Cheap cigars?

Can anyone recommend a reasonably good (or even decent) cigar that costs a dollar or less? This is a "settle-a-bet" question. Many thanks in advance. Lustra

Arturo Fuente Curly Heads might still be less than a dollar. You can try checking here but I wouldn't give it much hope.

Dutch Masters. Exactly a buck from my local convenience stores, and while we sure ain't talking Romeo Y Julieta here, they're OK.

Curly Heads are almost two bucks, though I sometimes see them for about $1.50. Does it have to be a certain size? Hand made? Something like Macanudo Ascots might be found for $10 for a tin of 10. It's a real cigar, just kinda small.

Are Garcia Vegas under a dollar?
In my experience, any cigar that costs less than a dollar is unsmokable. They tend to be sold at convenience stores for the exclusive purpose of being turned into blunts (opened and refilled with pot).

No, such a beat does not exist, at least in the US. I bet you can get a great cigar for a buck in Honduras.

What happens with "test" Matt? I see it on preview, but not on the regular thread view.

By the way, that is "beast" not "beat." Even a spell checker misses that blunder.

I searched for a link to the cheap cigars I know my old man smokes, and wouldn't you know it, I found a posting of his on a submariner forum, where he writes:

[tew's dad]
The cigar I smoke every day: "Mr B" by PALICIO (7.50 x 45) Maduro wrapper 20 for $9.95. (Machine made, but it keeps me from going broke...)
[/tew's dad]

I think they smell unpleasant, but he's been smoking them for years with no obvious ill effects.

You can get a bundle of cigars that would, in effect, cost around $1 each. When I go to New York city, I get a bundle of Cohiba Robusto imitations from JR cigars. I don't know exactly what's in 'em, but they taste pretty good. Here's a direct link to JR's site for the Robustos. $19.95 for 20, which makes them less than $1 each.

It was years ago, but my Dad used to be pretty happy with special deals he would get from Thompson Cigars

www.thompsoncigar.com/

They will often have some "overstock special" on one of their "own brand" handrolled cigars - for example, here is a $0.79 cent cigar. Of course, you gotta buy 100 of 'em

Thanks all, for these tips on visiting the Dark Side of cigar smoking.

Another vote for the JR Cohibas. Got a bundle based on the recc. here, and I think they're totally ace as an everyday cigar. Esp. for a buck per. Crazy cheap.

JR also appear to have lots of great deals in association with their purchases. Got 5 nice "JR Alternative Excalibur Prensados Maduros" free with my bundle (including free shipping on the freebie). Very tasty, those.
