Great for any occasion that isn’t befitting of a full-sized cigar, small cigars and cigarillos provide a satisfying experience in a small window of time. Compact and easily portable, these abbreviated smokes exude a relaxing blast of flavor in about 15-20 minutes of puffing, making them ideal for short breaks or quick smoky getaways at any time. But not all small cigars are created equal. Here are our picks for a few of the best shorter smokes to stock up on now.
A petite cigar in line with Davidoff’s finest offerings, the Davidoff Winston Churchill Petit Panetela is rolled using a Habano Ecuador wrapper around Dominican and Nicaraguan fillers. These little luxuries deliver an exceptional array of tasting notes with tones of pepper, dark coffee, wood, spice, and cream in a convenient 4 x 38 format – a level of complexity usually reserved for larger cigars.
A miniature version of Drew Estate’s best-selling Liga Privada T52 blend, Liga Privada T52 Coronets showcase an oily stalk-cut Cuban-seed Connecticut Broadleaf wrapper over choice filler tobaccos from Honduras and Nicaragua. Robust and spicy, these Coronets pack all the full flavor and body you can handle into a 4 x 32 powerhouse.
Easily the smoothest entry on this list, Macanudo Inspirado White Minis get their earthy and spicy charm courtesy of a Connecticut wrapper leaf and a fine mix of Nicaraguan and San Andres tobaccos. These aromatic cigarillos are mellow-medium in body and subtly sweet in satisfying woody taste.
Cloaked in a dark and distinguished San Andres wrapper, Joya De Nicaragua Black Cigarillos deliver their bold character through a manageable medium body for a perfectly balanced quick-smoke. Deliciously earthy with notes of dark chocolate, dried fruit, and more, these decadent cigarillos are an excellent option for a relaxing after-dinner treat.
Possibly the ultimate small cigar to fire up on your coffee break, Nub Nuance Double Roast Cigarillos fuse the silky essence of real milk chocolate with a slightly sweet Sumatra wrapper and premium Dominican long-fillers for a one-of-a-kind flavor and aroma. This particularly tasty seasoned smoke is just begging to be paired with a fine cup of joe.
