Great list! Some of my fav's of course the Monte's could be a bit higher up...

Adam, Excellent list buddy! Gonna merge your list with TxMatt' Ultimate Whore list...What an extensive odyssey this is gonna be. :tu:tu:cb
 
This is a great list. I have checked off a few on it already. I am going to finish the list and possibly add some others. Such as under Cuban - Guantanamero. I had that when I was in Peru and really enjoyed it and it was very affordable.:D

wheres the $2 and under section, recently iv found that you do not need to spend allot on cigars. I bought a bunch of bundle cigars from mr bundles, about 40 for around 60 all churchills or toro's. previously i used to smoke mainly premium cigars and now i find I enjoy the flavor of select bundled cigars more and with price im sold (just takes a lil searching). somtimes you sacrifice some quality on construction but hey at 1-2 bux a stick thats a churchill or toro its awsome.
my 2 cents

Seems the Victor Sinclair should be added to the list, no? It's now rated top 3 in the under $6 category according to Top25 (actually it's rated in the Top25 overall even). I haven't had any yet but am looking fwd to receving some shortly. I heard they need to be aged in the humi for a few months.
First time I tried the VS I thought they were terrible, so I laid them down to rest. Forgot completely about them, as a matter of fact, then about a year later I was rearranging things and rediscovered them, and they were entirely different! That was actually my first experience with the magic of aging. Now when I can get a box on CBid for cheap (under a buck) I immediately shuck them and lay them down to sleep. I get that great box as an immediate dividend, and know that I have a supply of morning cigars waiting peacefully for me when I remember them again.

Thanks for a great list.

I saw a post in here that said newb must try list and thought that a good idea, but there wasn't a list in there. So, I have a list that everyone on here and I have come up with throughout the months of my newb questions. I'd like to share it for all the newbs that pop on as something to get them started. Just print this baby off or somethin and have at it. Smoke anything and everything. Whatever you can get your hands on. If it is a redundant post, feel free to delete it Paul. Hope this helps someone as it has helped me. By the way, its quite long but there are also many many more smokes out there. This is just a pretty solid list to start from. And also, if anybody on here has anything they wanna add tell me and I'll update it.

This list helps out tremendously. Just getting into the swing of things and I was wondering which ones to try. It is now bookmarked!

Thankyou for taking the time to do this!

Thank you for taking the time and posting this list!:D

I went in to a local B&M the other day with my list from "this" list and the owner got a good chuckle!:)

He said, "Oh no...Not a another cigar aficionado." I explained that I was newbie and looking for a few good cigars. He said, "Give me that da*n list"....
He suggested a few and I ended up purchasing a A. Fuente Cuban Sun Grown Belicoso 5 3/4 52....AVO Maduro Robusto 5/50...and a La Unica Cabinet #500 5.5/42(My own "doing" because I was running out of cash)...

After I had paid...He threw me a copy of Cigar Aficionado(magazine) and said, "Here, Read this."....I told him I'd be back.:)

Awesome list, thanks, very helpful for those pathetic newbs out there, hahaha - wait, oh right, that's me. I'd love to hear what people thought of the cigars on the list, too - what you liked about them, etc.

That list includes vitolas from almost every type and kind of cigar, from mild and creamy to strong and robust, and everything in between. Each one has been reviewed in many places, so who would know where to start? But maybe I could offer this to a someone new to cigars: Many experienced smokers have begun to favor very strong cigars, but I think many, if not most of us started with milder vitolas. From that list, from my experience, I would say that the Cusano 18 is probably the highest rated, very mild cigar. Now I am sure that statement could draw a very heated argument, with some smokers claiming that they taste like straw, but that would be my suggestion - try something mild but complex. After decades of smoking cigars, that is the type I still favor. For a little more oomph, from the top 25 list, try Cusano's Xclusivo, that is also pretty mild and smooth. Smoking should not be a contest, but a relaxing pastime. As you get more experienced, try every type and kind of cigar, since you never know where your taste will take until you get there. IMHO, natch.
Just my :2 :cb

Oh I hope it didn't sound like I wanted someone to go through the list and review each cigar... I just meant that if someone had a favorite on the list, I'd love to hear why they like it so much.

Well then, Moose, put me down liking the Cusano 18s, either Connecticut or Maduro, for a combination of mildness and complexity that I find very satisfying, and the Rocky Patel Vintage 92s for much the same reason, with a bit more oomph, like the Xclusivo.
