My dad's birthday is tomorrow and since hes got everything else I could think of getting him, I decided to buy him a consumable (CIGARS!).
I don't smoke and know nothing about them, can anyone give me some reccomendations for some decent (or very nice) cigars?
He doesnt smoke them very often, and if I could remember what his "favorites" are I would get some, but I can't remember for the life of me.

For the kind of guy who doesn't smoke very often, go with a nice mild-med name he'll recognize. Romeo y Julieta has some nice sticks, maybe a reserve maduro? Of course, you could always go with Macanudos, but it's hard to give a decent reccomendation without knowing what he likes. Theres thousands to choose from and what one man hates, another treasures.....

Out of all the people I know who don't smoke often they all like ACID cigars. The Kuba Kuba Acid is probably the best.

thanks for the replies guys. I think he has smoked a few Romeo y Julietas before, maybe I will look for those.

this is becoming a weekly post, oh well. No harm.

Partagas Black
Arturo Fuente Hemmingway's
La Gloria Serie R #5 natural
Rocky Patel
Onyx

that should get you started. Dont get him just one brand, get him a bunch of good stuff he may have never tried.

btw: all those are pretty strong gars!

Arturo Fuente's are some of my fav. smokes.

anything from hoyo de monerrey--in an "english market selection wrapper"

punch

arturo fuente

macanudo makes a very mild smoke--ideal for beginners and the occasional smoker

avo

zino

la gloria cubana

i like the idea of an assortment---most cigar guys are always searching for "the holy grail" of cigars (i personally don't think it exists, but that's another thread for another day)

good selection. However I think the Zinos are overrated. They cost a ton too.

Thanks again ARFCOM, I got him 2 Macanudo "Sample packs" (3 different cigars to each pack), and he loved them (even smoked one right there, his 5th for the day-- I Guess he takes his birthday seriously)

For the occasional smoker who likes a cigar that's flavorful without being too strong, it's hard to go wrong with Padrons.
