I have always been a fan of cigar samplers. Yes, there are several brands I would definitely spend the money to buy a full box. However, there are so many amazing options these days, and I hate to limit myself to several of one cigar.
I like a plethora of options, and that is exactly what you get with a cigar sampler. Here at JR, we have prided ourselves on our massive selection of cigars. This includes our wide array of samplers.
While many tend to only look towards our more high-end, expensive selection of cigar samplers, there are several cheap cigar samplers that give you a great bang for your buck. Let’s take a look at some top-notch cigar samplers that won’t break the bank.
AUSA Private Reserve Edition VIII
This sampler from Altadis USA showcases a wide array of amazing, name brand cigars for a great low price. Not only does it offer different brands, but also different flavor and strength varieties, making sure that there will be the perfect cigar for you. It has five tremendous options for less than $22.
This sampler has cigars from each of AUSA’s most popular brands. It includes two Romeo y Julieta’s, an Onyx, a H.Upmann, and of course, a Montecristo. The two Romeos, the 1875 and Reserva Real, are among the best-selling cigars in the world. The H. Upmann Vintage Cameroon is one of the best showcases of this wrapper in the industry, and the Montecristo Afrique provides rich, dark flavor for the fuller-bodied smoker.
CAO Family Sampler #2
CAO is a world-renowned brand. This is due, in part to their unique blends made up of special tobaccos from countries you generally wouldn’t see in the cigar industry. The CAO World Series is almost exclusively made up of cigars with these unique tobaccos. This sampler offers a great example of some of the finest cigars from this World Series.
This five-cigar sampler includes smokes from the CAO Brazilia, CAO America, CAO Italia, CAO Colombia, and CAO Consigliere. Each of these cigars offers up unique experiences and uses special tobaccos grown from their namesake countries.
The CAO Brazilia is one of the most legendary cigars in the industry. In a lot of ways, it is responsible for the emergence of Brazilian tobaccos in more mainstream cigars. You can experience tobaccos from several different countries for less than $25.
Oliva Mixed Collection #6
Usually, I prefer a sampler made up of several different brands. This gives me the chance to experience the process of different factories and blends while letting me figure out which I like the best.
However, with a company like Oliva, they have such a wide range of cigars. A sampler like this is guaranteed to give you a different experience with each one. This mixed collection is made up of four of the most popular Oliva cigars. For the mellow smoker, you will love the Oliva Connecticut Reserve.
For the more medium-bodied aficionado, the Oliva G or Oliva O will be right up your alley. For a rich, bold, and high-end experience, you are going to thoroughly enjoy the Oliva Master Blend III, one of their highest-rated smokes.
Perdomo 4-Pack Humidified Connecticut Sampler
Perdomo is not only one of the largest and most popular manufacturers in the industry, but in my mind, is one of the most consistent. They pride themselves on their quality control and their ability to create unique and interesting blends, all with tobaccos they maintain themselves. This sampler is particularly interesting because while the blends in the cigar are different, they all share a similar wrapper.
This Perdomo sampler contains four cigars, each using a stunning Connecticut wrapper. However, each cigar offers up something different. The Perdomo Habano offers a touch of spice and a little more body than expected.
The 10th anniversary Champagne is a stunning, mellow to medium smoke; this is smooth, creamy, and will burn tremendously from end to end. This sampler is perfect for showing the versatility of the Perdomo brand.
Gurkha Executive Toro Collection
Gurkha has been a fan favorite for years. They are amongst the most impressive lineups of cigars— each one with a unique blend and unique story. In fact, they have so many lines sometimes it’s hard to keep up and find out which one you would prefer. This Executive Sampler in the Toro size will help you navigate through the plethora of rich and flavorful Gurkha lines.
This sampler contains eight different Gurkha cigars. It ranges from the popular Grand Reserve and Master Select line to the more boutique hidden gems such as the Westminster and Beauty. They all come in the Toro Vitola, which is one of the most popular and best-selling cigar sizes.
