    Cigarillos

    Are there any quality Cigarillos? Long filled ect.? I know that many cigar companies make very small versions of their own cigars, but these aren't labeled as cigarillos.

    Maybe try and find Padron Corticos. They come in a tin of 6.

    Cigarello means "small cigar". That being said most cigars (that I am familiar with) that call themselves Cigarello are chopped tobacco (or cigarette tobacco), which is why some of the better brands avoid that name and connotation. (Ashton is an exception)

    Jay is correct as far as I know, but depending how small you are looking for, some companies do put out petit coronas that are not chopped filler; may be worth looking into

    Thanks for clarifying, that is what I was trying to say. A petite corona or other name is used often with the better (long filler) version of Cigarellos, because they don't want to be thought of in the same light as Swisher Sweets, and White Owl and other cheap junk.

    Suggestion: Old Fashioned Chico Cameroons or Naturals.

    Hard to find, but they are Partagas and somebody else's seconds. I have really enjoyed them. Cheap ($25 for 50) at Mike's Cigars.. and tasty. Much better than anything else I've had in the size. Bigger than small cigarillos, maybe a half-hour smoke. Similar in size to Rocky Patel's Vintage tins.

    My go-to quick smoke.
