Blue Label B2 'Cuban Wheels' Robusto (5.0"x52) Single

Deep discount on price, no discount on flavor!

A star is born. Hailing from the hallowed halls where Gran Habano and Blue Label - among others - call home, B2 is a gem that's ripe for the taking. Here's the deal: packaging is minimalist, the blend is all substance, and all costs were focused on making a deliciously flavorful handmade at a sharp price. Eyeball these plumpin' 30-count wheels lustily - the salivary glands start pumping and the wallet is safely out of harm's way. B2 is as low as $49.99 for a big-boy wheel of 30 cigars. That's bang for the buck if I've ever seen it.

Handcrafted in Gran Habano's Danli, Honduras factory, Blue Label's B2 employs a dark Nicaraguan-grown Habano leaf overtop a complex blend of aged Nicaraguan and Panamanian tobaccos. Medium to full-bodied, B2 is brimming with dense, hearty flavors and complexity. Notes of earth, coffee and leather coat the palate while sweet and peppery nuances round out the mix. Satisfying and delicious, B2 is a thing of beauty that answers the bell when you need Cadillac flavor at Yugo prices.


Casa de Garcia Churchill Connecticut (6.5"x50) Single

Delicious buck-a-stick handmades from the makers of Montecristo.

Altadis is responsible for crafting some of the most well-known and respected cigars on the market today, including Romeo y Julieta, Montecristo, and H. Upmann. But, in addition to these legendary brands, they also craft the highly-affordable Casa de Garcia brand. Made on the same rolling tables by the same top-notch rollers, just a heckova lot cheaper.

These affordable everyday treats come available in these tasty varieties:

Connecticut: Smooth, creamy nuances accompany a mellow body.


CI Fresh-Rolled Cuban Wheels Torpedo (6.5"x52) Single

It’s true, too many cooks do indeed spoil the soup. So we whipped up a batch solo, and this simmerin’ pot’s about to boil over. Consider: all long-filler, USA Connecticut-wrapped Torpedos and Churchills for just under $1.75 apiece. Straight from one of industry’s most renowned factories to your doorstep with just a quick stopover at CI in the middle. Call it factory fresh, call it farm to table, call it like it is: one damn good deal. High-quality, mellow to medium-bodied beauties loaded with rich n’ creamy flavors for pennies on the dollar. They’re good, that’s a promise. If they weren’t we’d put someone else’s name on ‘em. 


CI Knock-Offs - Compare to Romeo y Julieta Gigante (6.0"x60) Single

Where art thou Romeo?

Why part with your hard earned cash when you can grapple a nearly identical knock-off blend for a fraction of the price? Smooth, creamy, and enjoyable to the nub, these medium-bodied top-notch handmades deliver in every facet. You can thank me later.

Romeo y Julieta is a registered trademark of Altadis USA.


Cuban Classics Doble Capa Torpedo (6.2"x52) Single

Not a Cuban, but a classic

A blend that was once well known is now back and better than ever. Previously offered in boxes and demanding premium prices, these Cuban Classics disappeared for a while and were nearly forgotten. These new Cuban Classics Doble Capa are almost unrecognizable, offered up in wallet friendly bundles and in an attractive barber pole styled wrapper. 

The barber pole here utilizes a maduro and natural wrapper expertly to create a unique combo that's easy on the eyes. Inside you’ll find a collection of Nicaraguan tobaccos that will drive your palate wild. You can expect a medium-bodied flavor profile that boasts notes of cocoa, coffee, and cream, with a hint of spice. Hop on this bargain bus and don’t look back.

Note: These cigars will have a pointed head, not round like the picture shown.


Cuban Classics Maduro Toro (6.0"x50) Single

A real "Cuban Classic"!

These fantastic maduros harken back to the golden days of Havana, Cuba, and are crafted with the same meticulous eye on quality control and consistency. With the maduro option, the Cuban Classic line adds an affordable option for those who prefer their cigars a bit richer. You’ll find earth, salty leather, but mostly, a deep cocoa and black pepper note that'll keep the palate entertained right to the end. There may be better maduros out there, but dollar for dollar, Cuban Classic Maduro is a must-try.


Dark Shark Robusto (5.0"x50) Single

The Shark is back!

This top-selling handmade ain’t the prettiest girl at the prom but it may be the least worst option in this price range - especially if you like maduros. That’s ’cause this medium number really ain’t half bad. Crafted with a dark Broadleaf maduro wrapper and an all long-filler blend of Cuban-seed tobaccos, Dark Shark is indeed a lot more premium than it appears at a glance.

And that’s probably why I’ve had such a damn hard time keeping these things in stock. Expect rich, mellow maduro flavor for as low as $29.99 per mazo of 20. I’m done with the sales pitch....Dark Shark sells itself. Buy it or don’t - doesn’t matter to me - I’ve got a long list of guys waiting for their usual 5-10 mazos per month.


Dominican Cream Robusto (5.0"x52) Single

So creamy, so good.

We field constant inquiries from manufacturers asking us to carry their cigars, invitations to make cigars at every hole-in-the-wall factory in Central America with ‘best price,’ and we burn through sample after sample. People think it’s fun, but lighting up thousands of handmades that are glorified mulch ain’t fun at all. But now and then, one blend stands out. Here is one diamond in the rough. Dominican Cream boasts that famed Dominican profile: mellow character, subtle cedar, sweet cream, and a dash of spice. When you weigh the quality of these ‘Cuban sandwich’ treats against the price we managed to wrangle them at, there’ll no doubt be cheers from sea to shining sea.

Note: These cigars have a very slightly sweetened cap. The slightest we've ever seen!


Don Rafael Natural #67 (Churchill) (7.5"x50) Single

Don Rafael cigars are premium mellow and smooth, built for Everyman’s everyday enjoyment at bargain basement prices.

Don Rafael cigars, rolled by Jose Dominguez in the same boutique cigar factory that makes Victor Sinclair, is a well-constructed, mellow to medium-bodied blend from the Dominican Republic. Don Rafael is comprised of a Dominican binder, all-Dominican long-filler leaves, and a Connecticut Shade wrapper grown in Ecuador.

SMOKE magazine says: "Four out of five panelists agree: this is a cigar for everyone... subtle tones of spice and wood, bequeathed to the palate by the Connecticut broadleaf wrapper, make the Don Rafael an excellent all-day smoke for the novice and an excellent morning smoke. This is a perfect accompaniment to a glass of dry champagne or a mimosa, after you’ve finished off a heaping plate of huevos rancheros!"


Fields of Gold Corona Connecticut (6.0"x44) Single

The impossible 80-cent cigar!

Hell has frozen over. Pigs are flying. Beer is now available in all water fountains. So go ahead and buy that lottery ticket, because the impossible is now a reality. There's no other rational explanation for Fields of Gold. With 3 different wrappers to choose from, at less than a buck a stick, and yet made with care...yes indeed, this is one cigar you need to give the hairy eyeball, STAT. These sticks are perfect for just hanging around, or for handing out to all your friends. For just 80-cents apiece, you can afford two, buddy! That's right, just 80-cents apiece. Get in on the action now, because this deal is crazier than a tank of sharks with laser beams attached to their heads.

Connecticut – This extraordinarily mellow, smooth, and creamy Connecticut is as easy-going as they come.


Gurkha Black Ops Maduro Robusto (5.0"x52) Single

The best of the best, sir!

If you’re eyeballing these wondering if you should pull the trigger, let me ease thy mind a bit. For the price, it don’t get a whole lot better. Perfectly fermented wrappers, well-aged fillers, and packaging that’s as unique as they come, all awaits for south of 50 bucks. If I were you I’d jump on these ASAP, because the compliments from around the office have already started pouring in.

Black Ops Maduro is an uber-dark specimen that's brimming with dense, rich flavors. This maduro-wrapped blend comes chock full of Cuban-seed long-fillers resulting in a medium to full-bodied profile that is notably smooth. Hints of chocolate, espresso, honey, and pepper are found within each thick puff. A scrumptious blend that you can afford to burn through again and again. ​Even more importantly, it's a blend you'll want to keep stocked in your humidor for a very long time.


Gurkha Castle Hall Connecticut XO (Gordo) (6.0"x60) Single

King in the Castle. 

Castle Hall was an old Cuban brand, revitalized by K. Hansotia and the team at Gurkha. This cigar truly pays heritage to the classic Cuban version. Gurkha’s revival features a ‘Cuban-sandwich’ style blend of aged Dominican tobaccos, wrapped beneath a gorgeous Connecticut leaf. Lighting these up, there’s a balance of sweet clove notes and a classic cedar, tobacco flavor.

And with the Gurkha name behind it, you know the construction is top-notch all day, every day. All that sounds nice, but with these elegant bands and the flashy story behind it, I’m sure you’re expecting to a big ol’ price tag next to these handmades. Well, luckily, Castle Hall is priced for everyday, no-stress enjoyment. I’d recommend stocking up on these sticks before the vultures grab them all.  


Gurkha Sherpa Orange Double Corona (7.5"x50) Each

A gem from the man behind Gurkha, Kaizad Hansotia.

Meticulously blended, Sherpa is a veritable treat for the senses. Hailing from Esteli, Nicaragua, Sherpa combines a vintage combination of Cuban-seed long-leaf tobaccos cultivated from two of the Central America’s most prized growing regions: Esteli and the Dominican’s Cibao Valley. This lush mixture is subsequently cloaked by a dark Habano wrapper grown in Nicaragua.

Oily and pleasing to the eye, this choice outer leaf completes an eventful medium-bodied experience. Sherpa is rich and hearty, yet smooth from start to finish, offering enjoyable notes of leather, earth, and black espresso. The aroma is robust and toasty with a slight charcoal influence. Enjoy Sherpa, a complex and well-balanced cigar that's dirt cheap.


H. Upmann Legacy Nicaragua Belicoso (6.0"x54) Single

The perfect mistake

Join me on a quick journey, we’re going back to the past… I’ve got a story to tell that you’ll find most interesting. Right around 2014, the blenders behind H. Upmann had finally finished crafting their newest cigar: the Legacy Nicaragua. Rolled in one size, a gorgeous 6”x54 Torpedo, they sent a huge order to the factory in anticipation of the release… but the release never came. Join me now, in 2017, where we stare down these three-year-aged, perfectly blended beauties that never were. 

H. Upmann Legacy Nicaragua never received an official release, so you won’t find any fancy packaging or boxes here. What you will find, however, is a handmade cigar utilizing 100% Nicaraguan grown tobaccos for the wrapper, filler, and binder. After taking a cedar nap for over three years, each cigar comes equipped with rich flavor, handsomely delivering notes of cedar, spice, earth, and almonds on each puff. You’ll never find aged H. Upmanns going this low again, so I’d heartily recommend you secure yourself a bundle today. 


Joya del Jefe Toro (6.0"x50) Single

It ain't rated 90.... but it is a bargain

"You can put your boots in the oven, but that doesn't make them biscuits." Indeed. Joya del Jefe ain't the world's finest and will not be winning any awards among the chardonnay-and-brie crowd. However, if you're looking for a knockaround, enjoyable handmade at a cheapie price for in-between times, try this one on for size. This deal brings you 50 cigars for as low as a buck-forty apiece. It's a bargain, it's very well-made especially for a mixed-fill, and it's subtle. Can't promise you anything beyond that!


La Aurora Principes Palma Blond (Corona) (5.5"x42) Single

Big on value, small on price.

La Aurora cigars are made in the oldest factory in the Dominican Republic – established in 1903 with a rich 100 year tradition of cigar making. Popular among native Dominicans, they’re made from the trimmings of the regular La Aurora cigar production and are the pride of the Dominican cigar industry. Principes are short-filler blends offering a flavorful medium-bodied taste and smooth draw. And at these prices, you can enjoy these day in and day out without breaking a sweat.

Great news! Principes are now available in flavors! Made the exact same way as the original Principes line, and are gently infused with delicious all-natural flavors.

NOTE: La Aurora Principes have undergone a packaging change. The cigars have not changed at all, just the names on the boxes.
Vanilla is now "Blond".


La Diferencia Cubana Churchill (7.0"x50) Single

A gi-normous closeout offer on a lovely calm handmade.

As I sit here pounding the keyboard like a gorilla on a Samsonite, I am reminded what a solid closeout deal this is, and one that is flying out of here at a feverish clip. La Diferencia Cubana was a private label brand formerly made by the well-regarded Hendrik Kelner (and current maker of such brands as Davidoff and AVO). This was a gem of a cigar albeit a pricey one. But now it’s on the chopping block....and CI is swinging the battle axe with furious abandon, delivering 60% savings in bunches. Featuring a silky Nicaraguan sun grown wrapper and filler blend of Cuban-seed tobaccos, La Diferencia Cubana delivers a flavorful, creamy, smooth mellow to medium-bodied blend.

At these clearance prices, mellow-medium fans are gonna love this deal.


Palma Real Toro (6.0"x50) Single

An inexpensive treat, courtesy of Jose Blanco.

Jose Blanco has crafted some real quality, sleeper cigar blends, and his Palma Real is a classic mellow Dominican cigar. At CI prices, Palma Real is steal. Filled to the brim with Dominican grown long leaf tobaccos covered in a Connecticut-Ecuador wrapper, this blend combines to produce a surprisingly tasty profile along with a pleasant aroma and consistent taste and even burn time after time. A hidden gem at CI.


Quorum Churchill Classic (7.0"x48) Single

Quorum, where quality meets price.

Look up the word 'value' in the dictionary, and you just may find a bundle of Quorum pictured next to it. From the folks at J.C. Newman, these medium-bodied handmades are high quality with a low-budget price. The all-Nicaraguan blend issues a satisfying profile with ample amounts of flavor and body that doesn't come close to breaking the bank.


Quorum Shade Double Gordo (6.0"x60) Single

Quorum, where quality meets price.

Look up the word 'value' in the dictionary, and you just may find a bundle of Quorum pictured next to it. From the folks at J.C. Newman, these medium-bodied handmades are high quality with a low-budget price. The all-Nicaraguan blend issues a satisfying profile with ample amounts of flavor and body that doesn't come close to breaking the bank.

Quorum is available in three varieties. A shade-grown Ecuador Connecticut wrapper, a dark Ecuador sun-grown, or a rich Nicaraguan maduro.


Ramones Connecticut Presidente (8.5"x52) Single

Mellow in body, smooth in flavor

If there’s one thing we can all agree on, it’s that finding a bargain is awesome. Draft specials at baseball games, discounted tee times, slightly “scratch and dent” but otherwise perfectly fine humidors. I live for the deal. Maybe that’s how I ended up a staffer at Camp CI. Either way, my favorite deal is finding a perfect everyday smooth blend. Ramones Connecticut delivers, and it delivers in spades.

Let’s take a peek under the sheets and figure out what we’re working with here. An Ecuadorian Connecticut wrapper is flawlessly applied over mix-fillers from the Dominican Republic, Honduras, and Nicaragua. The Indonesian Sumatra binder lends a natural sweetness to this otherwise creamy, slightly spicy blend. Oh, I almost forgot the best part! Ramones Connecticut is manufactured by Camacho. Yes, that Camacho. So jump on in, the water’s fine. 


Rocky Patel Connecticut Fumas Toro (6.0"x50) Single

You gotta be Fuma kidding me!

Grab one of Rocky Patel’s best-sellers for as low as $2 per cigar. This probably has you thinking, “Holy s**t! What’s the catch?” No catch, my good man. This Fumas blend is a ‘Cuban Sandwich’ version of its namesake, and it's crafted with the trimmings of the much more expensive blend. But considering the massive amount of cash you’re saving, and how damn similar the taste is, there’s really no reason to complain. You’d be wise to get in line now, ‘cause these are gonna fly.

These Connecticut Fumas are smooth, creamy, and loaded with crisp, soothing flavors that can satisfy just about any palate. It’s an excellent choice for any enthusiast. Slow things down and take a break with this laid-back, utterly relaxing handmade that goes great with your morning cup o’ Joe.


Rocky Patel Royale Fumas Robusto (5.0"x50) Single

Fumas get the Royale treatment

Rocky Patel Royale — a gloriously complex gem, receiver of a rare 94-rating, and the highly respectable #5 Cigar of the Year in 2014. It’s a blend that members of CI Nation across the globe know and love, but it’s certainly not priced for everyday indulgence. Until today, that is. Rocky Patel Royale Fumas are here to offer the same flavor and quality you love from this RP classic, at a much more agreeable asking price. 

Now I know what you’re thinking. What’s the catch? One, the cigars have dropped the fancy box and packaging for economical bundles. Two, these are Cuban Sandwich style blends. Ask anyone who’s tried other Rocky Fumas, and they’ll tell you these cigars are well worth the price of admission. Medium to full-bodied, Royale Fumas sports an Ecuadorian Sumatra wrapper and notes of leather, coffee, and spice. Act fast, ‘cuz these are guaranteed to go quick.


Torano Hogshead Toro (6.0"x54) Single


Look, I’m not here to argue the fine points of cigar naming, but I’m also not above serving up an impromptu history lesson. Plus, this one makes perfect sense. A hogshead, besides just being served on a silver platter with an apple in its mouth, is a large wooden barrel in which tobacco or alcohol was transported and stored back when great great grand pappy was still around. This not only made lugging product from place to place easier, it also allowed whatever was inside to marry and age. And now that I’m done playing professor, welcome the newest member of the Torano family: Hogshead. Just as the name implies, expect a well-balanced handmade equipped with ample flavor.  

Torano Hogshead brings deep flavors in spades, thanks to a three country blend of Nicaraguan, Dominican, and Pennsylvanian filler leaves. This hearty, dense core is then met with a thick Brazilian Arapiraca wrapper leaf. The end result is a complex, rich display that’s slightly spicy, issuing notes of coffee, earth, and pepper. Medium to full-bodied, and brimming with rustic old school charm (check out the awesome burlap packaging), this one is going to make some waves in a jiffy. The highly enjoyable price tag is merely icing on the cake. Sweet, delicious icing….oh yes.


Uncle Buck Double Corona Natural (6.0"x44) Single

This Deck Is Stacked In Your Favor

Alright, let's be honest. When this cigar landed on my desk, I was... less than enthused. I thought maybe the delivery guy dropped it on his way up the stairs, so I went down to the warehouse, and, nope. They all look mangled.

BUT — it actually lit up and burnt pretty damn well. I'm not going to try to convince you this cigar will win any awards. As a matter of fact, I'd bet my life savings this never receives a rating. Be that as it may, for 20 bucks, you could do a helluva lot worse. The flavor is smooth and consistent, delivering an easy draw and a natural tobacco flavor that is perfect for a morning commute. If you're looking for a top-shelf recommendation, move on. If you want something pretty good that'll only cost you a buck a pop - Uncle Buck's your man.


Victor Sinclair Clasicos Maduro Torpedo (6.5"x52) Single

We’ve all fallen victim to them before – big, overhyped promises that were no fish and all batter. All grease and no bacon. All treble and no bass. Well, this deal is the exact opposite of that. For over a decade now, Jose Dominguez and his Dominican-based Victor Sinclair brand have been the kings of value, but you best have a seat before I break down his latest offering, because this may be his best work yet. Gorgeous, long-filler Dominican handmades are making their big debut at even more attractive price points!

And the options! You can take your pick of two wrapper varieties and four generous sizes, all coming to you at bare bones prices. The golden-brown Connecticut wrapper version is positively brimming with crisp, creamy notes of oak, coffee, sweetness, and toasty tobacco, and boasts a mellow to medium body. If you’d prefer to go richer, the maduro includes a dark, naturally fermented wrapper leaf and is medium-bodied. Rich, complex nuances of dark chocolate, pepper, cedar, and sweetness swiftly satisfy any maduro enthusiast.

Note: These cigars will have a pointed cap, not the round cap shown


Victor Sinclair Primeros Torpedo (6.5"x54) Single

An eye-catching, mellow-bodied gem from the Dominican.

For those seeking a mellow-bodied cigar but with ample flavor, one that is priced right and consistent time after time, Primeros answers the bell. Loaded with smooth, creamy flavors, this pleasantly mellow cigar features a golden brown Connecticut wrapper and an aged filler blend of Dominican Seco tobaccos with a sliver of Ligero. A handmade tame enough for rookie palates yet enough finesse and flavor to satisfy you grizzled veterans too.


1876 Reserve Torpedo (6.5"x52) Single

Even gramps would be proud.

On a trip to factories in the Dominican Republic some time ago, I was offered a boatload of a really nice, smooth handmade called 1876 Reserve. I’m guessing the manufacturer either drank too much Dominican rum or his abacus was busted. Don’t get me wrong, I certainly ain’t complaining because I think under normal circumstances it would’ve cost me twice as much to buy what I bought (I better remove his name from the mailing list so he doesn’t see this later).


Out Of Stock
Cuban Delights Dominican Natural - Corona (5.5"x42) Single

Skyrockets in flight…Cuban Delight!

This brand screams value. It’s perfect as an everyday blend, made of high-quality, mixed filler Dominican leaves. Handmade in the Dominican Republic and finished with a Sumatra wrapper, these mellow-bodied gems hit the spot. Cuban Delights offer exquisite sandwich-style cigars that deliver a premium cigar taste but a domestic cigar price and come packed in big-ass boxes of 50. Heck, these tasty morsels start for less than a buck apiece, so what do you have to lose?


Out Of Stock
Hesitant Pirate Churchill (7.0"x50) Single


The only hesitation that occurred was when I re-evaluated my career in the cigar business after being offered this sorry cigar. I took the maker's word that they're mellow, smooth, and not vomit-inducing. Just to make sure though, I outsourced the tasting process to a trio of palate-challenged dudes across the hall from me. They musta been knee-deep in the sauce because they gave Hesitant Pirate a unanimous thumbs up. I guess the $29.99 per bundle price tag for 20 big Churchills had something to do with it. One thing is for sure: there's no accounting for taste.
