One of the first things that you will notice when you take up the hobby of cigars is that you will have numerous different choices to make and it can seem quite overwhelming. If you make the wrong purchase, you may immediately get a bad taste for cigars if you choose one that is overpowering and strong in the beginning. You will need some guidance on what types of cigars to choose and how to pick them. You will not want to be limited to just a few options in your cigar humidor, so by learning how to pick beginner cigars, you will have better luck doing your own shopping.
The best way to start your cigar hobby is to stock your cigar humidor with mild flavored options. It is true that you may find the mild options too uninteresting so that you want to move up to more flavorful options, but it is best to start mild and work your way up. If you already know you like more flavorful cigars, then consider choosing medium flavored options. You can always shop for and purchase robust cigars the longer you enjoy the hobby.
Of course, this means you will need to know where to look for mild cigars to add to your cigar humidor. If you do not know much about brands, the best idea is to know which countries offer the more mild cigar tobaccos and look for cigars from those countries. One good location would be to choose cigars from the Dominican Republic. These cigars will provide flavor without blandness, and they will make it easy for you to move up to something in the medium category.
When you are looking to fill your cigar humidor, you could approach this in a couple of ways. You could go out shopping and just see what looks good, but if you buy cigars based on their brands, then you may find that you are let down. Instead, you should shop for specific types of cigars. If you are too overwhelmed by all the options, another good choice is to choose a cigar sampler pack because it will give you a number of different flavors to try so you can determine what you like best.
As a beginner to the cigar hobby, you may have no idea where to begin other than knowing that you need a cigar humidor. However, if you choose options that are mild in flavor from the right locations, you will find it easy to get more involved with your cigar choices over time.A Beginner's Guide to Choosing Cigars by David Sabot
