Smoked a MAY12 RASS yesterday and it was bland and entirely one-dimensional. Draw and construction was perfect. Way too young to smoke, unfortunately.

Either that or the HK distributor screwed me, but the serial verified legit and everything else checked out... Too bad. I heard they were good to smoke young so I had high hopes.

rass are never good young they need 5 years

First time I've had these - MAY10 box. These are unreal! Incredibly smooth and creamy. I would recommend them over the Mag46 if you have the time as they are not that much more expensive.
Now I need to try the Mag48...

Any recommendations for cigars that smoke like Montecristo 4? Or is there anything else that could be recommended for a beginner smoker?

Hoyo Epi.#2, VR Famoso...Partagas Short. Quai d'Orsay coronas. Bolivar PC. Really try to sample everything, it will help in the long run in figuring out what you and your palate like the best.

Siglo II if you are willing to splurge. Very creamy, mild, excellent all-around smoke. It's the one that got me hooked.
I stopped smoking Monte 4s after I got tired of the inconsistencies and grassiness of young ones.

well, it can be. While not inhaled (as cigars use "black tobacco" as opposed to the blond tobacco of cigarettes, which are acidic and can be inhaled, which is very difficult to inhale), cigar smoke contains carcinogens, although they effect is largely felt in the mouth and throat. However, the cigar is a product of pure tobacco. The average cigarette, the poster child of bad health nowadays, contains only a small amount of tobacco--it is loaded with other chemicals, the number of and the types of which are harrowing, to make it more addictive/cheaper. Addiction is a multifaceted subject, but the amount naturally occurring in the limited tobacco present in small and not enough to cause addiction, especially considering how cigarettes, to the extend they have flavour, are incredible unpleasant otherwise. No studies have been done on occasional cigar smokers (those who smoke less than 1/day on average), and it is assumed that those individuals have limited risk, it is not the healthiest thing for you. I was talking to some doctors over cigars--the average cigar smoker is at little risk. That being said, those who inhale or smoke a significant amount are at a risk of cancers and other health problems in relation to their intake. In short, if you are smoking 10 cigars a day, you probably are at a higher risk. With that being said, the frequency of throat and oral cancers are rather low--less than 5% percent of the more than occasional total cigar smoking population will became ill, vs. some 50% of cigarette smokers for lung problems. On most of these cigar smokers, heart problems actually have a far higher occurrence. So again---if you smoke like a cigarette smoker, you are going to have problems. Ultimately, we all have our vices, we make our choices. Cigar smoking can kill; so can a heart attack triggered by a lifetime of unhealthy living or from excessive exercise.

Thank you. I hope to smoke once a month, or when I have a good meal. Hopefully that would help mitigate any danger.

Cohiba Siglo line are medium in strength. In fact I find them quite mild overall, but very flavorful and creamy. I believe they are designed to appeal to a wide consumer market, from rare smokers to aficionados alike, being a Cohiba and all.

Most CC's don't have the strength of an aged NC, like a Padron, in the first place so if you are expecting a nicotine kick you generally won't get that in a CC.
