Does anybody have any suggestions for me? I like full, peppery cigars but don't know any Cubans of that flavor profile personally. I have been lucky enough to sample a few Cubans and I did love the Cohiba Esplendidos (even though that isn't exactly in that flavor profile). Also my favorite NC is the Tatuaje Avion if that helps. Thanks in advance for any help!

Seems to me like you are just starting out and not really sure what you like...I would suggest try as many as you can from splits, trades, purchases, samplers, etc.. and figure out what you like most. CCs tend to have very different characteristics than NCs so if you like full bodied, peppery NCs, you may like smooth, creamy and grassy, but still full flavoured CCs.

Try Partagas shorts. They have a certain spicy element to them and they are very full flavored for a Cuban.


Supercharged is currently under moderator censorship for no good reason.

I've been in a few trades and I have some in the humidor for a while before I break them out. I have a behike 52 from 2011 that I'm waiting until 2014 to smoke and I have some hoyos my dad brought me that I like. Right now I'm getting a punch punch, cohiba maduro magicos, BBF, and a partagas culebra that ill let sit in the humi for a bit. Thanks for the advice and ill keep it in mind when I trade in the future.

I must agree on the Party Shorts. Great little strong sticks full of flavor. Get a box and rest them. They are packed with tobacco and will often last me as long as a D4, which tend to usually have a more open draw.

I would also recommend the RASS and the Bolivar marca, some of which are very full, for CC's.

For medium and peppery/spicy, try the new R&J Petit Churchill. Nice!

It's one of my favorite cigars too but I wouldn't say they are spicy, rather mild and complex, creamy and floral.

Might be worth trying a RJ Short Churchill I've always found these to be spicey.
