    Best smokes under $1 dollar El Cheapo thread

    The country needs a good dollar cigar!


    Alright gentleman. We have done lists for 5, 3 and 2 dollars.

    Now I am going even lower: 1 dollar.

    What are the best smokes you have had for 1 dollar or less?

    I will start:

    La Finca Cazadores --surprisingly tasty after a very long rest period (toasted almonds, hints of pepper, cream, floral notes here and there).

    Oliveros Classico (ain't too shabby.... I will take Jerry's word that they will improve dramatically with some good rest).

    Ah ha.

    I have heard people talk a lot of crap about that stick....

    What is the flavor profile like? Is it most like any of the other Padillas?

    I will have to pull the trigger then....

    When I first got them I smoked some and they were mostly tasteless. I bought them to smoke at night after work in the winter, when I didn't want to waste a good cigar. Last winter they weren't even up to that humble task, but I tried one again this year and voila! they have a nice medium tobacco flavor with vegetal hints and a little nuttiness and toast. I believe the wrapper is Ct maybe Ecuador Ct. That adds the nutty taste. They are short filler so they'll get hot if you push them like I do, but who cares when it's 15 degrees out. Not a Padron or an Opus by any stretch of the imagination but a good workman's smoke.


    Edit: Well, I just looked on CI's site and they supposedly are wrapped in a dark Cuban seed Corojo wrapper. That is the lightest "dark" wrapper I have seen. Plus, I don't get half the flavors they describe them as having. So much for their description.

    Villiger Export Maduro (4 X 37) - Box of 50 is about $43. They don't need to stay in the humidor and they make for a darn fine quickie smoke that you don't mind tossing in a pinch but rarely every do because they are actually good. I smoke one of these on my ride to work in the morning and if I take it slow I get an easy 35 minutes out of it. Or I can smoke one on my lunch break in around 15 minutes. These aren't top grade cigars but they are extremely consistent machine mades. I am telling you....you can't go wrong.

    I am going to be ordering a box of the La Aurora Principes (also small and under $1) and doing a comparison soon. Keep an eye out for that in January.

    Used to be a place called CFO that had a Nic Blend #7 that were about 70 cents or so, and a pretty good smoke after resting for about a year.
    They shipped very wet, and made a good humidifier for that year.
    The site is still around, I think, but I think calling is best (and the name is Barb if I remember correctly).
    I still have a few left, about 2 years old, and they are smoking very well. I prefer Nic cigars, and you could tell these were rolled with good leaf. They just need a lot of rest.

    Might be worthwhile to see if they are still around.

    I went to the site and now I am intrigued. It is an expedition I am willing to take in a couple months so I will keep everyone posted on my findings.

    The maduro box pressed at 25 for $25 sounds pretty decent. I might end up trying them.

    Thats what I was thinking. I say smoke one when they arrive just as a measuring stick and see where they end up at 1, 2, and 5, years.
