Box Size
« on: 08/11/2014 05:58 PM »
I have noticed many more manufacturers selling in the 10 count box which is nice.  Much easier to upgrade from a fiver instead of having to buy a 20 or 24 count box.

But I have been wondering lately,  why don't you ever see a box of various sizes.  I would be much more apt to buy a large box if they offered a 20 count box with 4 fivers of different vitolas.  Seems pretty simple,  but I am not sure I have ever seen.  Give you a few of all the sizes to fit different situations.

Just the sales guy in me I guess. ...

I agree, a sampler box would be more appealing some times

A sampler is something that I could go for.  Something from the manufacturer, perhaps a box of 20 LP#9 in different sizes so you can compare the different vitolas.  That would be cool.

exactly, instead of just one of each.

when visiting Sudbury I thought it was the perfect time to grab some ISOMs  ouch i fell for our Canadian BOTL
But I agree, a nice sampler of different vitolas would be awesome

great idea. I'm in the corona camp. I would rather smoke two or three cigars with great flavor than one big one most days. but I do enjoy a Churchill on the weekend nights as well.

Sometimes the cost is just way too much for the maker to be able to provide it. Best solution I have found is just a split of multiple boxes between you and another Geek.
