Help Me Decide Future Purchases


Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

First off, love the new forum!!!! :P

I placed an order about a week ago....ordered the robusto sampler...the Por Larranaga lim Robusto 5 pk...and some others. Looking forward to the present to myself... :tantrum:

Ok...I'll admit, I have not experienced all the brands available, in the store....hence, the sampler pack. I would like some advice as to which brand/types I should try next...and which are must tries.

I tend to enjoy the more medium-bodied cigars....such as:

Dom El Rey del Mundo Robustos/Flor de Llanzas...Montecristos...Davidoff Special Rs......etc.

Thanks much all and cheers,

Jay

I posted this to another member here about a month ago, stating that someone new to Habanos needs to sample all the different marcas and sizes. While Smithy may not like the issue of a sampler with 10 different vitolas in it, the samplers that I recommend give a cigar smoker a months worth of excellent choices to experiment with and find out what they may like and enjoy and want to explore further.

As to a sampler, I typically suggest that you purchase 3 of each and let me explain why. Say after speaking with Lisa or Rob you decide upon a couple of Petit Coronas, a couple of Robustos, a couple of Campanas or Pyrimades, a couple of Minutos, and a couple of du Connaisseur sized cigars. This will give you 10 different cigars in a good mix of different sizes to sample.

Once you receive your sampler, all the cigars need to wait AT LEAST 30 DAYS before SMOKING, this is a valuable rule to follow for the rest of your cigar smoking life! The longer they rest, the better they will taste and smoke.

I suggest that you purchase 3 of each cigar that you choose. That way you will have 30 Habanos to sample after the 30 days rest. I also suggest that you get a small notebook and take notes about the cigars as you smoke them, what you like as well as what you do not enjoy, that way you will begin to determine what you your palate enjoys and can describe your likes to others for future suggestions. As you smoke one of the 3 cigars, you will find that you either like it or may want to try it or something close to it again. You have the 2nd cigar to smoke and the 3rd one to have while you are waiting for your next order to arrive or to share with a cigar buddy while you are smoking the 2nd one.

Here is my suggestion as to what to order for your first sampler, followed by the second sampler to be ordered 2 weeks after the first. That way, the second order is already resting longer than the 30 days when you finish smoking the 1st sampler!
