In fact Dominican Republic and Nicaragua produce some of the finest cigars in the world.
Here's a great place for info:
And also, yeah, usually a $20 stick is gonna be better than a $2 one, but there are GREAT smokes in the $2-10 range!
Thanks.. I will look into this a little more.. I am actually from the Dominican Republic and was there a couple of months back.. I went into a palce and got a few of them. The guy there was telling me that the ones from there are very good. I am very interested in reading more about cigars..
