Why Cigar Size and Shape Matters

Q. If all other things are equal, tobacco blend, binder, wrapper, age, how does the shape of a cigar affect the smoking experience? – Bob Pletta

A. In the case of a Figurado, like a Torpedo or Pyramid, the tapered head concentrates the smoke for a fuller flavor. Square-pressed or box-pressed cigars burn longer (allegedly). The wider the cigar, generally the more full-flavored. A long cigar, like a Churchill, that’s also wide, will smoke cooler, whereas a Petit Corona will smoke a bit hotter. But the blend is the key factor. I smoke a lot of Robustos, but lately I’ve found that I like Lonsdale sizes more in certain brands. Try different shapes within the same brand until you find the one you like best.
