not ready for cubans

Hi, Im new to this forum, I have been smoking cigars for about a year now and I love them. I recently got some cuban cohibas including the siglo VI and the 2004 limited edition. Ive somoked some good padrons, romeo y julietas, arturo fuentes among others but I dont know If Im ready to smoke those cubans yet. Im going to age them for at least one or two years so I dont plan on smoking them right away. Does anyone have any good recommendations on some cigars to prepare my palet for those cubans?

If you have enjoyed padrons, you will really enjoy the cubans. There isn't any non cuban cigar that will prepare you for enjoying a cuban cigar more. If they have 2-3 years on them they should be fine, but of course the longer you wait the better they usually get. Good luck and welcome to the forum.

I don't think I'd have the willpower to wait 1 or 2 years. I'm sure I'd cave before then. I can't help it, I'm weak.

Is the 2004 a huge mutha? It is probably a Sublime. If you are worried about diving into the world of cubans due to thier strength I would say to smoke the Siglo first as the Sublimes are alota cigar and have not had enough time to mellow out yet. Whatever you do i say ENJOY!!!

Cubans are spicy but are smoother than you would think.

Really? I think you need to bring some over Robert so I can check that out.

If I bring the smokes does that mean I can kick everyone in the mouth

My first cuban was an H upman Monarch and it kicked my butt. I didn't really know what I was doing back then and smoked it kind of fast and ended up spending about a half hour in the bathroom. Life's little leasons...

Allright, these food avatars are really getting confusing.

Best way to learn is to smoke it!
More important is neing 100% certain they are the real thing!
To often people get something "Other" and then feel Cubans are
to strong or taste funny & on -
If your 100% sure I'd smoke one there are plenty more fish in the sea.
I'd not do anything except smoke and relax - maybe sip water.
The cigars you describe are not power house cigars.
They both need to be smoked slowly (have 2 hours).
It will make the second one hard to wait for or easy to do
