    In my experience, you just have to keep trying until you find one you like. When I first started trying maduros I noticed a ton of new flavors, maybe give some of those a shot? I'll recommend a Gurkha Black Dragon.
    Light 'em up.

    +1 w/ Kuzi on the LFD Airbender...great smoke. Also +1 w/ Western on the Gurkha Centurian...great smoke as well. To add to it...try a Don Lino Africa. Very tasty...good medium cigar.

    Cain Daytona is quite flavorful.

    im gonna try the Daytona tonight, I've had one in my humi, for a few months now, i got it as part of my cigar of the month sticks

    I would say La Herencia Cubana Oscuro Fuerte (LHCOF) is a very flavorful medium bodied stick (maybe medium-full). Very affordable too.

    I have a Daytona in the humi too - haven't had one yet - probably give it a little more time in the humi before I spark it. Let us know what you think about it.

    I would definitely consider the LHCOF and Puro Authentico to both be full bodied cigars. Maybe not as full as The Punisher, or Cain F, but in the grand scheme of cigars... they are definitely full bodied cigars, and full strength as well. Maybe not the best options for a new smoker.

    As for medium body, and tons of flavor, definitely recommend the Epernay!

    +1 on the LHCOF and MOW Puro Authentico! They are both very tasty sticks. From my experience with sharing the Puro Authentico with others, it can be a little strong for some. Another very flavorful, medium-full bodied stick that comes to mind is the Gurkha Triple Ligero!

    For lots of flavors I love the Oliva Serie G Maduro and La Aurora 107. The MOW Ruination is also very flavorful to me, but it's not exactly medium body, either.

    well i tried the cain daytona, i really liked the flavors, i cant really pick them apart yet, but i really enjoyed the cigar

    I still say LHCOF is a between medium and full (and closer to medium than full), and I'm admittedly a wuss!

    Not that this is necesarilly a mind-blower or anything, but still a very nice medium and extremely afordable stick is the Gran Habano Vintage. Very tasty - nice hints of cinnamon and oak with very little spice to it.
  • I got five of the Gran Habano Vintage 2002's in a sampler and have smoked three of them. I'll give the others to my neighbor. Flavor was ok, but I had so much trouble keeping them lit, and burning somewhat remotely even, that it wasn't worth the trouble.

    These are really vitola dependent - the robusto's are good, the churchills not
