Default Cigarette Size?



So, I spied on eBay a lovely little cigarette holder that I decided to pick up on the cheap because it's pretty. I also had this crazy idea that maybe one of these petite cigars I had might fit into the cigarette holder. No go. This makes a grand total of 2 cigarette holders that I own (though, the one that looks like what Audrey is holding is somewhat missing), and I don't smoke cigarettes. Does anybody happen to know of petite cigars or something similar the same size as cigarettes? Just a thought.

Yes, I do (if I haven't lost it) own one of those little machines to make your own cigarette if you've got the paper tubes. If anybody makes their own cigs using quality tobacco and has some tips to share, I'd be up to listening

I found some Matacan #9 cigars at the bottom of a cooler ther other day. They look to be about cigarette diamter, but as for smoking them...

What's the diameter of the openings in the holders? Or what is the diameter of a cigarette? All I can find is "usually less than 10mm" which works out to 25rg.

Unless they were explicitly banned recently, there were tons of brands of "little cigars" (IE the filtered brown paper cigarettes) on the market. If that's not your cup of tea, Altadis makes a HUGE lineup of cigarillo sized smokes from all brands such as Onyx, Montecristo, RyJ, H. Upmann, and others. Many of which are cigarette sized.

Davidoff makes the aromatic cigarillo line which is a smaller RG.

CAO makes the cigarillo lines in Brazilia and Gold that I know of, both are smaller RG.

In general, you're looking for something that's like 15-20 RG I think.

Rob, JRs is still running their Tin Mania sale. F'instance, you can get 50 Upmann Cambios and 50 Partagas Puritos for under $70 shipped. I'm pretty sure both would fit in you Holly Golightly holder, but you could likely find a tin in your local B&M to confirm - or at worst, head over to Burlington.

The Don Lino Habanitos in the closeout section at Taboo seem to be cigarette size (I just received two tins) and you sure can't beat the price!

Davidoff makes cigarillos and mini-cigarillos that are roughly cigarette sized. I have a box of Silver Mini Cigarillos that aren't a bad smoke to get a quick 5 minute hit of cigar flavor.

You could just buy Cohiba cigarettes; cigar tobacco in a cigarette.
