There was some one I use to grab back when some buddies and I smoked them everynow and then.

Want to say it was also around 5 bucks. I remember the wrapper had a very unique taste. It smoked OK.

Shit Ill never remember it unless I see it.

$20? Since you don't smoke cigars save your money. I suggest a Perdermo "Nick's Stick." Should be around $5 and decent.

Hmm that is a good point you bring up.

Maybe I should walk away with a few cheaper types that are different from each other. Its been years since I smoked one.

I know its nothing in the same realm, but I do dip so its hard for me to find something in the tobacco realm I dont like.

Lots of good sticks suggested in here but I would stay away from full bodied sticks with much Ligero. Everything I suggested was mild to medium.

I'm exclusive to the D-700 and Diggers, as well as the CAO 770 FlatHeads these days, but those are full bodied sticks and perhaps not the best for the beginner, or novice.

Good sticks for $20 would be the Padron Anniversario 1964s, vs. the 1926s, among others, IMO.

Great sticks that won't burn off your nose hairs.

I'd suggest a milder cigar like a Perdermo Champagne, go into a cigar store and ask the nice man to help you.I don't smoke mild sticks but a Padron 3000 is a nice medium bodied smoke, will be perfectly constructed and a great smoke; all for about $7 a stick.

Edit: You may want something like a Drew Estate Acid or Natural stick.

Two different blends or series in their line up. Both excellent. The 1964's are usually a little cheaper.

Its a Room 101 brand cigar called the Johnny Tobacconaut. I think it was a limited release (depending on how they did they were talking about making them apart of the lineup) but its a Nicaraguan Puro (wrapper, binder, and filler all Nicaraguan tobacco) But I find them pretty damn tasty and I am a sucker for space so I had to buy a box lol Happy they turned out to be good
