Friend of mine gave me a La Gloria Cubana 6x50 two tone and I'm kinda addicted again!! Last time I smoked was back in West Germany in 1987 so I'm out of touch in whats out there. I like something mild, sweet and a little smaller then the 6x50. Would like some recommendations on what to get to try and a reliable source to buy them. I live in the middle of nowhere and all I can find around here are swisher sweets!! Looking for some experts advice!!

Thanks!!

The purists will giggle and smirk and point their fingers, but try some Macanudos.

You might like them, at least to get re established.

Enjoy!

Since you live in the middle of nowhere I'm going to asume that a B&M (Brick & Mortar) cigar shop is not anywhere close to you.

I'd suggest looking for sampler packs at one of the big online retailers like:

Cigars International, Famous Smoke Shop, Atlantic Cigar

There are a ton of cigars out there these days compared to when you last were smoking.

Mild Sampler packs

Hope that helps

If you liked that one, you're going to love good cigars. IMO the champagne one is pretty rough.



I'm taking all recommendations at this point. Let me know your thoughts on mild ones.

Thanks!!

I don't know how the rest of this forum feels, but I think the Rocky Patel Edge Maduro is one of the best cigars I've had, especially for the price. Everytime I try another I find myself comparing it to the Rocky Patel.

Rockey Patel Edge Maduro
CAO MX2
Excalibur Dark Night
Jaime Garcia

These are some of my favorites, and not too expensive. I do tend to like Maduros......they just taste so good.
