    I've been steering away from the XL ring sizes due to burn issues, but I'm sure that's not the only reason why so many on the forum prefer to avoid them...So forgive me if this a nebulous question, but generally speaking, what is the correlation (if any) between cigar flavor and vitola size...

    Good morning all, and happy Friday!:woohoo: 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: State the case for smoking your...
  3. Want to Buy (WTB)
    I have exhausted myself looking near and far for any vitola of Satori and cant seem to come up with any! So now I turn to you, my fellow BOTL's and SOTL's. If anyone has one, two, or preferably a 5er they are willing to part with please let me know. Thanks!

    I've been doing a lot of reading up around here and have noticed (generally) that when someone recommends a particular stick, they also recommend the size as well. For example, I see people raving about the Anejo Shark, not so much about the other vitolas. If I buy a different vitola, for...

    Hey gang, it's been a long year of extensive oral surgies for me. But it seems I am emerging just in time to enjoy some of the best smoking weather of the year. The problem is, my mouth isn't 100% yet and as I peer into my Humi, I'm rather intimdated by the selection of large sticks I have...

    Wondering what the origin of the Salomon vitola is? I strongly suspect it was named after one of the Salomon Rothchilds, just as the "Rothschild" was...

    Thought it was interesting having the largest and smallest OpusX vitolas together,so here they are..the "A",which comes in it's own cute box and the Pussy,which does not. I am airing out the "A" for New Years night..the Pussy will be absorbed later today. If the Pussy lasts an hr. how long...

    I'm loving the HdM E2 and I'm about to pull the trigger on a couple boxes. So, with the understanding that everybody has different taste... Which vitola do you prefer and why do you prefer it over the epicure No2? can't believe I started with a three pack...

    I would love to have a poster-size chart of all the different vitolas with pictures, as I know there are over 100. Has anyone seen anything like this? I think it would be very cool framed on my office wall:ss

    Just wanted to get an idea of how we fall out here with regards to preferred vitola. This list is obviously not all inclusive but represents the more common sizes....select "other" if yours is not reflected.

    Guys, I recently had a couple of the DPG Blue Firecrackers (3x50), and since I liked 'em, I want to try the fuller experience of a larger vitola. So I ask you: which do you like better, the Invictos or the Generosos?

    I love this vitola, but I've never seen a box of them for sale. I suppose the Artisan is the next best thing, but I want more Atomics! Anyone know if 5 Vegas even sells the Atomic vitola by the box? Atomic - 4.5" x 54 Artisan - 5" x 52

    Just thought I'd share some ****...new Gurkha Shaggy Salomone. It's 8 X 58! I haven't smoked one yet - I'm guessing it will be a 1 1/2 to 2 hour smoke.

    Good day all!:) I tried "search".:) Vitola=The size of a cigar is measured by two dimensions: its ring gauge (its diameter in sixty-fourths of an inch) and its length (in inches). Have you ever bought/been gifted/been bombed...etc....a cigar and forget or have no idea what vitola it is....or...

    I'll keep this one short. This was a pretty decent cigar. Good draw, decent burn and I liked the taste better than the Brazilia and the Italia. The taste didn't blow me away though, and IMO it's not worth the premium you'd pay over the brazilia or the italia. I'm happy I tried it, but I...

    I think 'vitola' means a cigar made with tobaccos from the same area. For instance a cuban cigar would be a vitola...am I right? What exactly is a 'puro'?
