Cuban Parejo

I'm not sure which cigar I smoked out of this line, but it was good. It had a big ring gauge and was spicy starting off. The smoke was nice and even and had a good taste all the way through. I would recommend this cigar with a nice strong coffee or cappuccino.

You can pick this cigar up for ~$7.

This has got to be one of the best cigars that I have smoked recently. The first part of the cigar smokes like a regular cigar. Good, but nothing to write home about. But then you get to the last 1 ½ inches of the cigar. This cigar finishes with a nice, spicy touch. The Diablo retails for around $4 a stick. I recommend getting the 3-pack for about $10.

CAO Italia

If you are in the mood for a good cigar, then I highly recommend CAO's Italia line of cigars. There is the small "Ciao" and the larger "Gondolla" and "Piazza" sticks too. CAO has a website up with their entire line of cigars.

These cigars are very robust, but not overpowering. I like to smoke mine while drinking a large mocha latte. The chocolate and the coffee add to the cigar's already distinguished taste.

As for price, at the store that I get mine from, they run between ~$5 - $8.

Go out and try one today!
