6-pack Cigar Samplers

Brazilian 6-pack #1Cigars are sold in a number of ways. You've got your boxes, bundles, singles, and your 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 samplers generally comprise same-size cigars from one particular brand, whereas Variety type 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 #2For 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.
