Best Bargain Cigars of 2011

G. Clay Whittaker
Posted: January 10, 2012

A good cigar doesn’t have to cost a fortune. Cigar smokers want as much value for their dollar as anyone else, and there are fine smokes out there that won’t break the budget.

So with that in mind, we assembled a list of every cigar rated by Cigar Aficionado and Cigar Insider in 2011 that scored 88 points or more with a suggested retail price of no more than $6 per cigar.

This year’s Best Buy list includes great smokes from such big names as Arturo Fuente, Oliva, Padrón, Punch, Rocky Patel and Romeo y Julieta as well as smaller brands.
