Mild cigars occupy a timeless place in the humidor for many cigar lovers. Mild cigars are often the first cigars we smoke when we’re introduced to premium tobaccos. Even those who graduate to fuller bodied brands over time still appreciate the easygoing, approachable taste milder cigars offer. Like stronger cigars, milder smokes are ideal for certain times of the day or during special occasions. Maybe you want to smoke a cigar in the morning or you’re planning to knock the golf ball around on a hot, sunny day. Both are excellent opportunities to enjoy a mild cigar.

We’ve outlined the top 5 best mild cigar samplers available today. Rediscover your love of mild cigars or consider any of the following selections a safe bet when you want the perfect gift to impress an aficionado who prefers lighter cigars.

#1 - Ashton 5-Cigar Assortment

Taste five prestigious Dominican cigars from a world-renowned brand in the Ashton 5-Cigar Assortment. The original Ashton Classic and Ashton Cabinet are drafted from silky golden Connecticut Shade wrappers sown in the Connecticut River Valley. Toasted, creamy flavors of cashew, almond, and spices abound in what are considered the best mild cigars ever created. Ashton Aged Maduro reflects a luscious 92-rated profile with a succulent Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper while the 95-rated Ashton Heritage introduces a Cuban-seed wrapper grown in Ecuador. Since its debut in 1999, Ashton VSG has been the top-selling full-bodied Dominican blend in the world with its succulent profile of espresso, leather, and spice. Discover why this 5-cigar lineup is one of the best premium cigar samplers you can buy.
