Cigar Journal’s Best Buy Cigars of the year 2022

The best cigars at the best price. This is what many cigar lovers are looking for. We combed through our blind tastings of the year 2022 again to find out which cigars have received particularly good reviews AND are offered for a much lower price compared to others of the same rating. We mark those cigars in our magazine with the stamp BEST BUY. The basis for our decision is the price per gram of tobacco. 77 cigars have made it to this list and you should definitely give them a try.
