Cigars International has great deals on cigars and great product all of the time, but the company, in general, has a long way to go for customer service expectations.

Mean suckers
I definitely dig these guys. They give off a barbeque campfire vibe. The cold draw on this in almost sweet like barbeque sauce. When lit you get a pretty strong, but Ohhhhhhhhh so enjoyable smoke. I definitely recommend these, they will be my winter smoke when I don't wanna freeze my fingers off but still want a decent, flavorful smoke

A perfect drive time smoke
First, these taste good. They taste like cigars. There's a good density to the cigar that makes the draw right, and gives a good 30 minute smoke. Second, they are dry processed (fire cured), so that you don't need to humidify them, keep a 5 pack in your glove box, or tackle box and rest easy. I'm a fan of Nicaraguan tobacco, my base smoke is an Oliva V, while this is no Oliva V, it's a good stick for driving to work, mowing the yard, or running errands. Cheap, tasty, and easy to store.

Great little cigars that I started smoking 45 years ago. Parodi is my everyday smoke.

Most of the time the
Most of the time the Prodio's are very good, but some of the time I have to relight them, some are coming apart, can't smoke them at all. as many as 2 or 3 boxes of 5 cigars out of 20, on the last order, but the other orders where AOK! No problems. I smoke 2 a day, and a Padron Churchhill. Thanks! Bob

I have been smoking Parodi cigars for years. They are just what I want - a small cigar that packs a big punch. Most people think they are like smoking a dog-end. I like them.
Customer Testimonials
I enjoy these rough little cigars a lot. Even my girl likes the smell when I light one! Quick, flavorful, and dry cured makes these easy to keep around. The price for the enjoyment is great....Flavors are hickory campfire meets a bit of sweet and pepper with a dash of saltiness and are best after the halfway point. I recommend these and keep them in hand year round.
Parodi cigars, including the Kentucky Cheroots, are an excellent buy. Dry cured and a bit on the rough side, but delicious and without pretense! Perfect for yard work and relaxing, they are a tasty fill in when you don't have the time to smoke a Churchill, but want full body and taste. I highly recommend them.
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.
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.
good flavor, just the right size
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).
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!
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.
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!
