Do you have a specific ring gauge (or small range of gauges) that you prefer to smoke? If so, what is the reason for your preference?

I prefer Ring gauges of 42-50 as I find I get the amount I smoke I like without having to puff too hard. Also, thicker ring gauges burn a touch cooler than thinner ring gauges.

Beyond a 50 ring gauge I find the cigars to be too big to fit comfortably in my mouth....

I think the Julieta #2 is the perfect ring size. What size is that? I'll smoke larger. I tried the Montecristo Edmundo and I loved the flavor but the size of the cigar just felt awkward. I don't know if getting used to larger ring sizes is something that just takes practice though so I'm not ready to discount it yet

The RyJ #2 is a petit corona which is a 42 ring gauge.

That's exactly how I feel. I've smoked cigars that are bigger than a 50, but that isn't my preference and I won't buy any that are bigger. If someone hands me one though that's a whole different story!

Yeah, I'm not about smoking something that only gives me taste satisfaction. If I feel like I have to fight with it, then it's not worth smoking. I want it to burn nicely and fit comfortably.

I prefer medium to thick gauge cigars, from 40 to 48. I feel better with such cigars in my mouth.

Carlos, I think it's about 45 min - 1 hour 30 minutes, depending on the length of the cigar and your smoking rhythm.

I prefer a large ring gauge, typically in the 50's.  For me, one of the enjoyable things about cigars is the feel of a really nice wrapper.  Having a cigar large enough to be slightly cumbersome to hold causes me to keep my attention on the cigar, enhancing my enjoyment of the feel of the wrapper.

And the idea of a 'big fat cigar" is just more...well, a mental attitude for me.
