Great Smokes without blowing the wallet

Given today's economy, personal pleasures have become that bit more important in order to escape the harsh reality of every day life. Curbing ones spending does not necessarily mean you have to give up on personal preference or quality. As we viewed Cigar Aficionados Top 25 cigars of the 2008 and their particular attention to price, we quickly realized that their was a false belief that Cubans are always expensive. Lets compare what is comparable. A Cohiba Esplendidos may cost $35 a stick, but then so does the Opus X Perfection #2, a comparably sized non-Cuban cigar (although I would argue not comparable in quality). When I started to compare what you could get in Cuban production for $4-6 a stick with what you get in non-Cuban production for the same price, I was very surprised by the difference in quality. I truly believe you can now smoke Cuban cigars of higher quality than non-Cubans for the same price. Better blend and better construction for the same price or less! So we have created the Bargain Market, where you will find all of the reasonable Cuban cigars in one click. Even in tight economic times, who can't justify spending $4-6 for a wonderful cigars?
