Newbies to the cigar world can get overwhelmed by the variety of cigars. They come in so many shapes, sizes, and blends that one can become very confused. It is important to find a size that works for you.
The size of a cigar is written length x ring gauge. The length is measured in inches long. Ring gauge measures the thickness of a cigar. A ring gauge of 32 is relatively thin, while a ring gauge of 60 is very thick. A thicker cigar will burn cooler. Some cigars are made to be wider at the foot for cooler burning, and thinner at the cap for ease of holding between your lips.
