Before you throw down your hard-earned money on your first cigars, there are a few things you should consider.  Keep reading to find out exactly what they are in this guide that features cigar buying tips for beginners.

So, you decided to join the brotherhood.  The Brotherhood of the Leaf that is.  Well, congratulations, you made a great choice!  Now whether you decided to take up cigar smoking from a relative, friend, or because you want to model some of your favorite characters on the big screen, you are going to want to keep some things in mind when you shop for your cigars.  With that being said, let’s look at some cigar buying tips.

As a side note, if you’re an experienced smoker then you probably have no problem with buying your own cigars.  We all have to start somewhere, however, and that’s the main gist of this guide. 

Start mild

If you’ve ever read cigar reviews or even descriptions of certain cigars online, you may have seen things such as “this is not for beginners” or “for experienced smokers only.”  This often refers to stronger cigars in the full-bodied range.  Of course, you can give some stronger sticks a try when you’re first starting out if you find the temptation to be too much, but it’s generally a good idea to start out with milder cigars in the mild to medium-bodied range.

How are mild cigars beneficial to beginners?  They tend to “prep” your taste buds and allow you to experience the different flavors in cigars that you will encounter over the years.  As for some mild recommendations, some of the more popular brands with solid offerings for beginners are Macanudo and Montecristo. 

Purchase in person…IF you can

Here’s where a lot of opinions will differ when it comes to buying cigars, but if you are just starting out, making a trip to your local brick and mortar is your best bet.  Why?  You can really immerse yourself in the whole cigar buying experience this way.  You can walk into a humidor.  See all of the different selections in person.  Smell the cigars.  Touch them.  View how the formats differ.
