Cigar Journal Best Buy Cigars 2018

Looking Back: Cigar Journal’s Best Buy Cigars of 2018

We combed through our blind tastings from the year 2018 again to find out which cigars received particularly good evaluations during the course of the year but are offered for a much lower price compared to others of the same rating. We characterize such ratings in our magazine with the stamp “Best Buy”.

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.
