A: Thanks for your service to our country, around here we appreciate the hell out of guys like you. Java is a great cigar, and yes it is on the more expensive side. I would keep your eyes peeled for deals on these, they do happen every now and then. If you're looking for something similar and cheaper, I would recommend Tabak Especial. Awesome cigar with a great sweet coffee taste. If that's still a little too steep, look at Isla del Sol. Great bang-for-your-buck infused cigar. Both of these are made by the guy who makes Java (Drew Estate) and both have similar flavor profiles. But just take to heart they aren't exactly the same as Java. Of the two I would say Tabak Especial is the closest to Java.
