Default Cigar recommendations

My wife bought me a humidor for my birthday and I have no idea what to put in it. Iím not a cigar expert but have smoked a quite a few. My favorite was a Ashton Maduro. Any ideas about what I should buy that might be similar to the Ashton? I did a search but you guys are way over my head in cigar knowledge. Thanks for the feedback!!!

Only COHIBA, Macanudo, and Partagas for me the last 24 years.

I'll be watching this thread for new suggestions.

So, I’ve delved into and begun to greatly enjoy more boutique cigars. Crowned Heads, My Father, Black Label Trading Co, Nomad, Espinosa and La Polina are some of my favorite brands. Looks like you are in the Metroplex...check out Underground Cigars in Ft Worth or look them up online. Huge selection and vast amount of cigar knowledge.

There are so many questions to ask before I can make a recommendation. What do you drink while you smoke? Do you like spicy or sweet food? Do you like full flavor of light smoke? A ton more...

My favorite of all time is Partagas Series D #4 (PSD4) but I have friends who aren’t as big of fans. I also really like lonsdales and lancers because they are more of the leaf flavor than filler. Best thing is to order a bunch and try everything

Dr said I can’t smoke anymore after 3 throat surgeries at 33 so I’ll sell you all that I have left to fill up you humi

I haven’t had yours. But if you like a Maduro, you like something with some flavor. My number one go to cigar is a Man O War Ruination. Look it up on Cigar.com. My go to site is Cigarbid.com because I watch the prices, but the other site has a good reviewer following.

Also, there are so many things to learn about cigars. If you want to do it right, google proper seasoning of your humidor and how to keep them good. It’s worth it if ya want to do it right. Have fun, and PM if ya have any questions. I don’t know it all, but will help where I can.

I've been ordering these for the past 2 to 3 years now. Best smoke for the $$ I have found if you like Maduros. https://www.holts.com/samplers/monst...ster-deal.html

I just reordered since I'm down to my last 8 sticks

Cigarbid.com - search for other Maduros, or search by brand, or if you’re trying to find what’s your flavor, hit the sampler 5- or 10-packs. You’ll be hard pressed to find a cheaper way of both filling that humidor and exploring this new world. Have fun!

I personally like for my first choice, something from the Arturo Fuente don Carlos and opus x line, but I also like the judge, le bijou 1922, flor de las antillas from my father, and Ashton symmetry

Liga privada no. 9 is my number one favorite. Oliva V melanio is a great one
Ramon bueso genesis project is amazing and wonít break the bank
Always keep some perdomo champagne 10th anniversaries and noir on hand for the people that want a cigar but never smoke them. These wonít over power non smokers and the sticks really are good!

If you like the Liga the genesis project is a must try. Also the little brother of the Liga the undercrown is great. It was made because the owner lets the rollers have unlimited smokes while working and everyone was smoking Ligaís and messing with supply. Drew came up with the undercrown, Liga filler with a different wrapper. Cost less and always Available!

I am about to place an order with fox cigars out of nm or arizona. Good prices and they throw in a lot of extras or freebies. Look them up. I started out with the baccarats being my favorite but now im on a rocky patel kick, they are consistent
