I am relatively new to cigar smoking but I always tend to go for the fuller bodied cigars, especially anything maduro. I would like to broaden my horizons a little and was looking for some suggestions on some lighter bodied smokes so i don't have to go through smoking some crappers.

Thanks for the input,

There are some really excellent suggestions on this recent thread:

http://www.clubstogie.com/vb/showthread.php?t=5873

I particularly like Kamikaiguy's suggestion of the Carlos Toranos. Romeo and Juileta are another that is very mild, but flavorful. They aren't a regular of mine because I like a much more full bodied smoke.

Bauza is another very mild cigar you may like to try. I think they have a very crisp taste.

Since I'm new to this hobby, I'm usually smoking something mild. So far AVO is my favorite. I had an H Upman recently and a CAO Gold which I really liked. Nat Sherman, Don Diego, & Fonseca may be others to try although I didn't particularly like them.

If you're looking for something w/a little sweetness to it try a Baccarat. Cu Avana is nice too and the price is right. I have heard good things about The Griffins - I've got one of these in my humi now and can't wait to try it.

I really enjoy the Don Diego line when I am looking for a nice mild cigar!

Check out the regular Fuente line. Most Dominican blend cigars tend to be on the milder side. So, maybe experiment with some Dominicans. Some of the better/pricier ones are in the Davidoff line.

You're right, ChiTown, these ARE very nice suggestions also. H. Upmann is one of the first premium cigars I had smoked and I just LOVED it.

CAO is a great line altogether--mild and full bodied smokes. The Gold line is very mild.

Nice.

I recently got a box of RyJ Real robustos cause I like to mix in some nice milder smokes in the rotation. I have been very pleased. An excellent smoke.

Another nice mild smoke is Ashton, if you've got a little extra jingle in your pocket. :)

I, personally, like the RyJ Vintage III better than the Real robustos. Not to say the Reals are bad, because they aren't, but the Vintage just seems more "solid".

I know somebody already said this one but, Bauzas are mild. I bought a box of the Bauza Robustos and I've gone through 1/2 of them. I smoke them when I'm undecided. They don't leave a heavy taste, not too much nicotine, real smooth like coffee and cream.

What about Gispert domestics? CA rates them pretty high. I bought a box at auction for $1.85 each. My college age son and friends smoke them on visits when they are attempting to impress each other.

909 how is the draw on the bauzas ? Maybe I'll try them as they are not common stock in the stores around me. It will be fun to try somthing new.

I agree with a lot of the other suggestions made above. Let me add a few.

Montesio Maduro (by fuente), Romeo yJulietta vintage maduro, Drew estate natural White rabbitt, Romo y Julietta Resrva real, if $$$$ aren't an issue Padron 1964 anneversary issue (not the 1926).

Hope this helps,

Kid

I've been having a really good time smoking Cigar King's aged reserve. Smooth with a lot of flavor. I'm considering buying a box soon.

If cammies are your thing maybe look at MC Afrique or, like Matt R suggested, a Fuente (natural).

I have a hard time parting with the cash for a Davidoff, so Private Stock works for me.

Maybe a Flor de Oliva bundle?

Have fun,

Ahhhh!!!! Yes!!! Mild!!

I would have to say in the High end ($9.00 and up) Montecristo White is nice mild cigar as well as the regular Monte line and the Serie V line. Diamond Crown is real mild but really tasty as well. Cohiba is good

In the Mid end ($5.00 to $9.00) Macanudo Robust or Gold are good mild cigars. Romeo and Juliet Reserva Real is nice. Arturo Fuente Heminigway are great smokes.

In the Low End (under $5.00) Helix Maduro even though they are maduro they are mild. Carlos Torano Exodus Silver 1959. Arturo Fuente Curly Head. Some Fonseca are good in this range. I would say Baccarat but they have sugar infused in the wrapper and I typically don't like any type of flavor added.

That said however one of my favorite cigars uses a sweet vegetable glue sometimes that hold the cap on the cigar but the sweetness wears off after about 5 minutes. Hope this helps.
