    I generally prefer cigars with a ring gauge 50 or below. I will smoke a 52 and have had up to a 56, but at that size, unless it is boxed pressed, doesn’t feel good in my hands or mouth.

    I really don’t like the super-thick ones either. I had a 6×60 recently that was more trouble than it was worth, just from a “managing the cigar” perspective. For me, the ideal vitola is a churchill. I’ve had gigantes before and … meh.

      Churchill… that’s a pretty long cigar. I like them, but rarely have time for them these days. A corona extra or toro (6 by 46 to 50) is right for me.

        Most of my cigar time is spent reading the news on my tablet. I have, on any given night, about 1,200 headlines to parse across dozens of news sources. I obviously don’t read them all, but I usually spend roughly 90 minutes a night just reading and enjoying a cigar and cocktail.

          The other problem with those 60-ring gauge smokes is they can go out pretty quickly since they smoke so cool.
