Default What Was Your First Box Purchased?

Tyr and I started talking about this in Earl's thread so I thought I would start a new thread so we didn't hijack his. I did a search and did not find a thread like this but please let me know mods if this has been done before.

Anyways, what was your first box purchased? This does not include bundle but you can mention that as well if you wish when you say your first box purchase.

My first purchase was a box of Romeo Y Julieta Habana Reserve Coronas when they first came out (I believe? As the owner told me they were new) in 2008. I went with them because they were having a sale and they come 27 to a box and I was a poor highschool student haha.



What was yours?

Padilla Signature 1932 Robusto. Love these things! I hear, often, so shut up already, that the Pepin blend is better but these do it for me.

This is the first FULL box I ever got. It was back in 1998 & I still have three sticks from it. I think I paid $214 back then not sure. Back then I was smoking alot of 8-5-8's & these. Also had TONS of different singles that you dont see or can't find anymore.

This was my first box as well - purchased it about 4 years ago I guess.

I've purchased 2 more boxes of them since then. This one appears to be with me for the long haul

Ordered from a source in Asia, I thought I was getting one box, but as a noob, I somehow ordered twice. Ended up keeping both boxes.

Sancho Panza Belicossa. Think it would have been maybe 2000 or 2001 time frame. Can't remember the dates of the boxes. I'm thinking they were late 1990's. Not a single one of them left, sad to say!

A box of Chateau Fuente by Arturo Fuente back in the mid-late 90s. I still have one or two left at the bottom of my humidor.

I did a box split with a friend for some 5 Vegas Gold Churchills.

My first ever box buy for myself was Illusione 88s.
