:smoke:
The Zino Classic (maroon band) is a med blend and like all Davidoff cigars has a bit of a grassy background. It's an OK smoke, but not one of my favorites.

Ths Zino Platinum (silver band) is a bit milder, same grassy background flavor. Decent smoke.

Gurkha (Master Blend) med smoke. Good Cigar, burns well.
Gurkha (Ancient Warrior) Good smoke - liked the flavor
Gurkha (Warlord) - Good smoke, flavor, nice burn
Gurkha (Beauty) - Great smoke
Gurkha (Beast) - another great smoke

Davidoff's (White label) priced a bit high - sought after, mild smoke, but in my humble opinion - not worth the price tag

Montecristo White - good mild, smooth, delightful, elegant smoke... makes a great morning cigar.

Acids... sorry but I'd have to be doing acid to like them... (bet you can guess I'm not into "flavor infusion")... but Drew makes some nice stuff...

CAO MX2 - double maduro, but a bit bland for me... I like a bit more flavor from a maduro, but a good smoke, well constructed, burns well, I was just wanting a bit more flavor from it...

CAO America - decent, but everyone one that I've tried (that's a lot of 'em) left me with the feeling that it needed to rest for another 6-8 months... not big on flavor, but well constructed and an OK smoke

CAO Italia's - decent, robust (med-full) - they're on my Good list.
:mrcool:

Hope this helps...

famous-Smoke.com has a great deal on build your own 5-packs if you're wanting to try a cigar before buying a box or even a 5-pack of one kind.

acids- they got me into cigars, but after smoking 'regular' cigars for a 5 months, going back to one makes my stomach hurt.

CAO mx2- The one I had was a dud, but I have heard good things from Maduro lovers

CAO america- full bodied goodness

You might also want to look into anything Pepin (blue label is my favorite).

Montecristo white label is smooth as silk, great smoke and very tasty.

The bitterness of poor quality lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.

Go for the Davidoff. Most are medium, except for the millennium blend. It's full-bodied.

A little pricey, but worth it.

HOLLAR if you smell my smoke! :omg:

The Zino Scepter Series are decent, but the Crown Platinum Series are the bomb! Again, expensive, but awesome. I prefer the Davidoff over the Zino though....
