Remember when value-priced premium cigars cost under $3 per stick? Cigar companies are now referring to $5 and $6 cigars as being value priced. However, Torano introduced a real value-priced cigar in 2010 that is still priced under $3. In fact, I have seen them online for as low as $34 per bundle of 16 cigars. Torano's new Brigade Cigar is not only inexpensive, but it has a great tasting mild-to-medium flavor with a hint of sweet spice. The cigar is well made and has a great draw and even burn. These cigars are made with Nicaraguan filler tobaccos and Ecuadorian Connecticut wrappers.
Torano Brigade cigars are a great choice for beginners and mainstream cigar smokers, alike. Not as rich, smooth or complex as Torano's other new cigars released during 2010, but they are still very enjoyable and do not turn bitter or bland like some other mild cigars with higher price tags. Therefore, our choice for the best new value-priced cigar introduced during 2010 is the Torano Brigade.
