Default Your first box purchase?

Who out there remembers their first ever box/bundle purchase? It would interesting to see what everyone started with!

After a few months of buy singles from a local B&M I bought myself a box of Sanch Panza double Maduro quixotes. I still remember smoking my last one. It was heartbreaking lol

Monte 4's while visiting London probably 12 years ago, don't know what I paid but I'm guessing it was too much. I think I gave more of those away than I smoked, but I'm pretty sure I still have a couple singles buried somewhere

First box purchase was Macanudo Hyde Park back in 1993 (back when I thought keeping them in a ziplock bag in the refrigerator was the right thing to do )

I believe it was a box of Bauza Jaguars. That or Hoyo de Monterrey’s from the local JR’s store.

At one point Bauzas were excellent smokes, buttery and nutty.

Perdomo la tradicion Maduro robusto. I believe I paid around $85 on special at CI around 2003. I was amazed with that cigar. At that time I hadn’t seen or tasted anything like it. It felt like silk between my fingers.

Bruce, you reminded me that I split of bundle of Don Mateos with a coworker in the mid 90s and kept them in the refrigerator. No big deal, because they were amongst the worst cigars I've ever smoked right from the start.

Funny you bring up perdomo with that type of reaction. Because the first box I bought that ever really WOWED me. Was a box of Lot 23 maduros. Wish I had one right now. Can’t afford them now, but damn I loved them

I can't remember ever buying a full box of NC's I always just bought a hand full of whatever at a time. But I do know the first CC box I bought was Cuaba Divinos from the little LCDH in TJ before they closed it.
