There's a reason these are called Bottom Shelf. As a matter of fact, even saying they aren't the greatest would be giving them a bit too much credit. All that aside these cigars still have their place. They're still a step above the homogenized and press-rolled cigars of White Owl and Dutch Masters as they're made from 100% natural tobacco. There always comes a time when a simple smoke is needed and everything else is thrown to the wind, and it's these times that Bottom Shelf, with its 89-cents per stick price tag, really shines.
