    beginner cigar eh?

    there are many cigars out there that i smoked as a beginner, but few of them are "beginner cigars"


    a cigar is what you make of it.
    i was just telling another member via PM that i like this forum the most because the people here are good and we wont laugh at you (unless you want us to). nobody on any forum should ever judge you by what you smoke. other forums you will find a bit of that. but here, we welcome differences because we all want to learn as much as we can. we cant do that if we all smoke the same cigars.

    on that note, if you lit it, and you liked it when you smoked it, then it is a good cigar.
    it does not matter what others think. only what you do. you are doing this for you, not for me, or this forum, or other forums. you are not into cigars to make others happy. you are into them to make you happy.

    Yeah, we wait till you get about 100 posts under your belt before we start to make fun of you.... (And not because of your taste in cigars...)

    Hey jreed, first of all welcome, next of all you've been a member since June and finally speak up.. Good to hear from you . Perdoma has a lot to offer, not my everyday cigar, but I have enjoyed more than a few of them.

    welcome jreed ....the most important thing is YOU enjoyed it ...thats all that matters ...

    Don't let anyone else's opinion of a cigar stop you from enjoying it!
    I personally dislike everything I've tried from Perdomo. However, my favorite brand is CAO and I have seen people who dislike everything they put out. Its all about individual taste.

    Well those guys covered the main part pretty well, so I'll stick to the cigar.

    I've had two of them and thought it was a pretty good cigar. I would not call it a beginner cigar though, first because I don't agree with the school of thought that a beginner can only appreciate a certain level of cigar, but also because I don't think most beginners would like this cigar, I know I wouldn't have liked a cigar that strong when I was first starting out.

    I think those people who refer to cigars in such a way just like to hear themselves talk and they really like to stroke their own egos, I just keep puffing and ignore them, hardly worth my time to do anything more.
  • I agree what kuzi16 said 100%, you smoke what you like. I've been smoking for 12 yrs and have spent alot of $ on cigars that were recommended by others on other forums that were so-called experts and found them to be not to my liking. Smoke what makes you happy, share your findings with others and let them make up their own minds and if they call you a beginner, remember they were once there themselves. Good smoking my friend.
