Need helping buying a box.

MikeToddMikeTodd Posts: 974 ✭✭✭✭✭
So my brother and I have decided to together purchase a box of cigars for my dad. The problem is, we don't know where to start. We have always bought singles or 5 pack samplers for him.
He loves Perdomo's, Nubs, Deisel, Arturo Fuente, Oliva, etc.
I have never bought a box and don't know where to start, what prices are good or where to buy. We have a budget of around $50ish.
Any direction is appreciated.

    Fifty for a box is going to be tough.  Check the auction sites and you might get lucky.  

    Otherwise, consider a sampler box.  I recall seeing a nub sampler that also includes a cutter

    $50 each or total? huge difference there.

    Hey @MikeTodd

    That starter humi is damn hard to beat--only other thing you will need is a hygrometer and a humidification device.

    Good stix, damn good price. 

    Oh and you guys are good sons, BTW! I look fwd to the day my boys can share a stick with their pop

    You might check out the 10-count box deals.  Not as many sticks, but you would get the presentation appeal of a box of cigars.

    Curivari... Really good sticks and they come in boxes of 10 for around 50-60 bucks. I prefer the reserva limitada 1000 series.
