CIGAR SIZES AND RING GAUGE GUIDE

I previously wrote under the topic "Cigar smoking" of the different sizes and ring gauges. The following charts are quite useful in better understanding this topic.

Henk, these “donkie drolle” you refer to are called Culebras. :lol: Culebra is the Spanish word for “snake” and a finished Culebra looks like a group of snakes that are coiled together and tied off on each end. Although it won’t be wrong if you leave the cigars bound together and smoke them all at once Culebras should actually be smoked individually and shared among friends. Culebras are made by starting with 3-4 panatela-sized cigars that are purposely under-filled to allow the cigars to be braided without cracking or breaking the wrapper on the cigars. The tobacco must be moistened more than usual so that they remain flexible and are easily braided without ruining the wrappers or the cigars. It is said that the cigar was intended more for novelty than anything else.
