Parodi by Avanti

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".

Still my favorite.
Small handy to carry. Great flavor. Enjoyable smoke. Easy to use the leftovers in my pipe. And the neat thing it seems to ease the lupus when I'm in a flair. Note that is not medical advice I am merely stating what they do for me. They may not do the same for everyone or anyone else.

My uncle used to smoke Parodies back in the day but I think they were soaked in Brandy. I could not find them so I thought I would give these a try. Very nice.

My go to for a quick smoke.
I've been smoking Parodis for years. They are a great size for a quick smoke and for packing in the glove box. You will get an occasional stick rolled too tight to smoke but I think that occurs less with the Kings. Since they are dry cured a humidor is not necessary but that process does also cause the occasional hole in the side.

Parodi vs. Cohiba Black Piquenos
I don't have time for monster smokes. My current favorite is Cohiba Black Piquenos, but tried the similar sized Parodi. While rolled more loosely and sporting a shaggy look, if you like some peat in your single malt you should give these a try. They burn evenly and cost less than half of a Cohiba.

Daily cigar
These are my daily go to cigars along with the shorter Ammezzati. Love the smokey mesquite notes, also get red pepper at the start and cocoa powder about halfway through. Also nice that they don't half to be humidified.

Parodi is great, but Ammezzati not so much
I've smoked Parodi's for over a decade. I mistakenly ordered the Ammezzati size and just don't care for them. It's true that the tobacco is the same, but the size is just way too small. The ring gauge is the same, but they're so short it's just not satisfying. Of course this might be personal preference, but these really are just so incredibly short that they're not worth it.

I like Parodis
I like Parodis I just don't understand why a box of the cigars costs more than a 10 pack. They contain exactly the same number of cigars.

Parodi Cigars can be great
I have smoked Parodi Cigars since 1970 or there about. As a rule, they are a very good cigar. That being said, if you get a batch that is rolled to tightly, they are impossible to smoke and a terrible waste of money. I recently purchased 100 Parodi's and they are rolled very well and they are great little cigars. About ten percent of the time, one will get a bad batch. The rest of the time, you will get a great smoke. They are worth the gamble.

Awesome smoke
I've been smoking these for years. Great smoke, great price. I've been a fan of the Italian style dry-cured Toscano style cigar since I was a teenager, when I discovered these, I was very impressed. Perfect for those times when you want a good, flavorful smoke, but don't have a lot of time. This is my regular daily smoke.

Great Vintage Cigarillo/Cheroot
These are packaged and travel very well and burst with leather aroma when you open the cardboard supported cellophane. Great smoke right off the bat and always remains lit. Very flavorful from start to finish. Great golf and travel cigarillo!

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.

Always a good choice
Parodi kings are my goto daily smoke. They always taste great and the kings version is just more of a good thing. Dry cured so i can keep them on hand for any time i want a break. Flavor starts off with a smokey pepper and sweetens up a bit past the halfway mark. I buy regularly and highly recommend to anyone i talk to

Best machine made cigars, period.
I've been smoking Parodi Kings for years. Most machine made cigars burn like a cigarette and are far too mild. Not Parodi. Parodi can smoke for 20 to 30 minutes and are med-full in flavor. Being dry cured make them very easy to keep. I find them to be quite satisfying.

My all time go to Cigar.
I try to always keep plenty Parodis on hand. They are the perfect length for a simple daily smoke and I enjoy the flavor. Being dry cured I don't have to worry about constantly keeping them in the humidor.

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.

Parodi - A Matter of Taste
For someone looking for a quality smoke along the Padron line, this ain't it. That being said, I really like these little smokes. There's nothing fancy about them. You won't find reviews talking of "a hint of cedar and espresso". What you get with the Parodi is a solid little smoke along the lines of the home grown ones you find, if you've ever been down on a tobacco farm. (I'm in Kentucky) They are more tobacco than fluff. I have found them to be consistent in quality (for an all-tobacco cigar). You won't get a lot of smoke out of them in comparison to a full-sized cigar, but what you do get is good. I smoke these a lot while riding, so the tight nature of their construction, and their minimal ash is a plus. They won't rip apart at 70 mph, like most of your boutique smokes do. The Parodi Kings will give you a good 15-20 minutes of smoke, which is pretty good for a small smoke. I recommend you try a box. At the price, you won't be out much if you hate 'em.

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
5 out of 5
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.

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!
