    Can anyone tell me any other Cuban cigars to try out as a newbie. I like mild/medium taste

    Typical “newbie” suggestions are Trinidad Reyes, Hoyo Epicure No1 and No2, H Upmann Half Corona, Raphael Gonzalez Perla and probably a few more that escape me right now. All of these are good IMO.

    However I think the best way to find out roughly what you like and what you don’t is to pick a size you are comfortable with, preferable something that’s fairly common like a Robusto or Petit Corona, and then start trying different brands of cigars all similar sized.

    You should then get a better idea of what you like then use that information to further narrow down what to try next.

    Alex's suggestions are good, basically start with a mix of Robusto's & Petit Corona's & see which marca's you enjoy, then explore that brand more... Looking fwd to hearing about your discoveries.

    I’d also add don’t be afraid to try things that you hear or read that you shouldn’t smoke as a “newbie”. Smoke a Bolivar, smoke a Partagas, you’ll never know unless you try them. Plus even things you don’t like now are worth revisiting from time to time as tastes change.

    Raphael Gonzalez Petite Corona would be a great start.
    i usually / always strive to find cigars with at least a full medium body, but I tried a couple of the RGPC recently .... on the lighter side of medium and very flavoursome, well priced too.

    RG PC like these Mar 2017 you mean Mr Brown? By the time our new friend has PM privileges, I may be persuaded to crack the box & share a couple.

    Agreed. One of my first cubans was a lusi. Really got me hooked. Best advice is to try a bit of everything and dont buy a box until you know you really like it.
