Hi, and welcome to another episode of Monday's with Mardo. I'm Gerard, and today I'm going to show you the top five cigars for beginners in 2021. But before I get going, I want you to click on that subscribe button. Click on the bell to be notified every single week of new episodes on Mondays with Mardo.

All right. If you're a beginner and you are into getting cigar smoking as something you want to do for your pastime, picking out the right cigar can be a hard thing to do, not knowing which cigar is going to be strong, which one's going to be mild, which one's going to be medium. You get the gist of it. Today, I have put together five cigars. Not only is it good for beginners, but also a cigar enthusiast would enjoy, as well, because these have more of a mild to medium strength, but it's full in body, meaning it's full in flavor.

Cigar Number 1

Number one, in no order whatsoever, we're going to talk about the Jake Wyatt Appendix II. Jake Wyatt is the manufacturer of this cigar. Appendix II is the name of the line. This is a Connecticut Shade wrapper. It has all Dominican filler. It is a very smooth, very silky, nice draw. Every draw that you take from this cigar is not going to be hot and spicy and overcrowding your flavor buds. It's going to be very pleasant. Very nice, cool draws, has very creamy flavors, orange spices in there. Fantastic cigar through and through. I believe the MSRP on a Toro 6 x 54 is around $11. So look for Jake Wyatt Appendix II.

Cigar Number 2

All right, next up is Cubo Claro by Dapper Cigars. This is made in Nicaragua. This is also an Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper on it. The filler is made in Nicaragua, so it's going to have a distinct flavor difference between this and something that comes from the Dominican Republic. It is a 6 x 50. These are also very pocket friendly when it comes to the price. Look for the Cubo Claro. Nice, mild cigar, very creamy aspects of it, and this is going to be Nicaraguan. Again, Dapper Cubo Claro, and this is the Toro size.

Cigar Number 3

All right, next I have Cavalier Medio. It is only three and a half inches, but it is a 58 ring gauge, so it does have a pretty good ring gauge to it. Therefore, it's going to be a very well-balanced cigar. It's going to have a lot of flavor. It's going to be packed with all sorts of goodness in the filler. This is made in Honduras. Therefore, it's going to be all Honduran filler and your wrapper is Habano. Their stamp is this little gold diamond right in front. It's Stay Gold, Smoke Gold. That is their motto. Look for these 3 1/2 x 58 ring gauge $9 price range. This is a fantastic cigar. Also, you don't have to dedicate a whole lot of time to it. But it's nice and it's very creamy, and I like these guys a lot.

Cigar Number 4

All right. Next up we have Roma Craft Intemperance EC. There are two different intemperances. The EC that I have in my hand is Ecuadorian Connecticut, and then there's the Intemperance BA, which is Brazilian Arapiraca. They are both in the same amount of strength. However, they're going to have distinct differences in flavor. The EC is going to be the lighter shade wrappers. It's going to be a little bit creamier. It's going to be a little bit sweeter. This is a 5 x 56 Intemperance EC by Roma Craft. It's made in Nicaragua. The majority of the filler and the binder is from Nicaragua. Now, this cigar is about $8 to $9, and they do offer in box of 24, five packs, and we do have them in singles on Definitely look for this cigar if you're a beginner. It's not going to crowd your palette with pepper and spice and turn you off. I highly recommend this, as well. Intemperance EC by Roma Craft.

Cigar Number 5

All right, we're going to finish off our list with a hit and this is called Atabey Mistico. It stands six inches. It's a little bit bigger than six inches in my eyes, but it's 6 x 56. These are pretty expensive cigars. They're $34, but it still serves the beginner's palette, also the enthusiast's palette. This is an ultra-premium tobacco coming out of Costa Rica with a Connecticut wrapper on it. These things are going with beautiful packaging. You can go to or you can Google Atabey Mistico. You can look at the images and see what kind of packaging it comes in. There's a beautiful humidor with piano hinges, on and on, ultra-premium stuff. Very good cigar, very smooth. If you want something that's like creme de la creme, the price point definitely will let you know that. It's $34.

But let me know in the comments what you'd like to smoke as a beginner, or when you were a beginner, what cigars you did smoke. I'd love to hear from you guys.
