We would all like to say we smoke nothing but the best, and for some on this board, that's the case. But for others like me, I try to stay around $1.50 a stick or so. What's your favorite cheap smoke?

I like CUSANO M1. Also, 5 Vegas and like today, I had a Cuban Sandwich.

What's your favorite for around a buck?

Cu-Avana Maduro, PUNCH rothschild, 5 Vegas... but the prices have been soaring on them lately especially after the release of the Gold series.

many turn their noses up at them, but I'm partial to Professor Silas Sumatras. Also for a milder gar, the Sherpas are good, especially the Mystics, but they are pricey for the "cheap gar" category, but not by much! Morro Castles aren't bad, Cu Avana Maduros are a nice daily type of smoke. I also reach for a Sacuba when I don't want a "romp 'em stomp 'em" gar. Hit the samplers for mid-range, and premium gars, and try some of the cheap boxes/bundles, but be aware that many of the cheap boxes and bundles are cheap for a reason. A Bad Frog is a Bad Frog! If you if you go up to $4.50 a stick, Hoyo de Monterrey Dark Sumatras are the only Hoyos I care for, but beware, they have better flavor, but are at least as strong as the infamous Joya de Nicaragua 1970 AntaƱo. Enjoy trying new things out! The dog rockets you get are good to give to your poker buddies who smoke half a gar and stub it out like a cigarette.

I like the Torano Dominican; but it needs accompaniment,like a cup of coffee loaded with irish cream and brandy.

Well for cheap my daily go to is the Tierra del Sol's that just came out by Predomo. Getting em for less than a buck. The robusto in reg. or mad and the Torpedo in maduro are very good smokes.

Padron Delicias , Leather Patch, Mistakes Torpedo, Punch Rothschilds are all good ones that are in my regular rotation ... And, CWFoster, it is good to see that I am not the only one who gets bugged when I see someone who smokes half a cigar and stub it out like a cigarette ... That irks me.

roly by rolando reyes sr. seconds for puros indios, available in colorado or maduro. the maduro is a little on the light shaded side but both are very good.

el credito by ernesto carillo (not the aprentice seconds). maduro's are excellent.

national brand maduro. they are on the mild side but an excellent smoke for the price.

I used to work for a guy in the late 70's named Charles Tandy. Some may know im as the Father of Radio Shack. He started the Tandy Leather Company and then bought RS cheap. He turned it into the megalith it is now, with over 9000 locations worldwide. I attended many meetings where he told us that he was a simple man and he bought used cars, mostly big Buicks, and smoked 30 cent cigars. I wish I knew which ones.

I think someone already listed it, but the Occidental Reserve Double Maduro. I just finished smoking one from a five pack I picked up at my local the other day for $18. Very good cigar for the money!

My NY local had a cigar called M&R. See if you can find them. Natural wrapper, medium-bodied with background spice. Overall flavors are subtle, but for some reason it's so enjoyable. I would have to smoke one again to give a better description. Anyway, see if you can find them.

Why do we need to tell everyone where to find the La Floridita's? Why cant we just keep them for ourselves?

Way to go Slim! I know all about sharing the love of the leaf...blah,blah,blah...but come on now!

By the way my input for this would have to be Occidental Sungrowns. 2.00 to 2.50 a stick. One of the top sungrowns around i promise ya.

I don't know where you are shopping, but my cigar store doesn't carry $1.50 sticks. At this point anything less than $4.00 is considered cheap. Oliva has some around $3.50 to $4.50 and Gran Habanos has some at $4.50. I would imagine for a $1.50 you might want to try Walgreens.

Good Choice Que,
IMHO Perdomo makes a great cigar, in "The Cigar" line. I also enjoy the freshrolled, especially when either have an extra year or so in the humi. Really, I can't think of a Perdomo I've tried, that I didn't like, though with so many different offerings, I'm sure that their is a possability that Nick makes a cigar I don't like. But, I haven't found it yet.
I also enjoy most of the Indian Tabac line, with a possible excepting of the natural classics, but then I favor maduros and cameroon wrappers. For a few cents more the Super Fuerte Maddies are great smokes, as always better with a year or better aging.

Chief, I know of a good 30 cent cigar. It is called Blue Ribbon. I don't know how they do it but not bad at all. Has a dipped tip. Corona size. Made and sold in the York County area, in PA.

It's nice to know that we can admit to smoking,(most of us anyway) cheap cigars from time to time. After a ton of beers and 3 cigars, that 4th kind of tastes like "smoke" to me anyway!!
