Camacho Triple Maduro "Box"???

The SniperThe Sniper Posts: 3,910
Ordered a box of these in the robusto size, and when they arrived yesterday the box they came in was not a traditional cigar box but this chincy cardboard box like a box of ink pens would come in! Will post a pic tonight when I get home but this doesn't seem right... anyone else received a box of these like this? Seems very un-Camacho-like.

    I have only ever ordered the 6X60 on these and they come in a really really nice black and silver wood box...with nice hardware...
  • Sounds like the gurka guerrilla warfare type treatment where they get rid of the fancy packaging and sell the cigars for cheaper ( if you indeed get them cheaper). Ive never been able to afford a box so this is a shot in the dark. Maybe smoke one to tell if it's the real deal? Interested I seeing a pick of this either way.

    I'd like to see a pic as well. All of the boxes I've ever seen foe them have been VERY nice.

    lol, yeah I like these big guys. I've ordered 4 boxes thus far always a nice box. My wife actually uses one of the empty one's for her bracelets.

    WHAT?! The box is not a bonus! I think the Camacho Triple Maduro box is a great box and part of the reason I'd pick it up. Maybe they'll send you one if you e-mail them.
  • just got a box of the robustos in a couple days ago...was the typical high-quality black and silver camacho box.

    I've gone through about 10 boxes over the past few years in all the different vitolas, and they've all been the "regular" Camacho 3M box. Who did you order through? Sounds fishy.

    Yeah sounds really fishy, where or who did you order from? Assuming you can post it here.

    My first thought would be to ask how many cigars were in the "box"?

    I think usually they run 21 to a box so maybe if you got a round number, like 20 or 25 you really bought a bundle and not a box. Then that would actually be pretty nice packaging for a bundle. I don't know, just throwing out ideas. Hope you get it sorted out soon though.

    sounds like you got hosed buddy. Like someone just grabbed 20 sticks and threw them in a cheap box and sent it to you. I'd call and say WTF if the box means that much to you, but you did get the correct number of cigars? Just makes me wonder where the cigars really came from...

    OK folks, here's what I WAS talking about...

    Apparently the long hours at work are taking more of a toll on me than I realized - had a thought about noon today that I confirmed when I got home...

    Yeah... turns out I didnt get screwed on this "too good to be true" deal - Im just an overtired moron who was completely swerved by a "box within a box wrapped in the Saran Wrap looking stuff"! Yeah, I feel a lot like Homer Simpson right now. LOL Anyway, for your viewing enjoyment... first the ACTUAL BOX and not just the PACKAGING it comes in....

    ... and then the beauties themselves, pretty as you please!

    OK then so, in closing, my feelings of stupidity (and they are significant LOL) are tempered somewhat by the fact that I got this box for damned near $70 less than MSRP. And they're a nice, smaller size which I hope will keep my fingers from freezing off while Im smoking them this winter. :-)

    Heh, that's funny. Thats my favorite size. It's like a 2 hour smoke for me though. ymmv.

    Funny!

    "Doh!" Although the 11/18 is my absolute favorite vitola, the robusto works well in the colder weather.
  • KriegKrieg Posts: 5,092 ✭✭✭
    LOL! Love to robo, also a 2hr smoke for me. Glad you got it worked out ;)

    I am glad you got rid of the blonde hair. The triple maduro is always the cigar I select when I go to a B&M.

    That's funny. Can't hardly believe you didn't immediatley open the box to look at your new sticks. Must have just been in shock from seeing that cardboard box when you were expecting something really nice.
