List of the Cheapest Cigars

Our original list of the best cheap cigars was comprised of 10 cigars that cost less than $2 apiece when purchased by the box or 5-pack. However, times are changing and so are the prices of cigars.

Saint Luis Rey Rothchilde ($2.88)

Saint Luis Rey (SLR) cigars are made by Altadis in Honduras, with Honduran, Peruvian, and Nicaraguan filler tobaccos, and a Nicaraguan binder and wrapper. I do not think of these cigars as being cheap stogies and actually enjoyed my first SLR more than a high-priced Opus X. In fact, I liked my first one so much that I went back and purchased three boxes. These cigars are medium-to-full bodied and are recommended for more experienced smokers.

Sancho Panza Double Maduro Quixote ($2.59)

The Sancho Panza Double Maduro Quixote cigar is made by General Cigar in Honduras with Honduran, Nicaraguan and Dominican filler tobaccos, and a Connecticut broadleaf wrapper. This cigar has a very rich and full flavor without being overpowering. Although full flavored, I would consider this cigar to be medium-to-full in strength. The smoke was very smooth and somewhat sweet with a nice nutty taste. A great choice for more experienced cigar smokers.

Arganese CL3 Robusto ($2.50)

CL3 Robusto cigars are Dominican puros. The CL3 stands for Corojo Ligero times 3 since there is three times as much Ligero tobacco in these cigars compared to ​standard cigars. All that Ligero, and still priced less than $3 per stick!

Slow-Aged Lot 826 Toro ($2.60)

The Slow-Aged Lot 826 Toro cigar is made in Nicaragua by Tabacalera Perdomo. This cigar is made with a blend of Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and a Connecticut Broadleaf Maduro wrapper. The Lot 826 Maduro cigar is rich tasting and full of flavor, most appropriate for more seasoned cigar smokers.

Private Stock #2 ($3.04)

The PS cigar is made in the same Davidoff factory down in the Dominican Republic that produces some higher end cigars like Avo and Griffin. The wrapper is a natural Connecticut Shade, the binder is from Ecuador, and the filler is Dominican. This a mild-to-medium cigar and a good choice for beginners.

Gispert Corona ($2.74)

The Gispert Corona is a mild-to-medium bodied cigar made in Honduras. The wrapper is an Ecuadorian Connecticut Natural, the binder is Honduran and filler is a mix of Honduran and Nicaraguan tobacco. It has an earthy and woodsy flavor with hints of leather. An easy smoking cigar that is a great choice for beginners.

Helix Blue Tubular ($3.07)

Helix Blue Tubular cigars are made in Honduras by the General Cigar Company. This cigar contains Honduran, Brazilian, and Dominican filler tobaccos, and is made with a Mexican binder and a Connecticut shade wrapper. A mild cigar that is appropriate for beginners, and is comparable to more expensive smokes. I like to think of this cigar as the poor man's Macanudo.

of 10

Flor de Oliva Gold Toro ($2.35)

Flor de Oliva Gold cigars are made in Nicaragua with Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and Connecticut shade wrappers. These cigars are mild-to-medium and compare favorably to more expensive cigars made with similar tobaccos. However, I would recommend aging these cigars for a couple of months in a humidor before smoking. I have smoked quite a few of these cigars, and they would make an excellent choice for newer cigar smokers.

La Vieja Habana Cuban Corojo Chateau Corona ($2.30)

La Vieja Habana cigars are made by Drew Estate in Nicaragua. Their Cuban Corojo wrappers make them a bit spicy, but not over the top. The Corojo wrapper also offers a touch of sweetness which balances well with the spice. A nice medium bodied cigar and a decent value.

Mr. B Lonsdale Maduro ($1.25)

Mr. B Lonsdale Maduro cigars are handmade in Nicaragua with 100% tobacco and are mild-to-medium in flavor. These cigars are the least expensive on this list and are probably the best value for an everyday cigar smoker. They really mellow-out after aging in a humidor for a few months. A bit rustic in appearance with an uneven burn, but their taste and draw make them an excellent value for the frugal connoisseur.
