Hello Everyone,

I have been reading posts, watching and reading cigar reviews for quite a while now and thought it was about time to introduce myself! Complete cigar n00b! I have never smoked a cigar all my life and thought it was about time i started!

I've ordered a humidor and I'm in the process of making my first order of cigars and i just cant wait! I have made a list of cigar that i will order really soon, hopefully before the end of the week. My selection is stated below, some to smoke straight away and some to age in my humidor. Let me know what you think!

MONTECRISTO No. 2

MONTECRISTO No. 4

MONTECRISTO GRAND EDMUNDO LE 2010

BOLIVAR Royal Corona

BOLIVAR NO. 2 TUBOS

PARTAGAS SERIE D NO.4

PARTAGAS P2 TUBOS

H. UPMANN MAGNUM 48 LIMITED EDITION 2009

Hoyo de Monterrey Epicure No 2

COHIBA MADURO 5 SECRETOS

COHIBA MADURO 5 MAGICOS

COHIBA MADURO 5 GENIOS

RAMON ALLONES SMALL CLUB CORONAS

RAMON ALLONES SPECIALLY SELECTED

ROMEO Y JULIETA SHORT CHURCHILLS TUBOS

POR LARRANAGA PETIT CORONAS

PS I'm also thinking or ordering a Cohiba Behike and leave it in the humidor until i graduate in a few year! Hope to increase my knowledge of cigar as we go along.

Kind Regards!

Welcome! Thats a nice list you have there. Is that list singles or boxes? Since you never smoked a cigar before, i recommend getting those in singles and experiment with what you like before sinking money on a full box. Theres no local cigar shop around you to give you a head start in the mean time?

I agree with this...

Unless you have the funds... Then just get everything you can get your hands on. And get it from czar if you are sill looking for a trusted retailer...

Recommend get behike.

Hey BrandonW,

The list is singles and some 3packs, there is a a cigar ship in Ealing but its way overpriced, like everything else here! Going to hopefully place the order with Czar by Sunday i just cant wait to try my first one!

Cheers for the Advice

Rahman. welcome again. The BHK 54s and monte petit edmundos are good buys. I like bolovar belicosos finos too! Also try to get your hands on some gold medals for later(not a beginner's smoke).

I would start slow, figure out your likes and dislikes and once you have a flavor profile you like, start purchasing in larger quantities. Welcome and good look.

Being new to CCs, I would probably start with the Montecristo No. 4.
