Let me tell you why this Cigar Samplers deal is going to make the people crazy! 1) There are two #1 blends of the year in here. 2) One of the two is the MOST recent by EPC. 3) This ECP blend is pretty much "Sold Out" everywhere. 4) All the cigars are Toro size. 5) All the cigars are box-pressed. 6) All the cigars a premium long-filler from names you know and love. 7) The price is about 25% off retail. 8) I'm shipping this sampler to you for FREE in a bag that holds humidity for 90 days or until you open it. 9) This means you can smoke and enjoy these cigars as soon as you get them! 10) I'm not putting a reason here to drive the OCD folks bonkers.
First up is the Graycliff Nicaragua Habano ( 6 X 60 ). Quick history lesson. Graycliff used to be made only in the Bahamas at the Graycliff resort. The Graycliff resort is a super posh place and cigars made there will cost you about $40.00 each! The good people at Graycliff wanted good quality cigars that could be affordable for the everyday person. Thusly, these cigars are made in Nicaragua where the cost to make a cigar is way easier on the wallet! This blend has a little spice thanks to the Habano wrapper. This cigar is a good medium-bodied stick that has wonderful flavors and is a great value because you are not paying $40.00 for it. Fact, this entire sampler will get to your home for less than that! BOOM.
The Alec Bradley Prensado Toro ( 6 X 54 ) was the #1 blend of the year in 2011 with a staggering 96 points. The blend is fantastic ( Nicaraguan and Honduran), the taste is smooth with hints of red pepper, coffee, chocolate, and the body is medium-full. This cigar is a proven winner!
E.P. Carrillo Pledge has been named the #1 Cigar of 2020! The award comes with an impressive 98 point rating. The Sojourn ( 6 X 52 ) is the big brother to Prequel and that means more cigars for you to enjoy. Fact, this is the second time Ernie has won the #1 cigar of the year. The blend consists of a Habano Connecticut wrapper surrounding an Ecuadorian binder and Nicaraguan long-fillers, creating a medium to medium-plus bodied masterpiece with notes of cedar, leather, earth, nuts, espresso beans, and spicy oak. What? I'm sticking to that description! Journey with Ernie ( I should trademark that!!!)
The Rocky Patel Vintage 1990 Toro ( 5.5 X 50 ) may just actually be a larger Robusto. I'm sitting here baffled by the size. It's slightly smaller than the Pledge from above so I'm sticking with a short Toro or Robusto Grande. Vintage 1990 is a blend of Dominican and Nicaraguan Ligero draped in a natural Broadleaf wrapper from Honduras. It's medium-bodied and box pressed with a really enjoyable, complex smooth flavor. I've heard Rocky say that it's rich and creamy so it must be true!
This is a stunning array of box-pressed lovelies that I am happy to put my companies name too! This is what Cigar Samplers is about. A true cigar sampler for those who enjoy a great smoke. Thank you all for your support!
