My wife is in Paris right now and I’m gonna have her get me a box of Cubans. Any reccos on which one to get? Price is an issue. Shooting for $350...

I would recommend a box of Quai d’orsay 50’s. A 25 count box should be under $300. These are considered a “French” cigar so should hopefully be available. If not, the Montecristo #2 would be a good second choice.

If it were me....get a sampling of really good ones.....if your budget is what you say it is then have give your wife a list of cigars and tell her to get as many good ones as possible...better to have every good one than settle for decent ones. Cohiba Esplendido, Siglo IV or VI.....and whatever you like unless you aren't sure what you like then takes the fellas advice.

Thanks Cigary. The reason I’m going box is that I’m trying to make the errand as simple as possible, so she might actually do it. The packing part also will be totally dummy proof with a box as opposed to singles.

I think I’ve decided on Bolivar Belicoso Fino. Going for the full fullness. I hear they are superb.

Youi could have her check on prices on the two most recent French regionals, the Juan López Punto 55 and the Quai d'Orsay Capitolio. If one of those fit your budget it would be nice to have something out of the ordinary.
I checked out the links you provided. Very informative website. Thank you. It's amazing to see how few brands there actually are, past and present.
