9 cheap cigars that are actually money

Let’s get one thing straight. With cheap cigars, there’s cheap in the sense of price, then there’s cheap in the sense of quality. This list is all about the former. 

It’s unfortunate, ‘cause with the stigma of premium hand rolled cigars, so many people automatically think they have to spend $10+ bucks a cigar for a great experience. That’s anything but true. 

So, whether you’re lounging in your favorite chair or getting some work done on the lawn, these 9 cheap cigars are easy on your wallet but are some of the best cigars for the price.
