A while back I asked y'all to recommend cigars to me. I mentioned that I would prefer "mild/medium" sticks I believe. You made some wonderful recommendations, many of which i ordered and tried! A lot has transpired since then and I am once again seeking your advice. This time with no restrictions save for one: please nothing that is an outright nicotine bomb. I usually only have 1-3 sticks a week, which for me isn't often enough to handle a beastly stick without getting sick yet. But as far as country of origin, wrapper type, etc...go wild.

Your input will determine my next order, brethren! :)

I guess to be more specific, what is a stick or sticks that you think I absolutely HAVE to try?

I apologize in advance if I've already tried something you recommend...my first couple of orders were a really diverse selection of popular sticks aimed at trying to discover my palate (Oliva Serie V, Le Careme, R&J, Hemingway, etc, etc).

I second the Illusione Epernay, and would add the Caldwell "Long Live the King" Heater .

Did you try the maestro del tiempo yet? Also give the Southern Draw "rose of Sharon" a go. And honestly dude, from what you're telling us, it's probably time for you to dive into CC.
I have a Maestro del Tiempo in the 'tub right now. It just came in a couple weeks ago (and I only ordered a single), so I'm giving it a couple more before I smoke it. Never tried any Southern Draw...ill pick one up this order! Oh I agree about CC though...i still dream about the Siglo IV that I had years back. That was next level.

Sign up on small batch and watch their deals. You can try all sorts of fivers. My current favorites are Warped, Bespoke, Black label trading company, but the options are endless, they often have samplers so you can try several of a brand.

I have really fell in love with the Caldwell Midnight Express and The T. I've also found the Tabernacle Havana CT to be pretty excellent.

For old standards Drew Estate Under Crown is pretty popular. The Arturo Fuente Don Carlos and Hemingway Maduro are hard to beat classics. Also Perdomo Champagne line of cigars are pretty good and easy to find.

The Roma Craft Intemperance Whiskey Rebellion is also a great smoke.

Haven't had a Midnight Express in quite a while, very good cigar. The Foundation Tabernacle Havanna CT is excellent for sure.
