I would have to say my most satisfying purchase would be my '03 50CAB of HDM Des Dieux. Every stick I have smoked has been perfectly constructed and delicious.

Got to be a cigar with one of the most laborious names in smokedom: Joya de Nicaragua Antano Dark Corojo El Martillo. Love the zesty dark corojo wrapper on this emphatic cigar in my fave shape 5.5 x 54.
And the box's sturdy Drew Estate construction of heavy wood is a bonus.
The boxed cigars i've nabbed at cigarbid do not have cello. But the 10-packs do. No matter as I have quit smoking cellophane.
Cannot get enuf of this wonderful cigar.

Tough call... But if I was pinned down, probably a blind purchase of some OR DPG Centurion Robos(G'). Got them super cheap from Holts, which adds to the bonus. Close 2nds, HUp Mag 48's or some JL2's('08-'09?'s) that I split, that smoked like graham crackers.

Most satisfying, probably my first box purchase. Monte #2, I remember the day the box came in, I was so juiced up that it even went on a car ride with me to the store.

My most satisfying box purchase has to be the green box sir winstons. I haven't opened them yet and they may be junk for all I know, but I've been looking for years and finally got one. Most satisfying.

The most satisfying smoke from a box purchase is probably a tie between the 02 cab of Party Lonsdales (way better than the 98s, IMO) and the 02 HU PCs.

I must also add that, over the years, I have had the good fortune to gift various boxes to amazing and deserving people whom I know. Those are the most valued boxes that I have purchased, even though I did not know that I was going to gift them when I bought them.
Wow, green box sir Winnies. That's awesome. Tip o'the hat to you sir.

My most satisfying boxes purchased I can only narrow down to three:

05 PLPC
A little under a half cab o 04 HdM DC
A ten count box of 04 Sig VI

All were purchased from a private seller getting out of the hobby back in 2010ish. Also got a fiver of 05 CCE's, and a fiver of bandless cc's (3 of which im pretty darn sure are/were p lonsdales).

I spent a lot of money that month. But TOTALLY worth it.

Wow, that's tough.

My first box was a box of Arturo Fuente Chateau Fuente Maduros in 1980 - yummy stuff.

Then a box of Punch Super Rothschilds - 1991.

Recently, my box of H.Uppman Mag 50s, have 2 left.

I must also say the box of Oliva V Melanio Petite Coronas.

Peace of the Lord be with you.

This is a tough question. There have been so many great boxes of cigars over the years, but the one that jumped to mind first was my box of Padron 3000 Naturals. I am halfway through the box of 26 and can say those first 13 were fantastic.

Another one that jumped to mind was my Rocky Patel Private Cellar Toro. I bought these on a whim, even after reading a less than stunning review on Cigar Inspector. I am only through the first 5 of this box, but they have been very nice smokes.

Default Re: Most satisfying box purchase?

I'd have to go with a box of Perdomo Lot 23 Maduro Robustos a few years back. Why, you ask? Thanks for asking, I reply. I'd been smoking cigars for years, but only occasionally and not with any scrutiny towards what I was smoking. I got stationed in Europe and had access to CCs, so started smoking more but still without any kind of introspection; I'd have a Swisher Sweet one week and a Punch Punch the next with little thought to either.

Then one day while I was deployed to the Middle East I had a CC Cohiba that was so friggin' good it made me want to become a cigar smoker, not just someone who occasionally had a cigar. After my deployment my wife and I came back to the states...and no more CCs. So I started hitting the on-line sites and buying tons of samplers, trying a little of everything to try and see what I liked and more importantly what I didn't. I did that for almost a year and then made my first box purchase, the Lot 23s.

So it's probably my most satisfying mainly for what it represented: my transition from an occasional smoker who paid little attention to what I was smoking to a full-blown cigar enthusiast.

I am actually thinking of hopping back into the hobby here soon. Gotta stop spending so much money on fishing first. Wonder what box(es) I should buy.

Really like this thread!!

Too hard to choose, I have a lot of great CC boxes that I haven't even touched yet that I'm waiting to crack open one is a 11' Trini Rob E (waiting a very long time to open them I'm thinking when my 3 years old daughter gets married) and actually just got a box of '13 HDM DC that I very excited to try might light one up this upcoming 4th of July!
