When we think of the greatest cigars on the market, blends using Italian tobacco don’t exactly spring to mind. Still, CAO has managed to create a true masterpiece using filler leaves from the Benevenuto region of Italy. Rolled into a perfect Torpedo shape using a handsome Colorado Maduro wrapper, the Italia Gondola easily scored a 94 from Smoke Magazine, and sells for as low as $5.65 a stick.
From the filler to the binder to the wrapper, Punch’s Gran Puro Santa Rita uses nothing but the finest Honduran tobaccos. This dedication to quality shows in the cigar’s bold flavor and smooth draw. It boasts a 93 rating from Cigar Aficionado—making their top 10 list for 2016—and sells for as low as just $4.50 a stick.
Looking for something a little more slimmed down? Alec Bradley’s Coyol Petit Lancero delivers a complex flavor that ranges from earthy leather to nutmeg and cherry, all in a 41-ring gauge cigar. The Coyol Petit Lancero earned a 93 from Cigar Aficionado, and for as little as $6.55 a stick, you can add these beauties to your humidor.
The Fix is a cigar that is characterized by a one-of-a-kind blend of tobaccos from Colombia, Nicaragua, Mexico, and Honduras, all in a Costa Rican binder. This diverse combination is all draped in a gorgeous, dark brown Habano wrapper. The result is an outstanding cigar that earned a stunning 96 rating from Smoke Magazine. Now these smokes can be yours for as little as $6.00 per stick.
The Sancho Panza Dulcinea packs medium to full-bodied flavor into a perfect Torpedo shape. The Cuban-seed filler tobaccos strike a perfectly balanced flavor, and the light Connecticut wrapper makes the entire smoke even smoother. For as low as $5.12 a stick, you can enjoy one of these cigars, which earned a 93 rating from Cigar Aficionado.
Hopefully this list has given you a solid suggestion for your next cigar investment. The only thing better than top-notch cigars is getting those smokes at a discount. Best Cigar Prices is making sure that’s a reality for as many premium blends as possible.
