Big List of Cigars - Good Newb Starter

    Two brands I'm surprised to not see at all on that list: Gurkha and Padilla. Perhaps I'm just a sucker for good marketing and pretty labels, but I've always thought of those as two brands that were firmly in the second tier, and that both of which could probably make at least one ultra-premium cigar that would be worthy of a spot on the list. Is that not the case?

    Thanks for the various lists. I think Gisperts makes a good smoke at fair price.

    If you like those, Bering makes a very comparable cigar, as does Plasencia. For that matter, Cu Avana and 5 Vegas Gold are also comparable in taste, strength, and price. Not the same, but similar. For that matter, check out Baccarat as well.

    Question: Any ideas on how to change my spare bedroom into a cigar paradise?
    Your biggest problem will be ventilation. The other stuff is, while not exactly easy, made more or less difficult by how you decide to ventilate that spare bedroom. Like every engineering problem, you have to make some decisions that are all trade offs. Your decisions in the beginning are the hard part.

    First trade off, for me, was air quality in the room. On the one hand you have maintaining a pristine atmosphere in the smoking room. On the other hand is temperature and humidity control. If you want clean air and little or no smell, it will be very expensive to keep temp and rh ideal. Clean air is free, but starts at whatever the weather is that day. If it is cold, it must be heated. If dry - you get the idea.

    I decided to go with making the entire room 65/65, which made a lot of ventilation expensive, so I went with filtration instead. There is HEPA, activated charcoal, and electrostatic removal of particulate and gaseous material. I went with all of them. I also required humidification to keep the room at 65%rh. Once that was done, I figured any old box would do. How little I knew. In the event, all my smokes in that room are in humidors anyway. It takes very little to keep them at proper humidity, but I am more comfortable with humidors. But with an entire room at 65 degrees and 65%rh, I had virtually unlimited storage. Using the third law of cigar collecting, which is "Your cigar inventory will expand to exceed the storage room available" a good six month orgy of cigar buying became necessary.
    If you think you can resist the third law, good luck!

    I like the natural wrappers, the Robustos and the Luchadores are my favorite sizes. Baccarats have a very satisfying aroma, aside from the taste, that I really enjoy. And the prices are hard to beat.

Just print this baby off or somethin and have at it. Smoke anything and everything. Whatever you can get your hands on. If it is a redundant post, feel free to delete it Paul. Hope this helps someone as it has helped me. By the way, its quite long but there are also many many more smokes out there. This is just a pretty solid list to start from. And also, if anybody on here has anything they wanna add tell me and I'll update it.

    A very impressive list to say the very least, but I personally would have to disagree that it is a good starter list for anyone just beginning to smoke handmades.

    Someone just beginning their career will be anxious to try as many different varieties as possible to develope a taste for the differences in flavors that various wrappers and fillers will produce and there just isn't a shortcut to smoking a lot cigars to develope this taste and at 10.00 to 15.00 dollars per stick this is going to be prohibitive to most new smokers. There are plenty of good cigars in the 1.50-3.00 range that would do just as well during the first few months of new smokers career.

    I can only speak from my own experiences, and I don't smoke large numbers of $10.00+ cigars, but when I first began smoking handmades my tastebuds were not developed to the point where I could really identify and appreciate the flavors that these ultra premiums had to offer.

    I do agree wholeheartedly that it would be a very good idea for the beginner to make a copy of your list, and as he becomes more experienced, buy a few when he finds them onsale. I can't speak for anyone else, and I may be a slow learner for that matter, but I am certain I wasted money on the ultra premium sticks early in my cigar smoking career, long before I had the experience to appreciate what they had to offer.

    Thanks for the list! Stopped into the local B&M smoke shop earlier this week, not much of a selection there, just placed my first online order consisting of 6 from the list.
