The Chosen One

The finest sampler ever created, The Chosen One V.

If I offered you Cohiba, Rocky Patel, Gurkha, Montecristo, La Gloria, and more for right around $3.25 per cigar, you'd ask what the catch is. If I promised to stock your humidor with 35 of the biggest brand name cigars for $115, you'd say I was crazy. If I were to tell you I could save you almost $350 on one sampler, you'd call me a liar. But a crazy, swindling liar I am not. And I'm delivering as promised. The proof is in the pudding, just look below at what's quite possibly the finest sampler ever created - the aptly named Chosen One.

The Chosen One V Sampler includes:
5 - Cohiba Red Dot Robusto (5" x 49)
5 - Montecristo Media Noche Edmundo (5" x 55)
5 - Gurkha Beauty (6" x 58)
5 – Rocky Patel Decade Robusto (5" x 50)
5 – Man O' War Ruination Robusto #1 (5.5" x 54)
5 - La Gloria Cubana Serie R No. 5 (5.5" x 54)
5 – Macanudo Café Hyde Park (5.5" x 49)

I actually emptied my shopping cart out twice before I found this bundle and had been ordering seconds because of the price. But at $3 a stick for 90+ cigars, I had to have it. Good job guys.

Overall, I am very pleased with this Sampler. Great selection -- great cigars. My only complaint is with the La Gloria Cubanos -- the two I've smoked thus far had a very hard core which made for an impossible draw.

Great price, great delivery, and best of all really great cigars
Thanks to CI I can enjoy a great mix of the world's finest cigars. I could not afford to smoke Montecristo, Cohiba, Macanudo, and the other greats if it was not for CI's samplers- great variety, great price, and great service.

Great cigars with the possible exception of the La Gloria Cubana Series R No. 5. With three different cigars, I could not get the cigar to draw.

Great bang for your buck!
I thought this deal was too good to be true... but I was wrong. This is a great way to get a terrific assortment of cigars at an unbelievably low price. There were two cigars brands in the bundle I would not have tried on my own - not even risking the money on one stick - which is obviously why they bundle the popular smokes with some of the lesser-known ones (at least they're "lesser known" to me), and I'm glad they did - because I discovered a couple of new smokes that I would buy again. And even if they're weren't my taste, they'd still great to hand out to friends! Cheers!

Mostly Very Good
Recently tried the Chosen One V sampler. C.I. has put together a great selection of satisfying cigars that are a pleasure to sit down with. The sizes make for a reasonable amount of time for the afternoon relaxing, have a smoke and a drink, time. I an very disappointed in the Monte Cristo Media Noche cigar included. I have tried two now and they were just awful! Loosely wrapped and mushy! One had a split near the cut end that ruined the draw. The taste was harsh I believe due to the looseness of the cigar making it burn very hot. Yuck! But the remainder of the sample brands were excellent. I'll try the other included Montes before I decide to try this sampler again.

I'm not an aficionado but I do know a good smoke when I get one. This sampler has plenty of good cigars at a price you can't find anywhere else. Lots of smoking enjoyment packed into one sampler!

For the most part the cigars held up there reputation. All the rocky Patel cigars had holes in them. But the others were fine. Maybe just a bad batch.

The Chosen One V is by far the best sampler from CI in the 5+ years I've been buying from them. Top rated brands, for a top rated price! Keep 'em coming CI!

The Chosen One (and done) V Sampler
One of the best samplers I've ever ordered. Not a bum in the batch. I don't light up every day so I want something good when I do; and I'm not the Monopoly guy so I'm not going to buy a $15-$25 stick. Every cigar in this sampler is worth the price and, more importantly, the time.

Hmmm
So far, good. Just last night I selected one of the chiba cigars to try . Sadly , I couldn't smoke it. It was dry and the wrapper flaked I nto pieces. The other selections have been great, though. On an additional note..... the Cohibas were shipped loose , not in a sealed bundle as the others were. I've had the same problem with a bonus purchase of Vegas 5's last fall. Overall, I have enjoyed the selections . BTW , yes, I do store in a humidor that currently is around 68% .
5 out of 5
Great Deal
This is one of the best deals I have come across from CI, and I've come across a lot.
5 out of 5
Great sampler
This is the best sampler in my opinion. Different varieties for whatever occasion. The cohiba's are a great bonus but I am mostly excited about finding a new smoke I wouldn't have normally grabbed of the shelf and that's the montecristo media noche. It's defiantly my favorite in this sampler. dont forget to add more monte Cristos to your order, you won't be disappointed.

If you are a seasoned cigar smoker you probably know the value of this sampler already. Now if you are a new enthusiast or are looking to buy a great gift for the cigar smoker in your life then let me just say this is one of the best you will find. Every one of these blends are excellent and create one great looking humidor.. They don't call it The Chosen One for nothing!

A nice mix
A nice mix of various sizes for different occasions/moods. Some are outstanding e.g. the Ghurkas and the Monte Christo Media Noche, too.
3 out of 5
Mostly a good experience
Great sampler, reasonable price. My only reason for not giving a higher rating is due to my poor experience with the Gurka cigars. Uneven burn issues on two occasions have scrapped this brand for me. I will not reorder until something else takes the place of the Gurkas.

This sampler is a very good choice when you crave a mix in your daily smoke. The cigars range from excellent to average, but allows to have that flexibility in choice of what type of cigar I want for the day.

On a budget
The cigars here are less expensive and fresher than my local cigar shop. I meight smoke 2 cigars plus and minus a week so I can't justify spending 12 dollars a cigar for the cigars I was smoking 6 years ago for 5 or 6 bucks. My retirement money did not double in the last 5 years so I look for great deals on quality cigars. The Christmas specials were great and my family got me cigars so I am set for the next 5/6 months :)

MY HUBBY IS HAPPY!!
My husband is an avid cigar lover and I am a woman who knows absolutely nothing about cigars! I bought him a 250 count cigar humidor for Christmas so of course I wanted to get him some cigars as well.....he loved them all so much he even told me yesterday that one of the cigars in this pack is now his new all time favorite! Thank you for making it easy for a woman to buy cigars and make her guy so happy!

the chosen one
All cigars were fine except the Gurkha Beauty. This was quite possibly one of the worst cigars i’ve ever smoked. The wrapper came apart, cracked, and fell off on every one. They all burned down the middle, leaving the outsides unburnt and needing to constantly being recut. They all tasted like I was smoking a burnt rope. Since the other cigars were all fine it wasn’t my humidor. I will never buy this chosen one again unless they delete the Gurkha Beauty (Ugly).

I bought these cigars for my fiancée. He absolutely loved the assortment and selection of the cigars. He has already smoked several of them and stated they were great cigars. I would definitely buy them again.

Not so fast
Appears to be a good value, but frustration over poor draw changed that. I've never been a fan of the Gurkha Beauties (uneven burn) and the Montecristo Media Noche Edmundo tunnels on every stick I've ever smoked. This would be a decent sampler without the ten cigars I've mentioned if sold at a lower price. As it is, I won't buy it again.

The Chosen One, a Great Choice.
I give this 5 stars because each of these cigars is truly a great cigar in it's own right. I also give it 5 stars because the "sampler" factor is incredibly true, as these are all very different smokes, with very unique characteristics. Thirdly the price on these is damn good for what you get. You definitely won't be disappointed with this selection and having these in your humidor.

The majority of these cigars will be taking a long rest in the humidor over the winter. Having enjoyed most of the cigars in this sampler before, and trying the ones that I hadn't, I can say that every one of these cigars is an above average smoke. Fast delivery to New York and in great condition. Can't wait to see what CI comes up with for number six.

Good value & really good cigars. I was really looking forward to the Oliva Master Blend III 5pk & and the man of war Robusto 1 is good but think the Robusto II or Belicoso would have been a lot more similar value replacement.
