33 Ring Gauge

Cohiba Cuban Mix When you grab a cuban cigar 33 Ring Gauge, the first point of focus is on the size of that ring gauge. The width of the cigar measured in 1/64 inch increments. A 32-ring gauge is a one-half inch, while a 64-ring gauge is a whole inch in diameter. While this is enormous, most cigar fall between a 32- and 52-ring caliber.


The ring indicator has a notable effect on smoke cooling. A more large-caliber cuban cigar will generally have a more natural draft. This is because filler sheets have more access to oxygen, making them burn more easily. Increased airflow makes the smoke cooler, making any session more enjoyable. If you like to smoke your cuban cigar lightly, a massive ring gauge will be more attractive.

On the other hand, smoking a more modest caliber ring will be very different. Here are a few options Vegueros, Cuban Montecristo, and Cohiba Siglo V. Many compare the attraction to downing a thick smoothie through a straw. The jerk will be noticeably harder, and the smoke will be a little harder. This is not intended to discourage the enjoyment of cuban cigar with smaller rings. Some people prefer to huff and puff during a smoking session, so let your preference be your guide.

Another circumstance to consider when determining a ring gauge is comfort. Holding a fat cigar between your teeth will make you drool, which will moisten the cigar and spoil the taste. This means that most of the weight will have to be supported by your lips. Not everyone has identical mouth size, so size preference depends solely on the person.
