Yes and no. We sell cigars in the Corona size but I am not going to ship you a six pack of beer.  The cigar industry has come up with a plethora of names to describe cigar sizes and shapes.  In addition, cigars are now available in many more dimensions than were available in the past and many manufacturers have created their own names for certain sizes. It is not uncommon to find two cigars of the same size made by two different companies, sporting different names to describe the size.

We design our blends to work with a variety of sizes. The size of the cigar, small or large, indicates the length of time one will invest in the smoke. Needless to say, the smaller the cigar, the shorter the smoke; and the larger the cigar, the longer the smoke. Sometimes an individual may not have an hour and a half to smoke a Presidente ( big MF cigar) or the cigar is blended for a certain flavor profile and specific sizes/shapes ensure they taste exactly as designed. We offer our cigars in a large variety of sizes and if your heart is set on something we don’t have on the website, shoot us an email and we can more than likely accommodate!!

Here are some standard cigar sizes used by most manufacturers, regardless of country of origin:

Cigars have two primary measurements:

  1. The diameter (called the ring gauge).
