Cigars 101

More mild cigars than full?

A: Actually, that’s not true. There are as many full-flavored/full-bodied cigars as any other. OK, there may be more mild to medium brands if you count machine-made cigars. There is also no shortage of ligero leaf; it’s the quality of the leaf that matters. True, some full-flavored cigars are more costly, but they usually have longer-aged tobaccos, superior construction, etc. If you want to find some excellent full-bodied cigars at reasonable prices, check out Gran Habano No.5 Corojo, VUDU (shown), Famous Nicaraguan 3000, and Rocky Patel Cuban Blend, to name a few goodies. Finally, regarding daily and weekly specials, there are plenty of great deals. Try CigarMonster.com if you’re looking for some real bargains.
