igars come in
many different shapes and sizes. There are two measurements length
and ring gauge.
Length is shown
in inches. Ring gauge refers to the diameter of the cigar which
is measured in 64ths of an inch. For example, a cigar which has
a ring gauge of 42 is 42 / 64ths of an inch in diameter.
A cigar that
has the same ring gauge at both the head and the foot is considered
a traditional cigar.
Examples of traditional cigars are shown below, including the range
of size variations you can expect to find between brands.
