I find my taste in cigars runs on the medium-full to full spectrum. Occasionally, however, I'll have someone visiting who is quite new to cigars, and I'd like to have some smooth and mild to share with them. Any recommendations on a cigar for newbies that they will enjoy? That will leave a good impression on the wonderful world of cigars?

I agree with Gary (Headfirst) on the AVO and RoMa Craft's and I personally like the Ashton Aged Maduro (rates out in the mild category but does run about 10 dollars a stick)...ENJOY THE JOURNEY!!!!!

Thanks for the input, geeks! I'll order some AVOs next chance I get. After all, the AVO XO Notturno was the cigar that kicked off my obsession 3+ years ago.

 Would agree on the EC so long as you tell them is has a spicy opening. I also the BA series is rich and creamy, not over powering  the HVC Vieja Cosecha No. 2 if you can find them  the dunbarton Umbagog also

I'm a big Macanudo Cafe smoker. Nice light smoke and is always a good BBQ smoke.

Infused cigars like ACID & CAO are great beginner smokes.

I'd go with Perdomo Fresco Natural - an affordable bundle cigar that's well constructed, mellow with a pleasant flavor and easy to smoke. Connecticut wrapper, Nicaragua filler.

I was actually looking at those. Thanks for the input Murph. I’ll pick some up.

the Undercrown Shade is a nice milder cigar as well


+1 on the Undercrown Shade, excellent cigar.

Perdomo Lot 23's can be had for $2.50, I prefer the natural over the maduro wrapper, very enjoyable cigar.

And Man O' War Puro Authentico Corona's can be had for $3.00, a very good cigar.

Proof that a good cigar doesn’t have to be an expensive cigar and that an expensive cigar isn’t necessarily a good cigar.

I just recently got into smoking, hence why I'm a newbie here. So far I'm a fan of CAO. Also just looking for something on the cheap-ish side to figure out what I like.

I agree about the macanudos...that is how I started...They are not overly expensive...check out 5 Vegas...anther good smoke for the cost. and really good for beginners. I try to have a bunch of the Gran Habano's available for newbies...Consider also some of the different and lighter Alec Bradley...The MAXX was one of my favorites starting out. Good maduro to start on...

if someone mentioned it i didn’t see it. 

 

 all good recommendations for sure. my advise would be to be cautious about buying a bunch of something you like now. i have given away a good bit of what i stocked up on in the early days bcs i found a good deal etc. tastes will change and the cigars may change as well. and not always for the better. 

 anyway good hunting!
