In a perfect world, nothing would keep you from enjoying a premium double corona every time you wanted to smoke a cigar. However, we don’t live in a perfect world. Bad weather, a busy schedule, and plenty of other factors may limit your relaxation time with a cigar. Thankfully, even if you only have a few minutes, you can still find a great smoke for any occasion. Here are a few of our favorite smaller cigars: 

Punch Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby

We begin our list with a new entry to the popular Punch Knuckle Buster line. Knuckle Buster Habano Stubby contains both Nicaraguan and Honduran Habano tobacco and weighs in at a chubby 4.5 X 60 size. So while this cigar isn’t exactly small, it certainly is short! 

Nub Maduro

Speaking of fat little cigars, Nub Maduro by Oliva is a classic of the genre. Nub Maduro is a 4 X 60 parejo with a Brazilian Maduro wrapper that’s loaded with notes of toast, chocolate, and nuts. 

Undercrown Flying Pig

There are chunky cigars, and then there’s the Undercrown Flying Pig from Drew Estate. This oddity is a 4.1 X 60 perfecto that will catch the eye at your next smoke session. We recommend the Maduro version, which features a toothy Mexican San Andrés wrapper. 

Gran Habano Lunch Break

Looking for a small cigar that’s, say, the right size to enjoy on your lunch break at work? Then look no further than the Gran Habano Connecticut Lunch Break. At 4.5 X 40, the Lunch Break represents a tasty treat you can enjoy without disrupting your daily routine. 

Hoyo Excalibur Cigarillos

Our final entry is the cult-classic Hoyo Excalibur Cigarillo. At just three inches long, the Excalibur Cigarillo is the perfect stick to enjoy if you only have a few minutes to spare. Plus, you can fit a whole tin in your pocket –– so you can keep them on hand whenever needed.

    Here's a nice lunch smoke that I enjoy about twice a week! The Oliva Serie V Melanio Petit Corona (4.5"x46)! Perfect for lunch or anytime you're short on time!

    How about Bolivar Cofradia Petit Corona? That's a classic quick smoke and unbeatable for the money!
