Every good cigar company makes an affordable line of cigars that can be used in place of a more expensive one in a pinch. It’s a great cigar to slow down your consumption of higher-quality cigars, or a great cigar to give to that one friend we all have who seems to be incapable of finishing more than a third of a cigar. They can even make for a nice ‘yard ‘gar’. A good cigar to smoke while you’re working in the yard, with the understanding that you may accidentally drop the cigar into something, and you wouldn’t want to smoke it after having dropped the cigar in it.
Just because a cigar is affordable, though, does not mean that the cigar needs to be of poor quality. The Perdomo Lot 23 Natural Robusto is a good example of a cigar affordable enough that you don’t worry about wasting it, while being quality enough that you won’t regret lighting it to smoke. The tobacco for the Lot 23 Natural Robusto’s all come from Esteli, Nicaragua, and is well-aged and well-cared for. The cigar is a creamy cigar with tones of wood and nuts, and whether you buy it at a local cigar shop or a cigar shop online, you will find that the cigar is affordable enough that you won’t cry when your friend smokes only a few puffs before putting it out or if you drop it into the mud while working on your back yard.
