Suggestions for branching out?

Puff_DougiePuff_Dougie Posts: 4,599 ✭✭✭✭✭
Been on this forum for a week now, and have already learned so much from you brothers. I'm so glad I stumbled onto the cigar.com site!

I've been a cigar enthusiast for a few years now, but haven't really begun to explore the depth of what's out there. My natural bent is toward maduros and more full bodied smokes. With the wealth of experience represented here, I'd love to have your suggestions for some sticks to try as I pursue my new year's resolution to broaden my cigar palate.

Over the past year, the ones I've most enjoyed have been Oliva Serie V, Liga Privada No. 9, and Kristoff Maduro.

What would you brothers suggest I put on my shopping list?

    Money can't buy happiness, but it can buy cigars and that's close enough.

    If you like the No. 9 from Liga, try one of the Undercrowns or Liga T52s if you can find them. Tatuaje Cojonu Tatuaje Miami, Padron 1964 natural or maduro, My Father #5 or #2, My Uzi weighs a ton (MUWAT), La Flor Dominicana (LFD) Oro Chisel. You could always do a trade with one of OGs to get a little sampling of stuff. Go to the newbie trading section. Tons guys willing to sponsor newbs in a trade all ya gotta do is ask. It's a great way to try different stuff.

    Thanks guys! Looks like some great suggestions! I keep seeing My Father on peoples' lists. It's not a brand I'd ever seen before. Good stuff?

    I'll have you know that I do have cigars that aren't cameroon.
    I'd be willing to bet 75% of my collection isn't cameroon.
    Ok, I'd bet 50% is not cameroon.
    Well, maybe 30% isn't cameroon.
    Alright, there is a lot of them that are cameroon, but I have others. LOL!

    Carlos Torrano 1959 Exodus is a really nice stick, but it is definitely not full bodied, but meets the maduro recommendation. I smoked my first Anejo recently and was completely blown away.

    I usually tell people to try the Oliva series or Padron. Can't go wrong with anything in their lines, and a pretty good value. Also the My Father is very solid line as well. PM me your address and I can give you some more recommendations

    My Father
    This plus the Camacho line, the Corojo Ltd, SLR and trip maddy should fill the bill

    Since you already prefer fuller-bodied cigars, I would definitely check out some LFD's and stuff from the Garcias (My Father, DPG, Tat, etc). If you are trying to branch out more, perhaps something from Kelner (AVO, Davidoff, Zino, etc). If you aren't politically/ethically opposed to the forbidden fruit from that "Island South of Miami", then I would definitely try some of them as well. And in all seriousness, if you want to do a legit trade, just let me know.
