Default What was your first box purchase?

So Iíve been smoking for about 8 months now and am still deciding on my first box purchase both NC and CC still. I think some of my top contenders are Hoyo Iíve had the black and like them but I want to try the gold and silver to see how they compare but I really like them and they are a good price. Possibly brickhouse Iíve had a few and really liked them too. Cuban wise Iím pretty limited and have only had about 7-8 With so far my favorite being the PSD4. I want my first boxes to be kinda special. So I was curious what everyone elseís first boxes were!

NC: Gran Habano Imperiales Corojo
CC: Bolivar Belicosos Finos

The Gran Habano is a great golfing cigar -- sturdy wrapper and will last me for 9 holes. It's also a great cigar for road trips -- the wrapper can withstand my metal-pronged ashtray that I use in the car

The BBF is just an all-around great cigar.

Oh, well my CC box came a few years later then the Carlos Torano and it was a box of Vega Robaina No 2’s. That was 2008?

Now on the NC box, I didn’t count my Thompson humidor with 25 Thompson cigars as technically that was my first non single cigar purchase but quickly followed by a CI sampler with a humidor and good thing as the Thompson’s I got were terrible.

First NC box was either Diesel Unholy Cocktail or Ramon Bueso GTP. Can't remember which, but I caught a smokin deal within my first month on the devil site. Didnt have room at that time for that many, but the addiction was full-bore at that time.

Still haven't bought a box of CC. Pretty sparce around these parts, so when the opportunity presents itself I'll just grab a couple of sticks at a time. I try to devote funds to something I can lay my hands on again relatively easily...

I smoked cigars a long time before I started buying boxes. I seldom bought more than five of anything and as long as my desktop humidor was somewhat full I was at peace. Then I stumbled onto this Club Stogie place and things just went to hell.

First box purchases:

NC - Padron Delicias Maduro

CC - RASS
