Smaller Vitolas

benskibenski Posts: 24 ✭✭
I am personally a fan of the vitola that is smaller in size - typically the maximum I enjoy is a Robusto - 5x50. I find the Trinidad Reyes 4 3/8" at a 40 ring gauge and the Pete Johnson Tatuaje Cabaiguan Guapos Petite Corona Maduro particularly suits this format - at 4.6"x42. The Cohiba Siglo I has a similar dimension. Of the cigars available at Cigar.com I'd welcome your input as to what blends in a handmade format... suit the more petite end of the scale. 

Cheers

    The Sobremesa is real good in the short Churchill and I hear the short Torpedo is also good.
    I'll gladly bomb you Tuesday for an Opus today.

    Lots of people do. You get more of the wrapper vs filler. Some cigars I only like in a smaller size some I prefer in a bigger size. It depends on the blend, especially if it comes from 3 or more countries. Then I’m a big advocate of a larger ring gage. But anything over 60, I just didn’t like how it feels in my mouth. ;)

    I sure am glad you went ahead and mentioned the "more wrapper to filler ratio thing" Ricky. It's required, whenever the talk turns to smaller rings.  I think it's a rule or law or somethin'.

    That’s what she said!!!!
    Cigars were made to be smoked, whiskey was made to be drank and women were made to be loved. The only thing I try to age is myself.

    I recall fondly the green-label House blend from cigar.com back in 2009/2010 which came in a small size which was very pleasant. The CAO Brasilia is the closest thing that you can get these days.

     The Sobremesa I had not previously encountered.

    Any chance of some more recommendations of smaller, very tasty cigars?
