Hey guys...sorry ive been away...quick update...got a new job...new town...things are going well. In my new fast paced life ive found the need to shorten my smoke time. I love big ring gauges and full bodied smokes, but now I'm looking to shorten my smoking times on occasion...(like a lunch break) I know this has been a topic posted a zillion times but im too lazy to look through all the posts....if you can help me out...just name a few corona's or short smokes you know of that are of good quality so i can throw together my own sampler. No need for the 5 vegas shorty cause ive got that one in my cart already...thanks guys!!!! (and gals respectively)

    I haven't had it (or if I have, it was many, many years ago), but the Punch Punch has a lot of fans. The best shorties I've had recently were the Oliva O perfecto and the Nub Cameroon torpedo. I don't think I've smoked any coronas. I do have a few Uppman coronas in the humi now, though. I'll try to remember to let you know if they're any good, when I get around to smoking one. They should be rested enough in another week or so.

    If you haven't tried one yet, I'd recommend checking out the Cusano P1 Cafe Robusto (5 x36) for a short smoke, roughly 30-45 minutes. Or for a real flavor bomb, the same line but the Corona size, that was my favorite from the line.

    Well I just burned a nice smaller cigar, and I would strongly recommend it....
    La Aurora 1495 Cameroon 1994.
    Small corona size, but not short on flavor. This smdoke is a little pricey, but if it fits into your budget, it's definately worth a shot.

    CAO makes tins. I think the italias translate fairly well into small cigars. Gurkha makes some as well but ive never seen them in person.

    wow..thanks guys great suggestions. I have about 26 cigars coming in the mail now...should suffice my shorty craving for awhile and give me an idea of which ones I might like to add to an everyday list...keep the suggestions coming if you think of anymore!!

    Welcome back handypantz, been a while. Above were all good suggestions but right now my favorite short smoke is the Punch champion. Maybe next time. Good luck with new life as well :)
