Help me decide

Ok. So I'm trying to decide my next box purchase and I'm a bit stuck. I've been told by 3 people to just get the Undercrown, but I've never had it and not sure if I'd like it over the others. So which of the below should I get?

LP Undercrown
Room 101 Namakubi
Carlos Torano 1916 Cameroon
San Lotano Oval
Winston Churchill Spitfire
Cohiba Siglo I
Bolivar Royal Coronas
Ramon Allones Specially Selected
Illusione Cruzado

    Dont know what you will end up settling on brother, but Ive gotta recommend against buying a BOX of anything you havent tried.

    Sniper's absolutely correct.
    I would add that there's nothing wrong with any of those, but the price difference between a box of Undercrowns and a box of Bolivar RC's is fairly significant. Personally, If I was thinking about a box purchase, it would either be
    a) Something I've already tried, or
    b) pick up a few and smoke them first.

    Same here...for sure I will try something first. But come to think of it I have bought some boxes of things I haven't tried. It always worked out but was still a risk. But there are a LOT of reviews out there to get a good feel for what a stogie is all about.

    Actually, the prices for the boxes (except the Winston Churchill Spitfires) are about the same. Some ISOMs are surprisingly affordable if you buy it in boxes. As singles or part of a sampler, they're usually 15+ per stick.

    I say spitfire. Just because I know you like them and I personally enjoy them

    RASS, Boli RC, Siglo I, Winston Church... all great options IMO.
  • Would you be ordering the ISOMs from europe? If so, I'd go for RASS. The exchange rates are good these days so now might be a good time to buy.

    I'd probably go with the RASS, if I had to pick one.

    Instead of a box of just one of these, why not get two singles of each?

    You definately cannot go wrong with any of the Siglo I's, BRC's or the RASS...

    Thanks for all the input, guys. I'm itching to just go for an ISOM box purchase, but trying some of the new releases before buying anything makes more sense. BigT, I'll send you a pm. Thanks for the offer, bro.

    BRC or RASS for the $$ are great smokes...even SigII for just above that price range

    Yup...The RASS or any Siglo is a great buy!!
