    Re: Very Good Cigars for $5 or Less

    Another one I forgot to add is the Ramon Bueso "Genesis The Project" from Cigars International. I think they go for about 400 pennies per stick. I believe they have a connecticut broadleaf wrapper. Very tasty medium to full cigars. They are not super strong but they are very flavorful and worth at least grabbing a sampler.

    Consuegra. I honestly can't tell I'm not smoking a Punch or Hoya de Monterrey. Great smokes at any price, but for $40/20 bundle its GAME ON!

    Re: Very Good Cigars for $5 or Less

    Yesterday, I smoked an excellent $3 cigar. I didn't expect much; however, it is very good. It is a La Gloria Cubana Rabito De Cochina. It is only available as a lancero. It has a pigtail cap and an uncut foot. It is medium strength with complex flavors from start to finish. It comes in a bundle of 3 in a coffin-type box. I got mine from Cigars International for about $10.

    Party Shorts, RA small club corona, LGC EL Principe... All those should set you back between 4-5 a stick.. Oh and they are CC.

It was the #1 cigar of the year in Cigar Aficionado (which is probably meaningless) but it's made by My Father Cigars which is an EXCELLENT company and the cigar is quite tasty. I treated myself to a box and I am enjoying the heck out of them (even though they are young...the box date is from less than 2 months ago). They will possibly be much better after resting for a year or so. I might save 5 or 10 for that purpose but it is difficult because I find myself reaching for them quite often
    Have to second the recommendation for the Antillas ... have smoked my fair share and given several as gifts. A great medium cigar! In my regular rotation. With my discount at the Squire, $5.60 a stick. Good call Qi!
    Sto lat!!!

    I am liking the Illusione Rothchildes. Singles are between $4-5 here in Houston.

    I also like those Illusione Rothchildes as a great sub-$5 'MSRP' cigar. There are countless great cigars under that price if you buy in any sort of quantity online.

    Re: Very Good Cigars for $5 or Less

    I prefer a smaller cigar, so your results may vary.....
    Everything I win off of CigarBid is $5 or less.
    i enjoy all the Man of War stuff by AJ Fernandez that they have in many different
    sizes and blends. And the Diesel line. Good full bodied stuff that stands up well to
    the higher proofed bourbons.

    In my eyes you can never beat a Padron for a budget stick. I also love Illusione Rothchildes though and Cult "Blood Moon Red."

Most of the time it seems to have to do with an imperfection or discoloration on the wrapper (or so it would seem). In particular the #9 Maduro (Rothchild) used to sell out as fast as places got them in because they were such a great bargain. They are still a great deal at $34.95 for a 25 cigar bundle and if you like the cigars I listed above, then this is a screaming bargain because you are getting cigars that cost far more than $5 for almost half of that per stick.

    My other go to sticks are Genuine Pre-Embargo Counterfeit Cuban Cigars and Mayorga Cigars. The GPCC are Ecuador Sumatra wrapped and quite tasty and a bit spicy and on the stronger side. The Mayorga, I stick with the Maduro and is a great cigar when I want a more rich earthy taste (coffee, earth leather), they are not as powerful as they once were, but definitely a smooth pleasurable cigar. Both of these cigars tend to get overlooked because of the price, and I think they probably would actually be more popular if they cost more... but I am not going to complain. I'll just keep smoking 'em and enjoying them without having to spend a fortune.

    And finally, Bolivar Cofradia. These are powerhouse, full flavor smokes. I left them to last, because they range in price from just under your $5.00 mark to just slightly over (but less than $6.00). I love these cigars for when I want power and spice. They do smooth out a bit of you let them sit in your humidor for some time (I still have some from around '03 when they were still called Bolivar Fuerte, and those are now smooth and tastey as the power has subsided a tad over the past 9 years).
    Second the Consuegra. I like the Dominicans better than the Hondurans. Been keeping them as my "Go-to" smoke for several years now. Understand that these are not made with the intention of being cheap, they just either fail the final inspection or are an over-run.
