The Katman’s List of 199 Great Cigars in the $5.00-$9.00 Range | Cigar Reviews by the Katman

I first started this list nearly 5 years ago. I’ve done my hardest to update it to keep current.

A recent comment had a valid bitch. I always refer to a lousy cigar by saying there are lots of $5-$9 cigars much better. But I give no examples.
So here it is. I’ve gone back to March of 2012. These are release dates. And cigars are in regular production. No limited editions.

Prices may be box prices or they may have increased.
The sticks are based upon online store pricing. No taxes are figured in. B & M pricing is not figured in. Neither is shipping. Just raw pricing. I do not put prices next to each cigar as they may fluctuate from store to store. Many of these cigars can be had even cheaper on the online auction sites.

This list is not a Top 199 in any particular order. They were merely chosen by date reviewed. And I have reviewed every single cigar in this list so feel free to look them up to see if they are your cup of tea.

Also, the price range may tip the $9.00 range. And it may be less than $5.00.
I have also compiled a list of “The Katman’s Best 255 Boutique Brands/Blends in the $6-$12.00 Range.”

  1. Thanks kat man. This is exactly what I was looking for and keep up the great work.

  2. I am getting a HUGE response to this post.
    So, now I am going to go back to 2010.
    Thanks Matt for kicking me in the ass.

  3. I should clarify. When I mention the year, I mean the year the cigar was released.
    And I only include cigars that are regular production cigars. So no one has to worry about a dwindling supply.

  4. How about a similar list but with cigars that require extending resting periods versus cigars utilizing the “new breed tattooed ones'” before they reach optimal flavor?

  5. Joe,
    Do you have any idea how long that will take with over 1700 reviews? I will need to read every single one.
    You need to start taking your medication again.
    Or send me a box of my favorite cigars and I will think about it. Or you read the reviews and send me a list where I’ve said that. LOL!

  6. Dear Rabbi/Sage/Professor Katman
    Thank you for subjecting yourself to the request of us pesky readers and doing this list, pro bono. I saw the Oliva Saison on it and decided to light one up for comparative analysis, paragraph by paragraph. It’s almost comical how spot on your descriptions were to my experience – the red pepper, leather, earth, even the burn line! As for your injured hand… what cigar reviewer can now say he bled for us aficionados except you???

  7. Yo, baby
    It is 7:18am and like a shmo, I am sitting at my laptop because I could sleep no longer from the agonizing pain of being a rodeo clown in front of my house.
    You never fail to put a smile on my face with your comments.
    You are the best,
    Your loyal sex slave

  8. Katdude…Thanks for the list…You know what would be interesting ??? A list of dead musicians who used to smoke full bodied cigars,while making love to full figured women…That stuff really turns my crank at my advanced age…I’m sending a box of full bodied women as we speak…Keep up the good work my friend…

  9. Phil, have you tried the Man O War Authentico Puro maduro in Corona? I had one this morning and Oh Boya, it’s really good. 🙂

  10. Yes. I have some in my humidor. A gift. Too small to review.
