    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.

    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.

    The best I've had are the Cohiba Pequenos and the AF Cubanitos. All others I've tried haven't really done it for me. I will be looking into those Ashton's though.

    I like the Davidoff Ambassadrice's

    They aren't exactly the cheapest but they're reliable in quality and taste. They also don't seem to have that 'burn' and heat you get from alot of the cigarillo size.

    AF cubanitos are good. I've almost convinced my wife to stop smoking cigarettes for them. a few more weeks... I have heard that the petite tatuaje and cabiguan are good and I am going to try the CAO L'Anniversarie and LaFlor Daiquri also.
