I've gotten into little cigars

Now, please understand, when I say "little cigars," I'm not talking about the ones that look like cigarettes with filters and brown paper wrappers.

I'm talking about the Cohiba Pequeno's, the La Gloria Cubana Glorias Petite, the Macanudo Ascots, etc. I've seen them individually packaged at the B&M's. But I tend to buy them in tins of 10-12.

The other day I was in a dueling-piano bar type place, and they said I couldn't smoke a cigar in there, but that I could smoke a cigarette. If I wanted to smoke a cigar, I had to go to the upper level. Bummer.

Luckily, I was able to break out my LGC petites and enjoy them without attracting too much attention. The official reason given of why cigars were a no-no but cigarettes are ok was that the cigar smoke bothered the pianists. Which is funny to me, because I find cigar and pipe smoke MUCH easier to tolerate than cigarette smoke. I smoke cigars (no pipes yet) but I don't care for cigarette smoke at all.

Anybody have any recommendations for smaller cigars other than the few I mentioned above?

I have been smoking a bunch of the La Aroma de Cuba Interlude - (4.25 x 34)



From the Ashton Website:

La Aroma de Cuba is as exciting to smoke as it is to view. The wrapper is made from carefully chosen dark Cuban seed Honduran tobacco with plenty of oils and sheen. The filler is a blend of rich Cuban seed Nicaraguan and Honduran tobaccos and the binder is Honduran. La Aroma de Cuba has an enticing aroma and is a medium to full strength cigar. It draws easily and offers a big, enchanting flavor delivered smoothly with lots of finesse.
Yummy little smokes :tu

I'll give you a couple more. Padron Corticos in both natural and maduro and Sancho Panza (NC) Matadors. Both are excellent.Just thought of another couple, Rocky Patel Juniors and Holts small cigars.:tu

A huge of fan of the Partagas Black Label Bravo. Great little smoke, that although needs some time in a 65% rh environment or even drier, really delivers in the richness department.

These are great little smokes, I also like the RP 1990, 1992, and Sun Grown juniors.

There's the RyJ Romeos and the Punch Bolos as well. Not sure of the size offhand, but Davidoff makes some cigarillos as well that are pretty decent.

Assuming you mean the Prontos (Bravos are jawbreakers), I'll agree that they're nice. The various RP Juniors aren't bad, either.
