This is a discussion on What's the worst cigar you've had? within the General Cigar Discussion forums, part of the The Cigar Lounges at Puff category; Interesting....very interesting. I have smoked these sticks, and I don't know them to be bad. I respect your opinions, though.
I gotta agree with Asmartbull on this one. If you're a noob try everything and make it a learning experience. A few have mentioned CCS and ill only say this. I like CCs, but have not smoked one I like over some NCs. I find them to be very one dimensional and for the most part poorly constructed. I feel the heat coming already!!!

After almost a year of smoking 1-2 a week I haven't really found any sticks that I didn't at least enjoy a little. Maybe my pallet isn't mature enough or maybe my tastes just aren't picky at all.
That being said I haven't really smoked any of the really horrible ones a lot of people talk about. I try to do a good bit of research on a stick before I pick it up.
Ok I take that back I had a RyJ rothchilde tubo the other day that I just didn't enjoy at all. Wasn't terrible but the taste just wasn't there for me.
Some of this has to do with your needs as well. If you smoke 5 cigars a day you are probably on the constant hunt for the best cheap cigar you can find which, of course, raises your overall exposure to some real dogs and gives you more incentive to find things to like about decent, bang- for- the- buck cigars. However, if you smoke just a few cigars a week, you're time and financial investment makes you less likely to even consider settling. Same thing applies to many things in life and there are merits to both approaches.
This is a very interesting thread, in that most of the cigars I see panned here, I've seen praised (at least in a relative sense, i.e., for a cheapie or whatever) elsewhere. In fact, many of them I happen to actually like. It just goes to show how diverse palates and opinions are, and indirectly, why there are so many makes and models of cigar.
So I have to wonder, getting back to the original question, in all the years you've been smoking and all the different brands you've tried, is that really the _worst_ cigar you've had? I mean I can see not liking certain ones; for example, Camachos are a bit harsh for my tastes, and the Alec Bradley American Classic gordo didn't exactly paint my wagon but I wouldn't call them the worst - they're just ones I wouldn't go digging to the bottom of the humi for.
Although I didn't start the thread, I was kind of hoping for some really good bad cigar stories.
Did someone go to every cigar forum and post this question? Going through this list I can honestly say you got what you deserved if you're smoking some of the schlock mentioned. I'll never understand why people pay $2 for a cigar and expect it to smoke like a Padron. A $2 cigar will always be a $2 cigar. Yes, it might be enjoyable, BUT IT'S A $2 CIGAR!! Someone wasn't sitting at the bench with $25 leaf thinking "I have all this extra $25 leaf....that's it, I'll make a $2 cigar with it."
I research everything before I smoke it, but every once in awhile one sneaks through that I don't like. There are alot of cigars I'll never smoke again, mostly because they just don't suit my taste.
This thread is about the worst cigar you have smoked. There were no monetary parameters established by the op. Anything is fair game regardless of cost.

I "gifted" them all to my brother. I knew I would get even eventually!
