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.
