What’s the Obsession with Big, Beefy Smokes?

What’s cracking cig nigs! Lately I’ve noticed a disturbing trend in the cigar industry. It’s becoming nearly impossible to find a cigar that is less girthy than a gravid corn snake.

I mean, just browse the pages of CI’s catalog. Every cigar looks like something that would be tough to stuff inside a Maxim rubber. Everything is 50, 60 ring gauge. Where are the petit Coronas or Panetelas?? I really want to buy some nice petit Coronas to enjoy when I don’t have much time. I love my Don Felo petits, but is that the only option around??
Interestingly, I notice that in Cuba this size obsession hasn’t taken hold. They still make lots of Coronas, petits and panetelas still.

If you can't find the smaller sizes you might need an eye exam.

I agree. Nothing over 52 rg for me. Mostly toros or corona gordas. Lots of lanceros lately.

Can make do with 54 if I have to, but prefer 50 or less. Corona Gorda is probably my ideal
