hi all,

name's will, and im a student in london, but originally from northern ireland.

glad to be on, have been reading this forum for a couple of weeks now. Have only recently been taking a serious interest in cigars and am keen to learn!

any recommendations for a good beginners smoke?

Welcome mate! Nice of you to post.

I'm sure the lads will get you started. Something thin and mild to begin with me thinks. Romeo y Julieta No2/No3 or something like that.

Welcome aboard WN, i'd go with a montecristo no. 4 for a good start, good flavour while not too demanding due to its size

Or anything by Hoyo or Upmann, both are fairly mild smokes.

Hello there pal!!

I nice starter is something like a RyJ or an Upmann....both of which are quite easy to get hold of in some pubs and wine merchants. Cigars are v. expensive in the UK so if you're looking to buy a box and want to save some cash, PM me and I'll give you some ideas of where to source them 'off-shore' :tongue:

Welcome mate.

You've certainly found the right place to up your knowledge amd with stevie giving you tips on sourcing you wont go far wrong.
Although as a student and also living in London I'm amazed you can afford even a cafe creme!:smile:
By the way what are you studying?

hi Will, welcome aboard, you could get some single's from 1001...

JPL Petit cetros are a cheap ok smoke
RyJ Corenitas en Cedro are nice
the mille fleurs (thousand flowers) partagas or RyJ are a light easy smoke
Juan Lopez Panatela Superba (Discontinued but still in stock) are good also, my fav lunch time smoke at present

Along with those that others have suggested....:cowboyic9:

cheers for all the tips guys will definitely have to try some of those out and let you know how i get on!

I agree on the monte no.4 Kdot - was one of the cigars that got me interested in the first place!

Boss - im a 4th year med student, which would normally mean i can only afford to window shop for cigars, but luckily ive got some armed forces sponsorship so i can treat myself now and again - although my ladyfriend doesnt exactly approve of the expense or the smoke in general! but i think im on to a great thing here.

Would be great to hear about some reliable sources stevie - cant really run the risk of mr customs getting his slice as i am only a student so ive ordered a box of sticks off monte! read about him on here and looked up the website, now just waiting....
