Inexpensive I mean cheap cigars. Suffering under the Stimulus package here

I’m overwhelmed financially, there is no hope in this economy for me and I can’t even put away half the $457 bucks x2 a month I need to send my kids to college in 13 years.

I need cheaper ‘gars. I prefer Maduro but I will bend without a 2nd thought
I usually smoke a less expensive Arturo Fuente
A off-color Rocky Patel Maduro
And a less expensive Padron Maduro
I have smoked little ‘gars but frankly the bigger rings and full size get lots of comments by the female population and they love to ask for a smoke and stand near when I light one up. NOT a small consideration I’m trying to stay north of a 47 ring prefer a 50-52 ring. I can go short as I don’t usually have time to finish them at clubs etc.

So far I’m thinking about:
Flor De Olivia Gold on Holt’s is $42 for 20
Indian Tabac Super Fuerte Maduro Belicoso Maduro 5.5x52 25 for $54
Gispert Robusto Maduro 5x54 25 for $57
Holt's Factory Specials Toro 6x50 Maduro $168 (out of stock but I have enough stock for a month wait) Who actually makes them btw? I searched and didn’t figure it out for sure. I see on this site thx to google search not the C.A. search function that the Holt has very mixed draw reviews…


Any help?


I smoke Cigars in SF to avoid the smell of urine on the streets.

I've been smoking Perdomo Fresco robustos while doing work in the yard or garage.They're nothing special,but I've been enjoying them as a cheap yard gar.I have to take the bands off before lighting cos they're fugly!!
I also like the Padron Londres as a cheapie,but that might be a lil small for the female populations liking Wink

Good luck

I'm smoking Nica Libre Exclusivo a 5.5 x 50 box press maduro that is claimed to be a "Padron" clone. Once you get by that description... Roll Eyes You will realize that this is a reasonably good cigar. Check Cbid for 5 packs & boxes.

Pick up a Holt's catalog. Most of what they advertise are bundles, seconds, overruns and other assorted cheapies.

But avoid the "Closeouts" like the plague. There's always a good reason they're not making them anymore - I know this from experience.

I got some cigars I'll send you REALLY cheap...

On sites like cigarbid.com, you can often pick up first quality smokes at bundle prices. You just have to be patient.

I have smoked these and marveled at how good they are for such cheap smokes. Mine have been aged tho about 3 years now I'd guess...

Well I got most of those on the list in sample packs or what not... I hope to find a couple winners in there and stock up on them.

If i ordered the Holts 100 cigars (i got a 5 sample pack) with questionable record i could have been bummed for next 6 months. So i got 88 vs 100 cigars and paid about $20 more for them. But I can find out which ones work for me the best. I got free shipping on both.

Thanks to all...
Please do include your selections if you have any guys I can order about $100 more worth.

This is a screwy economy indeed, and I haven't been able to enjoy anything premium unless it's on display at the nearest cigar store for a tasting event. The best kind of affordable cigar with a premium taste to it are Quorums. Quorums are actually great cigars and really affordable too. My friends love them. Here's a link to the cigars.
