Yes, $7.00 is a good figure. You can go to $6.00., buying by the box, but for that price you're probably going to find that Olivias are the best, but with them I never really got the smoke that I wanted from, say, the G. Now the V was another story entirely, but for some reason I didn't want to pay that price and ended up smoking cigars even more expensive! Go figure.

Well, I just "up"ed my cheap ass cigar game.

I went from a $3 cigar to a $5 one.

Ordered a box of 20 CAO Pilon Coronas for about a hunnert dolla.

A bonus offer on Cigar Int'l allowed a $5 add on for 10 CAO Flathead V660 Carb cigars, which seemed like an awfully good deal.

My 10 seconds of research leads me to believe that the Flatheads will likely kick my ass, though...

Anyone smoke either of these?

The Pilon are pretty good. For $5, I'd rather have a box of Partagas Shorts or Por Larrañaga Montecarlos (or Fuente 858, La Flor Dominicana Cameroon Cabinet no 3 and Montesino), but the Pilon are the one bright spot, for me, since Cano Ozgener sold the CAO brand.
