Parodi by Avanti

For a limited time, enjoy an additional $5 off Parodi Kings 50-ct and Parodi Ammezzati 100-ct. Discount reflected in prices below.

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 burned 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".

Parodi by Avanti Kings
A good cigar for whenever you want something different. The subtle hickory smoke flavor sets it off nicely. Doesn't require a humidor makes it simple as a 'take anywhere' cigar can get.

Fantastic Cigars
I have smoked parodi cigars for years. I ride motorcycles and parody will not unwrap or come apart riding. They are a great smoke. As the box says," not strong ,not mild but different.

Very disappointed!
I am a huge fan of Parodis. I love the Kings and the Ammezzati. These were much more harsh and had a tough draw. I realize these are less expensive machine-mades, but they don't hold a candle the other cigars in the line. Not buying them again.

Parodies - A Great Cheap, Quick Smoke
I'm a premium cigar smoker with no interest in "grocery store/drug stire" cigars with their odd paper wrapper and that dreadful taste. Because of that I dismissed the Parodi brand out of hand, thinking they were of the same vein. How wrong I was! These Italian style cigars are an entirely different animal. A unique, bold, pleasant flavo; a tobacco wrapper; and a distinctive, rustic look, the Parisi Amelia to offers a cheap, quick smoke that comes in handy. Being an Italian style cigar there is no need to store in a humidor, making them a convenient option as well. They are not a premium cigar by any means. The Parodies us a separate thing altogether, but a satisfying thing that, given a try, you may find yourself craving. Just don't make the mistake of categorizing these with Swisher Sweets or whatever out of hand. If so you may just be missing a treat.

Big cigar in a small size
These gnarly little cigars surprised me. There's a lot of taste and pleasure in these small smokes. I expected leaks in the ugly wrappers but haven't found any yet. Good draw. These are becoming a regular smoke for me.

Excellent 15-minute cigar
My go-to when I only have 15 minutes. It's very similar in flavor and strength to Padron Maduro.

Good cigar
I have been buying parodi as my daily smoke for a while now and i like the flavor, smoky pepper to start with a nice change to a smooth slightly sweet flavor toward the end. Dry cured so i can keep them at hand while out and about with no problems. This little cigar has lots of what i like and in the king size the smooth flavor lasts much longer than the smaller size. I buy these regularly and recommend them to everybody.

Just Buy Em' Already
I used to go for Backwoods but their quality control has been nonexistent as of late. I decided to search for an alternative and boy am I glad I found these. They're tasty, cheap, and the quality is so much higher than the competition. These are great bang around smokes.

An enjoyable smoke
I like the Parodi Kings for a quick smoke when I don't have time for a bigger stogie. They have a unique, pleasant taste.

Good little cigars :)
Good flavor of you like a Maduro smoke. Some have such a tight draw that you can't even smoke them. Maybe 1 out of every 8 or so. But overall great flavor. Some of my favorite everyday short smokes. Great with coffee.

Parodi and De Nobili exact same cigar
"I just heard back from Dominic Suraci at Avanti Cigar, whose family owns the business. Very nice guy, and very helpful – he told me to share this with you: “All of our cigars are made with the same tobaccos. We use only the finest Kentucky and Tennessee Dark Fired tobaccos in all of our blends. Prior to 1945 the Parodi and De Nobili brands were slightly different. They still used the same tobacco but were made in different factories. The Parodi’s were made in Jersey City, NJ up until 1929, and the De Nobili’s were made in Long Island City, New York until 1945. After 1945 they were both made in the same factory in Scranton, Pa. To more directly answer the question, The Parodi’s and the De Nobili’s are the exact same cigar. The brand names were retained because, back then De Nobili was New York’s Italian cigar and Parodi was New England‘s Italian cigar.” So there you go – the difference between Parodi and De Nobili – nothing. Same cigar!"

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

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!
