The 5 Best Cigars to Buy in Bulk

American cigar culture is currently experiencing both an encouraging boom, and a legislative crunch. Increasing positive relations with Cuba will soon ensure that their famous cigars will be available for purchase across the United States. Unfortunately cigars are also poised to be caught in the crossfire between e-cigarettes and the FDA, with stringent restrictions being imposed . This is counterbalanced by the internet making it easier then ever to purchase cigars, untethering cigar smokers from brick and mortar stores. As such, consider stocking your humidor, as it’s never been easier to purchase discounted bulk sized boxes. This list is 5 easy smoking favorites that won’t drain your wallet.

5. Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Connecticut – Capitalizing on the success of their Vintage 1990 and 1992 lines, Rocky Patel has released the 1999 Connecticut. The 1999 Connecticut combines a silky, heavily aged Connecticut wrapper with a signature Rocky Patel blend to create a smooth, mild cigar. Perfect for shady summer days, or late night card games, expect to pay roughly $170 (depending on your retailer).

4. CAO Flathead V660 Carb – The V660 Flathead is a newer offering from CAO, combining big size with big flavor. Measuring in at a hefty 6×60 size, the V660 Flathead was designed for those who demand bold flavors from their cigars. Designed to be sold in bulk (due to its distinctively box pressed shape) the V660 both ships and stores well. Though some may be put off by their size, their lower price point (around $90 per box) can encourage folks to give them a try.

3. Nub by Oliva – The Oliva constructed Nub line of short cigars offer big flavor in a small package. Designed for a quick 20 minute smoke, and now available in a wide variety of flavors, the Nub line has rapidly become the go-to smoke of many aficionados. Expect to pay roughly $120 per box, depending on composition.

2. My Father Le Bijou 1922 – The Le Bijou is the seminal offering from the venerable My Father Cigar Company. American made and top rated among almost every reviewer, the Le Bijou is about as close to ‘can’t miss’ as cigars get. Considering their provenance, you may be surprised to find that these undisputed champions only cost around $250 per box.

1. Padrón Family Reserve 50 Years Natural – The Padrón Cigar Company recently released this classically Cuban inspired stick to celebrate their 50th year in business. Widely considered to be one of the best cigar companies in the world, Padrón’s 50 Year stick is a masterpiece of cigar craftsmanship.
