Would you guys rather buy boxes at a time less often, or fewer cigars more often?
Personally, I find experimentation to be the thing I enjoy most. So while I keep finding "favorites", the most I commit to is maybe a 5er because of not only limited space, but also the thrill of the hunt for new favorites. I enjoy buying 5-10 at a time of new ones that people recommend, and I'm slowly dipping my toe into boutique brands. To kinda bust me out of my comfort zone, I am also joining COTM clubs, that way the sticks they select are completely out of my control and will break me out of my comfort zone.

I'd say a mix. I buy boxes of my favorites. Then I buy 5-packs of stuff I don't smoke as often or new stuff or "flash" releases. Probably 1-2 fivers a month plus a CotM club. I also try and smoke some boxes faster than others so I don't have to replace everything at once xD

What COTM do you use?
Have been researching them to find a good one

I went with Nomad and Friends Club. It came down to that or CFed's CotM.
Cool, thanks.
I will look into them
I have been considering cfed as they seem to offer a nice selection, and i have enjoyed some samplers of theirs I have had

They are both very good. @Bazillions got me into them. I joined Smoke Inn COTM...the only reason I didn't do CFed or Nomad/EZ is because I keep buying like every other one of their new release 5 packs anyway and plan to keep doing so! :LOL:

Cool.
Appreciate the input.
Will look into the smoke inn one too.
Have never had anything by Nomad/EZ, so likely will go with someone else.

I really wish the Arturo Fuente/J.C. Newman Connoisseurs Club was still around.
My favorite nc marca and was a really great club.

I should probably start a separate thread for this for more opinions and so I'm not hijacking this thread

I very rarely buy cigars anymore unless I see something that I think I've gotta have. For 3-4 years before I retired, I stocked up somewhat and that's what I smoke. I don't keep up with the new releases except for watching the "Whatcha Smokin" thread. I did splurge and bought 2 boxes so far this year.

i buy if they are on sale and I really need them. Or if they are on sale and i don't really need them. Or if I really need them and i can't find them normally. If I can find them normally, and they aren't on sale, I might buy then too.
There is a lot of truth in that statement! :)

Usually 2 orders a month. I don’t smoke as often as I’d like. But usually run into a deal I can’t pass on and I don’t see some of them being available in the future or a stupid cheap deal I give to my brother in laws when they try to raid my stash.
