Cigars:Size Matters

 I have always wondered why a smaller gauge cigar seemed to have tons more   flavor than their larger counterparts. After some talking with fellow cigar dudes….I think I got it.

The taste of a cigar comes mostly from the wrapper, not the filler. So in a smaller gauge cigar ( say a Corona) you are a higher wrapper to filler ratio. A larger counter part is going to have a smaller wrapper to filler ratio.

Also, a smaller gauge cigar burns faster and that makes it burn hotter. This makes for a fuller flavor experience.
