What are the Best Cuban Cigars for Beginners?
Oliva Serie G Churchill Maduro – claimed to be the ultimate Cuban cigar for the beginner. It’s a very mild and light bodied cigar. Oliva’s originate from the Vuelta Arriba region and are priced very well. They sell for about $7 each or a box of 24 for $135
Montecristo No. 4 Double Corona Connecticut – ahhh yes… the Monte No 4. This is absolutely the most popular cigar in the world. And righteously so. It’s the king of cigars. These are the “Standard” by which all cigars are judged. The Monte No 4 is known for its spicy flavor and smooth draw. They sell for about $11 per stick. Well worth it too.
Hoyo de Monterrey Petit Robusto – these are very mild cigars made Habana style. They are a medium size cigar at 4.5 x 50. They have a super smooth draw and a sweet, creamy taste initially. Truly wonderful cigar. It sells for $4.10. You can’t go wrong with this stick.
There are many good Cuban cigars for the beginner. The critical part of selecting a Cuban cigar for the beginner is to look for a mild bodied cigar. The medium to full bodies will be too much for the beginner. Also stay away from the smaller cigars. They will be too strong.
