I asked a similar question last week and got some great answers; this time I'm going to change the focus and ask a slightly different question... What starter tobaccos do you recommend for a newbie? I started with a couple of aero's and have started to form some tastes and opinions but now I want to try some from the other side, the non-aeros. I don't know enough yet to know if I like Burelys, Cavendish, English, Periques, etc.etc. because I haven't tried them yet. I've read a lot of guys suggesting to start with a mild but full flavored tobacco, so here I am. My tastes so far are for aeros with a mild vanilla flavoring. I'm also not a huge cigar fan (not that they're same) but I have been known to enjoy the lighter, mild wrapped cigars so I'm not scared of the tobacco flavor or a little heavier nicotine but I do know that I'm not particularly fond of the "spicier" tobaccos. All that to say, I'm actually fairly open minded and willing to try anything. Thanks in advance!
