To me, it depends on the cigar - how the filler, the binder and the wrapper are balanced.
I used to prefer Maduro wrappers over Claro. Now I prefer Claro to Maduro.
Cigars, like shaving, high end audio and a variety of other pursuits, are very much "just my opinion and YMMV". :)
With fragrances, it's hard to predict how the combination of the fragrance will combine with your body chemistry until you try it.
Samplers can certainly provide access to a variety of scents without breaking the bank. At least get you pointed in a general direction.
