So far I've mostly smoked cigars made with Connecticut shade wrappers. Today I received an order from Famous Smoke with different wrappers to try. I got a box of Oliva Serie G Toro with Cameroon wrappers. A bundle of Flor de Oliva 6x50 Maduro with Connecticut broadleaf wrappers. A pack of La GLoria Gilded Toro with Ecuador Sumatra wrappers and a pack of Oliva Baptiste Toro with Habano wrappers.

I'm looking forward to trying new tastes and continue on the road of learning cigars!

Good luck! The Serie G is a good smoke, and the La Gloria ain't to shabby either. Haven't tried the Baptiste and it has been a long time since I had a FdO, but they should give you a good run to see what kind of flavors you like.

Enjoy!

The Cameroon wrappers are tasty, a nice easy going smoke. Sumatra wrappers are some of my favorites, enjoy!!

If the rest of the box is anything like the first stick, Oliva Serie G aged Cameroon has earned a permanent place in my humidor.

A great cigar for sure.  I loved them when I first started out, but within a year, I started to become bored with them and began to seek out more flavorful cigars (Brazilian wrappers, broadleaf wrappers, etc).  I'm curious to see if your tastes evolve like mine did.  I still have 4 Oliva G's in my humidor that are over a year old, I just never reach for them anymore

As you work your way thru wrappers lets not forget the Brazilian wrappers Mata Fina and Arapiraca or the Mexican San Andres. These will be a big jump from the Conn shade but when you are ready, very tasty
