Dredging up an old thread, but I'm agreeing with the Partagas 1845. I had smoked an occasional cigar, but the 1845 was one that I really noticed and thought "dang, this is good!"

Got hooked with a Nub back in 03 or it was something of that size but pretty certain it was a Nub.

Didn't start smoking and enjoying until 05, had my first CC. It was a Monte #2 (which was fake). Although it was fake, I did enjoy it and seeked out to find some authentic habanos. All down hill from there.

Allen mentioned Hoyo Epi #2, that actually was my 1st box I purchased in 05.

Pre-production Nub, give the guy a break. He knew someone on the inside.

I would have guessed Huy and Sam Leccia would be buds.

2003/2008... same difference.

I believe it was 98 Bolivar CJ or 99 Punch Petit Punch (cabinet).

The 15 dollar Fuentes, VSGs, Padrons , etc never truly got me "hooked"

As I've only been smoking cigars all but daily, and often multiple times per day, for about 15 years or so, I'll get back to you once I get hooked.

I have 2 answers. The first cigar that got me hooked was a box of Da Vinci Mona Lisa's my college roommate and I split. When I really got hooked and moved from a small desktop to a cooler is when I tried a Padron 64 anniversary maduro. That was the real hook.

I was a little kid, five, living in Havana, Cuba in 1956. In the dusk evening breeze the family would all sit out on the front porch to talk and have coffee after dinner. Small groups of men would be walking up and down the street with bowties hanging from open-necked guyaberas; many of them were smoking cigars. The smoke would drift up and over to the porch where I sat each each night and, to this day, I remember it as the sweetest and most enticing smell.

Whatever they were smoking had me hooked 60 years ago.

Mine was the Carlos Torano Exodus Silver. It was not my first cigar by a long shot, but it was the first one that I could distinguish any flavors besides tobacco from.
