What's the cheapest cigar in your himidor right now?...

All of mine! I'm smoking a Don Mateo Honduran right now and it's pretty decent for a $1.60 smoke. Nice white ash with an ever-so-slight hint of anus Nah, they're not that bad. Simp

I'm just guessing, but probably a $5 or so Montecristo.

Simp, do you really mean the least expense or the cheaperst. They aren't the same thing.

A hooker is cheap, but expensive.
A VW is cheap, but expensive.

But these $1.60 smokes that I bought yesterday are pretty good.

So, they're inexpensive, but not cheap. At least I knew what you meant...

Yeah, but I'm afraid that the thread is a bust already though.

Hookers and cars. I like the way this thread is evolving. No seriously, Cigar.com Cameroon Label. Definately inexpensive but not cheap

Right now the cheapest in my box is a Flor de Oliva and a Padron Fuma. Can't go wrong with those for the price! Also, I've got a cigar we're coming out with pretty soon. It's pretty good for a buck a pop. Be on the look out for a giveaway with that one, hopefully sooner than later!!

I'll second the Flor de Olivas...I have gone through several bundles of the torpedos. Huge bang for the buck and pretty consistent. For a few more bucks I have been enjoying some Puros Indios special aged pyramides, these have usually been great, but not as consistent as the Flor de Olivas. One cigar I really miss is the Fighting Cock "Flyboy" churchill. These were a very economical stick from the Phillipines. They had a unique, slightly salty, medium flavor. Unfortunately they were moved to Nicaragua and the blend changed to a non-descript mild flavor. Some time ago I came across a cigar oddly named "Double Hapiness", they recaptured the flavor of the Phillipine "Flyboy", but they too disappeared. When you find something inexpensive that you like...stock up!

I just recently bought a few Sancho Panza's ($3.50) and Indian Tabac's (Rocky Patel's original brand, also $3.50, while I wait for my RP Vintage 1990's to get a few months older). The Indians are better than I thought they would be, getting a bit hot at the end. I didn't light up the Sancho Panza's yet, but decided to investigate when Cigar Aficionado wrote them up as a great, inexpensive smoke, rated in the 90's.

I don't count the Don Elias torpedos that my brother bought very cheap from Thompson's, since I have choked down three and they haven't gotten any better. I think they were having a sub-$2 clearance on them.

Believe me, the letter T has been taken out of my cigar alphabet. On-line prices not competitive, the one order I allowed by phone arrived with doubled quantity and hiked-up price (sent back), and two local stores with better per-stick prices than T's by-the-box stick price.

What were those $1.60 cigars that were referenced before? I'll keep track of some bargains like this, in case I get a chance to try some.

I used to smoke lots of Flor de Olivas with the Habano 2000 wrapper. Unfortunately those have gone the way of the dodo. I think they're using that wrapper for more expensive cigars these days. Their "regular" smokes are great, too. The least expensive cigar in my box right now is a variety of the cigar.com house labels. I especially like the cameroon label.

As far as cheap vs. inexpensive goes, there are lots of cheap cigars I wouldn't put my hands on, but to find a nice inexpensive smoke is bliss.

The least expensive cigar in my humidor is a few house brand cigars from a cigar shop back home in TN. They tasted great at first, but they started tasting not so great with age.

Who says hookers are cheap? I agree with the Flor De Olivas. Solid cigar for the money. Long fill and nice flavor. The Olivas know how to make cigars.
