I have been into CC about a year & half, so kind of a newbie compared to the seasoned Vets here on FoH. I didn’t buy my first of CC until Jan of this year, and before you know it I had bought 4...lol. Like many on here have stated try the quarter boxes of 24:24 to sample and find what you like, then take the next step to buy a box of what you like. That is how I discovered and developed my preferred flavor preference through trial n error. Also, read as much as you can to learn more about quality marcas that are not as wildly known as the Cohiba and Montecristo. This forum has a wealth of info and the members are very helpful as you can see.
