Scoff I must, sir. Machine-made cigars use low-quality tobacco with no regard for fermentation or proper aging techniques. In addition, since these cigars are intended for gas stations and pharmacies they are almost never stored in humidors. Because of that manufactures use flavoring additives and preservatives to maintain the flavor and freshness of the tobacco. In fact, most machine cigars use a combination of chopped up second-hand tobacco and "homogenized" tobacco, which is tobacco scraps combined with water and vegetable-based adhesive and extruded into paper-like sheets.

I'd avoid them entirely. Smoking a cigar should be a relaxing, slow process of enjoyment and a time to savor the nuances found in beautifully crafted cigars. One should also appreciate the time, effort and artistry that went in to the cigar you have gently tucked between your fingers. Go with the good stuff.
