Hey folks, I am working in the honey bee business and now stuck in the middle of nowhere Georgia for the next few months. I am looking for suggestions on a good robusto size bundle cigar in the $25 to $30 price range I can order online.

When living in Maine I was getting a nice one with a green label at a local cigar store, but cant remember the name (senility setting in?). In Virginia I was smoking quorums. Not great, but decent when on a budget.

Hope the old gang is doing well.

sigsauer, I started in the late 90s as a hobbiest. This past year I wanted a life change and started working with a commercial beek in Maine to learn the ropes. My goal is to start an apiary in Virginia in a year or two.

I'd look at some of these seconds. The Nicaraguan 90+ are Oliva and the Ligero laced are Cains. Both very good.

Here's a good deal on Gran Habano's:

http://www.cigarpage.com/gran_habano.html

Two weeks ago, this site had the Gran Habano's at a really low price of $19 per 10 sticks:tu


And, here's their current everyday deal going on at this time:

Don't know what flavors/strength you prefer, but here's an
excellent bundle maduro cigar, medium/full strength:

https://www.famous-smoke.com/famous+nicaraguan+selection+5000+toro+cigars/item+30309

Famous Nicaraguan 5000, only $44/20 Toros, and they're doing
free shipping right now if you use the code FSOVER25.

They also have Robustos for $41/20, but trust me, the Toros are better.

Here's a killer-bee deal, but you'll have to spend $$ up front:

http://www.atlanticcigar.com/All-Cigars/J-Fuego-Origen-Natural-Original-Packs-125.asp

J.Fuego Origen Original, $85/12 5-packs (60 cigars) 5"x44 ring petite figurado.

Medium-full strength, great flavors. I call them "the poor man's Padron".
Can't beat these for $1.50/stick. But hurry, only 2 more in stock.

Awesome!! A company installed some hives on the roof of my office building and its so very interesting to hear about the plight of the honeybees and watch them work. The Honey tastes amazing also.

Tough price range but the Oliva Flor de Oliva are well thought of and close to that price.

Another idea - you can often nail J.Fuego Corojo Oscuros on CigarBid for
$1.50 or less. Ex: currently a bundle of 20 Torpedos at $16. Auction ends
in about 1-1/2 hours from now. These come up pretty often. And they're good.

This is a great everyday cigar from Ybor City, Tampa.

I get either the toro or torpedo.

Oh man, what WAS I thinking?
Of course, you've GOT to include Asylum Schizo!!
Bundle of 20 Robustos are:

$27 at JRCigars
$27 at Cigars Int'l
$25 at BestCigarPrices
$25 at Atlantic Cigar, but Back-ordered

Reviving an old thread: I'm smoking my second Oliva Factory Select - Robusto. They're Nicaraguan bundle cigars made by Oliva for Famous Smokes. They seem to be well made; after 2 from the bundle they burn nicely and draw easily. They're spicy with some cedar and leather flavors. Assuming the rest are as good, I'll buy more. They currently are $31 for 15 cigars plus a free sampler of 10 cigars. Very pleased.
