Any avid cigar smoker will agree that cigars vary widely in quality of experience and also in price. Generally, an expensive cigar will yield a better smoking experience while a cheap cigar will yield a poor smoking experience. This is not always the case however. From time to time you can pay a hefty price for a cigar that you do not enjoy at all, and conversely you can sometimes find a gem of a cigar for a bargain price.
Below is a list of the latter. These are the top five value cigars on the market. These cigars will all offer an excellent smoking experience for a price well below what you might expect to pay considering the quality.

Not exactly a bargain price, but this cigar is as close to perfect as you will find. This cigar would be in high demand at $15 per cigar. An amazing draw combined with wonderful flavor and a blend of expertly aged tobacco makes this cigar an unbelievable value at this price.
This could be the lowest priced cigar that has been rated at 92 by national cigar publications. The rating alone should be enough to let you know that experienced cigar smokers think this is a fantastic smoke.
The CAO gold line of cigars are known for their immaculate construction and are great cigars for a smoker looking to step up from a mild body to a medium body. The subtle spice and creamy vanilla flavor make this cigar an amazing value at under $6 per cigar.
Rocky Patel features 15 to 17 year aged long fillers in its line of sungrown cigars. That length of time and effort at a price of $5.50 per cigar simply can’t be beat.
This cigar from Hoyo De Monterrey has everything a cigar lover looks for. A medium body, long fillers, good construction, and a low price (under $2.50 per cigar). This cigar is the definition of value.
