Default Best Quick Smokes

Just wondering what's your favorite quick smoke (petite corona), at a good price point, ready to smoke rott, preferably but not necessarily in 5 packs, non Cuban and easily accessible? I really like Baitfish but prices keep going up and up: thanks CA community!!

IMHO, all better than Baitfish:

La Palina Kill Bill - (while its a PC, it smokes slow...so maybe not so quick)
RomaCraft Aquitaine Pestera Muierilor - HTF at the moment, though
Illusione Fuma D'Amour Lagunas
L'Atelier Surrogates Cracker Crumbs
J. Fuego Origen Originals
LP Papas Fritas

I just looked in my 'dor and realized I should have mentioned that Oliva makes the Series V and V Melanio in a petite corona - the No.4. Nice but not cheap.

CI is selling Oliva seconds that are surprisingly good--including the PC size, in their weekly deal here:

Surprised no one mentioned Tatuaje Petit Cazadores Reserva.

I'm liking the new Black Works Studio Rorschach right now.

Red Lion Cheroots. 5 x 34. 60ct box. $39.99 (and cheaper on the devils site when available). One little firecracker of a stick!
