These were great! I liked the Rosado and American Market the best. Had a little trouble with one Nicaraguan, but it was either a one time issue or cured by 4 or 5 weeks in the humidor.
I ended up with 2 AB 1633 cigars instead of the 2 black markets, i decided to give it a shot and quite frankly i m disappointed because they are absolutely abhorrent to smoke. My sampler should have been called the Best of Alec Bradley Connecticut Wrappers sampler since they constituted 6 out of 10 60% of the cigar i received. List of what i got and my smoking experience with them. 2 AB Alec Bradley Sun Grown: This is tasty cigar and its a shame that they decided to give me the 1633 instead of more of these beauties. These are great cigars for the price point and are the only reason i don t reel ripped off from this sampler. 2 AB 1633 Connecticut: Godawful cigar that has a loose draw and with a terrible bitterness throughout. How this was considered a good substitute for a Black market is beyond me. 2 AB Connecticut: Not as Godawful as the 1633 but the loose draw didn t help matters. This was a poor tasting cigar that was a chore to smoke. 2 AB American Sun Grown: Blah cigar that was only marginally better than the other Connecticuts. 2 AB Nica Puro: Have not smoke any but i m hopeful since its not a Connecticut. Seems that a loose draw on Alec bradley s is something you want to avoid since they taste terrible. I enjoy black markets and my observation is that those with a loose draw i always have to put down early. It seems that if the construction of AB are too loose the cigar will taste terrible.
Great honest cigars. Only problem is their shipping sux took 5 days to get my order to me and I live 5 hours away in same state10

Enjoyed this sampler and would buy it again.00
Backwoods are my favorite. I love the different flavors that come in this sampler pack.10
Every cigar is killer.. Great value as well.00
Great flavors, Aging room F55 was awesome. Ashton came cracked in the tip, the bubble wrap bag was to tight for the 7 1/2 churchill. The cigar came bent and cracked in the tip. Other then that cigars were fresh and good.00
Bought a single of the Camacho Torpedo @ local liquor store with in-house humidor. It was the one with orange band. A stout smoke too stout for me, senor , but it s very consistent, full-bodied !ay caramba! , and not for the faint of heart. For smokers who like strong cigars,this ll be your go-to cigar. I think the criollo wrapper is more my speed.00
These are some of the newest cigars introduced to me by Famous...These also appear to be exclusive to Famous...I have not smoked even 1 of each cigar yet...I was so darn impressed with Cunning...And you can really identify the maker as soon as you get that 1st blast...JDN makes full blown, powerful smokes...Even those with Connecticut wrappers...But they have flavors in Spades...And the VUDU CT was next in the line up...It is a smallish cigar, bout 5x45...This assortment sells the dream, but the cigars deliver here...Smoke em if you have em10
