This Parodi is no joke.
My Italian was never all that good (I only took it for the cute blonde girl up front). But one thing I do know, the first few times I smoked these I kept saying Parody. Pa-ro-di sounds more like it. Anyway, Parodi small cigars have been made on American soil since the early 1900's. Utilizing Kentucky and Tennessee Dark Fired tobaccos, these little guys aren't to be taken lightly. Rich, feisty and heavy on the palate, these American made treats deliver an eye-opening experience delivered in a small package. One of the guys in the office takes these fishing in the morning to wake himself up. And as he says, "they've got some, ahem, cojones".
“These things are really quite satisfying- pretty strong but not harsh, you know you've smoked one! Nothing subtle about this cigar. The appearance is rough, if you were out in the yard and dropped one, it would look just like a twig, all gnarly. One of the great things about these is they are dry, no humidor required to store- throw a pack in the glove box or tackle box and a year later they're still good. The surprising thing is they actually are a good tasting cigar, and fairly long burning- a good half hour or more. Avanti makes these as well as the De Nobili, they say it is the same cigar in both packages, I've smoked both and tend to agree. If I were you I'd pick up a pack of five to try them (around here CVS sells them for $5.99) before you spring for the bundle, since they're not everybody's cupcake. They won't replace a fine cigar, but sometimes they're just the thing you want- a little taste of the old country!”

“The Parodi King is my go-to daily smoke. Its a good 45min-60min burn, and for the price it can't be beat. Definitely not a cigar for everyone; the gnarled appearance and unique aroma definitely fit it's rugged persona. Due to being dry-cured with hickory smoke, reminds me of a campfire.”

“Definitely different! For a relatively quick and cheaper smoke, it's pretty good. Pulls very easily, constant flavor throughout. A bit spicy, but not overwhelming. Glad I picked them up!”

“I got the Ammezzati (cigarillos) to try some cheap and small/quick smokes. Turns out...they're inexpensive and great! About 20 minutes but great flavor for what they are! Just store them separately from your regular smokes. Since they're fire-cured and they're quite aromatic, they'll "infect" your normal batch (as well as your humi).”
“The Parodi/DeNobili was always a favorite of the old Italian guys growing up in Newark. I love them. Not a fine cigar, and no rating here, just a great every day smoke. They are certainly an acquired taste, and not for everyone.
If you like dry cured cigars, this is for you.”
SC of Bloomfield, NJ
“A great yard work cigar. Nothing fancy. Solid construction. Old World shape and flavor. Taste is nothing to write home about, but when you're mowing the lawn, a hit of spicy tobacco mitigates the chore.”
