Good Cheap Cigar

I am looking for a good tasting medium-full cigar that will be around the 4 dollar mark for every day smoking. One of my favs so far is the Punch Rare Corojo but wonder what everyone else would choose as a good casual smoke.

I figure if I can get the price under $4 each then i can enjoy and sample some of the finer stuff on the weekends.

What do you suggest?

Well, if you're talking medium-full, and you can stand something like that every day, then a fresh out of the box La Flor Dominicana 2000 could well fit the bill. I believe the #2's and #3's will probably provide the strongest flavor.

flor de oliva has some awsome smokes for cheap. and as weve been discussing in another thread, try the hunduran primeros. they are a buck a piece and taste wonderful. i know what your thinking, only a buck, yea right. but im serious, give them a try, some times they dont taste right till they are burned down about 1/2 inch or so, so if you try one, try the whole thing.

Flor de Oliva Corojo Bundle. Buy a bundle and they are just $2.00 each. If not that, defiantely try the Oliva O Classic or the Camacho Havana. Also, consider the Cigar.com Cuban label, Cameroon Label, or Blue Label. All three a solid and inexpensive. I would recomend just diving in at Cigar.com and picking up a few singles of each to try.

Ditto on the Flor de Oliva Corojos. GREAT stick for $2. Also, while checking out the C.com cigars, don't forget the Red Label. Mm mm good. (I prefer the Red to Cameroon, and Cuban Label above the others.)

Cigar.com cameroon label, in my book, is one of the best cigars you can get for under 3 dollars a stick. I smoke a couple of these a day. As I have said before, if you purchase these, you will not be disappointed.

Thanks for the input guys. This has helped me a great deal. Time to go shopping again.

I have tried the CC Cameroon and they are good but a little light. I have a red label and a cuban label waiting to try out. Didn't really care for the Blue label.

Maybe I will pick up a few of each of your suggestions and do a taste test

There are also threads here where that topic has been discussed and many more suggestions made. A search may help, or exploring past pages will also.

I didn't really care for the La Flors but I tried the Cusano CC and they were so good I bought a bundle. A little hard to find in my area but there was a little shop down the street from where I work that stocks them.

I agree the Punch Rare Corojo are awesome!
