Can you recommend cigarillos?

One of the best so far for me are the Romeo and Juliet Red. They are slight sweeter than the white and blue. Nic is a medium. My all time fave though is the Villiger Espresso, but they have been discontinued. Step up one size and try a tin of Maduro wrapper Drew Estate Sweet Jane’s....oh my. Wonderful. I get these from Atlantic Cigar and Neptunes. Both great customer service so far.

There is a club pack of Partagas.
$50 for 20 cigarillo. However where you are it's probably 50 cigarillo for $20.
Can't go wrong in my opinion.

Thanks for the tread by the way. Off to enjoy a Partagas chico from the club pack!

Oh "darn" I only have 2 left...

One now! 🤪

When I originally replied I just assumed the op was in the USA. I don’t know how accessible the non-Cuban versions of Cuban cigars are there but it sounds like they are at least somewhat available, unless a similarly packaged RyJ cigarillo is made in Cuba, too, and you’re talking about those.

But at any rate, this conversation inspired me to buy a tin of Honduran Sancho Panza cigarillos and I’m having one right now. Very tasty.

I sure haven’t. Never having heard of them is as good a reason as any to try them if they’re affordable, though!
I checked back and they were affordable enough - €5-6 - but the reviews weren't very encouraging.... And when I saw these for €10 the choice was clear.

I know Piedras are looked down upon by the Habanos cognoscenti, but these are a truly phenomenal smoke for the price. They're more like short coronas, though, being 43rg x 4". They stack up against any Fuente or Davidoff at a fraction of the price. Not as easy to get for those in the US, though.

43x4 sounds like a great piddling stick. I love cigars that size for when I’m poking around the property doing little projects.
