mild, creamy & smooth

Looking for everyone's opinions of the best mild body creamy/smooth cigars with some sweetness to it (not like acid blondie sweet).

I am a newbie and the closest thing I can find is the Montecristo White Labels. I am sure there are better ones out there, I am looking for the seasoned smokers opinions on this.

I am not a big fan of peppery/spicy stogies. The full body stuff is a bit too strong for my taste right now.

Thanks !!

    Gurkha Park Avenue, 5 Vegas Gold, and Perdomo 10th Anniversary Champgne I think are excellent milds and have that nice creamy, nutty flavor that I really like. I'd say the Champagne is a little fuller bodied than the first two in my opinion, but it's still mild/medium at most in my limited opinion (I've only had 1, and I'm far from a seasoned veteran like lots of others on here). Purple Label is fantastic!

    Lastly I'd have to mention Verdadero Organic which is mild and creamy with that unique "raisin-y" sweetness that I really dig too.

    Best of all, these sticks are all very easy on the wallet!

    Welcome to the forum, man! If you're looking for mild, rich, and creamy, I'd suggest the 5 Vegas Gold or the Gurkha Turk. The Oliva Connecticut Reserve is really good as well.

    The Ashton Classic is a very smooth, nutty, creamy mild cigar with a mild-medium body. Tim likes the Fonseca too, he calls it the "everyday Ashton" but I've never had it. I'd trust him though, he's a good guy.

    I really like the Gurkha Turk, 5Vegas gold, CAO gold, and the Ccom Blue Label, and while they are good mild smokes, they don't have quite the same creamy, nutty character that the Ashton has. I wasn't as much of a fan of the Purple Label as I was of the Blue, which I felt had a slightly creamier, nuttier flavor profile than the other ones I mentioned.

    All these are good, but different prices:
    Cheap - Gurkha Park Avenue
    Mid-level - Romeo y Julieta Reserva Real / Montecristo White
    Expensive - Ashton / Davidoff

    Those are just off the top of my head.

    Avo Dominican Connecticut...They run 8 bucks and up but they are good !
  • WOW!

    Thanks for the warm welcome! This place is awesome! (I really liked the cigar porn thread).

    My friend got me into this hobby. I went off the deep end and picked up a 150ct humidor that I have all seasoned and ready to go. Now I am on the hunt to fill'er up with great smokes. I even went out and found a Tommy Bahama ashtray that was in a ashtray thread the other day (the one with the adjustable arms to help hold the cigar).

    I do like the easier on the wallet smokes, but money is not a big concern especially if there is excellent cigars to be picked up.

    I figured this would be a good thing to do. I needed to find time to relax and quiet my mind for a hour or so. What a better way to do it.....enjoy a nice cigar!

    Thanks everyone!

    Rocky Patel Conneticut is my favorite mild so far. It's an excellent smoke that is consitently impressive to even the toughest critics I smoke with personally. It's on the pricey side but if you can find it on sale or in a sampler, definately worth your time and money if you ar ein the mild for a nice, easy, mild smoke.

    I really enjoyed the 5 vegas gold alot as well. It's slightly blolder than the Conneticutt but I doubt it'll make even a completely inexperienced smoker sick. Lots of smoke, very tasty stuff. I have yet to see someone pissed off for lighting one of these up. I prefer the RP Conneticutt but only barely... I've enjoyed every 5 vegas i've had and this is no exception.

    If you are looking for a nice cheap smoke, I like Dominico by Carlos Torano. It's generally on sale for under $2 and it's Dominican! A nice, cheap, pleasurable smoke that lasts awhile and remains flavorful but easy to smoke throughout. I've bought two batches of 20 each of these and they've all been pretty consistent (except one.. I had burn and wrapper issues with ONE of the 20+ of these I've smoked myself. my friends all have loved this cigar.)

    I've been getting more into milder smokes recently, I'm as surprised as anyone to find that they have flavor too! Thanks for all the tips so far.

    I noticed the newish Suave y Cremoso sampler. The Cu-Avana(liked) and Macanudo(eh) are the only ones I've had in it.
