Padron madoro is by far my favorite cigar and ironically one of the less expensive cigars. They are not very pretty but very consistent. They are more of a full body cigar. I smoked some very expensice cigars but think the padrons have an amazing flavor not found in any other cigar.
Tatuaje brown label are incredible when you get a good one. They are expensive and very inconsistent but really good when you get a good one.
Don't mind the cigar snobs. Explore, experiment and have fun. You will eventually find your favorites and settle in.
I don't know if I would advise buying a sampler like the Po' Boy. Being new to cigars I would hate for you to get a dog rocket in that sampler and it turn you off completely. Don't forget about factory 2nds from the major manufacturers. They are cigars that did not make the cosmetic grade but the cigar is the same as the ones they sell for full price. It is a good cheaper option.
Happiness? A good cigar, a good meal, a good cigar and a good woman - or a bad woman; it depends on how much happiness you can handle. - George Burns
skip the butane and light it off with a wooden match, and only a wooden match
And John I agree with you. Factory seconds are a great way to get some real good cigars at a great price.

I like Onyx, Tabak Especial, Diablo and the Kahlua (not made any longer, but I still have some). For a good, all around general purpose cigar (mowing the lawn, shooting, off roading, etc.) sweet Factory 59 Throwouts and Cuban Reject Maduros are hard to beat for the price.
If ya'll are lookin for a cigar forum minus the snobs (not sure which one you're referring to), feel free to check out cigar-mafia. It's a great group of guys, many of whom I've actually met over the last few years. It's not huge like some of the forums out there, but there's plenty of information and good folks.
I've got poker in a few hours here...gotta pick out a few sticks for tonight yet methinks I agree on the Padron's, the '64 being my favorite from them as it's just about perfect every time.
Best one I ever had was a real Cuban while in the Desert.It was 05:00 hours.The F16's were taking off for the days missions and I was given this cigar by a Brit that I was Serving with.We watched the fighters take off,talked about home,and family enjoying a coffee and the cigars.The sun was just coming up and it was not hot yet.( well 90 was what I was calling not hot.)
im not sure about the others but the CAO Black was nice! im not ready to buy any boxes yet, i want to stick with samplers and singles till i know what i like thats why the 30 for $30 sampler sounds good to me, even if i dont like ten of them i will still have enjoyed the others.
Not Jeepless anymore!

My favorite, by far, for an awesome, but "budget" stogie, is a PUNCH rare corojo. Also love anything rolled by a. fuente.Hell, it's all good to me. I do enjoy cigars lit by butane or matches much better than a bic, etc. however.
The Jeep is a manly device. And a womanly device. An American device. It’s a fitting instrument to transport the free people of a free nation with the respect to which we are entitled and the dignity that we deserve. Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius
