    Are there any other cigar smokers out there on a budget? I usually smoke a Garcia y Vega English Corona because they're $2.50 each. I'd appreciate suggestions for good smokes costing $3 to $5, maybe a little more. Thanks, Bob

    Hmmm The shop I go to has non branded ones in their walk-in, for 3-5 dollars maybe your local shops have them too. I've gotten some of those, and have been happy. Try a couplecigar shops, maybe you'll find something you like.

    I'm partial to acid kuba kuba, but they are like 7-10...

    One of my favorites is a Rocky patel vintage 90 or 92... both are very good... and I think around 5-6 bucks each.

    When I'm feeling randy, I get a Perdomo Habano Corojo... it's the yumms

    I know the CEO of a Cigar company so I get a bundle of whatever I want they make for like $3 each they sell for like $10-15 normally.

    But if I go to a shop I normally get a Romeo y Julieta vintage 6 about $7, or a Montecristo #2 $9-13 or a Padron Champagne $ 5-8

    Nice choice with the Rocky Patel! My favorite too? I've obviously got to move south! Here in CT they are $8-$10 each for the 90s and 92s!!!:eek:

    Drew Estate makes both the Java and the Kahlua...both are fairly cheap and hold the honor of 'only flavored cigar worth smoking.' The Peterson Gran Reserva by Ashton is a good sub $7 smoke. Carlos Taranos Exodus 1959 is a good smoke for the price....i would head to a cigar shop near you and see if they carry any factory seconds (good way to get premium cigars for very little cost.)

    Ok my friends. I buy most of my cigars online. Cohiba, Gurkas, 5 vegas, Rocky patels and many more. Always good quality. Sites are Cigars International, Cigar store, and my fav. cigarbid.com. Just got done smoking a Trinidad.

    Thanks for the great suggestions everyone. And TacoNut, is sort of a re-post, but found a lot of info the other thread lacked. Thank Goodness For TW Members. You are a most valuable resource!

    A good inexpensive +/-$5 I really enjoy is an Arturo Fuente 8-5-8 great flavor and medium bodied. Not so large you spend 90 minutes smoking it either. Depending on where you order a box of 25 is +/-$100 shipped.

    They have both natural and maduro depending on your tastes.
