    My Father smoked 3 boxes of Judges Caves a week, they did the job. He died at 59 yo. Might want to consider topping off the smokes with a qt of Dewars and a case of Bud a nite! I'd donate that money to the crippled childrens hospital. Good Luck!

    A Lewinski, it's soak in a marinade and smells like fish. I understand it's real popular with democrates.

    Hoyo De Monterrey Excalibur #1 will make your nuts do wheelies up and down your leg for around $3.50 per Gar at JRCigars.com.

    Another comparable to this is 5 Vegas Gold #1 found on Cigarsinternational.com.

    I think Swisher Sweets are probably the healthiest cigars on the market and also one of the cheapest.

    There is no such thing as a good, cheap cigar. These days I only smoke true Cubans at about four a month....Cya

    Freud believed that the libido developed in individuals by changing its object, a process codified by the concept of sublimation. He argued that humans are born "polymorphously perverse", meaning that any number of objects could be a source of pleasure. He further argued that, as humans develop, they become fixated on different and specific objects through their stages of developmentā€”first in the oral stage (exemplified by an infant's pleasure in nursing), then in the anal stage (exemplified by a toddler's pleasure in evacuating his or her bowels), then in the phallic stage (exemplified by a grown man....)

    There are a lot of people on this forum who are still very much in the anal stage. Trust me.

    Can't beat a Montesino Diplomatico until you spend 50% more or more even than that.

    The huge Fuente Canones are good too. Almost any Fuente is good once you find which wrapper you like.

    I had some Excalibur that were fantastic, 11 bucks.

    This can get real crazy.

    I'm down to a couple times a year now, but still love them.

    Flor De Oliva is the best bang for the buck cigar I have run across, most sizes are less than $2 a stick when you buy by the bundle. I am also a big fan of Oliva's Cain line of cigars but they are considerably more expensive. Might have to have one now..........

    There are so many cheap good cigars out there. Don't believe anyone who says that cheap and good cannot exist cigars. I have had some seconds around the $3 mark which taste just as good as the next $13+ cigar.

    Saint Louis Rey

    Blue Label (Drew estates)

    5 Vegas

    Free Cuba

    Bahia Blue

    Cu'havana

    Pirates Gold

    Helix

    Puros Indios (I personally don't like them, but....)

    Indian Telbac

    The list goes on and on....Go to your local cigar smoke shop (not head shops) and ask for their seconds area. Most of the time seconds are discolored wrappers or maybe too veiny. Seconds are going to be your name brand cigars with out the wrapper. Our local shop carries second from Padron, Davidoff, Romeo Y Juliete, AVO, Ashton etc.

    Oh, I personally don't like JR or Mikes. I think their prices are not as competitive as Cigars International or Atlantic Cigars.
