"Buy a Montecristo #2, get 4 middling smokes free?"
Famous Mild Body Sampler 'D'
So I've been enjoying medium-body cigars for a while, and developed a fondness for torpedos and pyramids. Thought I'd branch out, see what a milder body smoke had to offer. This sampler's big draw (no pun intended) is the Montecristo, which sells by itself for $2 less than the whole sampler. I figured (gah, again no pun intended!) what've I got to lose?
Well, the star of the show satisfied and then some! Complex and creamy, and I'll definitely be adding some of these Montecristo Yellow torpedos to my "nice box". But...
The rest of the sampler was a big disappointment. The Don Diego I expected to be bland, and it was. The La Fontana wasn't much better (though it drew better and had a sweetened cap that gave it some character). The "Isla del Sol" is an extremely coffee-liqueur dipped cigar, very well-made for the breed but only pleasant if you like candied cigars.
I haven't tried the Montesino yet; I have some hope.
Basically, I think this sampler helped me decide that I'm just not much of a mild-cigar fellow, or maybe just not into the Robusto shape. Or both.

Famous Mild Body Sampler 'H'
Some great smokes at good value. The RP was the only one I haven't purchased again. Turned me on to Cubao, which I now love. Famous really does the job with these samplers and this is an awesome one.

Famous Full Body Sampler 'X'
I wouldn't have bother bidding if I knew I was going to pay $8 to ship my $12 worth of cigars. Crazy,

"Good sample, but not so balanced"
Famous Medium Body Sampler 'D'
Some of these ar awesome smokes, but I wasnt really thrill about the cubao and the patriarch.
The RP 1961 was a pleasant surprise, really nice.
The best one is the Camacho

Famous Mild Body Sampler 'C1'
Iv'e smoked al of these cigars @ one time or another and I like em all, Esp the lot 23s and the Cusanos. I think this would be a good step up for the newer smokers that want to try a more fuller body stogie.

"some good... some bad...some ok"
I will never buy anything from Cruz real again. They make big fat Cigarettes. Crackles as it burns and horrid taste. The Padron was lovely but horridly uneven burn. The Camacho started out lovely but after the 1/2 way mark got really harsh. Will avoid buying those again for the price. I've had cigars 1/4 of the price with no harsh and all the good taste. The CAO was smooth and kept a nice crisp line but not a lot of flavor going on with that one. The RP honduran was by far my favorite. Really nice smoke. Dense earthy tobacco flavor. Wavering line though. Wish they would fix that. I say they toss out the Cruz real permanently from the entire market. Fix that harshness in the Camacho and straighten up the lines and I will get this sampler again.
