    Good article – thanks. For my 4 pennies: 1. CAO Gold Karats – excellent 4×38; 2. Rocky Patel Vintage 1999 Juniors – superb 4×38; 3. AVO Domaine Puritos – flavour packed 4×30.; 4. H Upmann (Cuban) Half Corona – great taste of Cuba in small size.

    All of these are shorted smokes without any sacrifice on quality!!

    I’d also add the following two smokes in the Cuban list:
    Partagas Shorts
    Montecristo No. 5

    I can’t believe the H Upmann Half Corona (Cuba) and Asylum 4×44 isn’t on the list! :)

    All great cigars but you missed a lot! Drew Estate Papa’s Fritas and Nica Rustica short robusto and Room 101 Namakubi Ecuador are a few of my go-to short smokes.

    Can believe Trinidad Reyes isn’t on the list. Also bang for the buck in my opinion goes for a quick smoke goes to Rafael Gonzalez Marquez Perlas. This along with H Upmann Half Corona would be my top 3.

    The Artuero Fuente Hemingway “Short Story” has always been a fav of mine. Mild and leathery, never a funky burn.

    J. Fuego Origen is a great cold weather cigar. It is a short smoke that will leave you satisfied and does not cost a fortune.

    I’m not Dr. Phil but… you all should remind your wives that you own at least half of your house. Smoke in it! Spray with Fabreeze if necessary. Smoked a Monte #5 last night, in my pajamas! Merry Christmas.

    par larranaga petit corona is hard to beat for a 35 to 45 minute smoke. Smooth, flavorful, great with hot coffee, or bourbon
