Everyday cigars offer the best of both worlds. They’re high quality and affordable. Everyday cigars are better than your typical yard ‘gar or utility bundle, but they also won’t exhaust your monthly cigar allowance just because you splurged on a box. A great everyday blend is also one you’ll never be embarrassed to hand out to your pals. Here are ten excellent everyday cigars you can enjoy at the drop of a hat without breaking the bank.

Award-winning father-and-son cigar-makers Jose ‘Pepin’ Garcia and Jaime Garcia blend the complete La Aroma de Cuba portfolio.

An oily Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper embraces a vintage amalgam of Nicaraguan binder and filler tobaccos cultivated on select Garcia family estates. Tasting notes of dark chocolate, molasses, wood, and black pepper intrigue the palate in several well-made shapes.
