I've been a Robb Vices subscriber for a while now and I have been very happy with most all of my boxes. Some of them have been absolute home runs for me like the mezcal box, the Clase Azul tequila box, and the recent speaker box and briefcase/computer bag which was awesome. Some of them weren't for me (I don't drink coffee, and there was a coffee themed box) but that made for a great gift. There are a lot of things that I don't think I ever would have tried without this subscription-like sake which I now love. The book that comes along with the box is also an interesting read. It does require a signature to receive the box, which means sometimes you have to track down UPS to make sure that they deliver it again if you aren't home, but the customer service team has always made sure that I got my box int he times that I missed it.
Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
