You know, when you look at the cheapest option on our drop-down menu, you might think that cigars under $10 are budget smokes, but nothing could be further from the truth. Cigars under $5, cigars under $2, cigars under $1? Now we’re getting into budget cigars. But cigars under $10 still include some of the very best cigars, tobaccos, and blends in the world, believe it or not.
The Arturo Fuente Hemingway Signature, Warped Serie Gran Reserva 1988 Robusto (Cigar Aficionado’s #3 Cigar of 2019), the Padrón Thousand Series 2000 Maduro, even the Cigar of the Year-Winning My Father Flor de Las Antillas Toro – all of them can be found at times for less than $10 a stick!
It’s amazing, and well worth it when you need a high-quality cigar but don’t want to go totally crazy on price with cigars that cost $20 or more per stick.
Cigars are funny like that, and so are our price categories. As you go up, you’ll find five packs and boxes. But here in cigars under $10, you’ll find premium cigars that stay in the single digits. Almost all of the leading brands have an offering that fits here. No matter what kind of cigar you want, you can probably find it.
No, really – it’s all here. Maduros, oscuros, habanos, Connecticuts… Churchills, torpedoes, robustos… flavored, natural… Nicaragua, Ecuador, the Dominican Republic… the only catch is that you’ll probably just be scoring one. But if you choose well, that’s probably enough.
A final thing to keep in mind before you go browsing the selections is that a higher price doesn’t always mean a better cigar. In fact, there are some brands out there that are just straight-up silly when it comes to pricing their most exquisite offerings (Gurkha comes to mind, but they’re definitely IN the silly-priced cigar game, so we’re sure they won’t take offense). Other companies, however, can top the charts and still make a cigar that’s accessible to most smokers that are into premium cigars. Each of the examples we listed above fits the bill. Those are fine smokes and an extraordinarily diverse collection of tobaccos, so don’t get too focused on maximizing spend to get excellent fumas. A really good cigar can be had right here in the under ten dollars category.
We’ll leave you to it, and see you in the clouds.
