What does everyone think about Man O' War? The Ruination is currently my favorite cigar.

I'm looking for a recommendation on a 10 count for under $50 or so. Maybe a popular sample pack of some sort. I need to learn what I like. What websites do you guys order from?

I order from quite a few places. Famous-smoke, CigarsInternational, cigarhustler, smokeinn, superiorcigars, topqualitycigars, egars.... I'm sure I'm forgetting some lol.

When it comes to samplers I think cigarhustler.com has a great selection. I look around and post back if I find anything.

I've smoked some in the past and were pleased with them. I don't smoke them anymore probably because they aren't on the shelves at places I smoke.

I am going to enjoy this estilo cubano I picked up about a month ago at my local B&M on the recommendation of one of the tobacconists that I have come to trust. Lets see how it goes. I think I'll pair it with a nice old chub.

After a little digging these looked pretty solid....

CI - Oliva 5 star sampler - 5 cigars $35- Ive actually bought this before and I liked all 5 cigars.

CI - 92+ Rated Big-name showdown - 10 cigars and on sale right now for $35 - Ive had most of the cigars in the sampler and their good smokes. I think this one at this price is a great pick.

CI - Done Pepin My Father & Friends - 8 cigars $40 - Never had anything from La Reloba but the other cigars in that sampler are great.

Famous-smoke - 'Best of Oliva' sampler - 10 cigars $48 - this one has some solid smokes at a fair price. The Oliva V is one of my favorite cigars.

Famous-smoke - Best of Oliva Sampler #5 - 16 cigars $55 - I havent had all of these but what I have smoked from Oliva and Nub Ive liked.

Famous-smoke - 'Best of 601' sampler - 10 cigars $39 - All these cigars are awesome and are different in strength/body. Good price too.

That Oliva 5 star is in the 3 5- packs for $50 thing that CI does also so for another $15 you can get 10 additional sticks to try out as well. Just sayin.
