Thrifty Thursday
 
I want to start this thread just for cigar fun and entertainment, to support this great community of friends that come together to discuss cigars. 4 other days already have their own topics, and we see and discover a lot of great cigars by sharing this way.
So let's see how thrifty (cheap) everyone is when they're not posting a $30 Padron or Opus X. Those cheapo's you might be embarrassed to to post after someone posts a boutique stick you've never heard of. Give a brief comedic description of it and how many shillings it set you back. Many times throughout the history of cigars people in hard times sought out the diamond in the rough, we might even find some here. Periodically I'll pick out a funny comment and send that person a cheapo sampler of smokes to enjoy. Have fun and always mind Puff community rules. Let's keep this around $3.50/stick and below category.

I'll start it off with a Carolina maduro torpedo for thrifty Thursday. Made of medium filler from trimmings of other smokes at Carolina Cigar company. Their not bad after drying out if they're fresh. Nice light/med earth, leather, and chocolate in the first 2/3 can quickly turn into barn fire and gramp's ashtray in the last third if they're too fresh and get too hot. I commonly find them at small PA B&Ms next to the Cuban Rejects for around 189 pence. Good for the price at proper RH.https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...4f6ee4caf9.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/201...6740ec3b55.jpg

How's this for thrifty? All of $1.20 worth of thrifty!

It's the F.X. Smith's Sons "Smith Breva" natural, a machine-made perfecto rolled with all US grown tobacco (CT broadleaf wrapper and PA broadleaf filler). @msmith1986 hisseff put me onto these (curse his soul). He claims no family relation, but a Smith is a Smith, and the clan just got $1.20 richer thanks to him!

Pros:
  • CHEAP
  • Costs $1.20
  • All US tobacco
  • Tightly rolled
  • No bands
  • Comes in boxes of 50
  • CHEAP
Cons:
  • CHEAP
  • Costs $1.20
  • All US tobacco
  • Tightly rolled
  • No bands
  • Comes in boxes of 50
  • CHEAP
Here's a photo to prove how far down I smoked this one...

Seriously, though, not the worst yard-gar I've ever smoked. Perfectly acceptable for keeping busy hands even busier... if you can get them to draw. They truly are waaaaay overfilled. Without my trusty Modus II Cigar Tool they'd be completely unsmokeable (had to get my product placement plug in too)...
