There is an "English market selection" sticker on boxes imported into UK and it is portrayed as higher quality. Also, some Swiss vendors have claimed to be receiving superior stock. It's all a crock of BS, made up by vendors/importers as selling arguments. You can get good or bad boxes, no matter where you buy. Some of the best boxes I've had were blind buys from grey market vendors and I've had plugged PSP sticks. Your best bet is to select the box yourself from a vendors inventory, if you can. If you can't, Rob can take some of the guesswork out of it for you, but that is still not a guarantee for a perfect cigar.
