Nice mixture of fine cigars. I enjoyed the Vegas Fives the best. Macanudo has a higher opinion of its products than most of we common folk as witnessed by he teeny weeny cigar included in this sampling. Get a life Macanudo. WTB

When I buy an assortment of cigars like this it’s so I can test drive several different cigars and decide if I would buy a box of that particular cigar. This was an opportunity to try several and happily enough they were all good.

Just in time for the New Year!
After careful review, I finally ordered the Kings of Connecticut Sampler. So far I've only smoked the Hoya, Rocky Patel and the Vegas 5 Gold. Out of those three I would have to say I like the Rocky the best (very mild cigar). I am looking forward to smoking the Perdomo, I'm certain that it will also be a great smoke. As for the Macanudo and Monty, I have smoked plenty of them and they are great as well... Smokem if you got'em!!!
