Cigar Rights of America (CRA) has announced the release of its latest sampler.
This is a MUST HAVE!
It features cigars from 10 different manufacturers, many of which represent flagship offerings from each of the companies.
Alec Bradley Mundial PL #56 (6 1/4 x 56)
Fuente Fuente OpusX Oro Oscuro
Diamond Crown Black Diamond Emerald (6 x 52)
Don Pepin Original Connecticut (6 x 52)
La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse Viceroy (5 3/4 x 54)
La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull (6 1/2 x 52/54)
Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado (6 1/x 52)
Padrón Black No. 200 (5 1/2 x 56)
Rocky Patel 50th Anniversary Toro (6 x 52)
Tatuaje Fausto Limited SA (6 x 52)
Each one of these cigars is absolutely phenomenal. As you can see, The Padrón Black No. 200 is a size that has not been released before. Each sampler gives the purchaser a basic one-year membership to Cigar Rights of America.
The proceeds of the samplers are being used to help CRA with its mission.
While every sampler deal looks amazing on paper some just do not live up the hype. The CRA Freedom sampler 2019 is not one of those samplers. The value that is packed into this high end cigar sampler is off the charts.
I did a quick search for each cigar in the sampler and here is what I found for single stick prices. I am sure they all have a range, but these were my results.
Alec Bradley Mundial PL #56 (6 1/4 x 56) - $44.50
Fuente Fuente OpusX Oro Oscuro - $25.00
Diamond Crown Black Diamond Emerald (6 x 52) - $20.50
Don Pepin Original Connecticut (6 x 52) - $9.50
La Aroma de Cuba Noblesse Viceroy (5 3/4 x 54) - $15.10
La Flor Dominicana Andalusian Bull (6 1/2 x 52/54) - $15.00
Oliva Serie V Melanio Figurado (6 1/x 52) - $13.30
Padrón Black No. 200 (5 1/2 x 56) - $14.99
Rocky Patel 50th Anniversary Toro (6 x 52) - $21.00
Tatuaje Fausto Limited SA (6 x 52) - $39.00
While I do realize that these prices can vary depending on availability and where you buy them they have all been very close. The total for the sampler broken down is valued at roughly $217.89. Based on that number alone you are getting a great deal. The value in this sampler that I found was beyond the price. There are a few sticks in here that I know I would not buy. It's not that they are bad cigars, but we are creatures of habit. Once you get set on a brand, wrapper, filler, or any other part of the cigar that you enjoy you tend to stick with it. This is a package filled with top end cigars that cover a spectrum of different brands, flavors, and tastes. I would have to say that not only is this sampler a bargain by price but it's even more valuable for the range you get to try.
I would highly recommend going out and grabbing one to experience each and every cigar it contains. I purchased mine form cigargod.com. Fast shipping and great customer service.
