    Default Best cigarillos?

    Hello all. I'm new to the wonderful world of cigars and am in the process of discovering what I like. Currently I'm trying to find a nice little cigarillo that I can smoke at during breaks at work. I've tried Garcia y Vega cigarillos, Acid Golden Sumatra, and the Al Capone Cognac, so far I think I like the Al Capone Cognacs the best.

    Any recommendations that won't break the bank?

    Try the Ashton Senoritas....10 to a box and in most B&M's are the best bang for the buck!

    Ashton Small Cigar Series

    or the Mocambo Senoritas Cigars....they come in a chest/box of 50 at a very good price and it's a medium bodied smoke.

    Mocambo Senoritas Cigars

    Both Senoritas are 3.50 in length with a 30 ring gauge.

    I don't understand the purpose of the line, "I don't need to drink to have fun." Great, no one does. But why start a fire with flint and sticks when they've invented the lighter?

    Then how about a good recommendation for a small cigar that I can smoke to completion in a 15-30 minute break and not smell so bad that I offend co-workers and customers?

    Well, the thing is the words for cigar, cigarillo, cigarette,...varies according to the country. Here, a cigar is called puro, regardless of it being an actual puro. Now, Spain calls them tabaco which isn't hard to translate. In Cuba, one buys habanos as cigars. Cigarillo is spaniard for cigarette, while in Mexico it's called cigarro. A purillo would be the small cigar here.

    Maybe I want to start calling the little ones cigarritos.

    This is pretty cool:
