are full bodied For the price this sampler cannot be beat. I would not pay full price for the cigars but when the sampler deals they should be bought Construction I would rate a 95, burn a 94, taste and smoke a 90. It is a strong 4 or 90 to 93 in my book. For my personal taste they are not quite a Padron higher end, but this sampler has been a standard for my daily cigars.

Outstanding!
I have smoked every cigar in this sampler, and not a bad smoke among them. One of the best samplers ever put out by CI. I enjoy trying new cigars, especially quality gars like the AJ Fernandez blends which are always tasty, smooth and well constructed. I have friends who stick by one brand and even one size in a brand. The variety and quality that this sampler offers is what keeps me searching the pages of Cigars International’s website for different cigars to try at reasonable prices. This is so far the best value sampler I have purchased.

loved them
I bought this sampler to get the two Ave maria cigars which were great,But for me the hidden gem was the Man of War Armada. Both of the Ave Maria cigars had great draw and flavor, but the Armada I feel had a better flavor and not as much of a bite at the end I will order these three cigars again along with the others in this sample.
5 out of 5
Awesome groups
This group of cigars is so well worth the price. The Armadas alone make this deal great. Not a bad cigar in the bunch.

Can't beat this price.
I've bought two of these samplers. The value-price ratio is just unbelievable... Ave Maria Reconquista and the Man O' War Armada alone, fit the price. All the others are great gifts. My ranking of the cigars in this sampler* 1. Ave Maria Reconquista 2. Man O' War Armada 3. Ave Maria Divina and Man O' War Ruination (tie) 4. La Herencia Cubana and Diesel Wicked (tie) 5. Diesel Rage (only good after LONG time in the humidor) I will keep buying this sampler with pleasure.

AJ Fernandez chosen one sampler.
I ordered one then after a few great smokes I ordered another. I was after the two different Ave Maria, but found the Diesel Rage as another new favorite. This is a GREAT DEAL if you like full flavor smokes. If it is available again I will order without any hesitation.

Solid sampler
A little bit of everything here. I like this sampler a lot because it brings a good variety to my humidor and the brand is solid. A few uneven burners here and there, but that could be because I didn't let them acclimate to my humidor first. I just had to burn a few when they arrived and finally realized my mistake. Its a very good value and tasty bunch!

All are real good cigars. Had 2 of the m.o.w armada burn not so good which is a bummer since they are a real good tasting cigar. Love the selection of fuller flavored cigars I will buy this sampler again it's a nice variety of different flavors. 2 bad burning cigars won't deter me from buying again. The Ave Maria are my favorites in the sampler.

The best way to get to know AJ.
This sampler has three of my old favorites and two new favorites. I like a full body cigar and this sampler will not let you down in the full body category. While I really prefer MOW cigars and there are only two versions of MOW in here, There re also two very nice Ave Maria choices and the Diesel Wicked that now is on my favorite list. The whole lot of 35 awesome tasty smokes is just what I like in my humidor.

Every one of these cigars are fantastic. I've purchased many samplers over the years. In most there is a cigar or two that is less than expected. In the AJ Fernandez Chosen One Sampler each and every cigar is a winner. The value in this sampler is amazing. I'll keep on coming back to this one.

AJ Fernandez Sampler
We are very pleased that we looked into these samplers. They are a strong cigar, but especially like the tenderness if you will of the smokes. They are not all dried out, like they ahve been setting on the shelf for 8 to 10 months. Secondly like the response time. We put the order in on Saturday and I received the cigars by the next Wednesday. I think the distance was from Florida to Ohio. Very Impressive. Thank you and we will be purchasing again!

Heaviest Hitting Sampler Yet!
An unbeleivable deal on some of AJ's best smokes. I've been smoking some of these blends for years; the Armada and Reconquistas alone in this sampler can go for $200 and 15-20 hrs of smoke time. There are no bad sticks in this bundle and the price is unreal.

All the cigars in the sampler are very good and so far have smoked beautifully.

What a deal!!!
I honestly bought this sampler because I was tired of waiting for the Reconquista to come back in stock :) That being said, I have tried many of these cigars and they are all great. The Divinia is honestly my favorite cigar, and I always have plenty of these on hand. Very strong, very complex flavor in all of these cigars, but I prefer a fuller cigar, so this sampler was the perfect match for me. AJ Fernandez is without a doubt the king of the full bodied cigar.

Just try not to smoke them all in 2 weeks! AMAZING CIGARS
I had tried just one or two of the cigars in this sampler before i bought it. The rest were on my "must try" list. I love all of these cigars, the reconquista with its maduro wrapper and perfect construction and burn has stolen first place. Every cigar in the bunch is amazing.

Heck of a deal

AJ's Chosen One
Hands down some of the best cigars the man has made to date. All of them are top notch blends and among my personal favorites. It's hard to pick just one or two favorites when talking about AJ's cigars, they all offer their own unique and very enjoyable experiences. I personally would be hard pressed to limit an AJ sampler like this to a certain number of brands. Diesel Heart of Darkness, Unholy Cocktail, Unlimited Maduro, Original Ave Maria, New World, Bellas Artes, Enclave, Relic and so many more. The list goes on. All high quality and a must for all AJ fans out there. Highly recommend and worth every penny.

I like all of the 7 in this sampler. It's rare to get Ave Maria Divinias, Ave Marie Reconquistas and Man of War Armada at these low prices. My favorite is the Divinia. Best cigar I ever smoked

Fantastic Cigars!!
AJ Fernandez makes some of the best full body cigars out there today. I have never been disappointed with any of his cigars. This sampler hits it out of the park. All of them are outstanding, especially my favorites Reconquista and Wicked. I would definitely purchase this again.
5 out of 5
How can you go wrong with AJ?
Answer: You can't! Most are AJs top shelf blends, and you can't touch the Reconquistas and Armadas ALONE for this price. Click and buy, you won't be disappointed.

Worth it
I am always one looking to get the best deal which is why I come to this site in the first place. To get all these high quality cigars that would cost me around 10 dollars or more for this price was exactly what I was looking for. Not to mention you get 5 Armadas when 20 would cost you over $500 dollars. If you are on the fence, take the plunge and buy it. (By the way, the Armadas will probably be the best cigars you have ever smoked.)

Phenomenal Full-Bodied Smokes
Been an AJ fan for years, and this sampler is as good as it gets. All the smokes are flavorful, full-bodied, and well made. The reconquistas and armadas offer the construction and flavor of premiums to save and enjoy for celebratory occasions. All for 3 bucks a piece, can't beat that.

Some cigars where dry
There where quite a few stale smokes in the bundle

Top of the line
La Herencia Cubana Core is one of my all time favorite smoke and because of this sampler Diesel Rage is another favorite. Plus this sampler comes with Reconquista AND Divinia both very expensive. One of the best deals around... in my not-so-humble opinion

A good variety of some of AJ's best, Get'em quick, I got locked out twice while they were on back order

Grab this great deal.
The Armadas and Reconquistas alone are worth much more than the price of this sampler. If you like full bodied cigars you can’t go wrong with this great bargain.

Powerhouse Sampler
I'd been waiting to purchase this sampler for a while just like a lot of the other writers in this forum. It was worth the wait. The variety of tastes embodied in this sampler is astounding. All amazing. However, buyer beware, there are some straight powerhouse smokes in this sampler not to be smoked on an empty stomach. I had to go lay down and take a nap after a few of these, but the sleep was pleasant and filled with dreams of beautiful bikini-clad babes.... That's what a sampler should do so don't miss out!
5 out of 5
One of the very best!
AJ makes some of the best full body gars on the planet and these are some of his better ones. The Man o War Ruination is a favorite of mine but the La Herneca " Core" is sneaking up on me as well.

Great FULL BODIED sampler
So here is the deal, when they say full bodied, they ain't joking. But, that is what the hubby wanted..so hubby got. He'd loved them all but the Ave Maria Divinia. It's good but really, more my style ;) Great price! Came in great smoking condition..since it was on back order (took 5 weeks to get) it didn't have time to sit in a warehouse. Highly recommend if your looking some great, stong smokes.

Best Sampler Ever
Great sampler at an unbeatable price - not a bad stick in the bunch!!!
5 out of 5
Outstanding deal!
Each one of these cigars is truly a treat for the cigar smoker who enjoys a full, complex smoke. I wouldn't rate any of these as "beginner" cigars, but chances are high that buyers for this price point aren't beginners hahaha. Seriously though, each one is different but delightful. The Divinias are obviously amazing, and the MOW Ruination is probably one of my favorite "sub $10" sticks out there. The Armada and Reconquista are both rich and complex, with notes of cocoa, earth, and espresso. Simply put... do yourself a favor and snap this up before it goes on backorder again. You won't regret it.

The deal of the century!!!
As a certifiable nut for all the AJ Fernandez brands this is a deal that cannot be beat...anywhere! A healthy fistfull of super premiums. Wonderful, full bodied goodness. If I were a selfish man I'd say stay away and leave more for me but I must share with my fellow fanatics. Buy 'em while you can, you'll be kicking yourself if you don't!
5 out of 5
So much to appreciate
I had high hopes for this selection, and it definitely did not disappoint. I have had all of the cigars featured here except the Ave Maria Divinia, which was amazing. These are all full flavored, amazingly rolled, and very tasty cigars. Thank you for putting this together!

Best sampler Ever.
I have purchased several great samplers from you, but this is the best one by far.
5 out of 5
Outstanding
As soon as I saw it, I had to have it. However, it was back ordered forever and even a trip to the Bethlehem store brought no satisfaction. Well I ordered it anyway and waited. Luckily, about a week and a half later it was briefly "in stock" and on its way to the house. I let 'em sit for 3 weeks or so and then broke out a Rage. It smoked beautifully. Since then, I had my first Wicked (not a big Maduro guy, but this is making me a believer), a Divinia (fantastic), decided on Armada to cap off a great Father's Day (an all-time favorite, it kept me company through the 4th Quarter of game 7 and enhanced my enjoyment of an unbelievable episode of "Game of Thrones"). Finally, the Immaculata became one of my Top 5. All this for a hundred bucks and I haven't even touched a Ruination or CORE, another favorite. Thank you AJ and thank you CI.

The only thing better than the cigars in this sampler is the price. These are AJ's cream of the crop, for a price you'd expect to find on mixed filler garbage. Well done CI!!

Only the Best!
I have to admit that I am still new to the cigar world and learning as I go. I share a cigar with a neighbor about twice a week at the end of the day. I started with a generic sampler and moved to blends that I enjoyed. I believe I have found the best sampler out there with the AJ Fernandez Chosenn One. It has all the blends that I have gravitated to in the past three years. I'm not going to pretend that I know everything about cigars, but I do know what I like. With this range of strength and flavor you can't go wrong.

5 out of 5
Whoo!
Without a doubt, the greatest sampler ever assembled by the evil mad squad at CI. As soon as I received the first catalogue featuring this monster, I proclaimed, "I must have it, I must have two of it." Then I went to order it, and it was backordered... for 10 weeks. Now I have it (two of them) and I have to say, it was worth the wait. Every AJ Fernandez hit, in all it's glory, in pristine condition, all delicious. Let me break it down: The Diesel Rage and Diesel Wicked are the best of the Diesel line. The Divinia and Reconquista, the greatest of the Ave Maria line. The Ruination and the Armada (which I smoke as I type), the greatest of the Man O War line. And the LHC Core, is an old, all time favorite. Simply stated... The Greatest. The Best. The Ric Flair of cigar samplers. Sixteen time World Heavyweight Champion. And if / when they raise the price... I'll still buy it.
5 out of 5
Outstanding!
I ordered this a few weeks ago and was backordered (of course) but you can't complain because look at what this sampler is. Customer service told me to expect my shipment in 2 weeks and they were right on the money. Once I received the shipment I was like a kid in the candy store. I closely inspected each cigar for any imperfections or damage and they were flawless. MOW Armada is an all time favorite of mine and worth the price of admission alone. I have had all of the cigars before with exception to Reconquista and the Diesel Wicked which I have always wanted to try both. Do not hesitate to get this deal before it's gone again, it is by far the best sampler CI offers.

The best sampler ever, period!
I've been a CI costumer for going on nine years and never seen any sampler this high end at this low of price. I've tried all these before, one here, one there, but never all together. AJ has some very affordable cigars, and they are to me all great. But when he charges extra you will taste where the money went. These are all my favorites that I can't afford by the box. AJ must be trying to boost sales on his high ends so when that works, say goodbye to this pack and one of the best cigar deals I have ever seen.
5 out of 5
Great sampler but...
Since it was on back order when I initially ordered it, seemed like it was gonna be a long wait..received a few emails from backorder dept offering another sampler but then they recvd many complaints that it wasn't an equal sampler so they couldn't offer it then they ran out of one of the cigars in the new compatible sampler so they offered a replacement which I was fine with excerpting.. Then low & be hold I recevd the original AJ sampler !! Was a lot of confusion, but definitely worked out for me in the end !!
5 out of 5
Size matters
O.K. I know this is my third review on this, but there is one more thing I must mention about this sampler. Just look at the size of these awesome cigars! How many times do you see samplers that are riddled with little 5x50 robustos? Not this one! These are all solid 90-120 minute smokes. It just adds even more value to this incredible sampler. Obviously I can't say enough good things about The AJ Fernandez Chosen One Sampler.
5 out of 5

PROBABLY THE BEST DEAL I EVER RECIEVED !!!! CIGARS WERE THE BEST LOT AS WELL. JUST MAD I DIDNT ORDER 3 MORE !!!!

If your a aj fan such as myself this is a must. Was at the superb store in nazareth, and they put one together for me. Awesome customer service and the woman who assisted me was knowledgeable and super nice. Not only did I get a amazing sampler, but a shopping experience that keeps me coming back and remain a dedicated city customer. Definitely pick one up, you won't be dissappointed!

5 star cigars and service
I wanted to take the opportunity to explain a point in my previous review. I said that I feel comfortable reviewing this before even receiving it. This is not just referring to the quality of the selection of cigars involved (which is bordering on unbelievable), but also because of the outstanding customer service of Cigars International. I have seen occasional reviews where people mention getting dried out cigars or cigars that won't burn or draw very poorly, and I feel very badly for them. But in my personal experience, I have purchased hundreds and hundreds of cigars through CI and every one of them has arrived in beautiful condition and in a timely manner (usually 2-3 days using CI Saver shipping or free shipping). And I live nearly halfway across the country in Indiana. CI is the best in so many ways. Keep it up! (I know you will).
5 out of 5
One of the best samplers Ive ever seen!
Total "Dittos" to the previous review by Thomas! Although mine is on backorder only a week after the catalog came out, I have smoked several of each cigar in this sampler. 4 of the 7 are in my top 10 and the other 3 are on the cusp of being in my top 15 favorites. Only correction I'd make to Thomas' review is that even without the Armadas and the Reconquistas, which sell for $25 a piece, this would still be an insane deal!
5 out of 5
5 stars are not enough
When I received the latest catalog from CI and saw this on the back cover, my jaw nearly hit the floor. The AJ Fernandez Chosen One Sampler is the best deal I've seen offered by CI, or by anyone for that matter. Even without the Divinia & Wicked & Rage included it would still be a great deal. I have all of these currently stocked (except the Wicked, which I've not yet tried) in my humidors. So I feel comfortable reviewing this sampler before even receiving it. I'm stocking up- I just put in an order for 4 of these. A 5 star rating doesn't do this one justice. I give it 7 stars, or 10, or 50 !!! Thank you AJ and especially CI for this totally insane deal. I'm looking forward to many hours of pure cigar bliss. Don't miss out on this one.
