OH really, just one Cuban on your list ,? Who
are you kidding ? The whole list Is B.S..


David Savona May 17, 2013 3:16pm ET

This is a list based upon high scores plus low price--few Cubans meet the latter category.


Tyler Myroniuk — Edmonton, Alberta, Canada,  —  May 20, 2013 10:16pm ET

Great job this year on the list and the top 10 cigar videos for 2012!
I have to agree with Mr. Savona that the criteria for the "Best Bargain Cigars" is pretty clear.


Josh Clarke — Orillia, ON, Canada,  —  May 23, 2013 9:15pm ET

Great list, just picked up 5 of them and the two I have smoked so far have been very nice cigars. Although Guys comment is a little harsh, maybe a few more Cubans could have made the list. However, it seems like the whole list is based on cigars 6 dollars and under and my cuban purchases are usually 8 and up. 2 dollars can make a big difference in large boxes. Either way, great article, thank you!

In all fairness, Guy is from France and probably doesn't read english well. Either that, or he's just a troll.

Thank you for the list :-)

As neo-cigar smoker on a limited budget, thank you for the information!

Thank you all for reading, and we're happy to help. Helping cigar lovers find great smokes is what we're all about.


Patrick Hughes — Belton, Texas, United States,  —  August 16, 2013 4:31pm ET

Just loaded up on some of those Brick House Robustos....gret cigar for the money...great list.


EARL HAMMONS — GLASGOW, KENTUCKY, UNITED STATES,  —  October 7, 2013 2:29pm ET

Your advice on Uppmann 1844 Reserve Belicoso and Robusto was spot on; tried both and loved the flavor? Many thanks!


James Thompson — Cold Spring Harbor, New York, United States of America,  —  November 15, 2013 5:32pm ET

For the price, the Rock-A-Feller Connecticut Robusto is outstanding. The Maduro's are great too!
