Best Cigars for Beginners

Casa Torano

Casa Torano cigars are premium hand rolled cigars that are made in Honduras by the Torano family. By its characteristics, they are cigars that are in the mild-to-medium range and are packed with flavors. A casa Torano may be mild enough for those who are new to cigar smoking, but it also comes with flavors that are complex enough even to please a lot of seasoned smokers. The filler tobacco in this cigar is a blend of two tobaccos - one that is South American and one that is Central. Then there's the wrapper tobacco, which is of Ecuadorian-Connecticut origins. A Casa Torano tastes smooth and rich, and it's pretty enjoyable until the cigar's last 2 inches.

Gran Habano Connecticut #1

This one is bodied mild-to-medium, but it leans mostly towards the upper end in the specified range. Guillermo Rico produces the Gran Habanos in Honduras. The particular Connecticut #1 blend is produced with a combination of filler originating from Nicaragua, and with wrappers that are Ecuadorian Connecticut Shade. Not only is it ideal for beginner cigar smokers but also for the kind of mainstream smokers who relish a cigar that is flavorful and not an explosion of power.
