Brazilian 6-pack #1 cigar samplersCigars are sold in a number of ways. You’ve got your boxes, bundles, singles, and your cigar samplers. The latter has become the most economical way to buy cigars because you don’t have to commit to a full box, and five cigars is a comfortable enough amount to determine whether the brand in question is worth investing in a box or bundle, whatever the case may be.

Famous Smoke Shop has had a successful cigar sampler program for a number of years. The bulk of the 5-Pack cigar samplers generally comprise same-size cigars from one particular brand, whereas Variety type cigar samplers offer a mix of brands that can range from as few as three to as many as 24 different cigars, and even more with some samplers.

Recently, Famous Smoke Shop introduced a new 6-Pack Samplers program that offers the best of both worlds at very budget-friendly prices. As the name conveys, each sampler includes six cigars in total, presented in three different pairs of nationally recognized brands. Among them, household names like Arturo Fuente, Macanudo, Cohiba, Montecristo, Rocky Patel, Perdomo, Romeo y Julieta, CAO, and many more. Created to appeal to the entire spectrum of cigar consumers, the samplers are categorized by leaf type, strength, and country of origin, plus a few coffee-flavored cigar samplers. Not only do they offer a variety of cigars, but many 6-Pack Samplers include cigars of different sizes and shapes.

Cameroon 6 Pack #2 cigar samplersFor example, the “Cameroon 6-Pack #2” includes a pair of Nub Cameroon 464T’s, Cohiba Robustos and Hemingway Signatures. The “Full Body 6-Pack #1” includes Joya De Nicaragua Antaño 1970 Gran Consuls, Camacho Triple Maduro 50/4.5′s and Oliva Cain Serie F 550 Habanos. The “Dominican 6-Pack #3” includes Montecristo White No.2′s, La Flor Dominicana Mambises and Arturo Fuente Don Carlos Presidentes. The “Coffee 6-Pack #1” includes Tabak Especial Negra, Tatiana Mocha and Java cigars.

Those are just a few examples, but there are many other 6-Pack Sampler categories such as “Criollo,” “Mild,” “Mild Maduro,” “Brazilian,” “Corojo,” “Broadleaf,” “Nicaraguan,” and even a “Bestsellers” 6-Pack.

“We really went all-out in trying to match up the best cigars in each category,” said Famous Smoke Marketing Director, Mike Vandenstockt. “This new sampler program will not only satisfy the cigar smokers who are looking for the big name brands at reasonable prices, but they’ll also be able to sample them in a whole new way.”

The Famous 6-Pack Sampler program is sure to get a lot of attention from newer cigar smokers, who love experimenting, now that it’s so easy for them to find cigars in different wrappers, sizes, and strengths, as well as specific countries of origin.

The world's fastest, friendliest, and best place to buy cigars! Since 1939, Famous Smoke Shop has prided itself on offering the freshest, largest selection cigars at the most competitive prices, and customer service that can't be beat.

In this series of blogs, I’ll explain how these sampler programs work, what the benefits are, and hopefully, make the case for you to give them a try.

Earlier this week, I wrote about “Best Of “Cigar Samplers. Today we’ll focus on another unique cigar sampler program, Wise Buys. Of special note is that all Wise Buy Samplers are on sale this weekend only, Friday October 1st through Sunday, October 3rd.

Many cigar smokers don’t realize that they could be saving literally hundreds, while still enjoying cigars of similar quality, made in the same factories, by the same tabaqueros, using tobaccos of identical or near-identical quality.

Wise Buys offer one-part cigar comparison, and one-part entertainment. Each sampler contains 5 cigars from a highly-rated national brand, and 5 comparable Famous Value Priced Alternatives. What’s more, each is named after a gangster with a description to match.

The Famous alternatives were chosen by our crack team of cigar-chomping employees, and each makes a very convincing case for our Famous Value Brands!

With 20 Wise Buys samplers (and more on the way),
there’s surely a Wise Buy sampler to suit your flavor and strength preference. If you can find it, you could find yourself with a lot more money in your pocket!

Last week, I wrote about Samplers by Strength. This week I’m going to focus on another unique sampler program: “Best Of “Cigar Samplers.

Like all our cigar sampler programs, this one focuses on a common theme. In this case, most of the samplers feature the best cigars from a given manufacturers. It offers an affordable way to try or stock up on cigars made by your favorite cigar makers, brands, and wrappers.

For instance, many “Best Of” samplers are made by one manufacturer. The “Best Of Oliva” sampler contains a pair-each of Famous 70th Anniversary by Oliva, NUb Habano, Oliva Serie G, Serie O, and Serie V Ligero cigars.

Similarly, some “Best Of” samplers contain cigars from several different lines of one brand. The “Best Of La Floridita” sampler is one such, containing 4-each of our La Floridita Fuerte, La Floridita Limited Edition, and regular La Floridita and La Floridita Maduro.

Lastly, the “Best Of Maduro” sampler features 20 cigars, including a pair-each of 601 Habano Oscuro Green, CAO Brazilia, Cuvee 151, Rocky Patel Olde World Reserve, Padrón, and many more.

Cigars at Famous Smoke Shop come in so many different configurations that you could easily find yourself overwhelmed. That’s especially true of our sampler programs, each of which is driven by its own unique concept.

In this next series of blogs, I’ll explain how these sampler programs work, what the benefits are, and hopefully, make the case for you to give them a try.

Samplers by Strength Samplers by Strength is one of the coolest programs we’ve come up with recently. The idea is simple: cigar samplers are arranged by strength into an easy-to-use interface.

Start by deciding what suits you best: mild-bodied, medium-bodied, or full-bodied cigars. From there, you can scroll through until you find a sampler that suits you, and even sort them by popularity, price, and name.

They come in a wide range of prices, from the Famous Mild Body Sampler ‘N’ to the Famous Full Body Sampler ‘J’. There are currently 5-cigar and 10-cigar samplers available.

Because our crack team of cigar-lovers created samplers with cigars that “make sense” together, the benefit of Samplers by Strength is twofold:

  • You have a sense of what to expect, even from cigars you’ve never tried
  • You can focus on trying cigars that are “right in your wheelhouse”

We’ve already heard a chorus of praise from our customers. Go ahead…check out the Samplers by Strength page, and let us know what you think in the comments section.
