  • Big Ring Gauge FAD

    I will not be upset when this whole big ring gauge craze is over. Seems like that's what goes on sale more since that's what the current demand is. I'm looking forward to some nice coronas being offered as daily deals more frequently!

    We've had this discussion before - I still like the big rings much more than corona's and buy 54+ whenever possible, but I'll be happy when the full-body fad is over. Enough with the cigars who's biggest selling point is "NICOTINE! AND LOTS OF IT!!". Bring back the balanced cigars.

    I want to be candid with you, for candor is a compliment, it speaks of trust and assumes good faith.

    +1/2. Flavor/balance first; body is secondary for me. BUT, I typically prefer a 50 or less ring guage. So I guess I'm waiting for two trends to fade...lol

    +1 I love a corona or a lancero cigar much more than anything over 54. I don't have a problem with full bodied cigars as long as they are also full flavor and not harsh.

    Lanceros are soon to change that. Be on the look out for changes, I bet several will make cigar of the year.

    I started smoking cigars last year, so a 50 rg is small to me. I have not had a cigar smaller. I don't have any problem with larger rg cigars. Maybe I am missing something.

    I prefer the 50--56 RG. Not really a fan of smoking a straw or a limb. Length around 5--6.5 Balance is much more important than strength but I find many cigars just to mild.

    when i first started smoking i loved big ring gauge like the nub with a 64 ring gauge the other day light one up and was like holly *** this is huge. I am a fan of smaller ring gauges like 50 is a good size but i am starting to become a bigger fan of the cornas. Also i am not a full bodied guy either, i am more full flavor and medium to full bodied, i want lots of flavor with little body.

    If you've never had a cigar under a 50 ring gauge, then, yes... you are definitely missing something. Get some lanceros, lonsdales, coronas, and corona gordas in your life ASAP. If you like flavorful cigars, then try some smaller rings of blends you like. The great wrapper to filler ratio makes a huge difference, as the flavor comes from the wrapper, not the seco and volado used for combustion (of which there is a lot more, drowning out your flavor producing leaves in big ring gauges)

    Been smoking cigars for about 30ish year? (on and off) Anyway, I've seen many different sizes during that time, but a 54 RG is as big as I can enjoy, and that does depend on the cigar. The Cohiba Sublimes was only made in that RG, and I think it's a great cigar, yet I have truly enjoyed much smaller cigars. I'm mixed. I'm glad to try a large RG to see how it is, and I like the H. Upman Magnum 50, but these are about the largest in any humidor that I own.
