small cigars

Postby custodian » Tue Oct 16, 2012 12:49 am

I have been chipping around with some small cigars that I picked up at the local grocery and drug store... they come in handy for a small break during yard work... I usually reserve a bowl of tobacco for after the work has been completed. I am staying with a 23 - 30 ring gauge smoke (Garcia/Vega and Middleton so far)... and thinking about adding a box of 25 - 50 to my next order of pipe tobacco... anybody here enjoy a nice cigarillo when short on time? Maybe some input on favorite brands... do you prefer a tip or none... machine made or handrolled?

Hi, I love a cigarillo when I'm on the go once in awhile, I mainly smoke a pipe but I do quiet enjoy one when I get the chance, usually when I'm caught out without my pipe & tobacco, I will stop at a quick stop and grab a 5 pack box of , don't laugh now! Swisher Sweets, & I quiet enjoy the cheap cigars, most cigar smokers wouldn't be caught dead with them , but there good smokes. G'Day Sir.

I like Nobel Petits every now and then. Good for when out for a beer with mates who smoke ciggies.

Not sure if you can can get these in the US?

Im leaning toward a box of these with my next tobacco order... $20 for a box of 50 is a lot cheaper than what I am paying locally...

The only thing I am wondering about is keeping them humidified... or are these dry cured & require no humidor?

I wouldn't worry too much about it, unless you leave them for longer than a few weeks. In that case, you could get some humidifying beads and just chuck 'em in the box with the cigarillos. I reckon that would do the job pretty well. I have some Heartfelt Beads in my small desktop humidor and they keep the humidity absolutely rock solid at 65%.

(There is a cheaper option: you could use odourless crystal kitty litter. Wet half of them, and put them in a little dish into the box. Same thing.)

I've been smoking De Nobili and Parodi dry cured Tuscan style cigars lately. They are roughly made Italian style cheroots, made from 100% fire-cured Kentucky. Very robust flavor compared to most cigarillos IMO. I really like these, but I love fire cured Kentucky though so YMMV.

I found the Parodi King cigars at my local Rite Aid drug store. These are made by Avanti.

My favorite little cigars were always
JR Habanitos and ERDM Cafe' Noir and Cafe' Au Lait.
I have a bunch of em put away.
I don't know how the current production of these are.
I bought em when they still came from the Villazon factory in Honduras.

My local B&M proprietor gave me a few cigarillos yesterday, and I have to say they are quite tasty, not to mention handy for those times when I feel like a smoke but don't have the time nor volition to dicker around with a pipe (which was basically all of today, between exams, the election, and god knows what else, I've been smoking heavily as of late). I have no idea of the brand, but will be picking up a tin when he gets them in and will report back.

Think I may have found a cigarillo that I like the most so far... I emailed a request for free samples to Captain Black cigars... and got a half dozen in the mail... they are a 23 ring... with a plastic tip... which I will have to get used to... but they smell & taste really good.

Who'd you email? I've been curious to try them, but leery of buying a full pack. A sampler from Lane would be great.

In case anybody's interested, the cigars I was smoking were the Mehari's Java by Agio.
