This is a discussion on Big List of Cigars - Good Newb Starter within the General Cigar Discussion forums, part of the The Cigar Lounges at Puff category; Great list! It is a much better way to go about it than the random purchasing I have been making.
Adam, thanks for the list. Definitely helpful! This is probably an impossible question to answer, since everyone has their own personal tastes and preferences, but what are the top 5 or 10 must tries for a newbie (non-cuban)?
I've been doing a lot of research lately, but I need help narrowing the list down.
i must be a super n00b, 3 of those top 40 have made me sick...I need something super mild i guess. Torano Silver Exodus 1959 gave me one hell of a headache, then i tossed my cookies with a Pardon last week. not good...
A great list to get started and point people in the right direction. I've smoked a few different cigars previous to joining (a few of which are on the list) but here are a few that I thought should FOR SURE be on it:
1. Romeo y Julieta - 1875 Medallas de Oro Reserva Real
2. Romeo y Julieta - Medallas de Oro Vintage
3. Oliva - Serie V
4. A. Fuente - Gran Reserva
All are pretty easy and enjoyable smokes IMO. Help for other noobs that I have gone by (many may already know this info but just to state it in another helpful area) is just looking at the cigar color and sometimes smell.
Definitely recommend the A. Fuente - Gran Reserva to any noob. I had not had one until last night and it was a joy. Smooth taste, aroma, and finish. One of only a couple cigars I could stand to actually smell the smoke coming off the cigar while still on my lips.
