More than half of the cigars imported into the United States are from the Dominican Republic. One of the most famous cigar makers who fled Cuba in 1959 to go to the Dominician Republic was Carlos Torano. He arrived with Cuban tobacco seeds and made varieties of tobacco that would become known as piloto cubano. There are many kinds of small cigars, not just from the Dominican Republic but also from Nicaragua, Honduras and the Netherlands, to name just a few.

Romeo y Julieta Romeos

Romeo y Julieta Romeos are small cigars imported from the Dominican Republic. They are known for their flavour, which comes in natural and maduro. These cigars are mellow and medium bodied and come in tins or boxes of 10. These cigars are high in quality and made from a handmade blend and then machine rolled with Indonesian wrappers that make them smooth to smoke.

Cafe Creme Cigarillos

Cafe Creme are reasonably priced small cigars that come in tins of 10 from the Henri Winterman company. These cigarillos come from the Netherlands and are a mild-bodied smoke. The cigarillos come in various varieties: Aroma, Mild Blue, Noir, French Vanilla and original. The Noir variety offers a blend using tobacco from Java, Brazil and the Dominican Republic and is wrapped in a dark Brazillian wrapper. The Cafe Creme Blue is described as slightly sweeter than the Cafe Creme filter cigarillos, and smooth and mild with a nice aroma.

Davidoff Mini Cigarillos

The Swiss company Davidoff offers mini cigarillos that come in boxes of 10, 20 and 50. These high-quality cigarillos are made from Dominican tobacco and have a light to medium flavour. These cigarillos are more expensive than the Cafe Creme. Davidoff cigar tobacco leaves are grown in areas chosen for their outstanding climate and soil conditions and are matured for up to four years. Harvests are blended to give consistent aroma, combustion and flavour.

E. Noble Petit

E. Noble Petits are small cigars made in Denmark. These cigars come in three varieties: Sumatra, Dominican and Fine Sumatra. These small dry cured cigars come in boxes of 20. The Dominican variety is rich, woody and sweet in flavour. The Sumatra has a spicy taste and the fine Sumatra is slightly lighter.
