Funny question ... Almost all the cigars I have are under 125 cuc per box or under 250 cuc per cab ... Say 90 % to 95 % are anyhow .

I believe a cuc is the same as a U.S. Dollar .

I have others in the sub $5 range I like as well or better, but lately I've been buying a lot of Xicar HC series cigars from Cigars International for $2-3 per stick. They used to be more expensive, and I understand they are discontinued, so I am buying a ton of them and putting them in a coolidor for later. Terrific value!

You can get this sampler to see what you like, then watch for sales. These come to $3.50 per stick, still a great deal. I love the Habano Coloroado, the Criollo, and the Maduror (HC Black). CI rotates these into sales, so check weekly.

Xicar Defiance is also very good, I just got a couple boxes of Robustos (5.0x50) for $2.50 per stick

Flor de Oliva bundles, particularly the corojo. They are very consistent year to year, it seems like.

Smoking it right now, Ramon Bueso Genesis Habano Torpedo.

It's an incredible smoke for just over $2 a stick by the box from the evil auction site.

J. Fuego Sangre del Toro Toro is also very good for about the same money.

Few might think of it as an economy cigar, but if your price point is $5, I'd beg you for the flexibility to throw two more dimes at the question and get a box (or three) of these:

I think this thread for the most part differentiates itself from the "cheap smoke" thread where the list is inundated with obvious 'cheap' cigars. While I wouldn't want to say there's a distinct line between inexpensive and cheap it isn't so obscure. Hopefully it stays course.

The Guayacan Gallo Pinto is serving me well. Luckily I found them on Serious which knocks the price per stick down to $2.change.

CI Legends-OlivaI've wondered about those Legends. How do they feel density wise. House cigars always seem to be under-filled, loose and light.
