1st Sticks for my now 21 year old son?

My oldest son just turned 21. He asked what stick I was going to give to try for his 1st.

I have some cigar.com Cameroon (My breakfast stick, only have one let.

Does anyone have any good suggestions on other good sticks for a first timer?

All I have left are medium to full bodied.

THX

My First Premium was a Cohiba Red Dot. Even though it's pricey to date it's one of my favorites.

I would make sure what ever stick I got him it would be rememorable and make sure it's a good churchhill that both of you guys can spend a good 90 minutes chatting, reflecting, and enjoying the smokes.

All the best,
Jackie

Cusano 18 Double Connecticut (mild-med to me)
But maybe your son could handle a med-full smoke?

It would be great to take him out for a nice steak or prime rib dinner for his birthday, and celebrate with your favorite med-full cigar and a drink. A great father and son bonding time.

Else, order todays Friday One-Day Deal (Gurkhas) and share it with him. Or give it as a b-day present.

I'd go with the Cusano 18 Paired Maduro.

Mild but not TOO mild yet has enough body and flavor to satisfy a "virgin" palate but not TOO strong so it won't turn him off of cigars forever.

Have to agree with DD, the paired maduro is a fine smoke for anyone.

By the way, the guy pictured in my Avatar is much better looking than I am, and I don't even have the eternal life advantage.

Frankenstein's monster was sooo totally misunderstood - all he wanted was a good friend, just like the rest of us.

I say give that son your Cohiba, there are plenty more where that came from, and they are a good mild smoke for a beginner.

Then....split that Ghurka package with him, that is a great package, just remember to try and let some of them rest for a while at least.

There you go brother, and welcome to the forum!!

I'm with DD that Cusano would be great first stick. I also think the 5 Vegas Gran Reserve would be a great first stick too.
