So tomorrow I turn 18, and I'm looking for a good cigar to celebrate with. Now, I'm new to the whole cigar culture, but hypotheticly, I might have dabbled with friends before I turned 18 , and might have enjoyed the draw and flavor of the A. Fuente I had, and enjoyed the aftertaste but not the light bodied smoke, and tight draw of the Cuesta Rey 898 I might have smoked . So any recomendations for someone relativly new to the cigar experience? I'm looking for something different, that I'll remember and enjoy for my first legal cigar.

I feel like a broken record sometimes, but I'll say VSG. My first cigar was a VSG Sorceror and I still rank them as my favorite cigar, hands down. Full bodied and full flavored, great draw nothing to dislike about these.

Here are a couple suggestions:

Ashton VSG cabinet- Lots of nicotine, but very complex flavor. Great cigar.

El Rey Del Mundo dark brown natural wrapper- I was surprised how good these were.


Edit: Even the guy above me recommended a VSG. Try one!!

My first cigar was a romeo y julieta, and I don't regret it at all.

Davidoff Special R, a mild bodied cigar, full of flavor, excellent draw and construction, pricy too.

Yes, I am late.

In any case, what did you smoked on your 18th b-day?

That is hard to argue. If cost factors in a Padron 2000 or 3000 while different still a good smoke. I also love the C.A.O camaroon, but I ramble.

I'll second the Ashton VSG's, they are a great intro to heavier cigars. Very well made, smooth, and with a nice 6-7pt showing on my personal strength scale.

Hey, he's turning 18, it'll make a man of him.

For a Medium bodied smoke, try a Arturo Fuente Hemingway Short Story. You can find these pretty much anywhere.

Other suggestions are a Oliva Serie O, and a Don Pepin Garcia Cuban Classic.

I didn't want to recommend anything too full bodied that will knock you on your ass.
