I need a good cigar

My buddy is getting married this weekend and I am the bestman. We've got the scotch taken care of, now I just need to get some cigars. I don't know a lot about them, really dont know the differences between flavors, things like that, however, I do know I have smoked some cheap cigars, and I sure as hell don't want to buy those.

What do you cigar afficianados suggest? I live near a really nice cigar shop, so selection shouldnt be an issue. Whats good, what do you guys like, I am thinking around a $7-10 cigar, I will be buying 5 of them. Thanks

i just had a Te Amo World Selection Honduran. It was good with Makers Mark. Should be about 4-5$.

your best bet would be to find a nice review site and go with what sounds good, there's a huge world of cigars out there.

anything made by Arturo Fuente (the labels say A. Fuente) is good and they have some starting in that price range.

Also, for even cheaper smokes that are great, try and of the Padron line. The lover end series are a 1000 series (hey make the 2000, 3000, 4000, etc just different sizes) but any of their Anniversary higher end sticks are great (1964 series, 1946 series etc).

best advice i can give is going into a cigar shop and telling the owner that you need help. they're friendly guys who know their stuff and get that all the time.

good luck and happy smoking.

i disagree, go talk to a real life person. Even though they may or may not like a certain cigar, any shop owner or worker shou8ld be able to explain the different tastes and flavor profiles to you, as well as have an unbiased opinion of what might fit your needs.

I would recommend a Romeo and Juliet, Montecristo, or an Arturo Fuente. When you go to the cigar shop make sure to ask for mild-medium ones. If you aren't a regular smoker I would stay away from anything heavy. Generally speaking the darker the color, the heavier the cigar. Make sure they give you some matches, and don't forget the cutter.

I'd much rather gather a consensus among a wide variety than trust one person who owns a cigar shop. It would be smart to do even a tiny bit of research than show up with 50$ and ask for 5 cigars.

I agree.Normally i like helix's or something along that line and hate flavored stuff but i just like those with a good glass of baker's or any good bourbon

X2 on the padrons. They are fantastic. I bought a 5 pack of the padron 2000's for $15 from tntcigars.com. Although they would probably be more expensive from a shop they are still a great cigar for cheap. Also I like CAO's a lot. I would recommend a CAO Cameroon or a CAO Brazilia

if the people you are getting them for dont normally smoke cigars, stick with the milds (usually a light colored wrapper). A. Fuente, CAO, Romeo e Julieta, and Don Diego are all good for 5-10. My personal favorite are Ashtons. The Ashton Cabinet is about a 15 dollar cigar though.

If you want a quality mild that will make an impression get Don Diego CEOs (Playboy Edition. Have a really cool wrapper too). About 7 bucks (lonsdale, churchhill, or corona), good smoke, not too strong goes well with a beer, scotch, bourbon, cognac, vodka, etc. (anything) without overpowering.
