    If you like coffee and chocolate then I suggest a Drew Estate Java or Java Mint. They are well made sticks with good construction and great flavors throughout. They lean heavy on the coffee flavors with a good tobacco flavor to support it throughout. If you want something with a little more body then a Tabak Especial Red Eye is good as well for the coffee selection. All have great smelling smoke and flavors.

    Welcome tdl, wish I could make a suggestion but I don't smoke infused/flavored cigars.  All I can say is call ccom and talk to a rep, my rep is Sean Lamb.  Tell them what you're looking for.  They can probably set you up with a sampler and you can start playing.

    Welcome, when it comes to infused cigars Acid is by far the best. I would recommend a sampler like this to get you started:

    Hi @tdl and welcome to the forum!

    Ccom has a very good selection, and like Woodguarden pointed out, there are some kick butt samplers.

    If you can, pick out a cigar with a wrapper leaf from Cameroon. Also look for a mild-medium blend, and keep a notebook handy to jot your thoughts in.

    It was a tremendous help to me to write my tasting notes down.

    Congrats on your better half being your smoking buddy!
