Best Buy 2017

Cigar Journal’s Best Buy Cigars In 2017

We combed through our blind tastings of the year 2017 to find out which cigars received a “Best Buy” attribute last year.

The basis for our decision is the price per gram of tobacco. The cigars whose price per gram lies significantly below those of competing products receive the attribute Best Buy. Note, however, that because we disclose to our international readers prices in US dollars, Euros and Swiss francs, where possible, it may happen that a certain cigar is particularly favorable in US dollars, but in other currencies, on the other hand, has average prices. So, as you are reading, please take into account the various pricings in the three currencies.
