Best Buys of 2021
They say the best things in life are free. While that logic won’t work at your local cigar store, this list of bargain-priced cigars is the next best thing. We analyzed hundreds of ratings from our 2021 tasting database to see which smokes offer the biggest bang for your buck and found 20 cigars with suggested retail prices of $6 or less (before taxes) that scored 87 points or higher in our blind tastings. Each would make a great addition to anyone’s humidor.
While this list features plenty of smaller cigars such as coronas and petit coronas (as you might expect) there are larger sizes too, including toros, a robusto, a grande and even Churchills. No matter your preference, there’s a cigar here that can deliver big flavor without making your wallet too much lighter. —Thomas Pappalardo
