I had some annoying burn issues with many of the 60+ size sticks I was obsessed with for the past 6 months. I'm now learning that smaller ring sizes (and vitolas other than "gigante" or "gordo") are my friend! :nod:

This is the thickest cigar I have ever smoked. It is a 5 1/4 X 66

Seem somewhat smooth yet pack a nice flavor. Can smoke to a nub. Ash gets a little frayed. Four down so far without issue. Would buy again.

I always go for the darker cigars and this one lured me in. The wrapper was oily and had just a few veins. This one was mouthwatering to behold. ...
